Cortech Datalog MV now integrates with Hikvision cameras

Hikvision surveillance cameras can now be integrated with Datalog MV from Cortech Developments, which coordinates a wide range of building, fire, security and energy systems.

Datalog MV, which operates with the latest version of Datalog, is a modular software suite providing local and remote site monitoring through a wide range of camera systems, including PTZ cameras. Operating as a single or multi-user graphical user interface it enhances the control, flexibility and stability of hardware from disparate surveillance brands.

Datalog is designed to reduce risk and cost while maximising efficiency, situational awareness and accountability. By allowing multiple CCTV brands to run as individual ‘plug-ins’ Datalog MV maximises overall system stability and minimises exposure to risk and downtime.

This integration with Hikvision means Datalog MV operators can view live or recorded video. An alarm can automatically associate any number of cameras along with other more complex causes and effects. Events can then be replayed on the Datalog screen to show the pre-, post- and live event video for instant verification.

“We are excited to welcome Hikvision into our portfolio of integration partners and we are looking forward to working with them,” said Jason Blundell, head of sales & marketing for Cortech Developments. “The partnership between Hikvision and Cortech demonstrates our ongoing commitment to offer users flexibility and the widest choice, when selecting an integrated software platform.”

“This partnership represents a powerful combination of technologies, reliability, performance, and compatibility,” said Justin Hollis, marketing director for Hikvision UK & Ireland Ltd. We are proud to have integrated our cameras with Cortech, to enable effective and scalable security operations in a new way.”
