OTTAWA, ONTARIO, January 31, 2013March Networks®, the No. 1 supplier of video surveillance systems to banks in the Americas, is pleased to introduce its completely redesigned platform for the financial services market. With new 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs as the foundation, this comprehensive platform provides all the power banks need for video surveillance today and performance for years to come. The 8000 Series supports March Networks Searchlight, the industry’s most extensive video intelligence applications suite designed to increase the value of video surveillance investments by helping customers reduce fraud and improve branch operations.

“We spend every day working with our 450+ financial customers, and have built this next-generation solution with their specific needs in mind,” said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. “We understand that our customers can never afford to lose their video. They also require rich features to speed investigations, need a pragmatic migration path to IP, and want to extend their video investments to improve business operations. We are confident that with the introduction of this new March Networks Financial platform, we have made the best banking solution in the business significantly better.”


Future-Proof, High-Performance 8000 Series
The 8000 Series provides the crystal-clear video banks need to better identify fraud and build strong case evidence. The NVRs employ March Networks optimized H.264 video compression to capture high-definition (HD) video and provide March Networks customers with noticeably sharper analog video quality without increasing storage requirements. They support as many as 32 IP cameras, and any hybrid combination up to 16 analog and 16 IP cameras, enabling customers to take advantage of IP video capabilities while simultaneously leveraging existing analog surveillance investments. 

The 8000 Series also offers industry-first features that streamline technical support for installers and reduce customer service costs. These features include March Networks’ popular docking station design, and a QR code on each NVR that works in conjunction with the company’s free GURU smartphone application to provide immediate access to product information, warranty checks, express repair processing and troubleshooting tutorials in the field.

Powerful Searchlight Application Software
An essential component of the company’s financial platform is March Networks Searchlight. Incorporating an extensive suite of fraud detection and video intelligence applications, Searchlight helps banking customers reduce losses from ATM skimming, cash harvesting and other fraud. Now available as part of the March Networks Command browser-based client software, new Searchlight features include streamlined and more intuitive search tools to support faster investigations. The intelligent analytics that power Searchlight can be enabled on the 8000 Series platforms, so no additional hardware is required. In addition, Searchlight now provides operational metrics, such as people counting, queue monitoring and dwell-time data, via optional video analytics that help improve the efficiency of banking branch operations.   

The Searchlight portfolio includes powerful Financial Transaction Investigation, Skimming Detection, Image Tracker and License Plate Tracker. The integrated applications enable banks to proactively detect fraudulent activity across their organizations and gather stronger case evidence through centralized searches that correlate video, transaction information, facial images and license plate data.

Purpose-Built IP Cameras
For banks ready to migrate to IP video technologies, March Networks is offering two new IP cameras engineered to address the variable lighting often found in retail bank branches. The IP cameras, which include the HD MegaPX WDR MiniDome Z and the standard-definition CamPX WDR MiniDome, deliver all the clarity and detail of IP video in a cost-effective solution. Both surveillance cameras incorporate powerful Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) critical to capturing high-quality video in branch environments, where bright backlighting from large windows and low light conditions after hours can adversely affect video quality. They complement the company’s existing IP cameras portfolio and offer enhanced redundancy as part of a complete March Networks solution.
