Johnson Controls has added two new appliances to its video security products portfolio: Tyco Analytics Appliance and Tyco Transcoder. When added to existing IP recorders, the hardware offloads video processing from network video recorders, increasing system capabilities without overhauling the infrastructure. The Tyco Transcoder increases transcoding by 14 channels to meet live streaming requirements with constrained network bandwidths while maintaining a small form factor. The simplified set-up reduces installation time and the hardware can be easily deployed in a variety of environments.
Johnson Controls is introducing a new, more powerful Network Video Recorder (NVR) that will provide the foundation for self-training analytics and, eventually, artificial intelligence. The hardware offers highly accurate people counting and tracking from an overhead view by distinguishing between humans and objects in the camera’s field of view. When combined with the full suite of analytics available through VideoEdge, as well as the command and control of the victor Video Management System, users are able to access insightful business data.
Johnson Controls announces the latest version of the victor and VideoEdge flagship video management solution (VMS). This release features an array of tools to improve analytic reporting, and streamline device and user management across multi-location installations. The victor client on VideoEdge hardware platforms allows users to leverage high-performance video streaming, audio, video intelligence and an expansive feature set for improved real-time command and management.
Johnson Controls has announced the addition of a bullet form factor to Tyco’s Illustra Flex 4K camera line. The latest model provides increased detail and efficient bandwidth management technology.
