American Dynamics takes IP Video to next level with version 4.1 of victor unified video management system

Orlando, Florida - American Dynamics, part of Tyco Security Products, today announced the latest version of the victor unified video management system.

victor v4.1 makes it fast and easy for airports, universities, hospitals and other large sites to display, manage and prioritize video and events with its Command Center.  Control room operators can easily manage hundreds of cameras across tens of monitors, control where event video will display and quickly and easily share critical video or event information with other security personnel on site or anywhere on the network.  This “Push” capability works with IP or analog cameras, video clips, event information – virtually anything an operator has on their screen can be “pushed” to any other operator on the system.

“When we looked at the critical requirements of high security facilities, the victor Command Center feature was right at the top,” said Dave Jackson, senior product manager for American Dynamics. “Getting a video of someone breaking into a facility is only useful if the security personnel closest to that event know about it.  This “push” feature increases security exponentially by allowing operators to get the video in front of the right person immediately…even if that person isn’t in the same building.”

victor v4.1 also makes it easier and faster to find events in weeks of recorded video with its SmartSearch and enhanced “Investigator Mode”.  With SmartSearch, security officers can search days or weeks of video in seconds to easily find the last person who entered a restricted area, or when a laptop or other object was moved.  Once an event is identified, Investigator Mode then simplifies the process of finding video on related cameras, time-synchronizing the view and exporting video from all related cameras.  New, easy-to-use clip export and still image capture tools in victor produce high-resolution still images and videos that security personnel can use both internally/externally and with law enforcement.

“With each release of victor and VideoEdge, we listen carefully to our customers to include the most vital business-enabling requirements,” continued Jackson. “This release builds a strong bridge to the wider American Dynamics community with integration with our HDVR hybrid recorder and our analog matrix switcher system to enable the majority of our customers to enjoy one unified video management experience.”

The victor unified video management system is available through American Dynamics worldwide network of authorized integrators.
