March Networks, a provider of intelligent IP video solutions, recently introduced the MegaPX Modular ATM Camera. Providing sharp, 3MP images and an impressive 3-foot vertical view of ATM customers in all lighting conditions, the camera enables banking investigators and law enforcement to clearly identify faces and other distinguishing features. Its two-component design ensures easy installation in compact ATMs, including the NCR SelfServ 34 Walk-Up. The camera is the newest complement to March Networks’ comprehensive banking solution used by more than 500 financial institutions worldwide.

MegaPX Modular ATM Camera

“The Modular ATM Camera delivers exceptional images. One of our credit union customers tested it recently and was so impressed with the video quality that they only want these cameras in their ATMs moving forward,” said Jeff Popoff, Installation and Service Technician with systems integrator Chubb Edwards. “The camera is also very easy to install, so it’s definitely one we would recommend.”

The MegaPX Modular ATM Camera is the most recent addition to March Networks’ line of purpose-built ATM IP cameras, mounts, and locking brackets. Measuring just 1.1 H x 1.0 W x 1.4 D inches with a separate decoding unit and flexible 40-inch cable, it is available with a standard or View Window mounting bracket—both of which lock securely into place to ensure the camera does not shift, tilt, or fall back during daily ATM vaulting—saving banks the time and cost of repeat service calls.

“The camera is also very easy to install, so it’s definitely one we would recommend”

Providing comprehensive video evidence

Similar to the self-contained MegaPX ATM Camera, the modular camera combines high dynamic range (HDR) and robust low-light performance to capture clear video in high-contrast lighting, such as the direct sunlight and near-dark conditions experienced at ATM vestibules and drive-throughs at different times of the day. Available with a 2.8mm standard lens, the camera’s wide field-of-view (FOV) records ATM users from the waist up rather than just capturing faces to provide more comprehensive video evidence. In addition, the camera can be configured to auto-correct images recorded behind tinted ATM glass enclosures.

To speed up maintenance, each MegaPX Modular ATM Camera includes a unique QR code that technicians can scan with their smartphone or tablet using March Networks’ free GURU Smartphone Application. GURU automates typically time-consuming tasks such as determining a camera’s serial number, verifying its warranty status, and completing online return forms. The app also connects systems integrators with how-to video tutorials, product manuals and convenient troubleshooting tools to help them work more efficiently and resolve camera issues onsite.

Purpose-build design and capabilities

“With card data theft on the rise and reports of new ‘shimmer’ fraud targeting chip-based credit and debit cards, banks and credit unions want to know they are capturing the best video evidence possible at their ATMs,” said Dan Cremins, Head of Global Product Management with March Networks. “This new ATM camera enables this thanks to its purpose-built design and capabilities that are consistent with March Networks’ leadership position providing intelligent end-to-end video solutions to financial institutions to help address their real-world business challenges.”

March Networks will showcase the MegaPX Modular ATM Camera and its complete banking solution in Booth 25041 at the International Security Conference and Exposition (ISC West), April 5-7, at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada.

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.

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)?
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?
