March Networks Introduces Free IP VMS

March Networks, global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, announced the introduction Command Lite -- a free, entry-level version of its enterprise-class Command video management system (VMS).

The software supports up to six video channels and seven days of storage, making it an ideal surveillance solution for businesses with limited camera and retention requirements, as well as organizations ready to evaluate an IP VMS solution in real-world environments. Command Lite installs in minutes, is easy to use, and incorporates the latest time-saving capabilities available with release 1.3 of the Command platform.

As with all March Networks Command software, Command Lite is compatible with more than 300 certified third-party cameras, hundreds of ONVIF-compliant edge devices and March Networks IP cameras, allowing it to be quickly deployed using existing surveillance infrastructure. A one-click device discovery tool identifies and adds all locally networked cameras to speed setup.

In addition, there are no client applications to download. The Command web-based user interface supports all system configuration, management and daily operations. It works with both Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems and can be accessed with all leading web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, to ensure a rapid and straightforward installation. The flexible interface is easily tailored to display or hide different functions for specific user groups, which increases user efficiency and reducing training times for enterprise-class deployments.

Command Lite also provides new features introduced in Command 1.3 to help organizations save time operating and administering the VMS. Archive thumbnails and a Visual Finder timeline allow users to search through recorded video quickly without a specific date or time, and refine searches easily with just a few mouse clicks. The software's innovative health inbox helps administrators ensure the system is always performing optimally, while its Device Page offers detailed information on the data being received, recorded and streamed to clients on a camera-by-camera basis.

"We are pleased to offer many of the core capabilities of our Command video management platform in this convenient and freely downloadable solution," said Net Payne, chief marketing oficer, March Networks. "Command Lite gives organizations and systems integrators the opportunity to discover the flexibility and ease-of-use of our VMS for themselves, and makes it easy for them to scale to a full-featured Command offering when they are ready."

Upgrades from Command Lite to Command Professional or Enterprise are seamless. No reconfiguration is needed and all previously archived video is maintained.
