IPVideo Corporation has introduced AVfusion, a turnkey audio/video recording, editing and streaming system that uses select Panasonic and Axis IP security cameras. The company said, “AVfusion is ideal for capturing lectures, training sessions, student presentations, interviews and interrogations, clinical studies, custodial visitations and any other situation that requires affordable, high-quality audio/video recording that doesn’t need to meet the full standards of professional broadcasting.” It added that cameras used for recording to AVfusion may also be used as part of a video management system (VMS), providing value to end-users’ investment in cameras, as well as additional revenue opportunities for system integrators who support both security and AV technologies.

IPVideo’s president David Antar commented, “We are living in an era of IP technology convergence, and AVfusion taps into the power of this trend, providing added functionality for IP cameras that, in many cases, may already be in place. An increasing number of companies and organizations are struggling with how to create affordable audio/video content for a wide range of purposes; AVfusion may be their answer.”

AVfusion software resides on a powerful master server, IPVideo explained, that supports the streaming, recording and storage of up to eight concurrent, synchronized AV streams, each at 30 frames per second. “The solution is scalable,” the company continued. “Adding more servers allow for a higher number of concurrent recordings. Each recording may comprise a single audio stream and multiple camera views, which are seamlessly edited on-the-fly using a simple console interface. Notes may be added to the video file, corresponding to designated locations within the recording, making it easy to search for specific content. Recordings may be made at standard or HD resolution. They are recorded as MP4 files that can be easily uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, or other streaming services and viewed using any of today’s common media viewing software.”
