FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) – GOST® (Global Ocean Security Technologies) leading supplier of marine security, monitoring and tracking systems, will feature its GOST Watch HD systems integrated with products from industry partners KVH® Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: KVHI) and FLIR® Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: FLIR) at the 2014 Miami International Boat Show (Electronics Room booth 1683, Miami Beach Convention Center, February 13-17
The partnership between these three industry leaders has been well-received by customers and marine electronic dealers alike, who appreciate the convenience of working with quality products and services that integrate easily for smooth installation and operation. “Isn’t it great to see three separate companies state in print that their electronics will work together to accomplish a complex task?” writer Ben Ellison asked recently in his Panbo marine electronics blog.
GOST Watch HD VIP Series packages provide high definition surveillance using a high speed internet connection through the KVH line of mini-VSAT Broadband? systems, along with a penta-band GSM/CDMA cellular data communicator for use when in cellular coverage areas. The KVH mini-VSAT ICM can be configured with an intelligent “best use” network management switch that will automatically prioritize cellular data via the GOST G3G-GSM/CDMA communicator when inside cellular range and will automatically switch the data feed to the KVH mini-VSAT pipe when the boat is outside of cellular coverage.
The GOST Watch HD VIP Series Packages include everything needed to remotely monitor all activities on board the vessel from anywhere in the world via computer or smart phone over the internet. There are several different packages available to meet the needs of yacht owners and crews. Watch live video of a yacht as it leaves the harbor or view activities in the salon, staterooms or engine room via the GOST Watch HD website or iPhone and Android apps. Cameras can be set to record clips to the website, based on motion detection and sent via email to the designated recipients. Camera motion detection can be armed and disarmed by using the included push button. The system can accommodate up to 6 cameras per login. GOST Watch HD TracPhone VIP Packages combine the KVH and cellular data modules with the assorted line of GOST cameras and internet video recorders (IVRs) accessible over the internet.
GOST Watch HD Integration with FLIR M-Series Premium Thermal Night Vision System Offers Remote Access
Vessels equipped with the GOST Watch HD video surveillance system and FLIR M-Series thermal night vision cameras can have access to website based remote pan-tilt-zoom control of FLIR cameras on board and can view live streaming video of onboard cameras from anywhere in the world over the internet. The easy-to-use, web-based pan, tilt, zoom and mode control interface on the GOST Watch HD website works like the control puck on board, with a few modifications that enhance the capabilities for remote surveillance. The most noteworthy of these modifications is a one touch “Surveillance Scan” button that instantly performs a peripheral sweep of the area immediately surrounding the vessel.
GOST Watch HD allows users to remotely monitor up to six analog cameras per login at one time to capture activity onboard and around a vessel from anywhere in the world over the internet using any computer or smartphone. GOST Watch HD apps allow customers to access and view their cameras with the touch of a button from their iPhone or Android devices.
The award-winning M-Series is FLIR’s premier line of maritime thermal night vision systems. Single-payload (thermal only) and dual-payload (thermal and lowlight or color video) M-Series are housed in a rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure with 360° pan and 90° tilt fields for horizon-to-horizon visibility.
