Network Video Recorder Systems

Cathexis Network Video solutions enable video to be seamlessly integrated with the organizations operating processes.

The Cathexis software can be managed and used from any workstation on the network and from remote locations by multiple users. The Network Video Recorder (NVR) is associated with IP-network based camera systems. The NVR can be situated anywhere on the IP network, local or remote, and processes encoded video streams from IP cameras each with their own unique IP address.

Video Encoders

The Sam3 products integrate analogue cameras into security systems by means of an Ethernet network. In applications where an Ethernet network already exists, this is a significant cost-saver as it does away with the requirement for cabling. With the Power over Ethernet option there is also no need for external power feeds to the encoders. Conveniently, there is no hardware installation or addition IP camera licenses required on the CathexisVision VMS NVR (Network Video Recorder) – each of the SAM3 inputs encode an analogue camera feed, converting it to a high quality digital format, which is transmitted as a digital feed to the CathexisVision VMS NVR. The encoders integrate seamlessly into the CathexisVision VMS user interface so that each appears as simply another camera on the site. The compression ratio and resolution can be scaled independently for each encoder, providing optimum image quality under all conditions. This also enables flexible customisation of encoders to optimise the network band- width.

Keyboards and Joystick Controllers

These keyboards have been designed specifically to meet the needs of Video Management System (VMS) operators. The keyboards are fully programmable, providing exceptional integration with CathexisVision VMS functions. With an ergonomic design and pleasing textured black finish, the Cathexis KBD-3000/KBD-3100 are both an aesthetic and a functional effective complement to the powerful CathexisVision VMS.

The KBD-3100 has identical features to the KBD-3000 but with an added USB connection.

KBD 3000/ 3100

  • Fully integrated with VMS
  • Responsive PTZ joystick
  • 28 x 2 character LCD display
  • Fast key-selection of cameras, presets, monitors, outputs, camera tours and screen layouts
  • 4 soft keys enable software-configurable options
  • Keyboard LCD display writable by VMS
  • RS-232 (DB9) or RS-422 (RJ45) – both KBD-3000 and KBD-3100
  • USB 2.0 (Type B) – KBD-3100 only
