Verint enhances its Nextiva NVR platform

MELVILLE, N.Y., March 11, 2010 - Verint Systems Inc. today announced enhancements to Nextiva EdgeVR, the enterprise-class IP-based network video recorder (NVR) series from Verint Video Intelligence Solutions. New patent-pending hybrid analog/IP capabilities, advanced integrations and virtual presence functionality demonstrate Verint's ongoing investment in and innovation around its Nextiva EdgeVR Series, along with its focus on delivering reliable, scalable and flexible solutions to help today's security operations meet their evolving infrastructure and interoperability requirements.

Hybrid Analog/IP Option Offers Scalability

Verint's Nextiva EdgeVR supports up to 32 IP and analog video inputs. With the availability of new hybrid analog/IP video capabilities, organizations have the flexibility to migrate to IP, while leveraging their existing analog infrastructures-providing a true IP solution that can scale to meet challenges today and in the future.

Additionally, by leveraging the integrated Nextiva EdgeVR with Verint's Nextiva S1800 Series video encoders, organizations need only one Nextiva EdgeVR with 32-channels compared with the typical two 16-channel digital video recorder system. Such structure affords security operations a more simplified and cost-effective way to manage their video systems for superior performance, efficiency and value.

Industry-Leading Interoperability

Nextiva EdgeVR also offers full integration with Verint's IP camera portfolio, as well as a wide range of IP and megapixel cameras from other leading camera manufacturers. Such interoperability provides organizations with the flexibility to choose from a wide selection of IP cameras to meet their requirements. As a result, the new Nextiva EdgeVR provides efficient deployment, easy maintenance and low total cost of ownership.

Virtual Presence Saves Time

Additionally, users can send and play pre-recorded audio messages through Nextiva EdgeVR. With this capability, organizations can monitor their video systems remotely and send appropriate audio messages in response to security scenarios-reducing the need to send security personnel onsite. With such virtual presence and audio messaging alerts, security operations can benefit from a more complete view of operations; an effective, time-saving approach to security and performance; and more real-time, actionable intelligence.

"With these enhancements, Verint continues to provide cutting-edge solutions that offer our customers an open, scalable and complete IP video solution portfolio," says Elan Moriah, president, Verint Video Intelligence Solutions and Verint Witness Actionable Solutions . "Verint has a history of developing innovative, high-quality video solutions for the security market and working with our customers to deliver technology that arms them with the intelligence and efficiencies they need to excel and take their operations to the next level."
