CathexisVision finalist in Benchmark Innovation Awards 2018
July 2018, News, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

CathexisVision, the IP video management software suite from Cathexis Technologies, has been nominated by international security publication, Benchmark Magazine, for the annual Benchmark Innovation Awards 2018.

Benchmark, in its quest to advance the future of electronic security, exposes all security hardware and software to a rigorous series of hardware and software testing under a range of conditions. Based on the belief that the creation of innovative and smart solutions must deliver real value to end-users, Benchmark ensures that all products are thoroughly tested to see if their performance lives up to the manufacturers’ specifications and claims.

To highlight such technological advances, Benchmark runs its annual Innovation Awards scheme, which recognises and rewards innovative thinking and smart design.

Cathexis Technologies was nominated in the Video Surveillance Software category, and is competing against other internationally acclaimed brands, including: Pelco, Genetec, Milestone and Avigilon.

Other categories for the Innovation Awards include Video Surveillance Hardware, Access Control Hardware and Software, Site Protection Hardware and Software, Intelligent Systems, Business Intelligence, Infrastructure and Cybersecurity.

“By using intelligent VMS software along with a good understanding of the customer’s needs, one can really tailor the solution to provide maximum effectiveness and efficiency,” says Gus Brecher, managing director of Cathexis Africa and business development director of Cathexis Technologies.

Benchmark notes that some of the most appealing features associated with Cathexis Vision is its simplicity. Sometimes end-users are intimidated by the setup, licensing, camera setup, configuration and backup procedures, but CathexisVision has taken great strides in developing one of the most seamless user experiences. Cathexis Technologies believes that when it comes to configuration, users should be looking at simple and intuitive user configuration with user-friendly help files. Other notable points included the software’s scalability and upgradeability as well as the ability to setup multiple cameras.

CathexisVision 2018 includes Snap Search, Motion Search and Activity Trails, all of which make finding specific incidents in recorded footage extremely easy and very fast in both quiet and busy environments, improving efficiency and effectiveness.

Adjacent Camera Mapping allows operators to easily follow suspects across multiple cameras and Advanced Video Analytics significantly boosts the value of any surveillance installation. For complete user peace-of-mind, users also have access to the backup configuration and restore points.

The CathexisVision design tools allow users to design the best solution for each application. All these features, plus many more, make CathexisVision one of the most powerful and flexible VMS platforms on the market today.
