American Dynamics (part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco), has released version 4.5 of its powerful, high-performance VideoEdge NVR. New features provide customers with more secure and efficient systems for businesses requiring 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.
“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. “This latest version of VideoEdge responds to those security-critical situations with effective, reliable and intuitive tools.”
Carney added: “We’re focused on providing the unique features required by customers who rely on their surveillance systems for fast, real-time incident response.”
Such customers include security managers in retail environments who are looking for solutions to theft as well as data that helps them better understand customer behaviour.
VideoEdge provides both. Its powerful Heat Mapping tool means that retailers may spot 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 vertical markets such as sports and entertainment, healthcare and other venues for tracking foot traffic patterns, thus ensuring visitors are receiving adequate assistance.
Inclusion of a new Watermarking process
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’s 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 end users manage all of their live and recorded video from VideoEdge, exacqVision, Intellex and ADTVR video recording solutions 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 the entire organisation 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 and into the same IP system has never been easier.
For those customers at smaller sites, victor Express has been designed to eliminate the need for an SQL database, thus simplifying and saving on installation time.
The VideoEdge NVMS and victor Unified Client are available through American Dynamics’ worldwide channel partners.
