Design Tool

The Cathexis design tool allows you to input all the parameters of your site, including camera numbers, frame rates, resolution as well as the number of days storage required for your solution. It will then suggest the best recording servers for your application and supply you with a bill of materials (BOM) for the CathexisVision…

Upgradeable architecture

The CathexisVision video wall displays video on multiple monitors where operators can intelligently manage video. The camera and sequences layout can be commanded to automatically switch cameras to monitors or panels, upon a specic event. Monitor layouts are controlled via an interactive mimic panel, and it is possible to see cameras on the video wall…

Health monitoring

Optimal system performance is always of paramount importance. The Cathexis health manager provides real-time analysis of the system and can be configured to send alarms to selected recipients if problems are detected. Camera failures, hard drive analysis, environmental conditions, communication integrity, software errors, and a wide range of other parameters, are monitored to provide peace-of-mind.…


CathexisVision has an extremely powerful diagnostics suite, which provides installers with the tools to analyse the whole system environment, both in real time and historically. The capability to monitor network camera video streaming performance, recording bitrates, live viewing statistics, and network throughput, enables Cathexis partners to easily troubleshoot problems on-site. This provides real intelligence on…

Access rights management

Large sites often require multiple control rooms and tiers of management, which makes it imperative to control the access of the various users. CathexisVision software offers multiple levels of users, each with a unique username and password. Administrators can manage users across the site, or across multiple sites, from a central location

Metadatabase reporting

Cathexis is defined by its powerful integration capability and the metadatabase stores third party system information. Knowledge of, and control over, the metadatabase is achieved through scheduled metadatabase reporting, which allows users to create and edit reports, as well as search the metadatabase to extract information. In our 2020 software, extended filtering has been added to scheduled metadatabase reports, which enhances the reporting process, making it even easier for users to find the information they are looking for.

Video ageing

Video ageing has been developed in response to customer demand for video to be managed more economically, both in terms of space and size. Cathexis has answered this call by building a dynamic tool for our 2020 software. This feature allows video footage in one database to be transcoded, in a reduced size, and stored for a longer time in a second database.

Motion recording made simple

We have introduced a simplified “motion recording” feature, which enables users to very quickly add motion recording to cameras or groups of cameras. While this feature does include some advanced settings (like flare and noise reduction), it does not replace our advanced Video analytics and event management system, which remains in place for more sophisticated configurations.
