Verint introduces packaged IP video offerings

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 2, 2008 – Verint Systems Inc., today announced the availability of Nextiva Packaged IP Video solutions, three offerings that bundle together all the hardware, software and instructional knowledge required to deploy a networked video system. The packages are part of Verint’s new IP Video Made Easy initiative which also includes a series of new Training and Certification programs.

"The benefits of IP video technology are compelling but there is still a significant installed base of analog surveillance systems in the market today," said Jim Clark, senior vice president and general manager of Verint Video Intelligence Solutions.

“This new offering will help organizations leverage their existing investments in security infrastructure, while migrating to IP technology at a pace that matches their unique requirements. IP Video Made Easy combines all the elements that our customers and channel partners need for successful adoption of networked video solutions, regardless of their environment."

Turnkey Nextiva IP Video Packages A key component of the IP Video Made Easy initiative are the new Nextiva packaged solutions that address customer needs across the IP adoption continuum – whether a security infrastructure is all analog, all IP or a combination of the two. Each package contains all required hardware, software, cables and instructions to simplify specification, installation, support and operation and is designed to streamline sourcing for integrators and enable end users to reap the benefits of an intuitive IP video solution.

The Nextiva IP Video Packages include:

Nextiva EZ - a 36-channel "out-of-the-box" IP video starter kit designed for scalable deployments in retail, branch office, banking, education and small campus environments

Nextiva Basic - a 64-channel, entry-level enterprise IP video solution designed for mid-size retail, campus, critical infrastructure and government environments

Nextiva Foundation - a comprehensive, scalable, enterprise-class system supporting up to 100-channels of IP video, designed for deployment in mass transit, critical infrastructure, municipalities and federal and military environments

“As the market leader in IP video, Verint continues to deliver innovative solutions to address the market’s most important security objectives,” said David Bunzel, president of industry research firm, Santa Clara Consulting. “These new Nextiva turnkey packages simplify the adoption of IP video and enable more customers to rapidly and affordably experience its powerful benefits.”

Verint Training and Certification Programs

In support of IP Video Made Easy, Verint is also introducing a series of new training resources and technology certification programs, enabling integration and installation partners to grow existing business and address new revenue streams stemming from IP-based technology. These programs focus on expertise and best practices derived from Verint's extensive experience with IP video deployments and will enable channel partners to more effectively address end user challenges related to convergence. Among the initial programs introduced is the Verint Wireless Certification. The program familiarizes channel partners with Verint’s wireless solutions and provides hands-on deployment experience in multiple environments. Certified integrators will be able to better propose wireless solutions to potential customers, efficiently configure and install wireless video equipment, and resolve potential deployment issues unique to wireless technology.

"As a systems integrator certified in the Verint solution set, we are excited about this new initiative and its potential benefits for our customers," said Mark Moscinski, vice president of Safety and Security at SD·I (System Development·Integration, LLC). "IP Video Made Easy will give us the opportunity to more effectively guide customers through each phase of IP video technology adoption."
