To adapt to the various conditions and the constraints of exploitation, PixAlarm is available in a material range (servers) and software (virtual machines).
The fanless models allow the installation of PIXALARM on sites without severe environmental requirements. Operable from 0 to 55 °, these compact server (187x115x52 mm) can assure the treatment from 1 to 4 cameras, according to the chosen algorithms and the type of camera (thermal, visible).
Powered with 12 VDC, for a maximum consumption of 20W, these small systems allow for example to handle 4 thermal cameras with intrusion detection or another 2 cameras LAPI in parallel.
The fanless rugged models are made for sites with difficult environmental conditions (vibrations, -20/+ 75°C, etc.). Available in several dimensions and capable of dealing from 1 to 8 cameras, the hardened PIXALARM can settle down at the foot of your cameras or still in not warmed premises. All the models integrate dry contacts, and wide spread powered (9-48 VDC).
The rack range, in short frame 2U (48 cms depth), is intended to be integrated into your server room. Their processing capacity goes from 4 to 32 cameras, or more if needed. Specific options, such as the multi-algorithm per cameras, as well as the video storage in RAID are possible, besides all the usual functions of the range.
The virtual machine version complete the offer by allowing you to install the whole PIXALARM system on your own servers. The product is delivered in the form of virtual disk ready to be started by your hypersight (Xen, ProxMox, VMWare, VirtualBox). Once started and the licences installed, you will find all the power of PIXALARM, without differences of features compared to the hardware included-versions.
