Video Insight Releases New VMS Client for Mac

The VI Insight video management software client allows Mac users to access live and recorded video from security cameras using an Apple computer.

HOUSTON, Texas – Video Insight has released VI Monitor for Mac, a free video management software (VMS) client. The client allows Mac users to access live and recorded video from security cameras on video surveillance systems using an Apple computer.

“Apple users love their Mac’s and are not excited when the VMS software is only accessible from a browser or from a product that was built for Windows. To address this, we challenged our Apple Mobile Team to build a native Mac client that they would like to use,” says James Whitcomb, CTO of Video Insight. “I’m happy to report that this new client gives Mac users easy access to the cameras in a familiar Apple style.”

VI Monitor for Mac provides users a native application that includes the most common features including high quality images, thumbnails to locate cameras, preset groups of cameras, facility maps, and snapshots for quick review in an investigation.

The new client allows:

  • full resolution H.264 images
  • view cameras from any Video Insight server
  • integrated active directory login
  • recorded clips via motion based thumbnails or quick rewind
  • control pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) and select presets
  • facility maps with live thumbnails and more

VI Monitor for Mac is available for download on the Mac App Store or It is an added extension with no additional licensing fees. Macs should be running OS X 10.9 or greater.
