IVC Acquires Longwatch Technology

Mar 09, 2011

Industrial camera supplier Industrial Video and Control (IVC) has announced the acquisition of Longwatch, a developer of video management software for industrial automation and process control applications. IVC, based in Newton, Mass., is known for its industrial camera systems that incorporate ruggedized cameras and state-of-the-art video management software.

Longwatch's Video Surveillance system is able to transmit video over existing instrumentation networks at speeds as low as 9600 baud. Its Video Historian automatically links video with various user databases (including data historians).

IVC will maintain the Longwatch brand and operate the company as a division of IVC. IVC also plans to make both companies’ product lines interactive while leveraging building the Longwatch brand’s reputation for innovation in remote monitoring and process control. IVC also plans to add support of its camera offering to the Longwatch environment.
