TeleGuard® SiteView Fastscan

The High Bandwidth Video & Audio transmission system

SiteView introduces the next generation of video transmission products. Developed to satisfy the most demanding requirements. SiteView encompasses years of technological leadership of the video transmission market for security and surveillance applications.

Setting new benchmark for live transmission of outstanding quality picture and audio, SiteView utilises LAN/WAN network systems or data links to protect and monitor your sites, 24 hours a day, anywhere in the world.

Two models are available. Choose from a 20 channel transceiver or 10 channel transmitter only model.

All models have integrated high-speed pre-alarm capture, multiple levels of video resolution, superb quality bi-directional audio, high speed PTZ camera control and new generation AMK-300 external keyboard/joystick, making SiteView the product of choice.

Outstanding Picture Quality
Using state of the art digital video compression techniques, SiteView 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 storage systems.

No Alarms Missed
Automatic transmission and storage of high quality snapshot image sequences from six concurrent alarm events eliminates the threat of decoy alarms.
Rapid and accurate assessment of this site activity is provided by simultaneous display of high quality stored alarm and live images in a split screen format.
For complete analysis, the pre-alarm feature can be set to capture video images from any or all channels.

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. SiteView uses sophisticated audio compression techniques to ensure that high-quality, bi-directional audio uses the minimum possible bandwidth of the communications channel


Video Inputs
20 BNC video channel inputs (model 2020). 10 BNC video channel inputs (model 2010). 1V p/p video inputs, 75-ohm or high impedance (switchable). Colour and monochrome selection.

Video Outputs
1x BNC into a 75-ohm Output connection.
1x S-VIDEO (model 2020 only).

Alarm Inputs
20 external alarm inputs (10 on model 2010) that trigger an alarm and store images from the corresponding video channel. Programmable for contact opening or closure.

Control Outputs
Transmitter: 3 x open drain control outputs may be set via the Receiver using the AMK-300 External Keyboard. 1 x general alarm relay with contacts (N/O, N/C).

Pre-Alarm Video Capture
Up to 180 high quality pre-alarm images are captured. Time interval between images on the channel selectable from 0.5-9.0 seconds.

Post Alarm Video Capture
3 high quality images are captured for each of up to 6 concurrent alarms. Time interval between images are selectable from 0.5 to 9 seconds.

Image Transmission Rate
The first image transmission time and subsequent update rate is a function of the selected picture quality, scene complexity and communication interfaces. User selectable maximum transmission rate for efficient throttle control of network bandwidth.
Typical update rates with 10% scene changes.
Ethernet: = 25 images/second
ISDN: 128k = 25 images/second
PSTN: 33k6 = 12.5 images/second
