American Dynamics, part of Tyco Security Products, is pleased to announce the latest version of its revolutionary network video management system comprised of the VideoEdge NVR and victor unifying client. This NVMS provides the very best in embedded analytics, mapping, and bandwidth management, and is now unified with Software House C-CURE 9000 access control and a host of other applications.
The completely re-architected VideoEdge NVR is available in a variety of form factors (rack-mount, desktop, software-only); the rack-mount server features up to 36 TB of raw storage, whilst the software-only version allows you to use your preferred hardware vendor, providing flexibility and savings. The new NVR has an intuitive administrative interface and easy-to-use setup wizard that helps reduce installation and set-up time to minutes vs. hours. VideoEdge includes embedded analytics that lets security personnel quickly search through hours of recorded video, or flag suspicious behaviours and movements in real-time. Activities such object detection, linger, exit and enter direction, object removed or abandoned and shelf sweep can be analysed in detail, helping to solve security events and issues quickly.
Additionally, VideoEdge utilises dynamic bandwidth management to ensure high-quality images can be viewed without negatively impacting network bandwidth, whether transmitted over a LAN, WAN, wireless or public 3G connection.
“Since releasing VideoEdge and victor nearly two years ago, we’ve listened intently to customers and partners so that we could bring to market what we feel is the most intuitive, most powerful NVMS on the market,” said Steve Carney, director of product management for American Dynamics. “For us, the clear objective is to unify our customers’ security world so everyone can enjoy the benefits formerly reserved for those with Security Operations Centres. Our NVMS, powered by victor and VideoEdge, unifies IP and analogue video, intrusion, real-time location tracking, access control, and other applications such as visitor management, business continuity, and more.”
A perfect example of this unified approach is Object Association which allows customers to link up to five devices together to get a holistic view of an incident. For example, an alarm at a card reader can automatically call up the video feed from the associated cameras at that door, and trigger icons on a map of their facility to go into alarm – all through one unified interface.
The American Dynamics NVMS powered by victor and VideoEdge is available through Tyco Security Products worldwide distribution channels.
