Opticom Introduces Wireless Transmitters for Video Monitoring

Wireless Transmitters for Video Monitoring

Opticom Technologies has announced two 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.

While wireless is never our first choice in industrial video monitoring settings, there are some instances where a camera just can’t be hardwired into an ethernet connection, said Heidi Schmidt, global sales manager at Opticom, an associate member of the Southern Forest Products Association.

The wireless units can be used in a variety of ways, including 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, Schmidt said. This is something our customers have been asking for for a long time, and early users are happy with the new, upgraded solution.
