SMS4™ release 5 includes Camera Gateway™, which allows IP cameras from top manufacturers to be integrated into the IndigoVision SMS4™ system, making it easy to upgrade a client’s existing IP-CCTV system to a quality IndigoVision solution. Camera Gateway™ enables cameras from a range of other manufacturers to be connected to an IndigoVision SMS4™ system using their native protocols and enables users to view the cameras in IndigoVision’s Control Center. The cameras can be controlled, viewed and recorded in the same way as IndigoVision cameras. Camera Gateway™ also supports PTZ control, bookmarking and record-on-motion.
Camera Gateway™ is a software service that can be installed on a Windows based server, giving customers total flexibility. The service enables multiple clients to stream and view video from the same camera.
Marcus Kneen, IndigoVision CEO, stated: “Camera Gateway™ is a game-changing product making IndigoVision SMS4™ the open system of choice. Combined with our conformance to the ONVIF standard, and our integration with other software, SMS4™ release 5 establishes IndigoVision as one of the most open IP security solutions on the market.”
SMS4™release 5 also includes record-on-motion and bookmarking for IndigoVision’s own cameras and those of supported manufacturers. Record-on-motion allows users to reduce storage by configuring the system to record video only when there is activity, while bookmarking video footage makes it easier to find and review key evidence.
Users can upgrade to SMS4™ release 5 through IndigoVision’s Software Upgrade Program (SUP).
