barox Kommunikation AG, the global manufacturer of professional standard switches, has announced integration to the Geutebrück Video Management System (VMS) to enable extended user control.
The company says its capability to integrate their advanced DMS network monitoring tool is unique in the CCTV market and greatly extends Geutebrück’s Video Security Solution control functionality.
According to barox, Geutebrück VMS is characterised by its ease of use and intuitive usability, for the playback of live images and recordings, which can be individually adapted to the requirements of the end-user.
Protecting sensitive data from unauthorised access, rights for user groups and locations can be adjusted in the background, according to user requirements.
Image and video data are stored in forgery-proof Geutebrück format (GBF), which can also serve as evidence in court. The system can be used stand-alone or expanded by adding several systems.
The barox integration also allows users to directly manage all IP devices on their security network via Geutebrück VMS, allowing cameras to be switched off completely, for security reasons (i.e., in the event of a compromised data line), or turned off and on, to perform a re-boot.
“We are pleased that the integration for Geutebrück’s VMS and our barox switches is now available,” said Rudolf Rohr, Co-founder and Managing Partner of barox.
“This integration allows the ultimate user control of our Ethernet switches directly from Geutebrück VMS. The advanced switch functionality of barox provides significant added value for operators of professional video security systems in government agencies, local authorities, transportation, energy, retail or prisons.”
In addition to the released barox plug-in, Geutebrück enables users to leverage the advantages of a barox DMS in its architecture and manage all IP devices in their security network directly through software.
This is intended to provide users with all the benefits offered in conjunction with the barox Device Management System.
The barox DMS offers a live graphical overview of network topology, displaying a variety of valuable network information, including Omnicast system diagnostic data that indicates the status of cameras and switches, facilitating the localisation of network or device issues.
Other barox advantages include 100Mbit/s – 1000Mbit/s Jumbo Frames, to ensure that camera images are not lost, cable diagnostics and remote switch traffic monitoring, where live traffic data is displayed on a graphical chart.
“The integration of barox DMS-Health Monitoring and the specially developed plug-in into the Geutebrück VMS software marks another step in the long-standing collaboration between Geutebrück and barox,” said Ulf Hüther, Head of Technology Partner Management at Geutebrück GmbH.
“This profound cooperation aligns with the growing demands in the critical sector and has the clear goal of providing Geutebrück users, in conjunction with barox, with a higher level of security, overview and control of the entire system. The ease of operation of individual components is cleverly integrated into a comprehensive overall solution.”
