March Networks®, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to announce that it is demonstrating its innovative March Networks Command™ solution and six new high-performance products in Stand L07 M10, Hall 2 at Sicurezza 2010, November 17-19 in Milan, Italy. The company is also hosting an exhibitor's workshop during the event focused on advanced video management for large distributed architectures, and present at a conference session on IP video solutions interoperability.

March Networks' newest products deliver the enterprise-class management and video protection its solutions are recognised for industry-wide. They are ONVIF™ (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compliant and leverage the company's unique Shadow Archiving™ technology to ensure seamless access to redundant video, as well as intelligent video synchronisation following a network failure or server outage.

The new March Networks Command is a comprehensive video surveillance solution that enables organisations to install, deploy and manage their video assets from any location using a single, web-based interface. Command delivers mass configuration and management capabilities that lower installation and maintenance costs significantly. It also incorporates remote video gateway technology to reduce video streaming over a corporate WAN, a key advantage for large organisations with multiple remote locations.

"With Command, customers benefit from exceptional scalability, flexibility and operational efficiency," said Fabrizio Colciago, March Networks' Chief Technology Officer and Managing Director, Europe, Middle East and Africa. "Ultimately, it provides the centralised management and integrated access to information that organisations need to succeed in today's highly competitive environment, and we are excited to introduce it to the market."

March Networks' newest VideoSphere® IP cameras and recording system are fully compatible with Command and ONVIF standards. The cameras incorporate internal SD high capacity memory cards and features such as LDAP password configuration. The new products include:

  • The compact CamPX MicroDome, the industry's first Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) camera able to capture accurate colour in near-dark conditions with integrated Pixim Seawolf chip technology;
  • The MDome HD PTZ, which combines HD video resolution with the power of a PTZ solution in an indoor/outdoor environmental housing built to withstand extreme temperatures;
  • The MegaPX WDR MiniDome, which delivers HD 1080p video resolution and WDR;
  • The MegaPX NanoDome, a low-profile HD camera with flexible video streaming and a sleek, unobtrusive housing ideal for inconspicuous surveillance applications; and
  • The March Networks 7532 Hybrid Networked Video Recorder (NVR), an embedded Windows® OS recording system ideal for larger enterprise installations, with support for up to 32 IP and analogue cameras, H.264 compression, up to 8 TB of internal storage, external storage options and March Networks' exclusive docking-station architecture for rapid installation and maintenance.

Rounding out its new product offerings is the recently announced March Networks Searchlight Skimming Detection (SD), a powerful data analytic that enhances the company's comprehensive Financial Solutions. Searchlight SD monitors surveillance video and ATM transaction data simultaneously and alerts investigators daily to suspicious and potentially fraudulent activity at ATMs via a web-based dashboard.

Which security technology is most misunderstood, and why?
Which security technology is most misunderstood, and why?

The general public gets much of its understanding of security industry technology from watching movies and TV. However, there is a gap between reality and the fantasy world. Understanding of security technologies may also be shaped by news coverage, including expression of extreme or even exaggerated concerns about privacy. The first step in addressing any challenge is greater awareness, so we asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: Which security industry technology is most misunderstood by the general public and why?

Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?
Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?

With the postponement of tradeshows and events due to the effects of COVID-19, Vanderbilt and ComNet have taken their high quality, innovative solutions online, directly to their customer base. Through an Online Events and Training resource, you can stay connected with the brands’ top resources and products, as well as join upcoming product webinars hosted by their in-house experts. With a majority of the world currently working from home, businesses must respond to this changing landscape. As such, Vanderbilt and ComNet have turned to online resources to share new product demonstrations and other company news. One cornerstone of the ACRE brands approach was the launch of their Online Events and Training resource page. Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at Vanderbilt, credits this online resource as the anchor to their communicative success with customers at present. “Through weekly webinars delivered by our in-house experts, Vanderbilt and ComNet have embraced more virtual opportunities to continuously communicate to our customers regarding our latest and most relevant products,” he says. “To date, our webinars have covered a wide range of industry topics such as Why Physical Security and Cloud go together, and The most recent developments in card cloning and reader hacking. Attendance to these online events has proved popular and effective in keeping communication with our customer base open and engaging.” Each webinar ends with a Q&A section, as well as follow-up articles on the most asked questions, plus recordings of the webinars being made available to attendees. As such, the webinar approach has proven a receptive approach for Vanderbilt and ComNet. The Online Events and Training resource acts as a one-stop-shop for all virtual information. Overall, the page outlines the brands’ value-added resources for customers, including the ability to request a remote product demonstration, the availability of free online training, 24/7 access to the Vanderbilt webshop, plus the aforementioned weekly webinars. Vanderbilt and ComNet’s business mantra is built on a foundation of customer-focused core values such as empowerment, collaboration, and high performance and Wilks credits this mentality with their ability to keep information flowing to their base during the present pandemic. “The ACRE brands moved early to kick-start online webinars and ramp up awareness of their already existing online training and shopping options. Now more than ever, it is important to keep customers up to date on the latest offerings,” Wilks explains. “Our commitment has always been to make their customer’s security journey the best possible experience, and that is what this Online Events and Learning page primarily focuses on,” he concludes.

What’s new with video management systems (VMS)?

Video management systems (VMS) have been around almost since the advent of IP cameras. During those years, VMSs have evolved from software that provides basic functionality to more user-friendly systems offering a growing list of capabilities, many of them related to analysing data as well as recording and displaying video. But the evolution is far from over. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What’s new with video management systems (VMS), and what are the new opportunities?
