Robust outdoor wireless surveillance system.

Strix Systems : 28 January, 2008  (New Product)
Strix and Dotworkz co-operate to develop wireless video surveillance system in robust weather proof enclosures for harsh external applications.
Strix Systems and Dotworkz Systems have announced the availability of the highest performance, Integrated Wireless Video Surveillance System (IWVS) - the industry's only integrated wireless mesh network system specifically designed for optimal high-quality delivery of IP Video surveillance over wireless/WiFi mesh networks in a single easy to deploy packaged design.

Strix Systems patented high performance hardware and software are integrated into the Dotworkz D2 unique vandal-proof weather resistant enclosures for IP-enabled Intelligent Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras. The integration of Strix Access/One Edge capabilities give the IWVS the ability to achieve robust, continuous high throughput and low latency via Strix intelligent radio algorithms that dynamically adjust to the environment. Maximum power enables the greatest signal strength, receive sensitivity and optimal channel selection for the most robust wireless connectivity and highest achievable throughput.

The IWVS includes high power 802.11a and is the industry's only wireless video solution supporting the most rigid compliance to high-power 4.9 GHz for public safety deployments. 802.11a and 4.9 GHz radios provide secured/encrypted WiFi access to the wireless mesh network. IP Video is switched at high-speed between radios and the IP camera connected Ethernet port while Strix Virtual/One and Strix Priority/One provide packet prioritisation and Quality of Service throughout the network for the most reliable, uninterrupted streaming of high quality video. Layer 2 Network Address Translation (NAT) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) enable self-configuration which is fully manageable by Strix Systems Manager/One and a compliment of industry leading SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) managers. Video and recording management is enabled by the IP Video surveillance camera and/or client-server application of choice. The IWVS optionally includes an 802.11g radio for localized wireless client/user access supporting voice, video and data applications.

'The Integrated Wireless Video Surveillance System provides excellent performance and has proven itself to be a valuable solution for our customers," said Sandy Bendremer, vice president, Galaxy Internet Services, "for our public safety installations, officers connect to the IWVS from anywhere on the wireless mesh network to view live or recorded video.'

The IWVS's performance and range enable a wide range of applications creating an end-to-end video broadband wireless experience. Not only for stationary applications, the IWVS can be utilized for stationary, semi permanent or strategic and even mobile applications. The IWVS comes in a variety of configurations including: D2 COOLDOME for climates where temperatures reach a scorching 150 F (66 C) or higher. The thermo-electric solid state cooling system automatically maintains temperatures of 45 F (25 C) utilizing high-flow fans to remove heat without air exchange into the sealed housing, control humidity which causes lens fogging and component corrosion. Alternatively, the D2 "RING OF FIRE" heated interior system provides 360 degrees of radiant heat around the interior to prevent cameras and components from freezing in climates down to -40 F (-40 C).

"The IWVS marks a significant achievement in the surveillance industry and public safety," said Steve Coffelt, Director of Product Management for Strix Systems. "It's not only the most robust wireless video surveillance solution in the industry, it's unattainable by others trying to emulate our performance, power and versatility."

"The IWVS is a state-of-the-art system that is a much needed addition for public safety, municipal and industrial enterprise WiFi mesh broadband networks," said Rob Timm, president of Connectronics. "We're excited to add the IWVS to our current set of Strix Access/One Edge and Strix Access/One Mesh products we distribute".
