Remote Video and Audio Transmission system
The FastTX remote video transmission product is
the benchmark for live transmission of
outstanding quality video and audio. Developed
to satisfy the most stringent requirements,
FastTX encompasses years of technological
leadership of the video transmission market for
security and surveillance applications.
FastTX utilises LAN/WAN network systems or data
links to protect and monitor your sites, 24
hours a day, anywhere in the world.
Remote, multi-site management
Centralised management to improve efficiency and
reduce personnel costs. Live video, two-way
audio, remote camera control and flexible
integration capabilities provide full remote
site surveillance and control eliminating the
need for on-site security staff. Efficient and
fast transmission technology, even over slow
data links, provides complete surveillance
capabilities. Multiple users can view live
activity without comprising site security.
No Alarms Missed
Automatic transmission and storage of high
quality snapshot image sequences from six
concurrent alarm events eliminates the threat of
Rapid and accurate assessment of site activity
is provided by the display of high quality
stored alarm images in a split screen format.
Outstanding Picture Quality
Using state of the art digital video compression
techniques, FastTX provides rapid initial image
transmission and the fastest updates of all
activity. Outstanding picture quality is
maintained regardless of the link speed.
Comprehensive Remote Control
Industry standard serial interfaces allow easy
integration with a wide variety of telemetry,
matrix switcher, access control and image
High Quality Audio
Integrated listening ability assists in the
alarm verification process, while transmission
of the operator's voice to the site provides
instant intruder control. FastTX uses
sophisticated audio compression techniques to
ensure that high quality; bi-directional audio
uses the minimum possible bandwidth of the
FastTX can be installed to be fully compliant
with British Standard, BS8418. This standard
specifies superior quality equipment, best
practice installation and monitoring
requirements that will ensure long term, high
performance operation for the end user.
