Nextiva Virtual Matrix
Verint's high-performance virtual matrix for software-based video distribution to computers, video walls, LANs, and WANs
Nextiva Virtual Matrix is Verint’s high-performance virtual matrix that automatically distributes video, audio, and alarms across Local and Wide Area Networks (LANs/WANs). With Virtual Matrix, authorized users can view live and recorded video on analog monitors or PCs. They can view predetermined image sequences, video from multiple cameras on a single monitor (tours), and multiple tours at one time (salvos). And they can control PTZ cameras, assign cameras to monitors on demand, and simultaneously replay alarm-based video at multiple locations for redundancy and coordinated response.
Nextiva Virtual Matrix provides the functionality of traditional analog matrices without the limitations. Verint software-based switching technology promotes virtually unrestricted system scalability without the costs and bottlenecks associated with matrix hardware. Virtual Matrix can address and manage any number of video inputs and outputs with additional hardware investments. And Virtual Matrix can interface with any PTZ keyboard protocol and control any PTZ dome with conventional commands, such as Pan/Tilt/Zoom, Focus/Iris, and Presets.
From a central workspace within Nextiva Control Center, administrators can identify and configure all cameras, monitors, and CCTV keyboards. Then, authorized personnel can define camera tours, salvos, and instant replay settings for customized camera views from the same Virtual Matrix workspace.
Virtual Matrix works with standard IT equipment and TCP/IP networking infrastructure and supports traditional CCTV components. This helps protect existing investments, reduces training costs, and allows staff to continue using the PTZ cameras, keyboards, and other devices to which they’re already accustomed.
Virtual Matrix can also be integrated with other systems, such as access control solutions, to expedite emergency event notification and response.
This sophisticated switching software comes fully integrated with the Verint Nextiva networked IP video portfolio, for easy interoperability with all Nextiva devices and video management software applications, more rapid deployment, and lower cost of ownership and operation.
