The Kollector® Force combines a robust video management and storage solution that enables you to simultaneously capture, view and store high-quality, high resolution voice, video and data for a comprehensive security solution. The Force helps security organisations reduce system ownership costs, streamline operations and deliver more effective security.

The Force has the power to bridge the transition from analogue to IP camera installations. It can record 16 analogue cameras and encode the analogue inputs for use by the VMS. An additional 8 IP channels can also be recorded, and managed by the system, all with real-time frame rate at 4CIF resolution.

Proven in daily operation in thousands of customer installations worldwide, the Force features an embedded operating system designed for enhanced security and superior reliability. The ViconNet software that powers the Force, provides an open platform that allows integration with IP cameras, including megapixel cameras, encoders and IP edge devices from numerous industry-leading manufacturers.

The Kollector Force provides internal hard drive and internal RAID-5 models. The non-RAID model has external iSCSI RAID device connection capability to extend the total recording time well beyond the limits of the internal hard drives.The system is designed to scale to thousands of cameras with additional Kollector Force models or any of the ViconNet VMS products. Add storage or additional capability as it’s needed when it’s needed.
