videoNEXT launches free IP surveillance software

Provides businesses and consumers with remote video monitoring features

By CBR Staff Writer

videoNEXT, a developer of surveillance and physical security information management (PSIM) products, has launched its new CAVU family of mobile surveillance software that provides large organisations, small businesses and consumers with remote video monitoring features over 3G and Wifi networks.

The CAVU family of mobile surveillance software brings videoNEXT’s video surveillance application, Security Knowledge Manager (SKM), to Apple’s mobile devices. CAVU is available in three versions: CAVU FREE, CAVU and CAVU PRO.

CAVU FREE allows users to directly connect to IP cameras (Axis and Panasonic BB & BL Series) and monitor them remotely.

CAVU connects to any of videoNEXT’s SKM video management softwares (SKM-Cirrus, SKM-Stratus and SKM-Altus). According to the company, it provides a live camera matrix; live full screen video with pan, tilt and zoom controls; playback of recorded video from any camera; an alarm/event log with video playback; and alarm acknowledgment.

CAVU PRO includes features of CAVU, plus multi-server capability. It uses iPhone’s camera to stream live video back to any SKM-video management system. CAVU PRO also offers GPS position tracking on Google Earth maps and allows the use of pan-tilt-zoom pre-sets, the company said.

Andriy Fomenko, vice president and chief technology officer for videoNEXT, said: Our CAVU offerings are the top mobile surveillance applications available at the Apple App Store. They are the most comprehensive surveillance and security applications available on Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch today. The iPhone is an ideal mobile platform for viewing your security cameras, and our two-way streaming of video is nothing short of ground breaking.

The company added that its SKM is an open, standards-based software that works with nearly any IP, digital or analog camera, runs on any Intel or compatible server and uses an organisation’s existing security and data infrastructure. It provides IP surveillance and physical security information management.

videoNEXT SKM is offered in three levels: SKM-Altus for enterprises, SKM-Stratus for mid tier features and SKM-Cirrus for the consumer market. CAVU and CAVU PRO require SKM-Cirrus to manage the video. This consumer video management system operates on the Mac platform.
