With more than thirty years of experience supplying positioning

systems for high-stakes video security systems, Moog QuickSet
has unique perspectives and experience with increasingly
IT-centric architectures.

n Incorporates Various Sensors on a Pan/Tilt System

n Embeds Processing & Software tasks at the source

To simplify command protocol design, the node handles all of the distinct
sensor interfaces, platform dynamics, pointing automation and
camera lens control. Using COTS Pan & Tilt platforms with embedded
microprocessors and auxiliary motor drivers, it is possible to control
multiple dissimilar devices entirely through commands implemented
at the node. Stored in the node memory are various preset pointing
coordinates and touring routines that control automated motion
functions when operating without operator control. The systems
can also be commanded to respond to specific intrusion alarms.
Moog QuickSet products provide several tangible benefits:

n Reduce Network Bandwidth Requirements

n Increase Real-Time System Performance & Supports
n Reduce System Control Software Complexity
n Lower Lifetime Expense & Greater Reliability
