Exacq’s IP Video Surveillance Systems Link to Talk-A-Phone's Emergency Phones

Talk-A-Phone announces integration of the VOIP-500 Series emergency phone with the exacqVision VMS (Video Management System) manufactured by Exacq Technologies. In the event of a distress call, the Talk A Phone VOIP-500 Series emergency phone sends an event via standard ASCII output over the network to the exacqVision system.

Based on the event, the exacqVision VMS can link to a nearby camera or lock a pan-tilt-zoom camera to a preset in order to view real-time video of the event. An event list also logs the event and allows it to be viewed later, including related archived video.

“The integration between Talk-A-Phone and Exacq is proof that a truly open platform video management system allows for the creation of real, best-of-breed solutions,” notes Dave Underwood, president, Exacq Technologies.

“Converging video surveillance and emergency communication solutions brings tremendous benefits to our shared client base”, said Samuel Shanes, chairman and CEO for Talk-A-Phone. “We are very pleased that Exacq Technologies has jointed our growing list of technology partners.”
