ACTi and ZyXEL Announce Alliance Partnership for IP Surveillance System

March 10, 2010
ACTi Corporation, a leading provider of unified solutions for IP surveillance, and ZyXEL Communications, a leading broadband access solutions provider, today announced that ZyXEL PoE Switches and ACTi IP surveillance equipment has been jointly tested to deliver a comprehensive IP surveillance solution.
The ZyXEL PoE switches allow power to be supplied over CAT5 Ethernet cables, and thus eliminate the need for costly electrical wiring. PoE enabled IP surveillance infrastructure is both cost efficient and easy to maintain for system administrators.

The video quality from ACTi IP network cameras far surpasses traditional analog cameras, allowing for crystal clear megapixel resolution images. Advanced H.264 / MPEG4 compression codecs save network bandwidth and make recording digitized.
ACTi NVR video management software lets users access recordings remotely and allows for far more intelligent operations than available from traditional Analog-based systems. Motion detection and event recordings highlight relevant time segments and makes retrieving and exporting evidence very easy. Intelligent video analytics help identify important scenes including license plate information.
The combined offerings provide users with a surveillance solution that is convenient, robust, and ready-to-deploy. Rugged PoE network backbones from ZyXEL ensure consistent data delivery while high quality video management from ACTi cameras and software secure accurate identification. This seamless alliance provides installers with an iron-clad end-to-end integrated solution.
“It’s an important beginning for ACTi to integrate ZyXEL’s broadband access devices,” said Juber Chu, President of ACTi Corporation. “As an alliance partner, we believe that we can provide a full range of solutions with high stability to system integrators.”
”ZyXEL understands the need of constantly providing comprehensive and best-of-breed solutions to meet customer requirements,” said Alpha Chen, VP of ZyXEL’s Enterprise Solution Business Unit. “Through the collaboration, our customers will benefit from the robustness and performance that is delivered by the integrated solutions.”
ZyXEL’s complete product portfolio enables IP Surveillance solutions to deliver the best quality and performance: the L3 Core Switch resides at the heart of the CCTV network to control and handle CCTV camera streams, the Power over Ethernet (PoE) Switch connects to the camera and the wireless LAN for smaller deployments. ZyXEL solutions also enable security for campus connectivity and secure remote monitoring.
ACTi’s full range of video surveillance equipment provides high quality video and intuitive operation. The superior Day / Night design ensures quality images at all times. The wide variety of camera selections satisfies all kinds of demands. From 2-inch IP-66 Vandal proof minidome to the worldwide first CCD Megapixel box cameras, from video servers to convert Analog systems to IP network to IR LED bullet cameras that can capture images even on the darkest nights, there’s a solution for every need.
