Optelecom-NKF launches a number of new Siqura® video surveillance solutions

Product Profile

Optelecom-NKF launch a number of new Siqura® video surveillance solutions:

  • Siqura S-50 Codec (MPEG-2 / MPEG-4 / MJPEG)
  • Siqura C-50 Codec (temp. hardened version of S-50)
  • Siqura Operator Storage version 2.0 now released

Optelecom-NKF has deployed its breakthrough Siqura S-44 video server, a recently introduced 4-channel video codec, as part of three major subway system projects now underway around the world.

The largest installation is for the new rail line, "Line 10," of the Beijing Metro System in China and will support the transport and recording of more than 1,000 video signals.  This is the third major contract award for Optelecom-NKF from BMS and the first to feature the new S-44 multi-codec version.  The company won out over the industry's largest competitors based on S-44 superior performance, scalability, and price-per-channel.

The other two strategic project wins are subway security systems for major cities in France and Spain.  As both of these projects develop, the company anticipates and is well positioned to win additional business in the future.  These key project wins, both include the S-44, highlight the market's strong response to the S-44 series, the newest addition to the Siqura Product Family.

The S-44's design combines 4 Texas Instrument DSPs on a single board.  Each DSP can simultaneously transmit two MPEG-2/4 video streams and one motion JPEG stream, with all of them simultaneously running at full D1 resolution.  This capability to "triple stream" makes each channel available for simultaneous recording, live viewing, and screen capture.

Other features:

  • Maximum functionality with density by helping customers scale up to 44 channels into a single, 3RU rack-mountable system resulting in an extremely low cost per channel.
  • "Quad" feature makes it possible to view content in a quad split-screen configuration on any standard web browser.
