March Networks Integrates Panasonic IP Cameras with its Command VMS
March Networks, a provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to announce that its Command Video Management System (VMS) software is fully integrated with Panasonic’s IP video cameras. The certification provides systems integrators and customers with faster, more simplified system deployment and the flexibility needed to support diverse security requirements, without sacrificing existing technology investments.
Integrating its standards-based Command VMS with best-in-class security products and systems is a priority for March Networks. The proven certifications reduce installation time and costs, and make it easier for organizations to adopt a March Networks Command solution, complete with a full-featured, browser-based, software client. The integration with Panasonic’s ver1.33 API cameras incorporates features including audio capture, H.264, M-JPEG video compression, motion detection, logical alarms and robust I/O and PTZ control.
“The integration with March Networks’ Command video management software further broadens the accessibility of our advanced IP cameras by providing a proven, cost-effective IP video solution,” said National Category Manager, Security and Mobile Video Solutions for Panasonic, Charlie Hare. “As a result, existing customers and partners benefit from the capabilities the combined solution offers and the flexibility to address a wide variety of security requirements.”
Command is one of the only VMS solutions able to support complete surveillance system configuration and administration – in addition to live and archived video access – via its browser-based, client interface. Built with an emphasis on efficiency and user-focused design, it delivers key features including mass configuration, alarm monitoring and management, real-time alerting with convenient handling and acknowledgment procedures, and one-click access to associated camera views and alarm playback.
Centralized search and investigation applications developed specifically for financial institutions are also available in Command, making the software especially powerful for banks seeking to reduce fraudulent losses across their organization. Combined with efficient Visual Finder and Thumbnail Search technologies, it is the ideal platform to speed investigations and gather strong evidence for authorities.
“This certified integration with Panasonic offers our mutual customers and partners an exceptional IP video solution that’s cost-effective to deploy and manage,” said Net Payne, chief marketing officer, March Networks. “We remain committed to open, standards-based systems and working with leaders, such as Panasonic, to ensure the broadest choice and best-in-class options for our customers worldwide.”
