Manufacturer of Siqura surveillance systems, Optelecom-NKF Inc, has announced the release of its S-68 E video server – an easy-to-install encoder that requires very little maintenance and also offers high performance and reliability. The unit has the capacity to compress and stream video in H 264 from 88 analog cameras per one 48.2cm (19in)/3U power supply cabinet. Claimed to be one of the industry’s most efficient and high-density systems, the S-68 E video server is ideal for large, professional installations where space and cost per video channel are a concern.
The S-68 is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective unit, with each module only consuming 0.9W per channel. The system uses an intuitive access-controlled web interface, which makes it possible to configure an array of features, such as the use of video motion detection (VMD) or serial data streams to control a PTZ camera or implement access control. The new video servers are also based on an open streaming architecture (OSA) standard that simplifies their use in third-party systems.
In other company news, Optelecom-NKF has announced that it has restructured its sales team to support focus and growth in its global regions. Fabien Haubert has been promoted to the role of senior sales director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, while Chuck Queri has been promoted to the position of senior sales director for the Americas. They will both join Optelecom-NKF’s leadership team. “We’re working hard to improve our sales efforts,” insists the company’s president and CEO, Dave Patterson. “Fabien and Chuck will be the driving force in fueling improvement. This new structure will be good for our company and even better for our partners. The creation of these positions allows us to deliver an even higher level of focus and service to these key regions.”
