Cisco offers network-centric video surveillance software and hardware that supports video transmission, monitoring, recording, and management. Cisco video surveillance solutions work in unison with the advanced features and functions of the IP network infrastructure-switches, routers, and other network security devices-to enable secure, policy-based access to live or recorded video. With support for many third-party video surveillance cameras, encoders, and applications, Cisco video surveillance solutions allow customers to build best-in-class video surveillance systems that optimize cost, performance, and capability.

The Cisco Video Surveillance Manager consists of the following products:

• Cisco Video Surveillance Media Server: The core component of the Cisco Video Surveillance Software Suite, it enables the collection and routing of video from a wide range of third-party cameras; event-tagging and recording of video for review and archive; secure local, remote, and redundant video archive capabilities; and bandwidth management over LANs and WANs.

• Cisco Video Surveillance Operations Manager: Allows organizations to quickly and effectively configure and manage video throughout the enterprise. It provides multiple Web-based consoles to configure, manage, display, and control video throughout an IP network, and the ability to manage a large number of Cisco Video Surveillance Media Servers, virtual matrixes, cameras, and users.

• Cisco Video Surveillance Virtual Matrix: Allows authorized security managers and operators to select and control the video that is displayed on any number of digital monitors on a local and remote basis. The software also permits integrated security applications to control video displays. It uses an IP network to provide aggregation and transmission of video from cameras and recording platforms, offering capabilities that analog switches cannot deliver. The Virtual Matrix brings complete flexibility to the delivery of live and recorded video to demanding command centers, providing high-availability access to network video for continuous monitoring applications.

• Cisco Video Surveillance Encoding Server: An all-in-one appliance that encodes, distributes, manages, and archives digital video feeds. Each server encodes up to 64 channels and provides up to 12 TB of storage. The Encoding Server offers the power and flexibility to meet a diverse range of video surveillance requirements and is cost-effective and simple to install. It lets you combine multiple video codecs in a single Encoding Server, manage bandwidth over each part of an IT network to complement capacity and protect other applications, and create redundant archives of events or loops and automatically store them in a secure location. With the addition of the Cisco Video Surveillance Operations Manager, the Encoding Server also provides administrators and operators with Web-based consoles to configure, manage, display, and control video.
