Vicon Releases ViconNet Rev 3.0 Digital Video Management System

Newest version of software adds a mapping GUI, increases resolution to 4CIF, allows bandwidth management


Vicon Industries has introduced a new revision to its ViconNet software. Rev 3.0 provides a number of improvements to its already feature-packed ViconNet platform.

ViconNet's Rev 3.0 unveils the true power of a Digital Management System that was designed to support DVR and IP video solutions. The VN1000 is a software solution that loads onto common PC and server platforms running Windows XP and turns your computer into an NVR with complete video management capabilities. This solution is also made available in a pre-configured PC that includes extended storage options and RAID compatibility (model VN5000 series).

Rev 3.0 features include a flexible Geographic User Interface (MAP GUI) used to overlay camera icons for intuitive physical positioning for easier selection and control of fixed and PTZ cameras. Also, future upgrades will be possible over the network from remote sites.

Resolution with Rev 3.0 increases to 4 CIF (720 x 488, NTSC; 864 x 586, PAL). Additionally, Rev 3.0 supports an optional 16 x 4 matrix output, providing a quad display of local inputs, and 8 relay alarm outputs. With Rev 3.0, the user can use a low bandwidth button to select a lower bandwidth for slower networks and use the audio quality setup to select different audio recording qualities to save storage space.

Integration has become a standard requirement among video systems and ViconNet Rev 3.0 supports that need with integration to Hirsch and Lenel Card Access and ObjectVideo's VEW Video Analytics System.
