March Networks Doubles IP Video Capabilities in Best-Selling Hybrid Recording Platforms

OTTAWA, Sept. 19, 2011 /CNW/ - March Networks® (TSX: MN), a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is proud to introduce five new products that make it easier, faster and more cost-effective for customers to increase IP video surveillance capabilities across their operations. The products include new additions to the company's leading hybrid video recording platforms - recognized earlier this year as the best-selling enterprise DVRs in the Americas*. They also include new high-definition (HD) IP cameras, and a cloud-based mobile application designed to solve many of the issues inherent in current mobile video offerings, and integrate seamlessly into standard IT environments.

The March Networks 4332C and 4324C Hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs) double the IP video capacity of the company's 4000 C Series product line, enabling customers to expand IP camera coverage cost-effectively using existing surveillance infrastructure. The NVRs accommodate up to 16 IP cameras or Edge encoders, and maintain the same reliability and centralized video management capability proven in more than 450 banks and one of the world's largest DVR installations.

Compatible with both March Networks' Command and Visual Intelligence software, the 4332C and 4324C systems also deliver enhanced live monitoring and investigation in a single software interface. Additional features include expanded third-party IP camera and access control integrations, and optional embedded video analytics. The new NVRs share the same innovative docking station architecture (watch the video) that makes all March Networks 4000 C Series hybrid recorders easy to install and maintain.

March Networks' new MegaPX 5 MP and MegaPX WDR enhance the company's line of HD IP video cameras. These fixed IP cameras combine exceptional image quality with real-time H.264 video compression for optimal bandwidth and storage efficiency. The MegaPX 5 MP's powerful digital zoom and ultra-wide field-of-view make it ideal for customers requiring precise image detail and extensive coverage. The MegaPX WDR ensures clear image capture in challenging lighting conditions - such as a retail bank branch where large windows can create silhouettes - through its combination of three megapixel resolution and wide dynamic range. Both cameras work seamlessly with the company's existing and new NVRs, as well as in a March Networks' Command all-IP video environment. They are also ONVIF-compliant for flexible, third-party integration.

March Networks Command Mobile is a web-based mobile application that installs in minutes to provide customers with a view into their business from any location, at any time using the hand-held devices they already own. The software works with any mobile device, including iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Android devices. Developed to eliminate the complexities and extra costs found with competitive mobile video applications, Command Mobile runs reliably and securely over existing IT networks without requiring additional software installations, specific configurations, network policies or dedicated hardware. Video is encrypted and protected through authentication, while virtualized servers ensure uninterrupted service. Customers can choose how many video channels they need to access, making Command Mobile an attractive application for businesses with a few or a few thousand locations.

"These new products allow organizations to optimize their IP video capabilities, while maintaining the reliability, scalability and exceptional video management our customers have come to expect from March Networks," said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. "We are excited about expanding our video portfolio with these innovative products, which serve as a strong foundation for our advanced software applications and analytics that bring business value to our customers worldwide."

March Networks will demonstrate its complete IP video solutions portfolio in Booth 569 at the 57th annual ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits, September 19-21, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Visit www.marchnetworks.com/asis to learn more.
