IndigoVision has launched its "Surveillance Keyboard", designed to allow simple operation of IP surveillance cameras and fast switching between live video and recorded footage. The company says the specialized keyboard provides operators with an intuitive interface and playback capabilities that allows fast response to incidents.
The keyboard has been designed to work seamlessly with IndigoVision’s complete IP video security platform. It allows the user to quickly play back an incident then return to live video, removing the need to switch to PC-based controls to review footage. Offering full command and control functionality in a robust design, the keyboard's simple layout and interactive LCD display make it easy to select cameras, with immediate feedback on camera and viewing pane selection, while an integrated joystick allows accurate control of PTZ cameras.

The company says the unit's simple and familiar interface allows an easy upgrade from analog to IP-based monitoring for operators.
