G4S Technology Enters into Technology Partnership with Salient Systems, Inc
Jun 15 15
G4S Technology has entered into a technology partnership with Salient Systems, Inc. and will offer Salient’s CompleteView Video Management System and TouchView Mobile Video Apps under the Symmetry™ brand. The Symmetry Security Management platform brings together Identity Management, Access Control, Alarm Management, and Video Management combined with Situational Awareness. Joining the Symmetry platform is the set of video solutions to be known as Symmetry CompleteView Video Management System and Symmetry TouchView Mobile apps. Symmetry CompleteView Video Management System and Symmetry TouchView Mobile apps provide an additional set of video solutions to complement and build on existing Symmetry Video products, meeting the diverse needs of video customers through scalability from entry level to enterprise solutions, standalone or integrated, and adding the flexibility of a mobile solution. Designed for flexibility, Symmetry CompleteView offers unlimited scalability to manage small to enterprise-class video security challenges. Known for its ease of use, Symmetry CompleteView offers a consistent user interface, and network friendly features like Dynamic Resolution Scaling and Smart Search, which makes it fast and easy to locate video recordings. With a true bi-directional interface to Symmetry Access Control, alarms and events can trigger recordings on cameras and recordings can be automatically associated with access control events. Symmetry CompleteView uses Dynamic Resolution Scaling to manage bandwidth consumption. Video resolution is automatically scaled at the server before transmitting to client machines, and is customized to fit the video display requested by the client. When video is displayed at a larger size, it is automatically streamed at the higher resolution for high quality display. The resolution is reduced for smaller screens such as tablets or smartphones, saving bandwidth. Symmetry CompleteView integrates with the Symmetry line of HD cameras as well as many other leading camera manufacturers, offering end users more camera choices for their video solution. Symmetry CompleteView supports both analog and digital technology. Customers replacing analog cameras with network cameras simply check the IP box in their configuration as the camera licence is interchangeable between analog and digital IP. Symmetry CompleteView offers a simple and easy to use way to organize complex deployments and provides complete control of view layouts and interactive maps for an enterprise installation. Users can monitor the status of all servers, add or remove users, change the configurations of servers and clients, and push software updates out to servers and clients from a single desktop application. Users can view Symmetry CompleteView software from their iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ smartphones using Symmetry TouchView Mobile Apps. View live video, recorded video and PTZ camera control from anywhere, anytime and from any camera. The Dynamic Resolution Scaling automatically sizes the video for live viewing, significantly reducing network usage and providing higher frame rates over mobile connections. G4S Technology will continue to sell and support its existing video management software and hardware. The existing Symmetry Video Management System comes standard in the Symmetry Access Control software. Symmetry Encoders offer a wide variety of choice from single channel unit to a rack mount chassis for up to 40 cameras, and offer advanced motion detection and video content analytics on every channel. Symmetry’s robust integrations and the addition of the new video product line will give customers more options to meet their business needs.
