Next-Generation Digital Video Surveillance for Business & Government
Deploy a comprehensive solution for capturing, managing, storing, and evaluating digital surveillance
Surveillance systems play a key role in any organization’s approach to protecting people, assets, and critical infrastructure. Accordingly, your organization — whether a commercial enterprise or a government agency — is probably considering a greater investment in this area. Additional expenditures, however, do not address the problems inherent in traditional surveillance systems.
Apple and videoNEXT offer an advanced, open standards–based digital video surveillance solution that delivers exceptional-quality video and unifies all video, audio, data, access control, and alarm management functionality into one command and control center. With a solution from Apple and videoNEXT, organizations benefit from a common operational picture that enables them to capture, manage, analyze, integrate, and act on data that was previously disorganized and overly complex. The end result is improved reaction time, potentially reduced costs, enhanced operator productivity, and fewer security risks and losses.
Manage physical security information on a single platform
A solution from Apple and videoNEXT enables you to integrate information from cameras, access control, perimeter detection, point-of-sale, and other systems into a single platform, providing a cohesive picture of all physical security information.Now you can reduce investigation time and more effectively safeguard your organization’s assets.
Transform video surveillance into a standards-based IT function
With Apple and videoNEXT, you can move from proprietary “black box” solutions to an open, standards-based system that leverages the existing network and IT infrastructure. Benefits include cost reduction and the ability to focus IT and security resources more productively.
Improve the quality of surveillance video
You can also improve the quality of video obtained via video surveillance systems, making it more valuable and actionable. IP-based cameras and robust storage systems produce high-fidelity video that provide not only broader situational awareness — the big picture — but also fine details, such as those that can be used for reading license plates or identifying people.
Easily and affordably scale your digital video surveillance solution
Apple and videoNEXT let you scale digital video surveillance with cost-effective video capture and storage technology. You can store and retain video archives constituting months or years of surveillance using scalable, high-performance XServe capture systems and cost-effective, Apple-certified storage.
Automate security-monitoring processes
Surveillance systems are becoming victims of their own success, as the number of cameras being deployed exceed the capacity of humans to monitor them economically. The Apple and videoNEXT solution offers fast access to digital video feeds to increase security and reduce losses. videoNEXT Stratus software applies video analysis and data-mining algorithms to video feeds to reduce operator workload and lessen reliance on human interaction. When Stratus detects an event that looks suspicious, it can alert security professionals to investigate the situation.
Go with the leader in security and video
Mac OS X offers superior security technology built for compliance with even the most stringent requirements. Apple delivers AES-128/256 encryption to meet data protection needs on accessible internal and external storage devices. Mac OS X includes native support for the H.264 MPEG-4 Part 10 standard, delivering exceptionally high-quality video in compact files. In fact, the ISO chose Apple’s QuickTime as the file format for MPEG-4 in 1998, and every video on the iPod iTouch and iPhone is H.264 or MPEG-4. Apple’s leadership in the digital video market and the stability and reliability of the Mac make Apple products ideal for use in digital video surveillance environments.
