Video monitoring software on industrial cameras

Longwatch, a division of Industrial Video and Control (IVC),  has announced that Longwatch video monitoring software products have been integrated with IVC’s latest industrial cameras.  IVC is a leading supplier of cameras and video systems for industrial, military, and commercial applications.  IVC acquired Longwatch in February 2011, and the two companies have worked since then to create video solutions using Longwatch software and IVC’s cameras.

Longwatch video surveillance software runs on a standalone PC or can be integrated with almost all popular HMI/SCADA platforms used in automation and process control, including General Electric iFix, Wonderware InTouch, InduSoft WebStudio, and Control Microsystems ClearSCADA. The software allows automation and process control operators and engineers to view live camera data on their HMI screens, pan and zoom cameras from the HMI, “rewind” archived video data to review historical events, link archived video with historian data, and record what operators saw and did during an “event” at their HMI screens.

Longwatch software—including the Console Recorder, Video Management System, Longwatch Viewer, Video Window and the Video Historian—now provides seamless, integrated support of IVC’s latest, state-of-the-art industrial cameras including:
• MZ-3630-04 - Outdoor manual zoom day/night switching color fixed megapixel IP camera
• PTZ-3330-11 – Outdoor 26x day/night switching color PTZ IP camera
• AMZ-3641-02 – Class I Division 1 3 megapixel color fixed IP camera
• APTZ-3141-xx – Class I Division 1 day/night switching color PTZ IP camera (all versions)
• APTZ-3142-xx – Class I Division 2 day/night switching color PTZ IP camera (all versions)

The combination of Longwatch video monitoring software with IVC’s industrial cameras allows IVC to meet the needs of industrial plants for security surveillance, process monitoring, pipeline and well-site monitoring, and video monitoring of remote sites, such as pumping stations, power transmission lines, offshore platforms, water and wastewater facilities, mines, and similar applications.
