OTTAWA, April 6 /CNW/ - March Networks® (TSX: MN), a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is
pleased to announce the launch of its Command video management platform. The scalable software provides customers with a sophisticated,
web-based interface that is easy to use and highly customizable.
Command fits easily into existing Information Technology (IT)
infrastructure to ensure rapid installation and management. It also
enables customers to select from hundreds of IP surveillance cameras
and encoders through its support for ONVIF devices and direct
integrations with leading surveillance products.
A full member of ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) since 2008, March Networks
designed Command and all of its next-generation IP cameras, encoders
and hybrid recorders to meet the industry standard, ensuring
interoperability with other ONVIF-compliant products. In addition, the
Command software platform delivers further capabilities when used as
part of a complete March Networks solution, including total fail-safe
management with the company's innovative Shadow Archiving™ technology.
The intuitive Command interface is one of the industry's only clients
able to run on both Windows® and Mac® operating systems, as well as multiple browsers including Internet
Explorer®, Safari®, FireFox® and Chrome™. The award-winning software is also easily tailored, allowing an
organization to provide its distinct user groups with only the features
they require, which simplifies training and improves user efficiency.
To accommodate different customer environments, Command comes in two
versions with the same user interface, powerful feature set and the
ability to scale as required. Command Professional supports up to 128 cameras and is ideal for single-server environments.
Command Enterprise can support as many as 128,000 cameras with multiple servers, and can
also manage March Networks' new 7532 Hybrid NVR as well as existing 4000 C Series NVR installations.
Command software runs on any commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) server or
in a virtualized environment, reducing capital expenditures and
allowing it to be managed similarly to other corporate applications. It
supports LDAP/Active Directory® for quick user setup and the efficient administration of security
policies, passwords, access control, and group policy configuration.
Command also delivers mass configuration and management capabilities
that lower installation and maintenance costs significantly. Further,
with Command's unique server-to-server gateway technology, customers
can reduce WAN bandwidth traffic by as much as 90 percent.
From its inception, Command has been designed to serve as a true
software platform able to integrate seamlessly with business and
third-party applications that expand the power and functionality of
video surveillance. Applications such as access control, mass
notification and license plate recognition are currently available, as
are a range of intelligent video analytics from March Networks analytics portfolio. The company will continue to
expand the Command solution platform with additional third-party
plug-ins and its own industry-specific applications.
"Command reflects our company's absolute commitment to delivering
comprehensive IP video products that are open, easy to manage, and
support both security and IT industry standards, as well as innovative,
value-added applications," said Fabrizio Colciago, Chief Technology
Officer, March Networks. "We look forward to demonstrating the many
strengths of Command to security and IT decision-makers as they shape
the future direction of their IP video infrastructure."
March Networks will demonstrate its Command video management platform
integrated with the company's high-definition IP cameras, its new 7532
Hybrid NVR and its mass notification application in Booth 23068 at the
ISC West International Security Conference and Exposition, April 6 to
8, at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. For more
