March Networks announces integration with Bosch IP cameras

Company’s Command video management software now compatible with Bosch cams


OTTAWA, ONTARIO, December 4, 2012 – March Networks, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to announce that its Command video management system (VMS) software is fully integrated with the Bosch line of advanced video surveillance cameras. The certified integration provides March Networks Command systems integrators and customers with additional flexibility when selecting the most suitable solution for their needs. It simplifies and speeds deployments, while enabling organizations to maximize existing technology investments.

March Networks is committed to pre-integrating its open Command VMS with best-in-class security products and systems. This newest integration with Bosch's 5.50 API IP cameras ensures out-of-the-box support for features including audio capture, H.264 and M-JPEG video compression, motion detection, physical alarms and robust I/O and PTZ control.

“We are pleased that March Networks has completed the implementation of our latest firmware, which enables their partners and customers to transparently select any of our latest cameras,” said Rudolf Spielberger, Head of Bosch’s Integration Partner Program. “That includes a broad range of SD and HD cameras for everyday needs from our Advantage Line range, and specialized cameras such as the Autodome 800 HD camera and the new Dinion HDR camera with unprecedented light sensitivity.”

The certified integration makes it even easier for existing Bosch IP camera customers to adopt and benefit from the capabilities of March Networks Command. The software is one of the only VMS solutions able to support complete surveillance system configuration and administration – in addition to live and archived video access – via a browser-based client interface. Built with an emphasis on efficiency and user-focused design, Command delivers key features including mass configuration, alarm monitoring and management, real-time alerting with handling and acknowledgment procedures, and one-click access to associated camera views and alarm playback. A time-saving text overlay capability allows organizations to configure, view and export superimposed retail point-of-sale, license plate or other text data onto associated video to speed investigations and improve overall operational awareness.

“This collaboration offers both Bosch and March Networks customers a superior, end-to-end solution that’s easy to deploy and manage,” said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. “It affirms our commitment to open, standards-based systems and broadens the addressable markets for our award-winning Command VMS.”
