Omnitron in the News

Irvine, CA – November 9, 2016 – Omnitron Systems, a leading manufacturer of fiber connectivity products, today announced its new Technology Partnership with Axis Communications. The Omnitron Systems’ OmniConverter™ Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) injector media converters are designed and field-tested to be interoperable with Axis IP network cameras. Utilizing fiber cabling for distance extension and providing PoE power to the camera over copper UTP cabling, OmniConverter fiber-to-copper media converters extend the deployable reach of cameras beyond the 100 meter distance limitation of copper cabling. Classified as Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), OmniConverter media converters are capable of providing PoE (15 Watts), PoE+ (30 Watts) or HPoE (60 Watts) to multiple Axis cameras using standard UTP cabling.


Axis PoE Example

Omnitron Systems is the first company to provide High Power 60W PoE Gigabit media converters in a compact form factor, meeting the challenging power requirements of PTZ cameras. OmniConverter GHPoE/S models have been deployed worldwide with 60W Axis IP network cameras.

“The partnership between Omnitron Systems and Axis Communications provides surveillance network integrators and operators with the confidence of using Omnitron’s reliable equipment that has been verified to interoperate with the Axis cameras”. Said Greg Poggi, Omnitron’s VP of Global Business Development, Poggi Continued, “Using the integrated fiber-to-copper conversion and PoE, OmniConverters make it easy to extend the reach and provide power to the camera in one device, which simplifies installation and increases reliability”.

OmniConverter media converters are available for Fast and Gigabit Ethernet, with features that facilitate star (hub and spoke) and daisy-chain network configurations, as well as redundant fiber protection. OmniConverter products are backed by Lifetime Warranty, and are rated to support commercial or industrial temperature ranges.

”On behalf of Axis Communications, I’d like to welcome Omnitron Systems to the Technology Partner Program,” said Vince Ricco, Business Development Manager, TPP, Axis Communications, Inc. “Omnitron’s OmniConverters are a great complement to Axis cameras and we look forward to collaborating on future projects.”

Axis Communications is the market leader in network video and one of the most innovative video surveillance equipment manufacturers, and Omnitron Systems provides an extensive line of hardened PoE, PoE+ and 60W HPoE media conversion solutions. Paired together, the two companies deliver a networking solution that meets the unique needs of the IP video surveillance market, providing a simple, cost-effective and reliable solution to extend surveillance network distances.
