Honeywell introduces entry-level IP video system ideal for small businesses

Honeywell has released a complete high-definition video surveillance system ideal for small business owners who need sharper image quality typically associated with larger, more expensive security systems. The entry-level system combines Honeywell's new MAXPRO NVR (network video recorder) XE with the latest additions to its line of low-cost Performance Series IP cameras, and further eases the transition from analogue to digital video for smaller companies such as retail and convenience stores, healthcare centres and professional office buildings."Many organisations think switching from analogue to IP video is cost-prohibitive, especially for small-to-mid-size businesses, but the MAXPRO NVR XE family aims to dispel that myth by providing high image quality alongside truly affordable technology," said Ulrich Hopfstock, product marketing manager EMEA, Honeywell Security Group. "This system was designed to capture sharp pictures, be affordable for smaller businesses, and be as easy as a DVR for a dealer to set up and operate, even with limited IT knowledge."Honeywell's MAXPRO NVR XE solution currently supports PSIA video standards and will be expanded to support ONVIF video standards in Q4 2011. It includes four recommended entry-level, indoor and outdoor IP cameras recently added to the company's Performance Series line. The resulting image quality can assist investigations by helping companies more accurately identify objects, people and activities captured on video.Additionally, the system helps operators quickly assess alarm event information by simultaneously displaying alarm, pre-alarm, post-alarm and live video. It also allows operators to view live video while performing searches, and includes Honeywell's patent-pending Video Surround feature that helps security personnel more efficiently track suspects as they move between areas.The MAXPRO NVR XE offers 8 or 16 channels, a local monitoring display, and supports the HD format. To simplify installation, the total solution comes with pre-installed software and camera licenses for quick setup and system scalability.

Honeywell has introduced an all-in-one network video recorder (NVR) designed to help organisations simplify the transition from traditional analogue video surveillance to the latest digital, IP-based technology. MAXPRO® NVR SE (Standard Edition) includes pre-configured hardware, software, storage and all required licenses in one box, allowing for easier setup than conventional NVRs. It also includes a patented feature that allows security personnel to more efficiently track individuals as they move through buildings."Implementing IP video surveillance has become one of the most talked-about trends in physical security, but talking about it and actually making it happen are two different things," said Ulrich Hopfstock, Product Manager at Honeywell Security Group EMEA, which designs and manufactures video and access control technologies for a wide variety of industries. "MAXPRO NVR SE was designed to make that transition easier with out-of-the-box functionality, with less hassle and with more features that ultimately improve security."MAXPRO NVR SE is one of several Honeywell offerings designed to help organisations simplify the transition from analogue to IP video surveillance. One of those offerings includes its MAXPRO® VMS video management system which helps users protect their existing investment while supporting both analogue and IP cameras.Having pre-configured hardware allows MAXPRO NVR SE users to install the system without having to purchase additional software or IP licenses. Furthermore, users save even more with reduced training and support costs because the user interface, based on MAXPRO VMS, is familiar and intuitive. The NVR is the first product of its kind to offer Honeywell's patented Video Surround feature, which allows operators to improve security by easily tracking and monitoring an individual moving through a building in real time or post event. Operators can place the camera view of interest in the centre of their screens, and surrounding camera views will automatically appear around the primary one. As the individual moves from one camera view to another, the operator can click and drag the appropriate camera view to the centre and surrounding camera views will re-adjust. The system also features a unique Preview Search functionality that presents overviews of specific time frames, enabling operators to more quickly find and view video evidence in a matter of a few mouse clicks.Because MAXPRO NVR SE is standards compliant, it easily integrates with larger management platforms such as MAXPRO VMS and a wide range of IP cameras, including Honeywell's H.264 IP cameras-a new line of IP cameras that offer extremely crisp images at minimal bandwidth, especially in low-light conditions. MAXPRO NVR SE can be used to create a total security solution that encompasses video surveillance, access control and alarm management.For more information regarding these and other Honeywell IP video surveillance systems, please visit www.honeywellipsolutions.com/uk
