SoleraTec LLC, a provider of innovative video lifecycle management and storage products, introduces the new Phoenix Live Viewer Express™ family of video surveillance IP-camera viewing applications. This affordable software family is designed for individuals and small companies that require an IP-camera viewing system to monitor video surveillance cameras within their network.
The application is easy on system resources, keeping it fast, light, and versatile enough to meet the needs of viewing numerous security IP-camera feeds. Phoenix Live Viewer Express is compatible on Windows XP to Windows 8 workstations as well as Mac OS X systems.
Phoenix Live Viewer Express is capable of working with thousands of IP-camera models from over 190 camera manufacturers and works with standard definition and high definition (HD) –including megapixel– cameras.
This utility supports MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and other IP-camera video formats with multiple resolutions. One-way audio is also supported for those cameras with built-in microphones, allowing users to listen in on a viewing area. The auto-discovery tool allows for quick installation of network IP-cameras utilising Bonjour, uPnP, and ONVIF discovery functionality.
Live Viewer Express has the ability to mix-and-match various camera models in a viewing matrix of up to 16 cameras. Users can select from a 1-up view, 2x3 view, 4x4 view, or numerous combinations up to 16 cameras. Open two Live Viewer Express windows to monitor 32 cameras.
Customisable viewing modes:
Create various layouts and viewing modes that best suit an environment while delivering crisp, clear video quality, for reliable identification of people and events. By creating pre-defined camera layouts, users can create customisable video patrols (also known as “carouseling” or “touring”) that automatically cycle through various layout modes. This allows for ideal IP-camera display and scene coverage for all video surveillance cameras available. Create camera-pools to quickly and easily load a set of specific IP-cameras.
Phoenix Live View Express also supports joystick and mouse controls for pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) ability of those IP-cameras that have PTZ functionality. Users can easily switch between matrix view and full-screen view by double-clicking on the camera pane. With PTZ and full screen viewing, users can view in great detail all video feeds.
“With the increasing use of video surveillance cameras and the specific growth of network IP-cameras, being able to easily view all of your video surveillance cameras is becoming more than just something the security guard looks at,” stated Mark Armstrong, CEO of SoleraTec. “An intuitive user friendly interface and a wide availability of network IP-camera compatibility delivers excellent peace-of-mind.”
Watch streaming video of incidents live on a Windows or Mac computer and manage the pool of network IP-cameras with ease. Phoenix Live Viewer Express is an ideal application for the security minded individual or small company.
