Tyco Security Products has introduced the 4.8.1 version of American Dynamics victor Video Management System (VMS) and VideoEdge intelligent network video recorders (NVR). The developers say this includes new features to simplify administration and speed security investigations.
The newest version of victor lets video management system operators schedule video clip retrieval for a later time during off-peak network usage hours. That’s to aid bandwidth management. Also, incident builder allows users to correlate video evidence for an event presentation. To reduce event investigation time, operators and guards now can create bookmarks and notes when something of interest has been observed. Notes, images and other documents can be added to a file, with clips stitched together as video evidence of an event. A user can check authenticity of the exported evidence presentation with the new digital authentication capability, providing a way to prove secure evidence for law enforcement.
With the new Unified version of victor, administrators can now update user roles and privileges for Software House C•CURE 9000 management systems including the C•CURE 9000 monitoring station, administration workstation and C•CURE Go mobile app. This synchronisation consolidates an operator’s set up, saving time and unifying video security and access control. This release also offers operators the option to import fully functional C•CURE 9000 maps into victor. Security operators can lock and unlock the door or open a door with a swipe and show interface directly from the victor map.
For retail uses, victor 4.8.1 enhances the point-of-sales display to show receipt data alongside the corresponding video for instant visual verification and simplified monitoring of fraud and theft.
Stuart Bettle, Video Product Marketing Manager, EMEA, Tyco Security Products, said: “The new features offer even greater speed and efficiency to improve the security user experience. These latest enhancements to the powerful victor platform provide an industry-leading suite of enterprise-class investigation and productivity tools. The intuitive interface is designed to maximise operator time and resources in that mission-critical control room environment.”
