digital evolution for CCTV industry

The trend of digital evolution for CCTV industry is not in doubt. IFSEC, the well-known security show in the world, it also illustrated the importance of the IP and network technology for the security industry this year. The IP trend is foreseeable and ACTi now introduces a video server featuring with MPEG-4 ASP compliant compression.

The SED-2100R is a high resolution, Ethernet (LAN and WAN) ready digital video transmission device. Utilizing ACTi’s Arm 9 SoC and advanced MPEG-4 ASP compliant compression technology, It secures the highest possible image quality and detail resolution up to Full D1(NTSC : 720x480, PAL : 720x576). The ACTi SED-2100R delivers real-time images or live video feeds with up to 30 frames per second at NTSC video system and 25 frames per second at PAL video system. With the optimized video compression and built-in with QoS(Layer 2/Layer 3), the SED-2100R is specially designed for applications where available bandwidth is restricted and higher frame rates are required.

In addition, it supports both automatic and manual frame rate control for concurrent video stream accessing in different bandwidth. The SED-2100R also features with PPPoE, DDNS, and built-in a webserver to enable authorized users to adjust the settings of video server via remote browser. It also provides RS-485 and Digital I/O data transmission over Ethernet for product integrators or solution providers. With this system, users can build digital remote surveillance systems easily. The SED-2100R's most unique feature is coming with a traditional BNC output for video backup. With digital time code embedded, it offers the fast retrieval of recorded video.

In short, MPEG-4, Full D1, Remote, Real-time is key words that can be used in describing ACTi’s SED-2100R video server. It is currently available, and shipment can be made from ACTi.
