Flexible and powerful, SkyNet network video solutions
enable you to remotely and cost-effectively monitor and secure people,
property and industrial processes. You can use it to conduct remote
education or troubleshooting, or broadcast sights and sounds on a Web
site. Your network video system can be as simple or as sophisticated
as you want it to be.
IP networks are flexible,
powerful and advantageous, and they are the key to providing
you with wide ranging possibilities in system design, applications
and solutions. Simply connect a SkyNet network camera (or video server
that is attached to an analog camera) directly to a computer
network by wired or wireless means, and you'll have access to live video
streams directly from your desktop with the use of a standard Web browser
on a local area network or from any location in the world via the Internet.
IP networks, in conjunction with SkyNet network video solutions,
can offer much more.
Image quality: Image quality is one of the key aspects of
SkyNet network video products, which have continued to
set the standard in the industry. In addition to developing
image processing chips and sophisticated algorithms tailored for network
camera applications, SkyNet also provides a range of video
compression standards (Motion JPEG, MPEG-4, MPEG-2) for users to choose
from. In many network video products, both Motion JPEG and MPEG-4
are supported simultaneously. This enables you, for example, to view
at full frame rate with MPEG-4 and record at the same time with Motion
JPEG, allowing for optimization in image quality and bandwidth.
ranging network video products: You can find fixed network
cameras for both indoor and outdoor applications, as well as
pan/tilt/zoom and network dome cameras that enable remote control of
pan, tilt and zoom functions over IP networks. SkyNet also
offers video servers that help analog CCTV systems take advantage of
the benefits of a digital, networked world. Video management software
and accessories such as network camera housings and devices that bridge
between analog and digital, are also available.
visually being able to see remotely from any networked computer,
anywhere and at any time, SkyNet also provides products that
enable two-way audio communication over networks. This allows you to
not only hear what's going on remotely, but also speak through the network.
With both visual and audio communication, you can question
intruders, conduct remote education, troubleshooting, or broadcast
both sights and sounds of a location or event on Web sites.
SkyNet network video products enable users to set and manage
alarm events. Once an alarm is set, either as scheduled, or
via input/outputs, video motion or audio detection, you can automatically
request that certain actions be performed; for instance, start
sending and recording images to specified destinations, send
alerts to specific individuals via e-mail or SMS to a mobile telephone,
activate lights, turn alarm on or off, open or lock doors,
control temperature levels etc.
range of triggering mechanisms (whether built into the product
or available in a software package) can be incorporated into
an SkyNet network video system.
You may schedule a time for
the network video product to perform certain actions; e.g.
start sending and recording images every evening, on weekends
or on holidays.
Many SkyNet network cameras
and video servers have input/output ports that can be connected
to doorbells, detectors (e.g. smoke, movement, sound,
temperature sensors), lights, switches and alarm relays.
When input mechanisms are triggered, you can automatically
request that certain actions be performed.
This feature essentially allows you to define
areas of a screen where you want to detect any visual changes.
When a change is detected, you may request a number of things to be
This feature allows you to set the
level of noise that would trigger the performance of certain
You can set up the network video system
to save the video data to a file server at a local or distant
location for security reasons and at certain time intervals,
or when motion is detected, for later viewing and analysis.
Images can be uploaded via e-mail, FTP or HTTP. For easier
management of video recording, storage and viewing, video
management software from SkyNet and its Application Development
Partners are available.
Power over Ethernet
With a network
video solution, you have the option of using the same Ethernet
cable both for data communications as well as power. This
feature makes it easier to install products since an electrician
is not required and the network video product is able
to operate even when there is a power failure.
SkyNet network video products provide many security features;
among them, different levels of password protected access to the products.
For example, using predefined passwords, certain people may
only have the rights to view live images with no access to the product's
configuration, while the administrator would have full
access to configure the product's settings and security
features. Another security feature is IP address filtering,
which allows only predefined IP addresses to access the
product. Some SkyNet products also provide HTTPS for encrypted
