For the purposes of video playback, particularly on corporate networks, Aker recommend that digital video be encoded using MPEG1 or MPEG2 formats, though we also strongly recommend that you consult your IT Department for advice in this regard. Please contact the vendor and/or inspection contractor for advice on video storage options during offshore use.

1 x null modem cable connecting Coabis PC to NETmc DVRi

Using Oceantools VO-1W or 4W
  • 1 x overlay unit per online workstation

Bandwidth requirements will vary depending upon end-user deployment and usage – e.g. replay of digital video will require a higher bandwidth (which will vary depending upon encoding format and quality) than data retrieval from the Oracle database. For onshore office-based use and most offshore/vessel-based use of Coabis, typical office network bandwidth is sufficient.
