Zenitel, a supplier of intelligent critical communication solutions, announces the launch of its TCIV+ (Turbine Compact Intercom Video) Station, which is said to provide users with a communication solution for any situation interand allows for seamless integration with other security systems.
Through a unique combination of HD voice and video and a new chipset for enhanced function, users can effectively mitigate security risks, the company says.
The 10W speaker, 10W class D amplifier, and digital MEMS microphones provide open, hands-free communication. It can also be used as a public address speaker. The station can adjust a voice that is too loud or too soft to an intelligible signal for the call recipient and the speaker volume automatically adjusts to an audible level to overcome ambient noise levels.
The new TCIV+ packs crystal-clear, HD voice and video technology within the same form factor as the Turbine Compact (TCIS, TCIV) range, according to the company. Installation, functionality, and capabilities remain the same as with other Turbine stations, making it easier to upgrade. The Field of View feature captures more of the area around the station, and a 30-per-second frame rate provides a natural look of any movement caught on the camera.
For performance, the 4x Cortex-A53 CPU cores and 512MB LPDDR4 RAM, and 1 Gb flash memory ensure that the TCIV+ series is quickly processing data. The enhanced efficiency in data processing provides the opportunity for integration into various security and business platforms.
Due to its solid aluminum, die-cast frame, the station is well protected from damage. The UV-resistant speaker design provides an open flow of audio, and is protected from tampering, with speaker-grill angles that prevent direct access to the speaker.
Additionally, the TCIV+ is cybersecure, meeting IT requirements for mission-critical systems and providing defense from cyber threats and attacks. Cyber defensibility is addressed using integrated IEEE 802.1X network access control.
“We certainly believe that audio, just like video, plays a key part in any security solution,” says Lars Paulsson, EVP for Safety and Security at Zenitel. “The need to interact and communicate with individuals moving in and out of spaces is vital, and at Zenitel we strive to keep people safe by enabling everyone to hear, be heard and be understood – every time and everywhere. With the development of the TCIV+, we combine IP video and IP audio and continue to drive the future of intelligent communication – powered and driven by Turbine technology.”
