March Networks, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, has launched the March Networks Command Center, an enterprise-class software solution. The solution provides organizations with “easy-to-use” surveillance video display and control, as well as intelligent alarm management and escalation.
Integrated with March Networks’ Command Enterprise video management software, high-performance video records and IP cameras, the Command Center delivers key features that support efficient, more accurate alarm and event handling, the company says.
The features include convenient process guidance, which uses a series of built-in questions and instructions to guide operators in processing or directing an alarm, and intelligent workflows that can automatically handle designated alarms behind the scenes, without direct operator intervention. An alarm resolution form also provides a consistent user interface for resolving alarms and capturing operators’ notes.
All actions are logged in the Command Center system, enabling organizations to conduct quick, comprehensive searches on alarm history and reports on individual alarm entries, says March Networks.
The Command Center also includes a drag-and-drop feature to allow operators to quickly ‘move’ the cameras they want displayed onto their video wall. The software also supports multilayered maps so operators can virtually move floor-to-floor through their facilities and quickly display detailed plans for any room.
Running on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) servers and workstations, the Command Center supports multiple display monitors from a single workstation, and can decode up to 32 video streams per display. It decodes all types of standard codecs (including H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG) on a single matrix view, and can be expanded by adding new workstations when new display monitors are needed.
March Networks will demonstrate its new Command Center solution along with its complete intelligent IP video portfolio in Booth 4522 at the ASIS International 2017 Expo, September 26-28, in Dallas, Texas.
