Dedicated Micros has IP cameras in focus for enhanced Closed IPTV performance

Product Profile

Dedicated Micros - part of AD Group - is able to offer a wide range of CCTV cameras which are optimised to work in conjunction with its patent pending Closed IPTV solution. Closed IPTV is a revolutionary IP video product solution which has been brought to market by Dedicated Micros to deliver all of the simplicity and security of a traditional CCTV installation in the IP environment.

In practice, with Closed IPTV, standard or HD resolution IP cameras, such as those from Dedicated Micros' CamVu range, can be automatically identified by a suitably equipped DVR/NVR - coupled with DM's Layer 3 Enhanced CCTV Switch - as an 'exclusive' point-to-point relationship. Combining patent-pending innovation in the Application layer, with industry standard zeroconf networking technology each camera is assigned a specific network port. The key with Closed IPTV is the adoption of a deterministic set-up which means that no intervention is required and, crucially, the routing of network video is exclusively managed and tracked through an integrated switch to thwart any hacking attacks.

The cameras which Dedicated Micros recommends as part of Closed IPTV installations, to maximise the benefits of this award-winning approach to surveillance, include the extensive range of CamVu IP Mini-Domes which features day/night and Hyper-D (Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)) models that come with Power over Ethernet (PoE) or 12v DC as standard. Also best placed to be installed at the front end of Closed IPTV applications are CamVu IP Static Cameras which come in Megapixel, Hyper-D and VGA models, with the Megapixel variant offering six times the resolution of an analogue camera. In addition, a number of PTZ Domes and Cameras are also available to work in conjunction with Closed IPTV with the latest Infiniti model being a good example.

Said Pauline Norstrom, Director of Worldwide Marketing at Dedicated Micros: "In practice our award-winning Closed IPTV delivers ease of installation and enhanced security for surveillance systems working in the IP environment. At its most basic the Layer 3 Enhanced CCTV Switch, combined with a suitable Dedicated Micros' DVR/NVR, provides deterministic solutions which operate with any IP camera, and in the majority of cases the result is heightened security at the VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) or MAC access control level list with minimal intervention by the user.

"However, to truly maximise the benefits of Closed IPTV it is preferable to utilise the extensive range of Dedicated Micros' IP cameras, like our high performance CamVu IP Mini-Domes. By adopting Dedicated Micros' IP cameras as an integral part of a solution it is then possible to unlock significant, additional, Closed IPTV advantages such as fully automated IP discovery and allocation; transparent default configurations/set-up options and, crucially, 'Trusted Endpoint' technology."
