Volicon Monitors SKY Italia

SKY Italia has implemented a 52-channel Volicon Observer video monitoring system for compliance recording and fault detection. The new equipment replaces SKY Italia's previous tape-based model at SKY Italia's Milan facility.

In addition to round the clock monitoring and fault detection, the Observer instantly archives content from 52 channels for up to 90 days via RAID-5 storage hardware, with four spare recording channels at the ready.

The move to server-based monitoring eliminates the need to change out videotapes manually and saves space, occupying a smaller footprint than the facility's old VCR systems and avoids the need for external storage.

The Observer was purchased through Rome-based systems integrator Allyn.
