Peer-to-peer video intercoms
By SP&T Staff
The new Aiphone IX Series 2 Peer-to-Peer Video Intercoms offer Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) compatibility, enhanced CCTV control, line supervision, backwards compatibility with the original IX Series and many more features. End users can create more efficient security operation centres (SOCs) using the IX Series 2 system as a single command point to control a variety of security layers. The IX Series 2 can page across multiple stations with general or emergency announcements and scan through video intercoms and CCTV cameras to monitor locations. New door, master and emergency stations can tie-in to a SIP IP PBX server to forward calls to an external phone number, such as an off-site call center. SIP compatibility allows the IX Series 2 master station to be used as a telephone, replacing VoIP phones. Master stations can view images from an associated ONVIF Profile S CCTV camera and close-up images from the 1.2-megapixel IX Series 2 camera. With the optional CCTV camera arm on Aiphone emergency towers, users can quickly toggle between the CCTV camera image and the intercom’s eye-level video feed to better assess emergency situations.
