“Transmitter site security has always been a concern,” said Chuck Alexander, director of Intraplex products for Harris Broadcast Communications. “The integration of sophisticated video analytics capabilities at these remote sites has made it possible to reliably detect unauthorized entry while only transmitting video on alarm or on demand.”
Intraplex NetXpress sends multiple services, including audio, data and PBX telephone communications, over an IP connection. The video surveillance application uses low bit rate H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC video compression to send and receive multicast or unicast video, which can be viewed on one or more PCs on the IP network.
Video analytics software in the new video encoding module for the Intraplex NetXpress chassis automatically detects people entering designated areas, or objects taken or left behind, and sends alerts with still images or full-motion video over the IP network to alert personnel at the studio or security office. Alarm logs maintain records of these events along with associated images.
