ACTI CMS Software Released

By: John Honovich, Published on Jul 14, 2009

ACTi is expanding into larger scale video management with their release of a CMS solution that manages distributed ACTi NVRs. This provides enterprise management and centralized monitoring of ACTi's Enterprise NVR line, but not their Professional series. The CMS also will not manage 3rd party NVRs. The MSRP of the CMS is $2,000 per server. For distributed deployments of 8-16 cameras, the total MSRP cost will be about $125-$250 (given that unlimited number of servers running Enterprise can be deployed at no charge; the only cost is for the CMS license).

This is part of ACTi's public stated intentions to "offer a complete solution in both hardware and software" and to provide "one-stop shopping". This reflects a larger trend of companies providing packaged solutions with ACTi targeting the lower side of the market. As camera companies expand their packages and increase competition with VMS vendors, it will be interesting to see how relationships with VMS providers evolve (or regress).
