March Networks solutions wins three awards at Sicurezza 2010

MILAN, ITALY, November 22, 2010 –– March Networks, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to announce that its new March Networks Command software and VideoSphere Edge 1 MicroEncoder have captured a total of four Security & Safety awards for outstanding innovation, performance and usability at the Sicurezza 2010 conference and exhibition.

Command won three awards at the show held last week in Milan, including an Innovation Award, a Friendly Product Award and a Top Selection Award, which recognizes the best overall new products from hundreds of submissions. The company’s Edge 1 MicroEncoder was also recognized with an Innovation Award.

"We are honored to receive these awards, which confirm our industry leadership and commitment to delivering innovative IP video products and solutions that drive ROI, are user-friendly and can be efficiently managed across a few or thousands of remote locations," said Fabrizio Colciago, Chief Technology Officer, March Networks.

March Networks Command is a comprehensive video surveillance solution that enables organizations to configure and manage their video devices from any location using a single, web-based interface. The software can scale to support as many as 128,000 surveillance cameras, and delivers mass configuration and management capabilities that lower installation and maintenance costs significantly. It incorporates a remote video gateway technology to reduce video streaming over a corporate WAN – a key advantage for large, multi-site organizations. Recognized with a Friendly Product award, Command’s intuitive user interface provides customers with well-defined work areas and streamlined navigation that eliminates task complexity.

The Edge 1 MicroEncoder is a single-channel encoder that enables organizations to leverage existing analog camera investments and transition cost-effectively to all IP video networking. It can record video in parallel to an optional, internal microSD High Capacity (SDHC) card or a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device to provide redundant recording, while its compact size makes it ideal for installation in camera housings or outdoor power supply cabinets.

Both award-winning products are ONVIF compliant and leverage 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.
