Delivers superior video quality and extensive video intelligence
applications suite to help customers reduce fraud and improve

OTTAWA, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – March Networks®, the # 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((TM)), 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((TM)) 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.
