The SoftNVR-IA 32-channel IP surveillance software is designed for use with industrial applications. One of the key features of SoftNVR-IA is a built-in OPC server, which can communicate directly with industrial automation systems (SCADA, HMI, etc.). To enhance system intelligence, video recording and alarms can be triggered by events such as Digital Input and Video Loss that are supported by SoftNVR-IA, as well as events in automation systems. Most importantly, SoftNVR-IA gives industrial system integrators unlimited capability for integrating IP surveillance systems with automation systems.

OPC Communication

  • Can receive event tags sent from automation system to trigger video recording and other actions
  • Can send event tags to the automation system with system informaiton and the status of each channel

SoftNVR-IA eables OPC communication with SCADA/HMI systems

Live View

  • Supports 1, 4, 6, 9, 10, 13, 16, 25, 32 live display
  • Supports MJPEG, MPEG4, and H.264 video streams (only supports VPort models)
  • Supports up to 32 channels in the camera list
  • Easy-to-use with drag and drop video display selection
  • Can provide snapshot images in JPEG format
  • Supports image tuning, including brightness, saturation, contrast, and hue
  • Supports 2-way audio for voice communication between field sites and the control center
  • Supports dual monitor and full screen display
  • Supports display screen rotation
  • Supports the PTZ control panel defi ned in VPort products
  • Supports i-frame (key frame) decode only, which lowers displayed frame rate immediately to save system resources for other higher priority tasks

Video Record

  • Video recording can be triggered manually or by event
  • Video files are in AVI format, and can be played back on all popular media players (requires SoftNVR-IA codec)
