September 24 , 2013 — March Networks, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to announce the integration of its 8000 Series Hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs) with Sony Electronics, Inc.’s IPELA ENGINE EX and PRO IP cameras. The March Networks-certified integration makes it easier for 8000 Series customers and systems integrators to deploy Sony cameras for high-quality video surveillance. It also provides Sony customers with greater flexibility when selecting a recording platform, allowing them to take advantage of the exceptional reliability, centralized management and 100 percent IP camera support provided by the 8000 Series platform.
March Networks is committed to providing customers and partners with open, standards-based products. All 8000 Series hybrid recorders are ONVIF-compliant, which enables them to operate seamlessly with more than 2,000 third-party cameras. In addition, the company works with best-in-class manufacturers like Sony to ensure support for an expanded set of capabilities. The certified integration with the Sony IP cameras ensures out-of-the-box support for features including audio capture, H.264 video compression, motion alarms, physical alarms and switches, and PTZ control.
“Video surveillance customers are looking for broader product choices and deployment options,” said Mark Collett, General Manager, Sony Electronics’ Security Systems Division. “This integration with March Networks’ hybrid recording systems is a direct response to that demand and is particularly advantageous for organizations seeking more detailed, high-definition surveillance video.”
March Networks’ 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs deliver the high-performance customers need for advanced surveillance and business intelligence applications now and in the future. Available in 32, 16, 8 and compact 4-channel models, the recorders support multiple hybrid camera combinations as well as all-IP video streaming, enabling organizations to transition from analog to 100 percent IP video on the same platform. The 8000 Series employs optimized H.264 video compression to provide detailed, HD video and noticeably sharper analog camera images without increasing storage requirements. The recorders also maintain the unparalleled reliability, centralized video management and scalability that have made March Networks the No. 1 supplier of enterprise video recorders in the Americas and a leading provider worldwide.
“We are pleased to add Sony’s well respected IP surveillance cameras to our growing list of 8000 Series integrations,” said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. “This combination of products frees customers and partners from time-consuming – and often frustrating – deployment issues, affirms our commitment to open standards and broadens the addressable market for both of our companies.”
