360 Vision Technology’s cameras offer proven integration with Vivotek’s VAST 2 VMS

A long-term technical partner of specialist CCTV manufacturer 360 Vision Technology, Envisage Technology Limited has earned itself a distinguished reputation as an expert in high-end projects with a portfolio of unique products. Across the years, the company has overseen the installation of many 360 Vision Technology camera products for a variety of different applications.

“Exploring beyond conventional CCTV and embracing the latest technologies allows us to remain at the very cutting-edge of system solutions,” explained Kevin Brown, managing director at Envisage Technology Limited. “We employ a dedicated team of highly-trained technical staff to support our customers across all areas including hardware, software, networking, system integration, surveillance cameras and telemetry. This means that we’re able to provide a complete solution for any application. Our close technical relationship with the sales and product development teams at 360 Vision Technology has been a key enabling factor.”

Illustrating the partnership between the two companies, Envisage Technology recently evaluated the latest 360 Vision Technology camera products with another of its partners’ product offerings, namely the Vivotek VAST 2 video management software (VMS) platform.

“As a value-added reseller, we pride ourselves on the technical expertise and knowledge that we’re able to offer our security systems and networking installation customers across EMEA,” added Brown. “To further develop the compatibility and integration of the products we supply, we recently tested the 360 Vision Technology camera range with Vivotek’s VAST 2 VMS platform to prove the viability of a total solution option that’s perfect for a wide variety of installation applications.”

Vivotek’s VAST 2 VMS features simple operation on single or multiple monitors, custom layout to fit corridor and panorama formats, rapid export of multi-channel video and the ability to acquire video content analytics with integrated cameras. “VAST 2 provides an easy and intuitive user interface with rich functionality to meet the needs of any of our customers,” observed Brown. “Thanks to 360 Vision Technology’s ONVIF 2.4 Profile S compatibility, we were able to integrate its Predator and Invictus cameras into the VAST 2 VMS quickly and simply during our on-site integration evaluation.”

Bridging the divide between analogue and IP systems, 360 Vision Technology’s Invictus and Predator cameras are equipped with Hybrid functionality, enabling installation in existing analogue systems and Full 1080p HD IP video streaming networks. Economical and simple to install, Predator and Invictus cameras are available with IR and white-light high intensity illumination, providing a ruggedised PTZ solution with up to 200 metres of illumination.

“We’re proud to support the integration of our camera range into an industry leading VMS such as Vivotek’s VAST 2,” enthused Mark Rees, managing director at 360 Vision Technology. “Not only does this ensure the reduced installation time of 360 Vision Technology cameras into a VAST 2 system, but also instant and full access to high-performance camera functionality.”
