DVTEL, INC., the video surveillance solutions provider, announces integration of its powerful Latitude enterprise-class network video management system (NVMS) with the Symmetry security management platform by AMAG Technology, an access control, IP video and intrusion detection system provider.
The integration expands the capabilities of both platforms, allowing joint customers to benefit from the integration of IP video surveillance and access control to gain new levels of situational awareness. AMAG’s Symmetry access control system permits users to view live and recorded video from Latitude-managed cameras within Symmetry’s client software, based on events or manual requests.
“We are pleased to offer integration with DVTEL’s feature-rich Latitude surveillance software as it provides an additional opportunity for our customers to maximise the value and ease-of-use of the Symmetry access control system,” said Shae Taylor, Extended Business Solutions Program Manager, AMAG Technology. “Both DVTEL and AMAG bring valuable capabilities to the table for security integrators and end users, and we are happy DVTEL participated in AMAG’s Extended Business Solutions program to provide our customers the benefits of both.”
Latitude PTZ controls now operational within the Symmetry client software include pan, tilt, zoom, focus, iris and go-to-preset operations. Users can play video of access control events captured by Latitude within the Symmetry application and can configure Latitude cameras within Symmetry. Other capabilities include launching video via camera icons on a graphical map, and controlling video playback using Symmetry’s timeline control.
“Access control users increasingly demand seamless integration with video management systems, and the new integration now enables us to augment AMAG’s Symmetry with the powerful capabilities of our Latitude platform, all in a single user interface,” said Zvi Peled, COO & Chief Product Officer, DVTEL. “The addition of Latitude’s functionality provides more flexibility to view, record, and export audio and video to meet the increasingly complex need to monitor a wide range of events and alarms.”
