Tyco American Dynamics victor & VideoEdge Platform Gains Optimizations, New Configuration Tools
The video management system also includes support for health protocols that may be required for returning to the workplace, such as mask detection and elevated skin temperature detection.
MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls has released the latest version of Tyco American Dynamics victor and VideoEdge video management systems, offering accelerated deployment, more powerful analytics, and optimized video management and control, according to the company.
Offering more powerful camera features, enhanced analytic capabilities and new configuration tools and workflows for faster deployment and reduced operator fatigue, Johnson Controls says the victor and VideoEdge 5.7 offers more intuitive camera management, simplified site management and more robust cybersecurity features in a modernized interface.
“Enterprise customers need powerful and purpose-built video management that can be customized to meet the changing dynamics of today’s workplaces, regardless of industry or vertical market,” says Jammy DeSousa, director of product management, video solutions, Johnson Controls. “This latest version of the victor and VideoEdge platform enhances our current tools for improved user experience and further strengthens our existing cyber resiliency measures that are core to our offerings at Johnson Controls.”
More robust support for powerful camera features — including enhanced object and person detection and H.265+ compression — enable victor and VideoEdge users to leverage additional processing power from the cameras, resulting in deeper analytics with Illustra cameras.
Cyber resiliency is also enhanced with encrypted video streaming from Illustra cameras directly into VideoEdge and Illustra Auto Configuration, which automatically configures Illustra camera security settings and adds the settings into the VideoEdge NVRs.
To support health and safety protocols, temperature readings from the Tyco Illustra Pro Thermal EST (elevated skin temperature) cameras can be stored and displayed within victor. If an elevated skin temperature is not detected, a face detection feature will ensure adherence with face covering policies, triggering a mask missing alarm if no mask is detected.
Johnson Controls says intuitive controls and a host of productivity enhancements provide operators with simplified and optimized site management tools in victor and VideoEdge. With enhanced timeline control, operators can adjust playback speeds and scrub through video playback to more easily find specific sections of recorded video.
Intuitive wizards and workflows are said to reduce deployment times and operator learning curve to provide better control of key video operational areas.
victor and VideoEdge 5.7 also offer the following features:
- “Shake n Dry” — allows operators to literally shake off excess water or debris from p/t/z cameras
- Configurable sensitivity settings for Intelligent Search for people on a per camera basis
- Support for new Illustra Pro Gen 4 cameras
