BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- VideoIQ, the leader in video surveillance innovation, today announced the availability of version 3.2 of its advanced video management system (VMS), VideoIQ VIEW™, along with a firmware upgrade for the complete line of VideoIQ iCVR cameras and encoders. This latest version introduces holiday rule schedules, automatic alarm acknowledgement, batch alarm acknowledgement and a customizable alarm view playback window.
VideoIQ VIEW is an advanced VMS with unique capabilities based on real-time video analytics, high-definition resolution and distributed storage. VideoIQ VIEW allows operators to effectively and efficiently monitor hundreds of high-definition and standard resolution cameras by automatically alerting individuals to potential threats, delivering rapid intelligent search for incidents, object types and particular individuals, while managing a network of hundreds of cameras and encoders with embedded storage.
The VideoIQ iCVR line of cameras and encoders deliver real-time threat detection while eliminating the need for external third party Network Video Recorders (NVR) or Digital Video Recorders (DVR), dramatically simplifying system complexity and costs while reducing bandwidth consumption by more than 90 percent. And with zero calibration adaptive analytics, customers achieve the greatest accuracy and lowest false alarm rate in the industry while eliminating the need to manually calibrate the system over the lifetime of the device – further reducing system costs and complexity.
This latest release of VideoIQ VIEW and iCVR firmware expands upon previous versions and now includes:
- Holiday rule schedules –Extended rule calendars now include holidays, allowing users to simplify rule configuration by specifying rules that will be automatically activated or deactivated during holiday periods.
- Automatic alarm acknowledgement – Operators now have the ability to automatically acknowledge alarms when viewing an alarm clip. When selected during configuration, this enhancement speeds up the acknowledgment process for operators, allowing them to process additional alarms even faster than before.
- Batch alarm acknowledgement – Operators can now select multiple alarms from the alarm view screen and acknowledge an entire batch, making it easier to manage a sequence of alarms that might have been generated from a single location.
- Customizable alarm view playback window – Operators can customize the alarm view playback window, including video window resizing, the ability to undock the windows from the main alarm pane, the addition of IQTrack™ and Full Screen buttons, and the ability to collapse the Live Video view on-demand.
"At VideoIQ, we make a point of being responsive to our integrator, partner and end-user needs," said Ed Bednarcik, president and CEO of VideoIQ. "VIEW 3.2 delivers four new features which enhance operator usability and flexibility, further simplifying end-user interaction with our solution, making them more efficient and effective."
VideoIQ VIEW 3.2 and iCVR firmware upgrades are available immediately.
