When most people hear that Cathexis is a video surveillance company, they think that recording and playing back video is the extent of our capability and usefulness. Video is our major component, but providing holistic security and operational management solutions for our customers is our top priority. CathexisVision specialises in integrated infrastructure. The integration of multiple systems is intrinsic and essential to our goal of creating an effective and efficient operational environment. The ability of CathexisVision to integrate with a plethora of systems enhances the feature-rich CathexisVision video surveillance management software.
The CathexisVision IP video management software (VMS), with its extensive range of features, provides efficient and effective surveillance solutions to help clients get the most out of their surveillance investment and reap rewards for their companies. Based on an open platform, CathexisVision enables the seamless integration of IP cameras, recording servers and viewing infrastructure. The software is also capable of integration with third-party devices such as access control, alarm and fire panels, weighbridges, fence monitoring systems, and logistics scanning systems.
In the past there were two types of management platforms for video and other physical security systems, those made by the hardware vendors that offered limited capabilities and scalability, and which focused on the vendor’s products; and those that allowed multiple brands from multiple vendors to be integrated into a single solution. While the smaller, limited solutions are still available and widely used in small installations, with a little poetic license we can say that the top-tier platforms today are also loosely divided into two camps.
The one camp we can call an open platform that allows partners and developers to integrate just about any third-party system or solution into the basic platform, expanding its use far and wide. The other we shall call a unified platform that is controlled by one company that ensures all the systems and tools are integrated into the platform and perform optimally. Often these platforms still allow third parties to develop add-ons, but limit access to ‘the crown jewels’.

While school and university campuses should provide a safe and collaborative environment for learning and excellence, they have regrettably also become targets for violent crime. On a global scale these institutions face the threat of abductions, shootings, vandalism and even bomb threats. Closer to home, the impact of mass protest action in recent years has threatened the safety and security of thousands of students and educators across the country.
Residential estates are wonderful places to live, offering luxury, space, relaxation (often including sports facilities) and security. And it’s in the security aspect that problems often arise. It’s a cliché, but when estates are designing their houses and facilities for residents, only the best will do; when it comes to security, the best is often…
Cathexis Technologies is pleased to announce its latest integration – Cathexis Video Analytics with SightLogix Smart Thermal Cameras.
Commercial environments are no longer looking for individual security solutions. Today they want a package that offers all the aspects of security they need. Part of the reason for this move is cost based – it’s supposedly cheaper and more convenient to get it all from one supplier. Another reason is the need for integrated solutions that talk to each other for easier management and improved security.
The danger in creating silos of the separate elements of a security system is that full functionality cannot be achieved since these elements are unable to communicate effectively. The end result is a system that falls short of its possible potential to provide organisations with a solution that leverages the full functionality of the individual parts of the whole.
