Lanner Introduces Central Monitoring System for IP Video Surveillance

Lanner Electronics Inc, a global leader in embedded and industrial computing hardware, is pleased to announce its Central Monitoring System for IP video surveillance. Lanner’s Central Monitoring System (CMS) is a highly-integrated IP video surveillance system that enables any-to-any multi-vendor device interoperability, ideal for integration in an existing analog or IP surveillance operation. CMS allows customers to create high caliber video surveillance systems that optimize price, performance, and function.

CMS gives customers the option of enhancing their current analog system or upgrading to a superior IP based system, both with networking ability. Lanner developed the Central monitoring System in response to the increasing trend of using IP video surveillance. In the last two years alone the growth for IP surveillance systems and DVR’s has out stripped analog solutions.

The CMS solution supports up to thirty-two VS-F041 video servers and can manage up to 128 channels video in-put on terminal monitor screens. The VS-F041 video server runs on an embedded operating system; it includes chipset for MPEG4 encoding, a 10/100 Fast Ethernet (RJ-45) for video streaming, four BNC video inputs, one audio input / one audio out-put, and four Digital I/O.

CMS features built-in motion detection for 9 sensitive areas, streaming parameters configurations, auto-device detection and configuration via a friend user interface. Other benefits include advanced display, recording and playback options. The PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) camera function can be managed locally or remotely via 4 directional buttons.

The CMS makes the remote management of video surveillance an easy job. For long term non-stop system operation, the CMS supports up to 42 hard disk drives for video storage and automatic cyclic overwrite. Furthermore, a built-in Watchdog application ensures that the storage location is auto switched from a failed storage device to a backup storage device in case of full capacity or failure.
