CathexisVision, the Video Surveillance Management Software Suite from Cathexis Technologies has received another complimentary verdict from Benchmark as a “ Recommended” and “Best Buy” product for March 2019.
Benchmark is a globally recognised business-to-business publication for installers and integrators, dedicated to technological innovation and the design and implementation of smarter solutions. It delivers independent and credible editorial content based on rigorous hardware and software testing to ensure that the featured products live up to the manufacturer’s specifications and claims.
Last year, CathexisVision took first place for the prestigious 2018 Benchmark Innovation Awards in the Video Surveillance Software category.
While Video Management Solutions (VMS) solutions are often associated with large and complex applications with multiple benefits for high-end users, they also deliver bespoke functionality and a flexible value-added approach for smaller applications. This March, Benchmark examined various VMS solutions that would be ideal for SMEs and other smaller applications.
According to Benchmark, VMS solutions for smaller applications need to meet the criteria for simple installation, easy integration with third-party devices and excel in event handling.
“The power of a Video Management System (VMS) lies in its ability to provide users with an innovation that has practical and useable outcomes,” says Gus Brecher managing director of Cathexis Africa and business development director of Cathexis Technologies.
CathexisVision seamlessly meets these requirements, particularly when it comes to setup, integration and event-based rules. The Benchmark editorial team also remarked on the old-school-feel of CathexisVision, which provides for simple and logical flow. Implementation was solid and stable throughout testing, and the ease with which analytics can be configured also made for a standout user experience.
Benchmark offers three different verdicts for tested products: Recommended, Outstanding and Best Buy. Recommended Status is awarded to products that have undergone rigorous testing and reached a high standard in delivering genuine benefits in terms of innovative and creative solutions.
Best Buy considers the price/performance ratio to reflect value for money. In group tests the product which delivers the best price/performance ratio, receives the Benchmark Best Buy status.
Other products tested alongside CathexisVision this month, included: Axis: CameraStation (rated as Recommended), Milestone Systems: XProtect Essential+ (rated as Recommended), Hanwha Techwin: Wisenet Wave (rated as Recommended).
The Benchmark Verdict for CathexisVision was as follows:
CathexisVision offers two versions of the VMS software which are ideal for SMEs, and integrators or installers should consider the VMS when seeking an intuitive and flexible package. At first glance the VMS does look like you might need some IT skills, but it is actually very straightforward. The configuration flow is excellent and many of the processes are automated. If you can select from drop-down menus, you can set up event management! Installation is very straightforward; the device discovery feature works well. Functionality and flexibility are plentiful. CathexisVision easily achieves Recommended Status and is also rated as a Best Buy Product!
“We are delighted that we continue to gain global recognition for our commitment to developing a superior, practical and innovative solution with excellent outcomes for the end-user,” says Brecher. “Thanks again to Benchmark for this important affirmation,” he concluded.
