Multiple Bandwidth Controls Enhance Remote Viewing on Low Bandwidth Networks

SAN FRANCISCO, April 8, 2013 –3VR, the video intelligence company, announced
today that VisionPointTM VMS, which combines powerful forensic search
capabilities and integrated video analytics into a single intuitive
interface, drastically reduces investigation times with its industry leading
forensic search and case management capabilities. VisionPoint VMS Pro also
provides tools for low bandwidth environments.

VisionPoint VMS provides users with deep, real time video analytics and
user-friendly case management tools, along with many additional features.
The powerful Forensic Search feature enables users to quickly mine through
videos for meaningful and actionable information without the need for
fast-forwarding and rewinding for suspect information and other important
data. This robust search engine greatly reduces the previous number of hours
spent in video search, allowing security teams to take faster, more
immediate action.

To simplify the management of evidence, VisionPoint VMS’ Case Manager
enables video captured on numerous cameras or over multiple days, to be
collected and stored in one single file. The entire case file may then be
sent to law enforcement. Most VMS systems only allow videos to be bookmarked
and require each small video snippet to be burned onto separate storage
devices, such as DVDs. Case Manager removes this restriction for users.

“Our customers are always looking to improve their response to an incident,
so one of our goals has always been to provide users the ability to conduct
investigations quicker and more efficiently,” said Joe Boissy, CMO of 3VR.
“3VR solutions give them that edge they need to perform at a higher level.”

Many retail and banking networks rely on less than robust networks and 3VR
understood the need to enable their customers to stream and remote view
video within these low bandwidth environments. VisionPoint VMS includes
bandwidth saving features such as “Increase Bitrate Upon Alarm” which only
increases bandwidth usage during any kind of specified event. Features such
as 3VR’s Bandwidth Throttle slows bit rates during heavy traffic use
allowing better remote viewing functionality. Adaptive Bandwidth was
designed to handle remote viewing over ultra-low bandwidth environments, by
having VisionPoint VMS send images instead of streamed video for remote

When bandwidth constraints are an issue, VisionPoint VMS’ Live Video
Alternate Stream function records the full-resolution stream from the camera
to disk, while enabling an alternate, low bandwidth stream for live viewing.
For playback of recorded video across a less-than-stellar network,
VisionPoint VMS’ Stored Video Fidelity Mode can either buffer video for
smooth playback or drop frames as necessary to prevent any lag time.
Bandwidth Scheduling allows a user to schedule basic bandwidth consumption
restraints for peak and off peak hours.

The entire VisionPoint Family can be experienced at ISC West 2013, at booth
number 26057, between April 10, 2013, and April 12, 2013, at Las Vegas,
