Meyertech VMS is complimented by eyevis visual display solutions with joint PSIM integration capabilities Control room audio visual experts eyevis UK and leading video management software company Meyertech have announced a strategic partnership agreement as they work together to provide solutions for the security sector. The two companies will use their wide range of products to supply control rooms, CCTV and Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) markets across the UK and internationally. Integration of VMS & visual display solutions The two companies have already been working closely in a number of areas. Meyertech’s scalable fourth generation VMS FUSION-Eclipse is complimented by eyevis’ visual display solutions with their joint PSIM integration capabilities. Nano, the easiest Video Management Software (VMS) in the world to use, is the first to be created exclusively for ONVIF devices and all eyevis video wall controllers are ONVIF compliant. Manchester-based Meyertech develops Video Management Software and manufactures hardware products for the CCTV surveillance and Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) markets. Its research and development facility creates new products, new applications and develops class-leading services that are helping to transform the industry. eyevis UK specialises in the development and production of high-quality video wall display systems for use in critical 24/7 control centres. Complete & integrated large screen system In addition to display hardware and video wall controllers, eyevis develops intelligent software solutions to achieve a complete and integrated large screen system.

Promoting the company’s ethos of establishing close technical working partnerships, CCTV design and manufacturing company 360 Vision Technology, in conjunction with systems control company Meyertech, have developed fast & easy set-up, and deep control for 360 Vision’s range of ONVIF compliant cameras. An objective to develop product offerings Right from the outset, the manufacturers’ technical relationship has spearheaded an objective to develop product offerings from both companies that will easily and seamlessly integrate when installed within any application, utilising the ONVIF protocol. Thanks to the ongoing technical partnership between the two UK-based technology manufacturers, simple product set-up, deep systems integration and performance benefits are built into many applications and sizes of CCTV installations across the globe. However, the manufacturers’ long-term technical partnership extends much further than just a shared protocol, as Mark Rees, Business Development Director at 360 Vision explains: “Right from the design stage of any new product, our respective R&D teams interact to ensure the camera equipment we introduce to market is as best performing, and simple to set-up and use it possibly can be.” Simple 2-click integration For installations using the enterprise-class FUSION-Eclipse Video Management Software (VMS), through to the simple (4-camera) Nano VMS, the deployment of 360 Vision ONVIF compliant cameras offers simple 2-click integration into any Meyertech control solution. David Wood, CRM and Business Development Executive for Meyertech explains: “Users of our FUSION-Eclipse VMS software simply select the ‘Discovery’ tool and then add the desired 360 Vision camera from the list of devices available in a drop down menu, the camera is then ready for use in the system – in just a couple of clicks! Further to that, the usual IP camera options such as frame rate and video resolution are easily configured in an intuitive sub menu, and features such as IR and white lights, wipers, and pre-set tours on 360 Vision’s Predator cameras can be selected directly.” In this way, any 360 Vision camera can be integrated into a Meyertech controlled CCTV system in minutes. The partnership continues to ensure that 360 Vision cameras are as simple as possible to integrate into existing systems or add to new installations - minimising installation time and maximising system performance. Mark Rees concludes: “As an acknowledged industry leader, 360 Vision is always looking to partner with like-minded CCTV systems integration manufacturers. With our long term technical relationship with Meyertech, we are not only ensuring installers and end-users can enjoy a fully integrated, hassle-free systems control experience, but to the wider world market, promote the benefits to be gained by specifying ‘Best of British’ integrated surveillance solutions.”
FUSION-Eclipse incorporates new innovative features and has been tested with leading HD camera manufacturers Meyertech, developers of the FUSION range of video and information management software for CCTV systems recently launched its 4th generation VMS application, FUSION-Eclipse at the Global MSC Security Conference & Exhibition in Bristol, Great Britain. FUSION-Eclipse is the most complex VMS Meyertech has ever developed (Powerful, Versatile and Innovative) but, importantly, it is still the easiest VMS to use on the market. EasyVMS David Wood, (Meyertech Business Development) “FUSION-Eclipse delivers the complete-package. It is ONVIF Profile-S conformant, incorporates new innovative features and has been tested with leading HD camera manufacturers”. “Integration and interoperability have been enhanced to provide PSIM capability and we have introduced NVS (Network Video Storage) technology which facilitates the recording of digital streams onto a myriad of storage media. FUSION-Eclipse also incorporates a completely new software licensing model, which when you compare cost versus performance, makes it the most competitive VMS on the market today” The entry level FUSION-Eclipse VMS application can run on a single PC catering for 20 cameras, 5 virtual monitors and 1 client. The paradox to this is that FUSION-Eclipse VMS has been developed to have No Limits, meaning, unlimited numbers of cameras and displays (analogue, HD digital or virtual), an unrestricted number of users (local or remote) and endless integration options with third party systems. The Global MSC Security Conference & Exhibition is the security industry’s leading educational event and the content of the conference presentations focused on ‘Shaping the future of CCTV’ which included highlighting the benefits of choosing FUSION VMS for public space CCTV systems.
Meyertech, the creator of Nano, the first Video Management Software application created exclusively for ONVIF camera networks, is now available from the “UK’s leading IP Camera Store” USE-IP. Phil Stewkesbury, USE-IP Managing Director, “Our technical team were impressed with the simplicity and intuitiveness of Nano. It quickly found ONVIF cameras on our network and was easy to setup”. David Wood, Meyertech Business Development, “There has been a lot of interest expressed in Nano from distributorships around the world, which when you consider we only launched it last month is fantastic. USE-IP were quick to see the potential of Nano and as a result have become the first UK distributorship to stock it”.
