FLAMENCO ISLAND, PANAMA – Marine security, monitoring, tracking, surveillance, acoustic deterrent, and cloaking systems supplier GOST® (Global Ocean Security Technologies) will demonstrate the GOST Watch HD remote video surveillance system integrated with products from leading manufacturers KVH® Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: KVHI) and FLIR® Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLIR) at the 2014 Panama International Boat Show, June 20-22, at Flamenco Marina.
GOST Watch HD provides high definition surveillance with high speed internet connection via the included G3G-GSM/CDMA cellular communicator, allowing users to remotely monitor up to six analog cameras per login at one time from anywhere in the world over the internet. Watch live video of the yacht as it leaves the harbor or view activities in the salon, staterooms or engine room. Cameras can be set to record clips to the website based on motion detection and sent to designated recipients via text or email.
GOST Watch HD Apps allow customers to access and view their cameras with the touch of a button from their iPhone or Android devices. An updated version of the app is now available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store that provides additional features for GOST Watch HD users, such as the ability to view stored video clips and remotely arm/disarm web-based motion detection directly from their phones. An iPad version of the app will also be available later this year.
KVH TracPhone VIP Series antenna systems, designed to work exclusively with KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband? network, can be integrated with GOST Watch HD 3G video surveillance systems to provide customers with live streaming video via satellite from on board the vessel outside of cellular coverage areas.
The GOST Watch HD TracPhone VIP Series Packages provide remote surveillance using a high speed internet connection through the KVH TracPhone VIP series antenna systems utilizing KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband? network, along with a GOST G3G-GSM/CDMA data communicator for use when in cellular coverage areas. The KVH TracPhone VIP Series with Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM) has a pre-configured intelligent “best use” network management switch that will automatically prioritize cellular data when in cellular range and will automatically switch the data feed to the KVH mini-VSAT network when the boat is outside of cellular coverage.
GOST Watch HD VIP Series Packages include everything needed to remotely monitor all activities on board the vessel from anywhere in the world via computer or smart phone over the internet. Several packages are available to meet the needs of yacht owners and crews. These packages combine the KVH and cellular data modules with the assorted line of GOST cameras and IVR recorders accessible over the internet.
The award-winning M-Series is FLIR’s premier line of maritime thermal night vision systems. Single-payload (thermal only) and dual-payload (thermal and lowlight or color video) M-Series are housed in a rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure with 360° pan and 90° tilt fields for horizon-to-horizon visibility
Yachts equipped with the GOST Watch HD and FLIR M-Series thermal night vision systems have remote access to streaming video surveillance of onboard cameras. Users are able to completely control their FLIR M-Series cameras as if they were on board with a FLIR ‘puck’ on screen. The easy-to-use, web-based pan, tilt, zoom and mode control interface on the GOST Watch HD website works like the control puck on board, with a few modifications that enhance the capabilities for remote surveillance. The most noteworthy of these modifications is a one touch “Surveillance Scan” button that instantly performs a peripheral sweep of the area immediately surrounding the vessel.
