CHICAGO, IL and OTTAWA, ON, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - March Networks^®, a
global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to announce the
integration of its 8000 Series Hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs) with Sony
Electronics, Inc.'s IPELA ENGINE EX and PRO IP cameras. The March
Networks-certified integration makes it easier for 8000 Series customers and
systems integrators to deploy Sony cameras for high-quality video
surveillance. It also provides Sony customers with greater flexibility when
selecting a recording platform, allowing them to take advantage of the
exceptional reliability, centralized management and 100 percent IP camera
support provided by the 8000 Series platform.

March Networks is committed to providing customers and partners with open,
standards-based products. All 8000 Series hybrid recorders are
ONVIF-compliant, which enables them to operate seamlessly with more than 2,000
third-party cameras. In addition, the company works with best-in-class
manufacturers like Sony to ensure support for an expanded set of capabilities.
The certified integration with the Sony IP cameras ensures out-of-the-box
support for features including audio capture, H.264 video compression, motion
alarms, physical alarms and switches, and PTZ control.

"Video surveillance customers are looking for broader product choices and
deployment options," said Mark Collett, General Manager, Sony Electronics'
Security Systems Division. "This integration with March Networks' hybrid
recording systems is a direct response to that demand and is particularly
advantageous for organizations seeking more detailed, high-definition
surveillance video."

March Networks' 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs deliver the high-performance customers
need for advanced surveillance and business intelligence applications now and
in the future. Available in 32, 16, 8 and compact 4-channel models, the
recorders support multiple hybrid camera combinations as well as all-IP video
streaming, enabling organizations to transition from analog to 100 percent IP
video on the same platform. The 8000 Series employs optimized H.264 video
compression to provide detailed, HD video and noticeably sharper analog camera
images without increasing storage requirements. The recorders also maintain
the unparalleled reliability, centralized video management and scalability
that have made March Networks the No. 1 supplier of enterprise video recorders
in the Americas and a leading provider worldwide.

"We are pleased to add Sony's well respected IP surveillance cameras to our
growing list of 8000 Series integrations," said Net Payne, Chief Marketing
Officer, March Networks. "This combination of products frees customers and
partners from time-consuming - and often frustrating - deployment issues,
affirms our commitment to open standards and broadens the addressable market
for both of our companies."
