October 10, 2007 -- Berk-Tek and Ortronics/Legrand announced that Network Video Technologies Inc. (NVT) has been added as an approved affiliate vendor for the NetClear ESS [Electronic Safety and Security] program.

Through the program, Berk-Tek and Ortronics have expanded the NetClear copper and fiber-optic structured cabling platform for enterprise networks to include security and surveillance applications, along with data, video and power.

"As part of NetClear ESS, Berk-Tek and Ortronics are teaming up with associated vendors in the CCTV realm, such as camera manufacturers and active component manufacturers to offer proven integrated solution sets for both IT managers and security integrators," notes Chris Adams, marketing manager for Ortronics/Legrand. "Our goal is to offer our customers a group of like-minded technology affiliates that can bring solution sets and system experience to those ready to embrace IP technology for security applications."

NVT is in the business of transmitting CCTV video and supplying camera power over unshielded twisted pair wire via structured cabling networks.

"As an affiliate vendor, NVT provides products, solutions and support to Berk-Tek and Ortronics/Legrand to educate the market on the transition as analog CCTV moves from a coax-based infrastructure to UTP-based," comments George Wojtan, datacom market manager at NVT. "Together our products will allow installers and end-users to benefit from the performance, cost savings, simplicity, and future proofing of structured cabling."

"NetClear ESS solutions demonstrate a progressive path to security over IP, from analog to hybrid to total IP, including running data, video and power (PoE) over the same UTP cable," concludes Carol Everett Oliver, RCDD, marketing analyst for Berk-Tek. "Companies like NVT are instrumental in providing that bridge for CCTV and as convergence encompasses future building automation functions."
