BATTLE CREEK, MICH — Opticom Technologies, a leader in industrial video monitoring solutions, announced today new IP wireless video monitoring capabilities with the AR-5803-900 and AR-5808-900 wireless transmitters.
The new wireless transmitters can be paired with any IP networking camera to transmit video feeds wirelessly to networked monitoring and storage devices. Opticom offers 1-mile and 4-mile units, both of which can be used as transmitter or receiver. One transmitter or receiver can be used for multiple cameras.
“Wireless is never our first choice in industrial video monitoring settings,” said Heidi Schmidt, Global Sales Manager at Opticom. “But there are some instances where a camera just can’t be hardwired into an ethernet connection and it’s important to have a wireless option.”
Examples of where Opticom customers plan to use these wireless units include temporary troubleshooting scenarios; video monitoring outdoor areas of a facility and parking lots; on cranes and other moving equipment; and other situations where a hardwire connection isn’t available or cost-effective.
“We’re proud to be able to offer a cost-effective, innovative solution for wireless video feed transmission,” said Schmidt. “This is something our customers have been asking for for a long time, and early users are happy with our new, upgraded solution.
The wireless units are built to meet Opticom’s promise of rugged durability in the harshest industrial environments like sawmills, food processing facilities, mines, demolition sites, and more. They are open platform, so they can be paired with Opticom cameras or any camera with IP networking capabilities.
