Advances in Video Surveillance Deliver "Plug and Go" Security over
With new emphasis on premises security, eyesite 140 delivers remote surveillance
over IP networks
Wilmington, NC (December 3, 2001) - In today's uncertain environment,
security has become a top priority for most businesses, small and large, alike.
Just ask Tom Beynon, Product Manager at Checkpoint Systems (www.checkpointsystems.com),
a developer of supply chain management and security solutions. "Our customers
are now painfully aware that their employees and their companies' physical assets
are at risk 24 hours a day. We're constantly asked, 'How can we provide our
employees with early warning tools that will let them do their jobs safely?'
or 'How can we deter break-ins and reduce losses from theft?'"
To address these concerns, Checkpoint and several other large security services
firms, such as ADI (www.adilink.com)
and Securex (www.securex.com),
have turned to Motion Media Technology and the eyesite 140, an IP-based
video transmission device for remote surveillance.
A lightweight, portable unit, the eyesite 140 provides simple, "plug and
go" installation and two-way video and audio operation over any local or
wide area IP (Internet protocol) network. New features include support for industry-standard
pan/tilt/zoom and dome cameras from such companies as Pelco, F-Line, Philips,
Panasonic, Sony, and Canon. In addition, the eyesite 140 features a special
compensation protocol that automatically adjusts for the dynamic conditions
of the Internet, delivering high quality video data even in the toughest networking
"The eyesite 140 delivered excellent video transmission at all speeds,
even the lower ones used by many retail businesses, 32 to 96 kbps," said
Beynon of Checkpoint Systems. "We transferred large amounts of data across
the LAN to see if that hurt performance. We were pleased to see that there was
no effect on the eyesite 140 or on the network's performance."
Flexible and Secure
The newest version of the eyesite 140 provides real time remote transmission
of up to 30 frames per second on up to six video inputs, including pan/tilt/zoom
and dome cameras. Dual RS-232 ports mean the eyesite can remotely control specific
features of the cameras, such rotation and focus, as well as multiplexers, matrix
switches, and other security equipment.
Secure Internet Transmission
The eyesite 140 operates over any IP-based LAN (local area network) or WAN
(wide area network). The system surpasses the capabilities of other IP-based
surveillance products through the use of a proprietary SUDS (System User
Dynamic Speeds) protocol. This allows the eyesite 140 to provide secure transmission
over the network and dynamically adjust to changes in network QoS (Quality of
Service) to provide reliable quality video even with the most challenging network
Not Your Average Web Cam
Unlike low cost Web cams that send a still JPEG image every few seconds, the
eyesite 140 delivers full-motion video using H.263 video compression. This means
the unit operates in real time, optimizing motion and video detail for lower
bit rates. The eyesite 140 outperforms similar MPEG-based systems, especially
at data rates below 160 kbps, where bandwidth and scalability are at a premium.
Price & Availability
The eyesite 140 is available immediately. Prices start at $995. Systems are
available nationwide through a distribution network, including ADI, Checkpoint,
Electronics Line USA, and Securex.
