Synectics Updates Software Platform With New Map Interface, Simplified Management
The new additions to Synectics Synergy are said to enable organizations to monitor and manage increasing volumes of critical real-time data across their surveillance and security networks.
SHEFFIELD, U.K. — Synectics, a global provider of integrated security and surveillance systems, announces the latest release of its Synergy software platform.
The company says new features such as enhanced mapping, system configuration and edge recording mean that customers can save time, money and resources while enhancing their safety and security operations.
Combined with integrations to video analytics technologies, and safeguarding capabilities to ensure compliance with data protection laws, Synergy says it is helping customers navigate ‘new normal’ conditions.
“Synergy is a platform that matches powerful capability with real-life usability, connecting millions of devices across cities, infrastructure, and transport networks. For organizations facing new ways of working and additional demands on resources, achieving this balance has never been more important,” says Dan Noble, product manager, Synergy, at Synectics.
Synergy’s next-generation mapping engine ensures greater control with visibility of real-time events, allowing operators to swiftly navigate to the location and status of any situation, enabling them to quickly coordinate the necessary response, according to the company.
Synergy Maps present vast quantities of system, operational and third-party device information. This is displayed as “glanceable” data with icons, groupings and interactive points within a design the company describes as being easy to understand, navigate and rapidly interrogate.
The mapping user interface also allows operators to navigate across multiple formats, including vector maps, CAD and GIS, making it well-suited for customers who need a high degree of flexibility to efficiently monitor diverse areas, assets and operations across large estates or multiple sites.
To aid rapid troubleshooting, business planning and system asset control, Synergy’s Asset Register provides an assessment of the configuration, licensing and version information for hardware and software components.
“A relatively small configuration issue, perhaps a version inconsistency between components, can be the root cause of a bigger problem that takes time, energy, and money to resolve,” says Noble. “With the Asset Register, it is easy to identify or rule out scenarios like this. It shows everything customers need to know to keep track of their assets and helps engineers to keep the system working optimally. We wanted to ensure that this information is readily available when needed.”
Synectics Intelligent Edge Recording mitigates the risk of footage loss by using the in-built camera memory to store a cache of video footage, only writing to the SD card if the Synectics IP camera cannot connect to networked storage hardware. Synergy’s backfilling functionality automatically captures this data and restores it to the server once available.
In addition to ensuring uninterrupted footage, this recording configuration avoids potential issues such as SD card malfunction or data loss due to overwriting, according to the company.
The latest version of Synergy also continues to focus on cybersecurity improvements and safeguards to protect footage continuity.
