Vicon's SurveyorVFT Camera Integrates with Verint
Nextiva Video Management Software
Hauppauge and Melville, N.Y., July 15, 2008 – Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of video surveillance systems, and Verint Systems Inc. today announced that Vicon® has integrated its SurveyorVFT camera with Verint’s Nextiva® IP video platform, launching a new IP camera called the Nextiva S2800e. The Nextiva S2800e combines industry-leading Verint encoding technology with the feature-rich Vicon SurveyorVFT camera dome to deliver a high-performance IP PTZ camera with superior imagery, lower network bandwidth utilization, and full integration with the Nextiva video management portfolio.
“We have witnessed the preference for SurveyorVFT domes in demanding, high-profile installations for many years, both in cases where our own ViconNet software is in use, as well as in situations where other manufacturers’ software is controlling the system. We are pleased that our new partnership with Verint will make our domes available to the growing sector of the marketplace that is requiring direct IP connectivity from their cameras and, as in this case, working in an open platform environment,” said Bret McGowan, Vicon’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Vicon’s SurveyorVFT domes are recognized industry-wide as best-in-class for their performance, reliability and extensive feature set. They are available with optical zoom levels of up to 35x and are offered with a wide range of camera types, housing and mounting options to meet almost any installation and environmental requirements. By integrating Vicon’s SurveyorVFT dome camera with Verint encoding technology, users can view images at high resolution while storing them at lower resolution, helping enhance image clarity and lower use of valuable bandwidth and storage resources.
“We are pleased to add Vicon’s SurveyorVFT dome camera into the line of IP cameras that we offer today,” said Jim Clark, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Verint Video Intelligence Solutions. “Verint technology integrated with Vicon’s SurveyorVFT dome cameras will help provide enhanced video compression technology, superior image quality and reduced total cost of ownership.”
