FourSight Advanced Video Quad

FourSight is an advanced video quad display system that allows up to four cameras to be viewed on one screen making it ideal for surveillance monitoring applications.

Unlike less sophisticated quads, FourSight’s advanced digital video processing provides full control of each picture’s size and position together with picture cropping and overlay. For ease of use, the system includes 16 pre-set display modes and can be reconfigured via its RS232 port and PC configuration utility. FourSight provides excellent picture quality coupled with real-time update rate per channel.

FourSight Advanced Video Quad

FourSight will operate with almost any video source, automatically configuring itself for PAL or NTSC operation. FourSight consists of a small DC powered unit that is rugged and weatherproof making it ideal for covert and mobile installations.

For OEM applications, the system may be supplied as a unit or PCB, together with full support for interfacing to the product’s serial control protocol.
