Viewlock-II is an advanced video encryption system designed to protect law enforcement video surveillance links from interception. The system offers an excellent level of video security by employing dynamic line cut and rotate video scrambling combined with multiple encryption keys. Highly secure digital audio scrambling is also an option via the system’s Audiolock upgrade.
The Viewlock-II video encryption system is compatible with any analogue video link and, with its fast lock-in time and robust performance, is ideal for use with RF links - even in marginal reception conditions. Furthermore, with its small dimensions, rugged construction and ultra-low DC power requirement Viewlock-II is perfect for covert installations.
With these outstanding features, together with proven in-field reliability, Viewlock-II is now established as the leading video encryption system for the protection of covert video surveillance transmissions by the world’s law enforcement agencies.
Viewlock-II randomly cuts and rotates each active picture line, offering a very high level of picture concealment and security whilst maintaining link compatibility. Viewlock-II even automatically configures itself for 525 line NTSC or 625 line PAL operation and is therefore compatible with almost any transmission system used throughout the world.
Optimised for wireless surveillance links
Viewlock-II has been optimised to operate with demanding transmission systems such as RF & microwave video links. It has a very fast "lock-in" time, excellent decoded picture quality and high tolerance to multipath and noise. Indeed, robust in-field performance is a major strength of the Viewlock-II video encryption system and its operation is virtually transparent to any link, resulting in little or no effect on range or performance.
Highly Secure Scrambling
Viewlock-II randomly cuts and rotates each active picture line, offering a very high level of picture concealment and security whilst maintaining link compatibility. Viewlock-II even automatically configures itself for 525 line NTSC or 625 line PAL operation and is therefore compatible with almost any analogue transmission system used throughout the world.
Covert Surveillance Installation
Viewlock II’s rugged construction, small dimensions and low DC power requirement make the system ideal for covert installations. Furthermore, its wide operating temperature range and weatherproofing to IP65 specifications, means that permanent outdoor operation is not a problem.
On Screen Display OSD
The Viewlock-II video encryption system includes an on-screen-display as standard showing information about the status of the link. The OSD shows "Secure" when the link has been successfully encoded and decoded, and "Insecure" when the video has not been scrambled. To aid fault finding and installation Viewlock-II also displays additional messages such as "No Link", when there is no video at the input of the decoder, and "No Video" when the encoder’s input is absent.
