The Crestron Accessory You Need: Enhance Your School or Business’ Video Streaming System with a Network Video Streamer

The Crestron Accessory You Need: Enhance Your School or Business’ Video Streaming System with a Network Video Streamer

If your home or business is connected with Crestron®, the CEN-NVS200 is be the perfect accessory for your video system, as it provides a powerful solution for delivering video over Ethernet from a camera or another analog video source. Audio is also supported to enable monitoring of an audio signal interleaved with the video signal. Supporting multiple streams with different formats and quality settings, the CEN-NVS200 is ideal for streaming video and audio simultaneously to a variety of Crestron touchscreens, computers, and mobile devices.

This video streamer has many key benefits, including:

Multi-Platform Combability

The CEN-NVS200 works with most Crestron touchscreens, allowing for monitoring of a door entry camera, nursery camera, or any other composite video source from remote locations throughout the home or workplace. You can also use it to add live video monitoring as part of an XPanel control solution running on a computer, or to any iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ device running the Crestron App.

High-Quality Streaming

Video streaming capabilities include high-performance H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG compression formats, affording compatibility with Crestron devices and software as well as any popular Web browser. A versatile range of settings allows for optimizing each individual stream for its intended application and the capabilities of the network. Video compression settings include frame rate, resolution, and image quality, plus adjustable brightness, contrast, saturation, and sharpness. The CEN-NVS200 supports very high-quality video streaming up to 30 fps @ 720×480 (NTSC) or 25 fps @ 720×576 (PAL) resolutions.

Audio Monitoring

The CEN-NVS200 enables monitoring of live audio along with the video signal by connecting an external microphone or line-level source.

Security Features

Intelligent security features include motion and tamper detection, text overlay, and privacy masking. Up to three motion detection windows can be defined to sense movement in specific areas of the video image. The tamper detection function can detect if the camera has been disabled or disconnected, or if someone has blocked, repositioned, defocused, or spray painted the camera lens. Additionally, an external sensor can be connected to the CEN-NVS200 via its digital input port. Automated control signal scan be triggered in response to any motion, tamper, or external sensor event, enabling logging and notification over the network via Crestron touchscreens, mobile devices, and third-party applications.

Text overlay capability enables clear identification of the camera image, supporting the display of custom captions, time stamp, and frame rate. Privacy masking allows up to 5 areas of the camera image to be obscured.

Live Recording

Built-in recording lets you capture live video, audio, and snapshots right on board, eliminating the need for external recording devices and minimizing network bandwidth consumption. Recording can be started manually via a Web browser. Recording can also be started automatically in response to motion detection or some other trigger. The MP4 video and JPEG or BMP image files can be saved over the network to a computer or server, or locally to an onboard memory card. Local storage affords maximum reliability, allowing recording to continue even if network communications are interrupted.

PTZ Camera Control

AnRS-485 control port is included on the CEN-NVS200, providing for remote control of a pan/tilt/zoom camera.
