Global Retailer Expands March Networks Footprint in $1 Million Deal

OTTAWA, Jan. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - March Networks® (TSX: MN), a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, announced today that a major retail customer has selected its retail solution to replace analog-based CCTV technology in select U.S. stores. The order expands the customer's existing March Networks digital video network, which currently includes more than 30,000 recording systems and software and is thought to be one of the largest video surveillance installations worldwide. March Networks will complete delivery of the solution, valued at $1 million, by January 31, 2012.

"We are pleased to have one of the world's largest corporations demonstrate continued confidence in our company and our ability to deliver on large, complex projects," said Peter Strom, President and CEO, March Networks. "We look forward to continuing to partner with this customer to meet future expansion plans and develop innovative, industry-leading retail solutions."

The new deployment is in addition to a previously announced $16 million network video recorder (NVR) order from the retailer as part of a continuing surveillance upgrade program across its U.S. stores and membership warehouses.

The retailer's March Networks solution includes powerful Visual Intelligence software and hybrid 4000 C Series NVRs. The software supports key features, such as consolidated live monitoring and archive searching, and rapid access to high-quality video evidence from any networked location. Incorporating an innovative docking station design (watch the video), the NVRs are easy to install and service - ultimately saving the retailer substantial maintenance costs. The popularity of the hybrid recorders was recently confirmed by IMS Research, which recognized March Networks as the #1 supplier of enterprise digital video recorders in the Americas.
