New R-Vip T Network Video Server From Hirschmann Provides Live Industrial Video and Audio Transmission Via Ethernet or Internet
Pine Brook, NJ, May 29, 2002 - Hirschmann Electronics Inc., Automation and Network Solutions, a leading supplier of components and systems for industrial networking and interconnect solutions for factory and industrial automation, has introduced the R-VIP T Video Server for live video and audio transmission, using TCP/IP, over Ethernet or the Internet.
The new R-VIP T Video Server is designed to provide complete video, audio, and control data over Ethernet in harsh industrial environments, and also enables web-based management over the Internet. With an operating temperature range of 0°C - 55°C (32° F - 131°F) the compact, DIN-rail mountable R-VIP T is ideal for remote monitoring, traffic assessment, and control and documentation of manufacturing processes.
The R-VIP T supports multicasting, enabling simultaneous video and audio transmission to multiple receivers over the same network. The new server supports ITU-T standard H.323, enabling full color, high-resolution (704 x 576 pixels) video images to be transmitted at up to 30 images, per second, in addition to providing compatibility with video-conferencing systems. The video stream is available for viewing using either an Internet browser or any networked PAL/NTSC monitor (with supplied decoder software).
The new server can be combined with Hirschmann's Video or Video/Audio Transmitters (VIP-V TxC or VIP-AV TxC) and Video or Video/Audio Receivers (VIP-V RxC or VIP-AV RxC) to form a completely matched fully integrated video and audio monitoring network. A transparent bi-directional serial interface (RS232/RS422/RS485) provides a data channel for remote control of external equipment, such as pan-and-tilt camera heads or
zoom lenses. In addition, an alarm input enables an automatic connection to be established between the server and a remote location, based on an external event or trigger; a video ring memory records alarm pre-histories up to 5 minutes prior to the
The R-VIP T, through its included management system, can be configured quickly using a web browser; it also provides the capability for complete remote control of all internal functions via UDP/IP. The new server is supplied with an integral Fast Ethernet interface (10/100 Base-T), as well as switching inputs and outputs for external sensors and devices.
The R-VIP T operates at 24 V DC, and is fully compliant with industry standards for EMI/RFI. It is completely compatible with the Hirschmann Rail Line of Industrial Ethernet devices.
Pricing for the R VIP-T Video Server starts at $1,740. Delivery is from stock.
