Eyewatch, a company belonging to the Deister Electronic Group, had a truly good idea for a new product and, with it, blurred the distinction between previously separate technologies.

If this could be pre-sorted, ignoring all the uninteresting stuff, there would be great savings in storage capacity and therefore also investment.

Finding the right security camera for every application is a challenge for system integrators, installers, end users, and even manufacturers.
The Challenge for System Integrators:
Integrators have to be experts on hundreds of different kinds of cameras by dozens (or more!) of manufacturers. To make things more complicated, integrators may not, because of purchase requirements, even have access to the best cameras for a particular job.
Operating on the Geutebruck stand at Intersec in Dubai is the new multi-standard software.

It also supports Onvif-compliant IP cameras and 16/9 HD-format cameras as well as analogue, digital and megapixel ones.
