|Honeywell's MAXPRO® VMS controls multiple sources of video subsystems to enhance video surveillance|
today announced the launch of MAXPRO® VMS, the latest addition to its integrated security offering. The new video management platform seamlessly integrates traditional analogue components with the latest digital and IP video systems to form a single comprehensive surveillance network. It offers an intelligent way to leverage an existing and new video infrastructure to collect, manage and present video in a clear and concise manner, making it ideal for facilities requiring at-risk critical infrastructure protection such as airports, seaports, large multi-site commercial buildings and other high-profile facilities.
MAXPRO VMS rapidly interfaces with video subsystems such as Network Video Recorders (NVRs), Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) and analogue switchers, enabling users to mix and match applications within their existing surveillance platform and maximise use of their initial investments.
The unique video management platform bridges the gap between analogue and digital video systems. While it provides a powerful and scalable commercial off-the-shelf NVR, it also integrates with analogue matrix switchers, making it an all-inclusive security management solution. The deployment of this system helps security professionals to more efficiently manage multiple sources of video by giving the same look, touch and feel to different technologies. In addition to providing a common user interface across Honeywell's video systems, the platform's scalable, open architecture offers centralised command and control capabilities to allow management of third-party video components.
"It's essential that today's security technologies work together to provide real-time information when you need it," said Uli Hopfstock, IP video product manager, Honeywell Systems Group. "Seamless integration is the cornerstone for providing our customers with proactive security solutions that help to deter crime."
MAXPRO VMS integrates with Honeywell's Pro-Watch® access control security management system and other Honeywell products and solutions
Because it can leverage the existing video infrastructure of a site, this new platform offers users the flexibility required to manage multiple sites and locations with a combination of centralised and distributed analogue and IP technology. It also provides rules-based operations that trigger powerful virtual matrix switching of digital and analogue systems.
In addition, MAXPRO VMS can integrate with the Honeywell's Pro-Watch® access control security management system and other Honeywell products and solutions.
