Vicon Introduces New System Controller for ViconNet and Pilot Matrix Systems
Touch screen interface provides intuitive control of all video surveillance and management systems from Vicon
Hauppauge, NY, May 12, 2009: Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of integrated IP video surveillance and access control systems, introduced today a new system controller that offers compatibility with both traditional Pilot matrix switching systems and ViconNet digital video management systems. It may also be used with ViconNet's Virtual Matrix Controller that simulates the operation of a crosspoint matrix system.
The attractive, new V1500X-SCCS controller, housed in a modern silver enclosure, features a touch-sensitive LCD screen that provides control of the various systems through the use of changing menus that vary by mode. A joystick, jog/shuttle wheel and traditional keypad work in tandem with the touch screen, providing the user with an experience that is intuitive and natural and makes operation easy to master. The unit provides the ability to select cameras, monitors, presets, tours and salvos and to control standard PTZ, lens, auxillary relay, lens speed, auto-pan and auto-iris functions. Up to 8 macros can be set and recalled, each featuring up to 32 steps.
"The introduction of our new controller is an important addition to our recently launched Pilot line and open platform ViconNet 5.0 systems in that the controller is one of the most critical elements in creating a positive overall user experience," explained Margie Gurwin, Vicon's Director of Marketing. "The performance and features offered by our systems are top-of-the-line, but without an easy way for users to access the various controls, the systems' value cannot be fully appreciated. For our many customers who prefer using a traditional controller rather than a computer-generated GUI, the V1500X-SCCS will be a welcome addition to our line," she said.
