Mirasys launches new VMS

Helsinki, Finland

Mirasys Ltd., one of the leading suppliers of open platform video management and visual intelligence solutions, launches a new generation video management system: Mirasys VMS V8.

The new V8 scales more than ever to different size environments, meets customers’ demanding versatile needs and offers several additional applications that improve the efficiency of customers’ daily operations. Mirasys V8 includes three different product variants: Ikon, Entegra and Stratos. Entegra is already available in March, 2017 and the other two variants will be available in the autumn, 2017.

Mirasys VMS V8 is fast and easy to install. Special attention has been paid to the efficient centralised maintenance and management demanded by the networked video management systems. Petri Bäckström, VP of Product Management, says: “Our goal is to get the software deployment costs to less than half of the current level. From the autumn 2017 onwards centralised remote management, diagnostics maintenance and updating of servers, client applications and drivers do not require on-site travel any more. Ready-made templates speed the information input to the system and installation work. User profiles are easy to create, manage, and modify. Servers can be pre-configured before the delivery on site, and pre-installed and pre-configured cameras and applications on servers save time.”

Users can fully modify the very modern user interface of the Mirasys VMS V8 based on your unique needs and preferences. The UI is easy to learn for novice users, yet it has powerful features and customisation for professional users. In the autumn a new HTML5 browser-based client user interface provides easy access to the Mirasys system from everywhere: desktop, tablet and mobile.

Companies and communities have more cameras and megapixels in use. Frame rates and bitrates have increased and there is a need for more server capacity. Systems simply need to perform better to be able to use the visual information received from the cameras. Petri Bäckström explains: “Mirasys VMS V8 meets and exceeds scalability and performance demands set by the latest camera technologies - giving total freedom in designing the VMS system. Among other things, Mirasys Trustore Technology provides unlimited storage possibilities.”

Slow up take of biometrics in access market

Ever since the first fingerprint readers came to market more than a decade ago, access control industry stakeholders have eagerly anticipated the prospect of finally eliminating cards from their systems.  However, as of 2015, biometric reader sales accounted for just 30 percent of access control reader sales in the Americas. Meaning they ranked third, still behind both 125 kHz proximity and smart card readers in popularity. "Hardly the credential revolution that manufacturers were hoping for." says Jim Dearing, analyst at research company, IHS Markit.
