Software House C•CURE 800/8000 supports American Dynamics HDVR

Software House, part of Tyco Security Products, announced that its latest release of C•CURE 800/8000 access control software supports the American Dynamics HDVR, a recording platform for both analog and IP video cameras.

HDVR provides customers the benefit of deploying both analog and IP cameras on a single platform in addition to providing investment protection for those customers who want to transition to IP cameras in the future. HDVR supports a long list of standard resolution and megapixel IP cameras. Customers can easily and cost-effectively add IP camera licenses to support future expansion.

Integrating analog and IP video from American Dynamics into C•CURE 800/8000 increases security officers’ effectiveness and efficiency because they can now view both streams from one interface as opposed to toggling between different applications. HDVR video can be associated with access control events and alarms for instantaneous alarm response. At the same time, security officers can perform standard VMS functions, such as viewing live and recorded video, date/time searches, and clip exports directly from the C•CURE 800/8000 monitoring station.

“C•CURE 800/8000’s integration with HDVR is a powerful combination of access and video for both new and existing C•CURE 800/8000 installations. Many companies see the HDVR as an affordable opportunity to maintain their existing analog cameras while jumping on the IP bandwagon,” said Warren Brown, director of product management for Tyco Security Products. “This integration allows us to protect the investment that our C•CURE 800/8000 customers have already made in analog cameras, but who may want to add IP cameras to their sites going forward.”

In addition to supporting the HDVR, the latest version of C•CURE 800/8000 includes support for Microsoft Windows 7 and Server 2008 operating systems for both server and client.
