|The new version allows end users to increase situation awareness and emergency preparedness|
CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, is pleased to announce the release of version 4.5 of IPSecurityCenter, its award winning PSIM software.
This latest release, IPSecurityCenter version 4.5 adds a number of new features which allow end users to increase situation awareness and emergency preparedness. It also enhances the user experience, making it easier for them to perform their operations using the updated Human Machine Interface (HMI).
In parallel, enhancements have been made that are designed to support CNL software channel partners to rapidly deploy PSIM solutions for their customers. Some of the key new features are;
Video Export - This offers huge time and cost savings as video from any connected camera, regardless of its geographic location or its manufacturer can be exported for incident investigation. It allows operators to select evidence by selecting cameras from a map, cameras related to an incident, from a list of favourites or by searching for a camera. Once a list of cameras have been specified the operator can select the desired location for the exported video and IPSecurityCenter will then automatically schedule, create and advise when the files are ready.
One IPSecurityCenter user centralises video from over 3000 locations allowing video to be exported from over 10,000 cameras. Prior to this, the organisation was exporting locally and reliant on operatives to transport this evidence, which was time consuming and expensive. This time saving is critical for evidence review when resolving incidents.
Alarm Types - Provide easy management of alarm process configuration. This allows rapid deployment of solutions as alarm configurations can be done through an intuitive wizard based user interface. It also makes it easier to pull in alarms from new systems when extending existing deployments.
Tile Layouts - Provide out of the box access to a wide range of video salvos. Salvos can be created, saved and recalled at any time and are governed by IPSecurityCenter's advanced permission system. A tile layout can contain a mixture of cameras from any supported video system, allowing the operator to access all visual intelligence needed to manage the situation.
Sequences - Provide built-in support for video patrols. A sequence can include cameras from any supported video management system and can recall saved preset positions.
Reporting Interface - Allows report generation from IPSecurityCenter data using standard enterprise business intelligence tools such as Crystal Reports, Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services and others.
Dashboard - Includes out of the box pre-configured KPI dashboards and expands the user interface dashboard controls
Jon Lunnerfeldt, Product Manager at CNL Software comments "With every new release IPSecurityCenter increases in sophistication. We are working closely with channel partners, end users and security consultants to add features which answer some of the most difficult challenges faced by the security industry today. Our efforts are not only enabling PSIM to become quicker and easier to deploy, but at the same time we are constantly adding richer features to aid security operations around the globe."
These developments ensure CNL Software continues to lead the PSIM market with product research and innovation as a cornerstone of its activities. It recently launched the IPSCDevNetTM, a new concept within PSIM that allows third parties to build integration drivers to the IPSecurityCenter platform.
