Avoid ‘rip & replace’ of non-NDAA compliant cameras with new compact Vemotion Video Firewall
Vemotion Interactive, the leading UK manufacturer of low-latency, high-performance, plug & play live video streaming solutions for systems integrators and OEM solutions providers, has launched Vemotion Video Firewall.
Answering requests from operators of non-NDAA compliant IP surveillance cameras, the Vemotion Video Firewall device has been specifically designed to help surveillance system operators avoid having to ‘rip and replace’ their investments in device/network equipment purchased, and particularly when involving nearly new equipment.
Providing a practical solution for high-security surveillance applications, such as Local Authorities, Police and CNI with non-NDAA compliant IP surveillance cameras, the compact Vemotion video leak blocker provides a highly effective secure streaming solution for those who may have concerns about their IP camera video data being surreptitiously ‘leaked’ to non-authorised servers.
Measuring just 63.5 x 63.5 x 24.5mm, the new Vemotion Video Firewall provides a simple, low-cost method of securing camera video from being leaked, negating the need for surveillance camera operators to replace non-NDAA compliant cameras in their existing or newly specified camera systems.
Ideal for a wide range of overt and covert rapid deployment, mobile, temporary or fixed camera situational awareness applications, the diminutive Vemotion Video Firewall video leak blocker is designed to be easily fitted in any small space next to a camera.
How it works
The Vemotion Video Firewall connects to the camera and allows the VMS to connect to the cameras through the firewall. When using the Vemotion Video Firewall, the video leak blocker sets up a physically isolated network, separating the camera from the original network, meaning the camera cannot access outside networks, adding security and control to the video and any other data.
Vemotion Video Firewall allows the VMS to still operate pan, tilt, zoom functions and control the camera (via ONVIF), but technically, the VMS is communicating to the firewall, which in turn, is communicating to the camera – creating robust network security.
“With tight budgets and, increasingly, sustainability, understandably system operators are reluctant to write-off their existing camera investments,” explains Steve Haworth, CEO at Vemotion. “Some non-NDAA compliant camera systems may only be at the beginning of their life cycle, so operators simply don’t have the budget to pay for another installation so soon after the initial installation.
“For installers and end-users, the new Vemotion Video Blocker can economically secure and extend the life of any existing surveillance installation. Fitting a low-cost Vemotion Video Firewall next to each non-NDAA compliant camera is a far more viable solution versus the budget-busting alternative of having to buy a whole new video transmission solution.”
