ControlByNet Introduces Multi-Site Hosted Surveillance Solution at 2010 NRF Loss Prevention Conference in Atlanta, GA

ControlByNet is introducing its new multi-site hosted surveillance solution for organization-wide management and control. The new application allows all location accesses be centrally controlled and remove the site-by-site methods of older technologies. Single website login permits access to all corporation locations to view live video, archives and events.

ControlByNet, a leader in hosted surveillance technology, is pleased to announce the launch of its institutional multi-site i-flashback hosted solution. This new release is designed to provide a solution to an organization as a whole, instead of the common site-by-site approach. The main differentiator is the ability of its central authentication to stretch across multiple hosted or onsite servers. Users perform a single login on the website and are presented with a list of all the organization's locations where access has been granted.

"Too often we see individual installations based on consumer video systems where corporate users have multiple bookmarks, usernames and passwords. Why not log in once and have a list of all the permissible locations presented to you? Quickly jump from site-to-site looking at live video, archives and events. An organization should have an organization-wide answer," commented Ryan Strange, President of ControlByNet. "Once you add the option of a guard station or dedicated viewing screens you have a total solution…good luck getting those features directly from the camera manufacturers."

ControlByNet's hosted solution is considered a true IP-based solution, meaning it doesn't just reroute the user directly to the camera image; instead it controls and reprocesses that image. For the corporation it means the camera can be secured behind a corporate firewall with only ControlByNet's software being accessed remotely. It also means ControlByNet can apply intelligence and bandwidth-saving features centrally without configuring the cameras directly as with most applications.

"Possibly the greatest benefit to a real IP-based hosted system is the central control. Smaller installations might have 4-6 cameras but never store even one recording onsite. Everything is stored safely away, backed up and protected. Even larger onsite systems use the same platform and utilize a centralized login server," noted Paul Ismail, Partner at ControlByNet. "Another major factor, what happens when the 'best' camera provider gives way to better technology? ControlByNet is not designing software around a single camera standard, which allows flexibility for the customer down the road. Sure, we work with the 'big guys' but we don't want them dictating the customer requirements and solution on the software side…that's not their expertise."
