Videoworks Revealed Latest New Systems for Cybersecurity

Videoworks revealed at the METSTRADE 2018 all the secrets of the onboard technologies developed by the Italian company’s team. Offering customers its know-how and best possible technological integrations, Videoworks fully responds to individual requirements using the best products on the market for more than 20 years. 

New Cisco ASA 5506

Improvements in onboard technologies for superyachts mean that today’s owners, guests and crews can now be online anywhere, all the time. But these same technologies also expose systems and passengers to a growing risk of IT attack. It’s important to understand, monitor and deal with this kind of risk.

This is an impelling need. With its experience in IT integration for yachting, Videoworks is in an ideal position to analyse, define and produce customised cybersecurity solutions for new and refitted yachts. A cutting-edge system that will be the focus of the Italian company’s stand at METS.

The Cisco ASA 5506 is a professional network security device incorporating fire power FTD threat defence software (a service for real-time identification and prevention of viruses and threats from the web). The device permits multiple levels of security on a single platform, guaranteeing a powerful, integrated defence and system management before, during and after security violations.

It also permits control over all activities taking place on the network and acquisition of useful information on users, apps, devices, threats, files and vulnerabilities. An automated system assesses the potential impact of threats and generates a list of priorities, cutting response time to deal with these threats to onboard network security.

New Creston Remote Control

Videoworks can integrate all domotics and control of onboard systems in a single device of any kind. The Creston remote control, perfect for less experienced users, is one such example, but owners can also opt for dedicated apps installed on smartphones, iPads and iPhones. One such example is the ITWmode app, designed by ItWorks exclusively for Videoworks, easily downloadable from stores and completely free of charge. The app is compatible with all iOS devices and also exists in a web version that may be installed on Android devices or using clients such as Google Chrome. These apps permit management of a whole ecosystem of services, with customised content and graphics to respond to all kinds of needs. This multiservice app permits management of all services from an ordinary smartphone.

New Speakers

The Videoworks stand will also feature a self-supporting structure integrating a professional 4K Sony 65” display and James Loudspeaker waterproof speakers for outdoor use. The C.110sm-ACT speakers will be accompanied by a 10” subwoofer with a built-in amplifier and DSP. This unique product is designed to offer deep, even bass with a discrete, compact design. Its custom colours and perforated aluminium grid permit flush assembly to make it as discrete as possible.
The C-806TiM-ACT is a more compact in-wall 8” speaker with a built-in amplifier and DSP designed for assembly in smaller spaces. This versatile, elegant solution makes no compromises, offering designers and music fans crystal clear treble, a vast range of mid-tones and plenty of deep bass.
