Harris Corp. will use the IBC2008 show in Amsterdam to demonstrate a new capability for its NetXpress IP platform: video monitoring.

Using the NX-AVC-1 video module broadcasters can monitor remote sites such as transmitters within the NetXpress system. Audio and video is sent over the already established NetXpress IP connections, alleviating additional construction or recurring maintenance costs.

Besides simple surveillance, alarms can be programmed into the system. Features include motion detection. The system also can be programmed to only provide video when an alarm is activated. The video module is a low-bit-rate MPEG 4/H.264 stream.

According to Chuck Alexander, director, Intraplex products, “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 an alarm or on demand.”
