Video Networks

The unique 'Viewpoint VBX' system from Viewcast Corporation enables the creation of an enterprise-wide network for video and audio communication. The VBX can take in multiple video sources from VCR's, DVD's, satellite receivers, broadcast TV, cameras, surveillance cameras, etc. and route them, on demand, to PC's on a local network over unused wires in a standard Category-5 UTP cable. It does this in much the same way that a telephone PBX switches and distributes voice communications. Multiple VBX's can be linked together to tie multiple buildings on a single site, or at locations all over the world, into the system.

Each VBX can support hundreds of users and allows point-to-point, multipoint and broadcast modes of operation. A typical VBX system includes a video switch, a shared Codec server, WAN interfaces and desktop components. Video and audio signals are distributed with TV quality over existing UTP wiring at distances of up to one kilometre. An existing LAN or telephone system is used only for non-video communication between the VBX and each user, requiring minimal use of the computer network.
A conference card set optionally provides the capability of videoconferences linking up to seven sites within the network and externally. Multiple VBX's in different buildings or locations can be linked in a variety of ways.
