American Safe's video servers provide a reliable, user-friendly transition from CCTV to IP-Based Surveillance. These video servers receive data from the expensive analog hardware already threaded throughout the building and encode it utilizing an advanced code system. After the data is securely encrypted it can be sent out via the network to be monitored or recorded. Our video servers give the ability to choose video compression to maximize bandwidth efficiency. Also the addition of video servers to the analog systems gives enables such functions as: motion detection, pre/post alarm snapshots, DI/DO connection, and more. With our video servers, you can easily upgrade to an IP-based digital system from your existing analog system. While analog requires expensive coax cables to be installed before a camera can function, our video servers and wireless features allow for access through Ethernet cables or wireless hotspots giving you the flexibility to expand at a pace that fits your needs.
