Vicon's First Valerus VMS System Shipped and Installed


Hauppauge, NY |  January 12, 2017: Vicon Industries, Inc. (VII: NYSE-MKT) (“Vicon”), trusted designer and producer of video security systems and high-performance IP cameras, announced that the first order for their new Valerus VMS has shipped and was installed yesterday. With excitement building over this unique solution, many more systems have been ordered and specified in its first week on the market.

A  school in Indiana had an immediate need for an easy-to-use video solution and Valerus was able to meet all of their expectations. In fact, they were so impressed after the initial demo, they also purchased a three-year upgrade protection plan (UPP) to capture all the new features scheduled to be released this year. This new system started with a 12TB Valerus Recording Server, Valerus PRO license for 22 cameras and the UPP.

The initial draw to Valerus was the ease of configuration and deployment and the fact that it would make it easy for their IT department, since there are no PC software applications to install and maintain.  The thin-client HTML webpage makes video accessible from any computer,  and the single license reduces deployment time and frustration as the system grows.

“We are excited to have completed the first Valerus order following the first week of our announcement, which reflects our commitment to being prepared for the demand of our revolutionary software. Feedback from across the country has been extremely positive and we look forward to showing our customers the advanced simplicity of our new software,” says Bret McGowan, Vicon Sr. VP Sales and Marketing.
