March Networks Launches Intelligent Video Management Solution

    VideoSphere Maximizes ROI in Smart Migration to All-IP Video

    OTTAWA, April 1 /CNW Telbec/ - March Networks(TM) (TSX:MN; AIM:MNW), a
leading provider of intelligent IP video and business analysis applications,
today launched VideoSphere(TM) - a next-generation video management solution
that enables organizations to maximize investments in existing video
infrastructure as they make the transition to all-IP video. With VideoSphere,
customers benefit from common management software that unifies IP and analog
environments in an end-to-end solution.
    The VideoSphere portfolio includes integrated video and system management
software, analytic applications and best-in-class March Networks IP cameras,
encoders and networked video recorders. VideoSphere's highly flexible
architecture meets the diverse requirements of enterprise-class organizations
regardless of their position on the technology adoption curve.
    "While there is no question that IP video deployments will eventually
dominate the security industry, that transition is clearly not going to happen
overnight," said Alastair Hayfield, Research Analyst, IMS Research. "Although
we expect the world market for networked video surveillance systems to grow by
almost 40 percent CAGR through to 2011, our research also indicates that there
remains a substantial installed base of legacy systems, many of which will
transition to IP over time. By 2011, we expect that the total market for new
networked video surveillance systems will be worth U.S. $4 billion and that
sales of digital video recorder systems will represent an additional U.S.
$3 billion annually as end users migrate their analog camera technologies to
network-based applications."
    Organizations ready for an all-IP infrastructure can install VideoSphere
video management software on industry-standard host and storage servers and
select from a portfolio of award-winning IP cameras to stream video directly
onto their network. Alternatively, VideoSphere's family of hybrid recording
platforms enables organizations to enhance existing video infrastructure
capabilities with advanced analytic applications and standard and megapixel IP

    The VideoSphere solution comprises:

      - Video management software for installation on customers' own
        industry-standard IT servers
      - A growing family of IP cameras, video encoders and networked
        recorders to meet customer needs on a facility-by-facility basis
      - Intelligent video and data analytics to improve the relevance of
        captured video, and to integrate it effectively with operational data
      - Unifying management and reporting tools for centralized system
        administration, no matter how large the organization
      - Backwards compatibility with existing March Networks enterprise video
      - Integration with leading third-party video applications and
        components to provide a more comprehensive surveillance and security

    "With nearly 70,000 systems in service and some of the world's largest
video deployments, March Networks has a rich heritage of working with leading
organizations across the financial, retail, transportation and other
high-growth sectors," said Peter Strom, President and CEO, March Networks. "We
leveraged this experience in designing the VideoSphere solution to provide our
customers with best-in-class functionality today and the flexibility they need
to adopt new technologies at their own pace as part of a clear and long-term
migration path."
    March Networks will demonstrate VideoSphere in Booth 12094 at the ISC
West International Security Conference and Exposition, April 2-4 at the Sands
Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, and in Booth 2301 at Interop
Las Vegas, April 27-May 2 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
