evolving from Analogue to IP CCTV Sometimes as a customer or integrator you face an often confusing choice about the best way to bring CCTV systems into the 21st century computer age. Recognising this quandary, CBC has developed VSoIP, possibly the first truly software based hybrid video management solution. VSoIP’s main strength is that it doesn’t just allow you to connect to a multitude of IP cameras and video codecs – it also enables you to connect your existing analogue cameras, thereby achieving the best of both worlds. The Ganz VSoIP system has been designed to provide the integration and benefits of IP based products whilst offering advantages of using your existing analogue equipment. 14
