Watchstander Provides Simple Jog Wheel Control of SentryVMS

IPVideo Corporation developed Watchstander™, a custom interface and hardware accessory for SentryVMS, specifically for the U.S. Navy. Watchstander™ provides a rugged, stable and easy-to-use interface for video surveillance within the ship's live ordinance areas.

Due to turbulent conditions at sea, the US Navy required an interface that solely relies on a jog-wheel device, allowing operators to review live and archived video footage of multiple security cameras.

Key Features:

  • Jog-wheel and pre-programmed button interface
  • Toggle between individual cameras and camera layouts
  • Simple client option that can run parallel to standard VMS client
  • Durable and stable software interface
