Moxa of Brea, California, has introduced SoftNVR-IA 64-channel IP surveillance software. The new software allows direct communication with factory floor automation systems such as SCADA or HMI via a built-in OPC server. It also enhances system intelligence by receiving and sending event tags to activate video recording and alarms. The software can trigger video recording or alarm notifications in response to SCADA events and simultaneously provide automation administrators with status reports. It supports pre-event video recording for up to 30 seconds.
