VideoIQ, a provider of video surveillance solutions, has partnered with IPVision Software to produce a solution enabling clients to use the latest “4G” cellular wireless systems to access live and recorded video, the companies say in a written statement.
The partnership allows clients to access video across leading 4G networks, the companies say. In addition, with 4G-network access, clients can rapidly deploy a comprehensive surveillance solution without having to install an on-site wired or wireless network, dramatically reducing costs and installation time.
The joint VideoIQ and IPVision Software solution includes VideoIQ’s iCVR line of high definition and “D1” cameras and encoders with up to half a terabyte of full onboard NVR storage for months worth of recording and IPVision Software’s “Virtual Video Recorder” (VVR), the statement says.
Using VideoIQ’s onboard storage, the video is indexed and stored directly on the cameras and encoders, eliminating the need for expensive centralized storage as well as for backhaul video for recording, VideoIQ says.
IPVision Software’s VVR provides immediate access to live and recorded video from any camera on-demand and when real-time alerts are received – providing customers with access any time and from any location, IPVision says.
VideoIQ iCVR-HD high definition cameras, iCVR dome cameras, iCVR encoders and iCVR traditional box cameras each include up to half a terabyte of intelligent, onboard NVR storage for a month’s worth of recording. With full onboard NVR storage, VideoIQ iCVR cameras and encoders eliminate the need to back-haul video to centralized storage – reducing bandwidth consumption by more than 90 percent compared to traditional surveillance systems and the external servers to store the video. And with VideoIQ’s iCVR-HD high definition camera, customers can record and retrieve full 1080p/30 frame per second video without being constrained by network capacity.
“With VideoIQ’s category leading onboard storage, our joint customers can install a proven, intelligent surveillance solution even more rapidly than ever before,” said Mark Felberg, founder and CEO of IPVision Software. “And with access to leading 4G networks, customers can now deploy with virtually no on-site infrastructure and access their surveillance system whenever and wherever they are.”
The IPVision Software Virtual Video Recorder is an easy to deploy and use video management platform that delivers camera and storage scalability while significantly reducing initial and ongoing system costs, the company says. Those benefits are achieved by leveraging an open, but inherently different architecture from the 50-year old CCTV technology used by DVR and NVR products.
