    OTTAWA, Aug. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - March Networks(R) (TSX:MN), a leading
provider of intelligent IP video and business analysis applications, announced
today that one of Europe's largest financial institutions has selected the
Company's VideoSphere(TM) open-platform Video Management System (VMS) software
and more than 2,000 CamPX and MegaPX IP cameras for advanced security and

    The deal, worth approximately CAD $1.5 million, follows previous
deployments of March Networks hybrid recording platforms in several hundred of
the bank's retail branches. It also includes powerful VideoSphere Enterprise
Service Manager software, which will be installed in the bank's security
command center to enable extensive remote management and resource optimization
    In addition, the financial institution will use VideoSphere intelligent
video analytics to immediately detect and monitor unusual activity, such as a
person loitering in an ATM vestibule or entering a secure area without
authorization. The high-definition MegaPX IP cameras, complete with SDHC
cards, will provide local storage and enhanced redundancy.
    With thousands of retail banking branches located throughout much of
Central and Eastern Europe, the financial institution selected the VideoSphere
solution for its exceptional performance and scalability - features that are
crucial to the effective management of multiple security applications across
the highly-distributed organization.

hundreds, or thousands, of corporate and retail banking sites," said Peter
Strom, President and CEO, March Networks. "With more than a decade of
