Honeywell Introduces Enhanced BusView Video Software

Honeywell has introduced BusView Player Version 1.2, which features a self-contained video clip archiving system that allows users to quickly find, print, distribute and archive video and audio files for future use. The new version of BusView helps keep video clips secure by avoiding common media players, such as MPEG or .AVI.

The enhanced BusView includes features designed to help users work more efficiently: an online help function; a reorganized, easier-to-use main screen; increased ease in camera replacement; extensive, four-camera viewing options; and new image quality and frame rates. The improved image quality setting supports longer recording times and maximizes hard drive storage.

BusView also includes advanced searching capabilities that allow users to quickly locate a specific instance of video footage by narrowing search parameters. New search parameters include time frame, triggers, cameras, record rules and vehicle speed.

"Honeywell received many requests for a method of distributing saved video clips that didn't require a special software installation. We updated BusView to meet this need," said Brian Curliss, product manager for Honeywell Video Systems. "We work closely with our customers to understand their technology challenges and will continue to improve our products to meet their needs."

BusView V1.2 is completely compatible with previous versions of the system and easily integrates with Honeywell's Digital Chaperone(r) DDR, an all-digital video and data recorder system designed specifically for transportation systems. The system supports Microsoft Windows(r) 2000, XP Professional and XP Home Edition.
