Vicon releases ViconNet Version 6

Hauppauge, NY: (October 8, 2010) - Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of integrated IP video surveillance and access control systems, announced today the release of ViconNet Version 6, the latest version of its open-platform video management software. ViconNet V6 offers full support for H.264 encoding and is compatible with a wide range third-party network and megapixel cameras. Its support of ONVIF standards provides users with many options for integration with consumer off-the-shelf (COTS) network video and computer hardware. .

A new web browser interface allows users of ViconNet V6 to view live and recorded video from any PC, without the use of special software or plug-ins. Other additions with Version 6 include a unique "Video Vault" feature that allows for more efficient use of long-term storage and an "Archive Wizard" that makes it easy to create authenticated archives that play back on any PC using the embedded player. ViconNet V6 is available as a software-only solution or may be ordered pre-loaded onto NVRs, Workstations or hybrid DVRs.

"ViconNet Version 6 expands upon the open-platform architecture that we have offered our customers for the past several years, now with the added benefit of full H.264 support," explained Guy Arazi, Vicon’s Digital Products Manager. "Version 6 delivers even more flexibility to integrate with 3rd party hardware and software, along with added features that improve the user experience."

ViconNet 6 will begin shipping in November, 2010. Upgrade packages are available for customers using previous versions of the software.
