Releases New Version of NVR Software

By: John Honovich, Published on Jul 07, 2009

ACTi has released a new version of their NVR software (v. 2.2). There are 2 big changes: (1) they have separated their client application from their server application [this is not an innovation, it simply matches the expected architecture of modern video surveillance system. Secondly, and most importantly, this client software (called NVR workstation) as being developed as the unified interface for "upcoming CMS servers." See their CMS beta page for details. It will be interesting to see how far ACTi goes in developing VMS software and how it is positioned to compete against their main partners like Genetec and Milestone. Already, ACTi has taken to Twitter to compare their offering to Milestone though it is hard to believe that ACTi is anywhere close to where Milestone or focused VMS offerings are.
