IP Camera Tuning Kit Released

By: John Honovich, Published on Sep 10, 2009

VNS has released an IP Camera Field Kit that helps in tuning/focusing IP cameras (see data sheet for technical details). It's goal is to do for IP cameras what ToteVision field monitors [link no longer available] were to analog cameras.

The Kit itself is a 5.7" Touch Screen monitor that comes pre-loaded with a discovery tool to detect 3rd party IP cameras. The monitor can be used with Veracity's Pinpoint to connect to the camera (Pinpoint is like an IP splitter allowing a PC near the IP camera to connect to the network).

The kit is an alternative to using a laptop for tuning. Compared to a laptop, the smaller form factor and reduced weight (the kit is only 2.76 pounds with the battery) should be easier to use. I do not know how easy it is told as I have not physically seen one (Note:The kit's dimensions are (HxWxD) 5.3 x 7.1 x 2.2in. (135 x 180 x 55 mm).

Finally, pricing is still being finalized. Until that is released, it's hard to determine the relative value of buying these units rather than using a laptop. However, many security techs still do not own their own laptops so it could be useful in such a scenario.
