New features improve security and provide essential business intelligence for increased efficiency
American Dynamics, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, has released version 4.5 of its powerful, high-performance VideoEdge NVR with new features that provide customers more secure and efficient systems for businesses and organizations that require an active surveillance environment.
VideoEdge Network Video Recorder (NVR) adds a new level of ease and efficiency for surveillance operators. With features such as Auto Discovery, users can locate cameras on the network and assign IP addresses to any VideoEdge NVR with the click of a button, reducing time significantly.
“The changing landscape for surveillance is dictating a new list of ‘must-haves’,” said Steve Carney, Director of Video Product Line Management for Tyco Security Products, “and this latest version of VideoEdge responds to those security-critical situations with effective, reliable and intuitive tools. “We are focused on providing the unique features required by customers who rely on their surveillance systems for fast, real time incident response.”
Such customers include those in retail environments who are looking for solutions to theft as well as data that helps them better understand customer behavior. VideoEdge provides both. Its powerful Heat Mapping tool lets retailers see where customers are lingering – important information that lets retail marketers see where the hot items are, or where they may need additional promotional displays. This feature is also very useful in other markets such as sports and entertainment, healthcare, and other venues for tracking foot traffic patterns, ensuring visitors are receiving adequate assistance.
The latest version of VideoEdge also includes a new Watermarking process that allows security officials to assign a unique visual mark to the video that is specific to its business. This maintains the integrity of recorded video and protects the owner from fraudulent use of the video.
The victor Unified Client helps you manage all of your live and recorded video from VideoEdge, exacqVision, Intellex and ADTVR video recording solutions, all from one, intuitive interface. victor is part of a powerful NVMS that includes advanced policy management, health monitoring, Smart Search, instant playback, and more, ensuring the security and safety of your entire organization whether a single site, or a multi-location, globally dispersed enterprise. For those enterprise customers who use Software House C•CURE 9000, victor Enterprise provides unification for SAS (satellite application server) and MAS (master application server). Deploying victor and C•CURE 9000 software at the same time, into the same IP system has never been easier. For those customers in smaller sites, victor Express has been designed to eliminate the need for an SQL database, thus simplifying and saving installation time.
The VideoEdge NVMS and victor Unified Client are available through American Dynamics’ worldwide channel partners.
