Cathexis CCTV Products
Cathexis provides video surveillance solutions that will still be relevant many years in the future and have a reputation for exceptional support, and product enhancement to satisfy market requirement.
IP Camera Support
CathexisVision supports most popular brands of IP cameras using both ONVIF and proprietary protocols via a true UPnP interface. Integration includes multiple video streams, audio, input/output control, on-camera (Edge) video analytics as well as 360 “fisheye” camera de-warping.
To make setup easier, and reduce the probability of error, Cathexis has introduced new setup “Wizards”. These wizards logically guide clients through the setup process for cameras, databases, recording, analytics, events and event actions.
Camera Parameter Cloning (CPC)
Cathexis CPC feature makes it easy to apply camera settings across multiple cameras. Settings like multiple video streams, resolutions, frame rates, bitrates and others are easily copied and pasted from one reference camera to as many of your site’s cameras as you wish, thereby reducing site setup times significantly.
Event and Action Management
Events can be triggered from inputs, video analytics, or third-party systems. Rules-based configuration enables automatic actions from these specific events to be performed, including switching cameras to monitors, emailing, controlling relays, sending alarms to a control room, playing audio clips and many others.
Cathexis mobile device applications enable you to remotely view cameras from your mobile device. CatMobile enables you to view up to four cameras simultaneously, review recorded footage from selected cameras and control PTZ cameras from the user interface.
Cathexis Vision provides flexible storage solutions that can be tailored to suit client requirements. Multiple databases situated on recording servers, or at network addressed storage (NAS) areas, enable clients to maximise storage effectiveness.
Remote Site Monitoring
The CathexisVision site management software provides authentic remote client system management. This includes performing all system functions from set-up to viewing, reviewing and system management, from anywhere across the globe. We provide many compression techniques to provide efficient streaming of live video across limited bandwidth infrastructures.
The Cathexis Health Manager provides real-time system analysis and can be configured to send alarms if problems are detected. Camera and hard drive failures, environmental conditions, communication integrity, software errors, and much more are monitored providing peace of mind. Also included is full reporting capability to enable you to generate system status reports.
Featuring a multi-layered, hierarchical, interactive interface, maps provide representation and control, of a sites resources. These include cameras, I/O devices, access control doors, alarm/fire panel points, and more, all displayed on a graphical interface. The map also provides the ability to represent, and control, preset PTZ dome positions from the GUI; drag-and-rol selected integrated third party systems.
Cathexis Vision provides its own analytics suite as well as the facility to integrate on-camera (Edge) analytics. Algorithms provided by Cathexis include a multi-zone “SMART” learning motion detection algorithm, abandoned or removed object detection, loitering, speed, direction, line crossing, queue length analysis and object counting. Our user friendly interface allows you to easily configure the algorithms, using both live and recorded video footage.
Apart from the already powerful “health monitoring”, more tools are provided to assist the installers in analysis of the whole system, both in real time and historically. Monitoring network camera streaming performance, recording bitrates, live viewing statistics, and network throughput, enables installers to easily troubleshoot problems on-site. This provides real intelligence on the technical integrity of the solution.
3rd Party Integration
Third party systems such as alarm and fire panels, access control, point-of-sale, building and plant management systems, and perimeter monitoring equipment can be integrated with the Cathexis software to provide an extremely powerful single user interface, with video verification of events that occur on these systems. Rules-based actions can then be initiated from the triggered event data.
