Smart, integrated audio solutions that are easy to use
The possibilities for IP audio are huge and NW Security Group has been working closely with customers to lead the way with integrating this technology into their existing systems. Using the open platform approach supported by industry-innovators Axis and Milestone, we’re using our in-depth knowledge of this technology ecosystem to create bespoke audio solutions, backed up by our unparalleled level of ongoing support.
There are typically three common applications for IP audio:
- Security – audio integrated with a video surveillance system
- Public address – making announcements to an entire site or selected “zones”
- Background music – centralised music management with a variety of streaming sources
IP audio is incredibly versatile. All the applications noted above would be possible when the audio system is integrated with your IP-based CCTV system and there are speakers in the desired locations; network speakers are available for indoor and outdoor use. The huge advantage of using IP-based security systems is that if you’re already using network video, then the infrastructure for audio is already in place.
If you have an existing analogue audio system, we can still integrate this legacy system into your network, bridging between the old and new technology. This means you benefit from the best of both worlds and can make the transition from analogue to smart digital audio very cost-effectively in phases.
