OTTAWA, ONTARIO, October 12, 2010 –– March Networks, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today announced an innovative March Networks Command solution and six new high-performance products at the ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits. The new products deliver the enterprise-class management and video protection for which March Networks solutions are recognized industry-wide, and demonstrate the company’s commitment to open standards.
Command is a comprehensive, end-to-end video surveillance solution that enables organizations to manage their entire surveillance infrastructure using a single web-based interface. With Command, customers can install, deploy and manage their video assets from any location easily and efficiently. The powerful solution delivers mass configuration and management capabilities that lower installation and maintenance costs significantly. It also incorporates remote video gateway technology to reduce video streaming over a corporate WAN, a key advantage for large organizations with multiple remote locations.
Designed to meet industry and Information Technology (IT) standards, Command supports ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compliant video surveillance devices for seamless third-party integration, and open SQL database standards. It enables users to access video from a variety of operating systems, including Windows XP, Windows 7 and MAC OSX, via the browser.
"We are excited to introduce our new Command solution, which is the result of extensive research and development efforts," said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, responsible for March Networks’ product management and marketing functions. "With Command, customers benefit from exceptional scalability, flexibility and operational efficiency. Ultimately, it provides the centralized management and integrated access to information that organizations need to succeed in today’s highly competitive environment."
March Networks’ newest recording system and edge devices are fully compatible with Command. Each comes with an internal SD memory card and – when deployed as part of the end-to-end solution – leverages the company’s unique Shadow Archiving™ technology to ensure seamless access to redundant video, as well as intelligent video synchronization following a network failure or server outage.
The March Networks 7532 Hybrid Networked Video Recorder (NVR) is an embedded Windows OS recording system ideal for larger enterprise and commercial industrial installations. The 7532 complements March Networks’ industry-leading 4000 C Series hybrid NVRs and comes with the same exclusive docking-station architecture for rapid installation and maintenance. It supports a total of 32 high-definition (HD) IP and analog cameras (up to 16 analog), best-in-class compression and up to 8 TB of internal storage, as well as external storage options.
Four new VideoSphere IP cameras introduce additional capabilities to March Networks’ extensive camera portfolio. They are compatible with all March Networks hybrid recorders and incorporate shared features such as LDAP password configuration and ONVIF compliance.
The new cameras include:
- the compact CamPX MicroDome, the industry’s first Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) camera able to capture accurate color in near-dark conditions;
- the MDome HD PTZ, which combines HD video resolution with the power of a PTZ solution in an indoor/outdoor environmental housing built to withstand extreme temperatures;
- the MegaPX WDR MiniDome, which delivers HD 1080p video resolution and WDR; and
