IMIGIX LAUNCHES COMPLETE VIDEO TRANSMISSION SOLUTION FOR IP NETWORKS Friday 27 April 2001 PDF Print Imigix, the video transmission specialist, today announces iconPILOT IP, an exciting new addition to its industry leading range of remote surveillance solutions. IconPILOT IP is an integrated transmission unit that enables high quality video and audio remote monitoring across IP networks in ways that will transform the use of IP based video and remote monitoring. The product combines colour video and audio transmission with alarms and control of any camera or CCTV system in a single unit. Designed to make CCTV over IP networks reliable and genuinely usable, IconPILOT IP includes both IP and ISDN built-in as standard. IP or ISDN connections may be used independently or in conjunction with each other thanks to Imigix’s ‘Dual Mode’ technology. Either IP or ISDN modes may be instantly selected manually or by timed schedule, enabling different networks or connections to be used for different types of applications. For example, video management over IP by day and critical alarm monitoring over ISDN by night. Dual Mode also features intelligent network selection for IP monitoring in which IconPILOT IP constantly measures the available IP bandwidth. Should the IP network bandwidth fall below a required threshold at the instant of an alarm event, the unit will connect using ISDN instead, guaranteeing the quality of the transmitted video and audio. According to managing director, Richard Morgan, IconPILOT IP provides the missing link between fully controllable CCTV systems and video over IP networks. “IP represents a major growth opportunity for the CCTV industry and IconPILOT IP makes IP-based monitoring with full CCTV system control a viable solution for the first time. Now you can control your existing CCTV system over your existing IP network.” With the company’s data communications and networking background, Imigix is aware of IT managers’ sensitivity to video on their networks, so IconPILOT IP enables precise bandwidth control, putting the user back in command. Amazingly, all of this is controlled from IconPILOT IP’s built-in control panel or via Imigix’s graphical control software, Icontrol, with backwards compatibility and complete transparency to the operator. IconPILOT IP therefore integrates with existing ISDN monitored systems with full site telemetry control over IP or ISDN. - ends - About Imigix Based close to the M4 in Cardiff, South Wales, Imigix Limited was established in 1998 and was recently listed in the Top 75 UK high growth technology companies.
