Innovative Integration for Increased Situational Awareness and Business Intelligence

The new HE-1101 IDIS HDMI/VGA Video Encoder from IDIS creates an immediate integration of surveillance capability and key information sources, enhancing situational awareness and business intelligence for end-users. The encoder, which works regardless of the source of the complimentary video information, makes for an ideal technology for integrated building monitoring, retail environments, shopping malls, hotels, high-resolution monitoring centers, schools, corporate training environments, and more. Affordably priced and easily installed, the feature-rich encoder is well suited for security environments of any size or complexity.

Enhanced Situational Awareness

The innovative IDIS® HDMI/VGA Video Encoder (HE-1101) allows operators to view and control multiple applications all from a single monitor, keyboard, and mouse by simply connecting hardware and systems that have a VGA or HDMI output (USB input required for keyboard/mouse control). The output of an integrated application is displayed and recorded as if it were just a camera in the surveillance system, while the application is managed via the operator’s keyboard and mouse, increasing situational awareness and providing greater control within a familiar environment. Incredibly cost-effective and versatile, the IDIS HE-1101 allows operators to monitor and manage almost any application or device, from IDIS and third-party cameras and network video recorders (NVRs) to access control, building management, intruder, fire, and point of sale (PoS) systems, all from a single common user interface—the license-free video management software (VMS), IDIS Center, or the advanced and modular enterprise-level IDIS Solution Suite.

Cost-effective Integration

The encoder eliminates the need for complex and expensive integration software and hardware platforms, which benefits installers through quick, simple installation and setup with minimal ongoing maintenance, while ensuring IDIS’s signature low total cost of ownership for end users.

Reduced Risk

When a security situation or threat occurs, the increased situational awareness provided by the IDIS HE-1101 can help operators best use limited resources to validate alarms and identify the threat. The HE-1101 also closes security gaps and eliminates mistakes caused by the need to switch between disparate applications and multiple monitors.

A Complete Audit Trail

Every action taken by operators across all integrated systems is recorded directly to IDIS NVRs or VMS servers forming a complete audit trail of events. The audit trail can be used to confirm that standard operating procedures are being followed, helping organizations validate compliance and reduce overall risk.

Suitable for a Range of Applications

The HE-1101 is well suited for small and mid-sized retail organizations, providing them with a powerful investigative and auditing tool to reduce shrinkage, fraudulent transactions, and compliance violations. The IDIS HDMI/VGA Video Encoder delivers cost-effective and efficient centralized security control and monitoring, reducing the burden of implementation, training, and maintenance, once again delivering on IDIS’s promise of low total cost of ownership.
