GE has released SymSecure, new digital video management software that provides a way to manage, configure and control video security from any location at any time, according to the company. The system uses new IP-networking technology and MPEG-4 products to allow users to use legacy analog equipment in the IP environment.
The system is designed with public safety facilities in mind and can also be used at schools, corporations, transportation facilities and retail locations. The software is easy to install and configure, according to GE, and it automatically detects cameras on a network and allows users to instantly control them with simple configuration. The system uses Windows point-and-click technology, which eliminates the need to learn an entirely new system.
The software’s virtual matrix capability can be used to route digital video streams to where they are needed to respond to alarms and the system can be customized to its environment. Its open architecture allows for integration with access control and other building control systems.
