New ComNet Product Increases CCTV System Reliability

ComNet SHR Product Line Seamlessly Restores CCTV Transmission Network

Las Vegas, NV. April 1, 2009, Communication Networks of Danbury, Connecticut, doing business as ComNet(TM), a manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, has introduced a revolutionary new fiber optic video product line that can seamlessly restore a CCTV network. The ComNet SHR line consists of the FVTFVR1010SHR single channel with data series, the FVT/FVR4014SHR series four video channels with four data channels and FVT/FVR8018SHR series eight video channels with eight data channels. All models are digital fiber optic video transmitters and receivers with bi-directional data that incorporate a unique self-healing feature. In the event of a broken fiber connection the video and data transmission is seamlessly re-routed when the system is configured in a ring topology. This feature, combined with ComNet product's exceptional reliability ensure a virtually failsafe CCTV network.

This network can consist of up to 8 video inputs and each must be inserted by an individual FVT1010SHR, or by two FVT4014SHR models or a single FVT8018SHR on the ring network. The ring network can have an unlimited number of FVRSHR receiver units located on it and monitoring of each of the 8 video inputs can be received and viewed from any receiver location or combination of receiver locations.

In addition, the bi-directional data transmission allows for the camera PTZ function be controlled from any monitoring location.

According to Vic Milani, ComNet VP of Product Development, "This product is unique in that it can mirror the video functionality that IP video Ethernet networks offer without the inherent complexity. This network is truly 'plug-and-play'." In comparison to Ethernet 'drop and insert' video networks, the ComNet FVT/FVR SHR products are far simpler to integrate and can be installed without trained IT personnel. They also are a more cost-effective alternative due to eliminating the need for video encoding, as well as the Ethernet network traffic management equipment. The video quality of the ComNet FVT/FVR SHR product line is very high quality, meeting RS-250C Short Haul parameters. It is true real-time 30FPS broadcast quality and not subject to the compromises encountered with current IP-video compression schemes," Milani continued.

"With the introduction of this unique video and data product series, we are just adding to what is going to be a very complete fiber optic product line.", said Skip Haight, ComNet(TM) Vice President of Marketing. "The product lines we're introducing now are the result of years of fiber optic experience and understanding of all facets of the security transmission market. But the major difference between ComNet(TM) and the other suppliers is the customer care experience we offer. ComNet(TM) is a complete full-service company and not just a product line. From the initial contact forward, our customers will be truly surprised about how good the customer experience is." Haight continued.
