's enhanced Pick-a-Point
Icon Digital Matrix solution at the recent IIPSEC 2009 exhibition. This is now fully integrated with the latest range of DV-IP products, including the HighVu Excel
, DV-IP Server
, Decoder, RT
. The new Pick-a-Point Icon also has HDMI interfaces as standard allowing high definition video to be displayed on associated video walls.
Looking at the Pick-a-Point Icon system in more detail, it seamlessly brings together CCTV system components into the control room environment, providing a dedicated multi-site video management solution for medium and large scale CCTV deployments.
Pick-a-Point Icon is able to replicate the simplicity of operation associated with a traditional analogue matrix by allowing control of multiple video servers without the need for thousands of metres of cabling. It also offers the potential to build scalable video walls - including High Definition (HD) displays - that allow cameras from any number of monitored sites to be viewed simultaneously.
Said Pauline Norstrom, Director of Worldwide Marketing at Dedicated Micros: "From the start Pick-a-Point Icon from BBV has been designed to be intuitive for operators and builds on the success of earlier variants by adding new capabilities such as the display of HD CCTV and the ability to work seamlessly with Dedicated Micros' latest DV-IP systems.
Crucially, it continues to provide a familiar environment so greatly simplifying and speeding up image retrieval.
|Typical applications for Pick-a-Point Icon include: public housing schemes, town and city centre CCTV and educational establishments|
"After initial bespoke commissioning by BBV, operators can simply select cameras using Pick a-Point Icon's enhanced GUI (Graphical User Interface). Multiple map screens and highly detailed map images readily allow operators to select a camera on-screen without having to know which digital video recorder the camera is linked to.
"Unlike many virtual matrix solutions that are dependent on a PC to record, view or playback video, Pick-a-Point Icon is a stand-alone hardware based workstation which eliminates reliability and training issues associated with PC based systems."
Typical applications for Pick-a-Point Icon include: public housing schemes, town and city centre CCTV and educational establishments. Ultimately, Pick-a-Point Icon can be deployed, effectively, where there is a requirement to monitor and control a large number of sites, scattered across a wide geographical area, all from a single, centralised, control room.
