Actelis (News - Alert) Networks has joined hands with Industrial Video and Control (IVC), to provide sophisticated IP-based surveillance and security networks over copper networks.
Actelis Networks is a global supplier of Ethernet over copper solutions, and Industrial Video and Control (IVC) is a manufacturer of IP-based cameras and developer of advanced software for managing networks of video systems. Both companies have developed a single integrated IP-based surveillance solution that combines IVC’s IP-based video cameras with Actelis’ ML600 family of intelligent Ethernet Access Devices (EADs).
IVC also has developed an innovative IP-based camera. When paired specifically with Actelis’ ML600 system, this camera significantly eases deployment, reduces operational expenditures, and provides more reliable and higher bandwidth broadband transmission over copper networks for advanced video surveillance.
Eric Vallone, vice president of marketing at Actelis noted that Actelis’ ML600 system can leverage power over Ethernet to power the IVC video camera. This creates a complete solution that can be remotely installed and then operated in extreme temperatures as low as -29C degrees.
Clarke Esler, product marketing manager at IVC, explained that this joint solution can simplify camera setup time and reduce the cost of installation as the Actelis ML600 system delivers both network connectivity and power to IVC’s new camera, the IVC PTZ-310-NC32.
He noted that Actelis’ elegant ML600 hardware solution, along with their enterprise-class camera management software, will be ideal for large campuses or multi-campus organizations that rely on their existing copper infrastructure.
Commenting on their alliance, Norman Fast, president and CEO of IVC said that their customers can take advantage of Actelis’copper networks and use IVC’s IP-based cameras and management software to view and store video from numerous, and potentially geographically scattered, cameras.
Esler added that considerable bandwidth is needed to deploy large, dispersed networks of surveillance cameras.
He continued: “Newer camera sensor technologies strain the bandwidth demands further by dumping many megapixels per frame onto the network. Actelis Networks’ Ethernet over copper solutions clearly provide the high bandwidth required by the latest video cameras without the excessive expense of deploying fiber.”
