ACTi and ZyXEL Announce Alliance Partnership for IP Surveillance System

Taipei, Taiwan and Hsinchu, Taiwan, February 22, 2010 – ACTi Corporation, a leading provider of unified solution for IP surveillance, and ZyXEL Communications, the leading broadband access solutions provider, today announced that ZyXEL PoE Switches and ACTi IP surveillance equipments have been jointly tested to deliver a comprehensive IP surveillance.

The ZyXEL PoE switches allow power to be supplied over CAT5 Ethernet cables, and thus eliminate the need for costly electrical wirings. PoE enabled IP surveillance infrastructure is both cost efficient and easy to maintain for system administrators.

Video quality from ACTi IP network Cameras far surpasses traditional Analog cameras, allowing for crystal clear megapixel resolution images. Advanced H.264 / MPEG4 compression codecs save network bandwidth and make recording digitized.

ACTi NVR video management software lets user access recordings remotely and allows for far more intelligent operations than available from traditional Analog-based system. Motion Detection and event recordings highlights relevant time segments and makes retrieving and exporting evidence a snap. Intelligent video analytics help identify important scenes and license plate information.

The combined offerings provide users with a surveillance solution that is convenient, robust, and ready-to-deploy. Rugged PoE network backbones from ZyXEL ensure consistent data delivery while high quality video management from ACTi cameras and software secure proper identification. This seamless alliance provides installers with an iron-clad end-to-end integrated solution.

"It's an important beginning for ACTi to integrate ZyXEL's broadband access devices," said Juber Chu, President of ACTi Corporation. "As an alliance partner, we believe that we can provide a full range of solutions with high stability to system integrators."
