Video security

The Longwatch Video System Version 5.1 is available in three distinct platforms that eliminate the custom programming needed with traditional video systems and create a "fast track" for integration with a process control, HMI/SCADA or automation control systems. The platforms include a Console Recorder Platform that monitors what operators are watching on HMI displays and records their keystroke actions, so that playback reveals what operators saw on the screen during an "event" and what they did about it. The Video Historian Platform automatically links and synchronizes historical trend information and stored video from multiple cameras in the field or process.
