Branches and roots

Issue 4 2022 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Cathexis is a locally owned South African company where development engineers in the Durban office continue to innovate and improve the company’s video surveillance management systems. Well-known for its helpful, down-to-earth staff, the team work hard to innovate and build on the strengths of the flagship product, CathexisVision, which keeps businesses and homes secure and facilitates effective infrastructure management in sites within and beyond South Africa. As South Africa’s leading VMS company, Cathexis continues to prove itself as a trusted technology vendor in the SADC region.

The company’s international growth and success has emerged from its deep roots in South Africa. The engineering department, support team, and other divisions work together closely at the Durban head office, and the headquarters of Cathexis Africa in Centurion, to create comprehensive VMS solutions for the company’s end users.

The company’s technical innovation process is paired with a robust support infrastructure, which provides a strong foundation for the sales and product management teams to liaise with Cathexis’s network of technology partners, suppliers, distributors and clients.

From its inception over 25 years ago, Cathexis has grown to a global scale, providing security solutions for numerous organisations and retailers requiring extensive security. While Cathexis provides VMS solutions for major international clients, the company has valued and established clients closer to home, including businesses, banks, educational institutions, residential estates, data centres, retail chains, and manufacturers in South Africa and across Africa. The team at Cathexis gives credit to these long-standing relationships for its continued market leadership.

Keeping abreast of the rapid changes in the field of AI technology, the feature-rich CathexisVision software continues to evolve to meet the security and site management needs of diverse sectors. In addition, the software’s capacity for third-party integrations facilitates the management of CCTV and multiple systems from a single interface, amplifying the monitoring power and efficiency of any installation.

This year has also seen the launch of Carbon, a graphical user interface with a sleek modern aesthetic, more flexibility when customising access levels and monitor views, and faster processing and video performance. Carbon translates many of CathexisVision’s existing features, such as the Smart Search tools and database search functions, into an intuitive and accessible format, providing the ultimate in operator ease-of-use.

CathexisVision 2022 allows for remote connectivity to CathexisVision Mobile, a new app dedicated to speed and convenience, and boasting an impressively elegant and simple user interface. The app allows operators to use CathexisVision’s monitoring tools on-the-go. Cathexis will not be stopping there. Currently in development is Carbon Enterprise, a sophisticated platform for monitoring multiple sites at once, from one streamlined interface.

With a proven record of providing tailored, cost-effective security solutions in the region, Cathexis will continue to pursue growth by building on its foundation of innovation and integrity.
