A recently introduced updated version of Samsung Techwin’s SmartViewer Central Management Software is able to support the company’s IP network video devices, plus its analogue cameras, domes and DVRs.
SmartViewer V4.0 is designed for CCTV systems with up to 36 cameras and lets any authorised user to view on the internet live or search for recorded video captured by connected cameras via a Samsung DVR or NVR. Users can choose to display images from up to 16 cameras at once in various split-screen modes and can save a ‘favourite’ configuration.
SmartViewer V4.0 features a device manager which automatically scans for connected IP cameras, encoders and NVRs and enables the importing/exporting of device settings. It also aids the remote updating of a device’s firmware and can thus save time and money by saving the installer a site visit. Other features include drag and drop camera selection, H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG support, a real-time event list and a 24 language display.
Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, said: “Customers will find SmartViewer V4.0 very easy to use. Our software engineers have given it the look and feel, and in many respects it is a simplified version of, our SSM (Samsung Security Manager) software which we know from customer feedback is helping users worldwide achieve maximum benefit from their video surveillance systems.”
