As a leading global provider of video and situation intelligence solutions, Verint is committed to providing a comprehensive portfolio to help today’s financial institutions identify and proactively address vulnerabilities and security threats, while providing tools to help improve investigations.
The latest version of Nextiva EdgeVR, which is expected to be available this month, delivers all the benefits of an embedded NVR, including bandwidth optimization, remote access and robust surveillance analytics. Its video surveillance functionality can easily scale to support up to 64 IP and analog cameras. Consistent with the EdgeVR open platform design, the solution integrates with various edge devices and systems to deliver flexibility to customers in the financial market.
Among the enhancements to the Nextiva EdgeVR platform are advanced investigation tools, such as face detection, license plate recognition and a variety of surveillance analytics. Specifically designed to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations in corporate command, control and communications environments, it offers video wall support and a mobile application to provide advanced video viewing that helps create new levels of situation awareness.Additional enhancements include:
- Surveillance Analytics offers loitering detection and analysis of aspects such as directional movement, line crossing, objects left behind and missing item scenarios. Once a predefined movement is identified by the system, it can be directed to send emails or SMS alerts to appropriate personnel, or relay messages to associated systems.
- Face Detection enables users to crop faces appearing within a camera’s field of view and make them available for investigation purposes. This feature is designed to help security personnel identify perpetrators across multiple transactions.
- License Plate Recognition enables the extraction of license plate numbers appearing within a camera’s field of view to be checked against state or federal watch lists or known offender lists.
- Guard Center Video Wall Support provides support for multiple monitors on a video wall without the need for additional software. Designed for monitoring corporate facilities, it includes options for user-defined layouts and guard tours, as well as the ability to view alerts and live video together.
- Mobile Client allows security operators to remotely access video, and view live and recorded video from multiple cameras simultaneously. Accessible from Apple iOS devices, the application delivers 10 pre-defined screen layout options, zoom capabilities and the ability to access recent camera views.
- IP Camera Integrations include support for the new line of Verint V3300 IP cameras, as well as third-party cameras to better address specific bank requirements, such as larger fields of view and enhanced monitoring at bank branch entrances and exits.
