links cameras' existing wiring into a local area network (LAN) that can be accessed by managers from any location, including the onsite security headquarters and the buildings' lobbies.
Management can even add additional IP network cameras to the system that connect with the NetImage XSO
via a wireless router.
NetImage XSO was among the most advanced technologies on display at the trade show, which brought together more than 500 exhibitors to display everything from pest control to roofing products.
NetImage XSO is a "CCTV Over IP" system that replaces old-fashioned closed circuit television networks with Internet-enabled local area networks.
The cameras within the NetImage XSO system are enhanced with behavioral intelligence software which can detect and alert security personnel to any number reportable behaviors such as a bag left unattended, movement in an off-limits area, a slip or fall down a flight of stairs or a car going the wrong way down a one-way street.
This is only the second public demonstration of NetImage XSO since its September 2004 launch.
NetImage XSO is one product within a category known as CCTV Over IP, or closed circuit television Internet protocol.
NetImage XSO (the XSO stands for extra security observation) is designed to allow a single security professional to monitor numerous surveillance cameras from a remote location over the Internet.
The XSO system also uses newly developed behavioral intelligence software to analyze what the cameras see and alert its human operators when something suspicious is detected.
The Plant Engineering and Facilities Maintenance Show marks the first public demonstration of NetImage XSO since its September launch.
We received a great response to the XSO demonstration," said Maria Gonzalez, vice president of Nortronics.
