Kalatel, an Interlogix company, announces that it has expanded its CCTV product line by adding the award-winning, remote video monitoring products developed by 8x8 Inc. Interlogix Inc. acquired the line of security products from 8x8, which includes the RSM line of products that compress and transmit security video images and audio over standard phone lines, or high-speed ISDN lines. These products will be marketed under the Kalatel brand name. “Kalatel wanted to offer high quality, cost-effective phone-line video transmission as part of its wide range of security products,” says Darren Nicholson, national marketing manager for Kalatel. “Adding these products to our line is part of Kalatel’s strategic plan to lead the market in digital video CCTV products.”
Kalatel’s CCTV systems are designed for easy integration with other manufacturers’ equipment and are highly modular, embodying the company’s “born to build” philosophy by enabling rapid and cost-effective expansion or modification of existing systems. 8x8 is a developer of videoconferencing and digital communications technology, including IP gateways, software and semiconductors.
