AMG Systems – the British manufacturer of CCTV transmission solutions and “sophisticated” 5 Megapixel cameras – will showcase its rapidly expanding range of Industrial Ethernet Switches and Media Converters at the British Exhibition of Security Technology (BEST). The event takes place at the Royal Air Force Museum in Hendon on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 October.

Products on show will include the new MSES2 range of Industrial Ethernet Switches, an expansion on the original and successful MSES product line. Also on display will be AMG’s new range of multi-port, semi-managed Media Converters/Switches which allow IP video to be transmitted over 120 km.

Andrew Pigram, sales and marketing director at the AMG Group, told Risk UK: “Our new MSES2 range of Industrial Ethernet Switches represents a significant expansion of the current range, including 10, 20 and 30-port models, faster processing, POE+ and Gigabit across all Ethernet ports as well as lower power consumption and wider temperature range support.”

Pigram added: “All of AMG’s MSES switches provide a simple hybrid upgrade solution to full VMS platforms over an IP network infrastructure and are available with RS232, RS485, closed contact alarms and integrated analogue video encoders specifically designed for new IP video systems.”

He continued: “We’re also showcasing our new Media Converters and multi-port, semi-managed Media Converter Switches which can be used to extend IP networks beyond the standard 90 metres and also to connect multiple cameras directly without the need for expensive managed Ethernet switches. AMG’s low-cost, ruggedised, semi-managed switches deliver many of the benefits of bandwidth management associated with a more expensive layer 2 switch but without the need for laptops, networking or programming experience.”

In conclusion, Pigram explained: “The ultra-compact design and wide temperature range is specifically designed for CCTV applications where installation space is often confined, such as camera tower bases and cabinets, but where high bandwidth and good management is essential when it comes to VMS and network performance.”
