by msecadm4921

Following the Visilynx 2, manufacturer Bewator are launching the video matrix system, V3i.

Using technology developed for a networked CCTV system for Singapore’s MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) system, Bewator reports it has tailored the technology. The V3i unit has been designed with a slim-line casing and the units can be linked if the system needs to be expanded. Accommodating up to 32 loop-through inputs with video loss detection, eight monitor outputs with on-screen text, and bi-directional telemetry allows for both twisted pair and over the coax. As well as V3i automatically responding to video loss, alarm inputs can be connected at the camera head allowing tamper switches and movement detectors to be connected into the system via the bi-directional telemetry to activate alarms in the control room, the makers say. In the event of the unit being damaged or destroyed, the configuration data and can be uploaded onto a new matrix system, the firm says.

Configuration upgrade

Configuration for the V3i has been upgraded allowing for a more straightforward installation and the self-diagnostic fault software ensures any problems during the installation stage can be immediately identified, the makers say. Two other features are available. The V3i quad card, which allows the camera images to be displayed in quad format. Up to two cards can be inserted into a V3i unit giving the option of 16 on screen displays rather than the standard eight. The IP video card when released will allow video to be transmitted between V3i nodes using IP, or will enable the system to be controlled via a Web browser.

What they say

Simon Shawley, business development manager for the video control range commented: ‘Installers are now able to configure the system via a laptop rather than using a standard system keyboard and when expanded to accommodate a large site, the use of remote access means cabling costs are significantly reduced. With an increasing number of firms looking into the possibility of digital recording, the IP video card offers an element of future proofing. The V3i can provide all the functionality required for today’s control room and ensure the system remains competitive in tomorrow’s digital market place." Compatible with both European and American standards, the system can be specified worldwide.
