Already a robust performer in the most challenging environments, Darim Vision’s PVE400 Portable Video Encoder/Streamer adds black-box-type archiving to its wireless/IP transmission of video, audio, and GPS tracking capabilities. The newest generation PVE combines simultaneous WiFi streaming and local recording to a flash card, instead of making them either-or choices.
Real-time broadcasting for “point-of-view” situational awareness can be critical in many environments, from surveillance to inspection under extreme conditions. However, networks cannot be relied upon to be 100-percent failsafe. Combining local recording with simultaneous wireless transmission delivers a layer of redundancy, with the assurance that the entire event can be documented.
“Local recording capability provides that important second opportunity to view the action,” notes Aaron Taylor, Sales & Marketing Manager of Darim. “Like a black box, this capability provides a permanent archive of what happened. Power can go down, networks can fail, but local recording will continue.”
That kind of redundancy makes the PVE400 a “must-have” tool for real-time monitoring and other situations where archiving is mandatory. The device, ruggedized to withstand harsh conditions, is currently being used worldwide by the military, SWAT teams, and special-event security. It is often deployed in remote surveillance applications such as airport, oil rig, and mining inspection operations.
“The PVE400 has already enabled its operators to save a tremendous amount of time and money—as well as human lives,” Taylor points out.
The compact MPEG-4 IP camera is a “wearable” unit supporting field-operational features such as auto-locking/quick-release interfaces, aluminum rugged encasement, waterproof bullet-head camera, and replaceable lithium-ion battery, specifically designed to meet the needs of harsh environments or critical/emergency response teams.
The PVE400 can be managed and monitored from either an Incident Response Command Post or from a Central Operations Control Center, delivering real-time video, audio, and GPS information from outdoor environments. It can also be utilized as a mobile camera mounted on an automobile, bicycle, dog, or robot for rescue operations, or rapidly deployed as a permanent or temporary wireless video surveillance platform, at sporting events, concerts, fires, or road accidents.
