|The solution can also link as many third-party devices and web pages as needed, making the system truly scalable
Arteco, global provider of video event management systems software solutions, announced recently the release of Open Connector, a highly streamlined, interoperable platform that consolidates third-party notifications and events from various devices and systems, such as surveillance cameras, access control, alarm, building automation and traffic control systems into one easy-to-use, intuitive management platform.
The platform, which will celebrate its commercial launch at this year’s ISC West Conference and Expo in Las Vegas at booth 6097, promises an even larger range of customisation and integration capabilities through its simplified, modern user interface, enabling security operations centres to better organise and empower efficient tactical responses to incidents according to mission-critical information.
Open Connector allows customers to programme and customise the user experience to best suit an environment’s specific applications. Layout formatting, panel dimensions, iconography, lists and maps can be edited and personalised with drag-and-drop functionality, streamlining training requirements. The solution can also link as many third-party devices and web pages as needed, making the system truly scalable for both large and small applications. Event notifications – also all customisable – are defined with specific search criteria to guarantee that important incidents identified.
Integration and interoperability
The advanced programming behind Open Connector opens the door for unparalleled integration with more third-party technologies, delivering the signature efficiency and intuitive configuration Arteco is known for. The development of the platform was driven by the desire to eliminate the need for end-to-end proprietary solutions that are costly to manage, integrate and deploy. Open Connector is the latest of Arteco’s video security product portfolio to be ONVIF compliant, reaffirming the company’s commitment to interoperability within the changing security landscape.
“The demand for increased integration and streamlined management between multiple devices propelled the creation of Open Connector,” said Steve Birkmeier, Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Arteco. “Additionally, Arteco was driven by a strong commitment to interoperability and using close integration to allow our customers to realise new levels of security and business awareness. This platform will allow for unprecedented security insight, ease of use and cost effectiveness,, and when used alongside robust analytics solutions, the true benefits of event-driven intelligence will continue to change the nature of video security monitoring.”
Arteco is leading the charge in redefining video management software systems by carving out a category within the market, Video Event Management Software (VEMS). VEMS is the strongest technological tool on the market that supports the concept of event-driven intelligence (EDI), which changes the focus to incident-driven responses. Open Connector uses EDI to dramatically reduce the time, bandwidth and costs necessary to carry out tactical responses by increasing the efficiency of security teams.
