Video security appliances
Johnson Controls has added two new appliances to its video security products portfolio: Tyco Analytics Appliance and Tyco Transcoder. When added to existing IP recorders, the hardware offloads video processing from network video recorders, increasing system capabilities without overhauling the infrastructure. The Tyco Transcoder increases transcoding by 14 channels to meet live streaming requirements with constrained network bandwidths while maintaining a small form factor. The Tyco Analytics Appliance adds up to 16 useable analytic channels beyond what is available on the network video recorder, reducing NVR CPU usage and resulting in increased performance. The added resource features an analytics overlay, live people counter, and analytics dashboard for streamlined viewing. The Analytics Appliance can be configured with four channels devoted to license plate recognition, or up to 16 channels of video intelligence rules such as crowd formation, object detection, perimeter protection, queue length and more.
