New VideoSphere VMS and 1080p Camera Latest Additions to High-Performance Portfolio from March Networks

    OTTAWA, April 1 /CNW Telbec/ - March Networks(R) (TSX:MN), a leading
provider of intelligent IP video and business analysis applications, today
announced the next release of its Video Management System (VMS) software and a
new addition to its family of high-definition IP cameras. These integrated
products are the latest enhancements to the Company's VideoSphere(TM)
Intelligent Video Management portfolio, which continues to deliver the high
performance, control and efficiency required by commercial and government
organizations in a wide range of applications.
    VideoSphere VMS Release 2.1 provides customers with the flexibility to
deploy a centralized or highly distributed IP video solution by taking
advantage of affordable, industry-standard host and storage platforms. The
powerful server software supports up to 128 IP cameras per server, as well as
analog cameras connected to VideoSphere Edge and third-party encoders. Its
support for devices utilizing advanced H.264 compression technology maximizes
bandwidth and storage efficiency, making it ideal software for customers
seeking the benefits of multi-megapixel video quality and resolution.
    Fully integrated with VideoSphere application software, VMS 2.1 enables
organizations to proactively monitor and maintain the health of their entire
IP video infrastructure, including servers, cameras and encoders, through
health alert monitoring conducted remotely over the network. In addition, the
software helps streamline user access controls. Administrators can group
devices by function, geography or customer hierarchy to simplify user
permission creation and management. They can also integrate access controls
with existing IT user authentication systems for further efficiency.
    The enhanced management capabilities of VMS 2.1 are further complemented
by the latest addition to the VideoSphere family of award-winning IP cameras.
The powerful MegaPX 1080p Camera combines multi-megapixel resolution and an HD
format with H.264 compression. The resulting savings in bandwidth and storage
allow the 1080p to stream at up to 30 frames per second and record video
independently to an integrated SDHC card for critical backup in the case of a
network outage. Its compact, lightweight design and Power over Ethernet (PoE)
support make it simple to install in almost any indoor location.
    "March Networks remains focused on delivering solutions that make it
easier and more cost-effective for organizations to manage their IP video
infrastructure and take advantage of real-time operational intelligence
optimized for critical infrastructure security," said Fabrizio Colciago, Chief
Technology Officer, March Networks. "These strategic additions to our
VideoSphere portfolio achieve that objective and I look forward to
demonstrating their capabilities to new and existing customers."
    March Networks will demonstrate its VideoSphere portfolio, including VMS
2.1 and the new MegaPX 1080p Camera, in Booth 23068 at the ISC West
International Security Conference & Exhibition, happening April 1-3 at the
Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
