Arecont Vision unveils new video management solution and remote, cloud-based installation to European market

Arecont Vision unveiled its brand new ‘Total Video Solution’ to the European market at IFSEC International 2018.

The US-based IP-based megapixel camera and video surveillance solutions provider introduced the Contera VMS Video Management System, ConteraWS Web Services, Contera CMR Cloud Managed Recorders, and ConteraIP megapixel cameras.

Arecont Vision also demonstrated its MegaIP series of single and multi-sensor megapixel cameras.

“Our European customers are very important to Arecont Vision, and we’ve developed our new Contera offerings in part to address what they have told us,” said Raul Calderon, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of Arecont Vision.

“We now offer another single- and multi-sensor megapixel camera lineup to complement our Mega camera portfolio, plus advanced VMS, cloud management, and video recorder platforms.

“Our customers are now able to choose a traditional stand-alone VMS system or to leverage the power of local recording with uploaded video and management over the cloud all from Arecont Vision, or to continue to purchase our products integrated with those of our Technology Partners.”

Brad Donaldson, Vice President, Product Development, showed IFSEC visitors a hands-free remote setup of new Arecont Vision cameras, which Arecont Vision says will dramatically simplify installation. Contera Web Services will configure and set views from single-sensor MegaDome G3 RS and multi-sensor adjustable-view SurroundVideo Omni G3 cameras.

ConteraWS can be used to manage Arecont Vision cameras and the ConteraVMS. Video can then be uploaded and accessed remotely over the cloud – anytime, anywhere.

Deployed around the world, Arecont Vision products are integration-tested with leading VMS, video analytics, networking, storage, and other related products, with ONVIF support, through the Technology Partner Program’s MegaLab facility.

The company is also slated to launch Contera Bullet, Contera Outdoor Dome, and Contera Panoramic megapixel camera models soon.
