The art of media synchronisation

Product Profile

Most people tend to think that the information presented to them on the screen ought to be in sync. However, satisfying this seemingly simple expectation requires some fairly complex technology. The Siqura A-80 offers a solution to easily incorporate synchronised audio into even the most demanding video surveillance application. 

A complete audio and CC solution, Siqura's eight-channel Siqura A-80 offers a compact audio and contact closure (CC) solution for any existing or new CCTV system. In combination with the Siqura multi-channel video codecs, the Siqura A-80 offers an ideal lip-synchronisation solution. The audio inputs support either line-level or microphone-level with additional biasing to power electret microphones. 

Fitting into the network eight digital inputs can be configured to initiate CC signals, for example, to activate a network video recorder (NVR) to start recording. Four digital outputs are also available, allowing the A-80 to connect with third-party devices, such as a programmable logic controller. Moreover, the A-80 is designed to comply with the worldwide adopted standards for streaming audio, making integration easy and hassle-free. 

The Siqura A-80 is part of the Siqura product line, an extensive collection of video surveillance equipment offering complete solutions and reputed for quality and reliability.
