Johnson Controls announced the release of the newest version of Tyco victor video management and VideoEdge NVR systems designed to provide users with mission-critical, enterprise-level solutions, while also furthering the solution’s cyber position and evolving the unification between victor/VideoEdge and Tyco Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management platform.
The release of version 5.4 offers dynamic features to flexibly support hundreds of cameras, empower facial biometrics, provide video media encryption, and improve management and organization of live and recorded video, including in C•CURE Unified environments.
“By leveraging the enhanced feature set in the latest version of the victor and VideoEdge solution, users can take an even more proactive approach to security, and easily grow the system as their video, facial biometric and analytics needs increase,” said Jammy DeSousa, senior product manager, American Dynamics, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls.
Version 5.4 of victor and VideoEdge further strengthens existing cybersecurity measures to address the issue of file tampering and remote and local sabotage by encrypting the media stored on the NVRs. Other new functionalities include enhanced device addition, which adds flexibility and cuts down on time spent adding or editing cameras connected to the NVRs; integrity reports and audits for missing or modified media; and parallel recording of two video streams, providing a lower resolution option for fast download.
For victor and C•CURE Unified systems, improved event configuration and robustness, area controls support, and C•CURE event editing help streamline important monitoring functions. Area controls are now unified, adding in the ability for valuable video context for remote visibility of area management.
With updated facial biometrics, this release offers better runtime performance, accuracy, and the ability to simplify maintenance and bulk enrollment across the VMS with the addition of victor Identity Manager and the facial biometric engine update. Finally, organizing clips, video, and events across the enterprise has never been easier with video enhancements to master application server capabilities.
