artec integrates cutting-edge BASLER IP camera features

Artec technologies Inc is pleased very about its cooperation with Basler Inc, Ahrensburg, of one of the leading companies in the area of vision technology. Introduced in 2008, the camera series for video surveillance benefits from decades of experience in the development of cameras for product surveillance.

Multifaceted and often trend-setting features of Basler's IP cameras such as day/night functionality, the AOI (Area of Interest) function, and the multistream function are already integrated into artec technologies' MULTIEYE NET software. In addition to the AOI feature, several image-data streams with varying compression protocols can be set up in the Basler cameras. For example, customers can choose between MJPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264. Several virtual cameras can be simulated through the implementation of various image-data streams for freely selectable fields of view (AOI). This leads to significant cost savings in hardware (e.g. number of cameras) as well as in regard to bandwidth and storage requirements. These features are especially suited for use in banks and traffic applications where high-resolution detailed images in different compressions are much sought after.

In Basler Inc., a further strong associate partner for high-quality IP cameras has been found which eminently complements artec technologies' concept of providing affordable and future-oriented video surveillance solutions "Made in Germany."

VideoCenter II: call-up of web pages

The site-plan based video management software "Video Center II" is designed to poll and administer up to 10 MULTIEYE systems at the same time. This makes it possible to simultaneously open and operate in a multiscreen up to four Internet web browsers as monitor windows. Parallel to camera monitoring, a wealth of interesting third-party applications can be called up and operated in the multiscreen. Among those are e.g. the incorporation of audio editing functions, duplex telephony ("crosstalk"), video conferences, network monitoring and/or the display of webcams. In all of this, the VideoCenter II features a versatility which is without parallel. The "Favourites", with which the used-dependent multiscreen configurations are saved, can also store web address.
