Tyco’s ‘victor’ VMS brings analogue and IP together
With victor, security officers gain use of both existing analogue cameras and new IP cameras in a single,software client. VideoEdge version 4.0, an IT-friendly NVR solution gives security directors the IP video recording capabilities they need. New IP cameras, encoders, and affordable iSCSi /Fiber storage solutions round out the IP video offering from American Dynamics.
According to the company, victor unifies security management, providing front-desk security officers with one set of tools to view, search and export video from both Intellex DVRs and VideoEdge NVRs. Intellex customers will just add new VideoEdge NVRs and mega-pixel IP cameras to existing security systems.
“This combined launch gives new and existing Intellex DVR customers everything they need to jump into IP Video or to transition from analogue to IP security video at their own pace,” said Warren Brown, Director of product management.
Victor offers instant ‘layout switching’ across four monitors to quickly react to situations. Embedded policy management enables security directors to manage access to cameras, video export and other features by user. victor also remembers users’ favorite cameras and views and brings them up whether they are accessing the system on their home laptop or in the control room.
victor combines with Intellex and the new VideoEdge v4.0 to find and export incident video with instant Smart Search, which delivers fast searches of recorded video on IP and analogue cameras in the same interface.
In addition to built-in Smart Search analytics, the new VideoEdge v4.0 delivers H.264 recording, 400 Mbits per second recording capacity, frame-by-frame instant playback and audio on every camera channel. As an open-platform, high-performance NVR, VideoEdge v4.0 keeps IT Directors happy with a locked down, Linux kernel-based software approach.
