Programmable Surveillance Monitor / PSM Series

Programmable Surveillance Monitor

The Programmable Surveillance Monitors (PSM) are MIL-SPEC daylight readable displays with integrated Digital Video Recorders (DVR), capable of real-time recording and playback. The full-frame rate video, with H.264/MPEG-4 compression and embedded time stamping up to 1/100th of a second, is downloadable via USB port. These highly ruggedized displays offer ASCII or HEX code (via RS232 or RS422) protocol for control of external systems and/or internal display features. Multiple mounting options allow for easy integration. The PSM Series is available in four sizes.
