VIVOTEK has announced a new cooperation between Sony’s Edge Storage Solution and VIVOTEK’s H.265 5-megapixel network cameras. This partnership enables a more reliable IP surveillance system during network dropouts and provides timely notification of microSD card maintenance requirements. Instant backup function One of the benefits of deploying IP surveillance is to ensure continuous and stable recording even during a network outage. To achieve this goal, VIVOTEK’s H.265 5-megapixel network cameras support Sony’s Edge Storage instant backup function, which ensures video is safely recorded to Sony’s microSD card with lifespan notification when any network downtime is detected. Once the connection is restored, the onboard storage of cameras is then automatically transferred to recording system. Maintenance Notification function Further enhancing the user-friendly nature of VIVOTEK’s H.265 5-megapixel network cameras is the Edge Storage Maintenance Notification function. The cameras will detect any error or warning from a failing or failed microSD card, and display the usage of spare blocks and lifespan via web browser. In addition, the lifespan information includes indication of microSD card lifetime, allowing security staff to replace it prior to expiry. This information can also be transmitted via e-mail to laptop, mobile phone, or an alarm output. With this enhanced cooperation towards an even more stable platform, users can rest assured that their data is secure, just like their business. Tim Su, Director, PM & Marketing Division, VIVOTEK Inc. stated, “VIVOTEK is the leader in superior image processing capability and system reliability. We will keep working closely with worldwide partners to offer more user-friendly features and meet the challenges of diversified markets.”
VIVOTEK has unveiled new H.265/HEVC surveillance solutions, including a series of 3-Megapixel and 5-Megapixel* network cameras, NVRs (network video recorders), and professional VMS (video management software). To maximise bandwidth and storage efficiency, VIVOTEK introduces Smart Stream II technology to achieve greater cost-effectiveness. By adopting VIVOTEK’s Smart Stream II and H.265 technology, users will benefit from reduced bandwidth and data storage demands by up to 80% more than systems employing H.264. All of this allows VIVOTEK to reach a new milestone in IP surveillance, and to share this breakthrough with its users. Bring out twice the efficiency of H.264. VIVOTEK “H.265/HEVC, the new video compression technology can bring out twice the efficiency of H.264. VIVOTEK, as a leading IP surveillance solution provider, aims achieve this great achievement through its self-developed Smart Stream II technology,” says Tim Su, Director, Marketing Communication Department, VIVOTEK Inc. “VIVOTEK’s Smart Stream II technology can optimise resolutions for a desired object or area to maximise the efficiency of bandwidth usage. By combining H.265 and Smart Stream II, we are able to create the most efficient system possible.” Tim Su went on to add, “To meet market demand, we present these comprehensive H.265 solutions, including front-end megapixel network cameras, back-end network video recorders and remote video management software. Through these total solutions, customers can fully enjoy better efficiency of bandwidth and storage-saving solutions without losing image quality.” VIVOTEK will initially introduce the V-Pro H.265 network cameras, a range of 3-Megapixel and 5-Megapixel network cameras available in versatile types. Equipped with WDR Pro and SNV (Supreme Night Visibility) technology, the new V-Pro H.265 network cameras ensure high quality images under any lighting conditions. Making this range one-of-a-kind are H.265 box type network cameras, featuring a Gigabit Ethernet port and Snapshot Focus functions with faster data transmission and the ability to precisely focus cameras even for fast moving objects. For harsh environments, purpose-built outdoor bullet and vandal-proof network cameras are armed with weather-proof IP66-rated and vandal-proof IK10-rated housing to offer a wide operating temperature range from -50°C to 50°C. De-warping function As well as these advanced network cameras, VIVOTEK also introduces two H.265 compatible NVRs, the 32-channel ND9541, and 16-channel ND9441. Both NVRs fully support H.265 video compression technology and up to 24TB storage capacity with 4 hard disk trays, which offer 30% to 50% more recording capacity compared to other systems equipped only for H.264 compression. Further, a de-warping function enables a panoramic image to be recorded while areas of interest are displayed in fine detail. Thanks to the EZConnect APP, users are able to remotely monitor their surveillance system from any iOS or Android device at any time, from anywhere. Finally, VIVOTEK releases the new generation of VMS, VAST Version 1.11. This new version supports the H.265 codec and a software license. By implementing a software license, users no longer need to worry about the cost or the risk of damage to a USB dongle. Meanwhile, users can use the free default 32-channel license, which can be securely relocated to anywhere, instantly. The new VAST Version 1.11 also features a built-in Intelligent Alarm Management function, which empowers security staff to record the alarm status and take notes for quick research and efficient management. VIVOTEK H.265 5-Megapixel network cameras are scheduled to be available by the end of the fourth quarter, 2015.
VIVOTEK announces the launch of its anti-ligature fisheye network camera, the CC8370-HV. This compact 3-Megapixel fisheye network camera features an anti-grip design, WDR Pro and vandal resistant housing which simultaneously ensures the safety of detainees and the efficiency of staff on duty. The CC8370-HV is specially designed for high security environments, such as detention houses, holding cells, psychiatric wards, and correctional institutions.
