TRENDnet Introduces New SecurView Pro IP Camera Management Software

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

TRENDnet recently announced the availability of the new SecurView Pro IP camera management software, which the company will provide with every new TRENDnet IP camera introduced within the market.   

SecurView Pro has been designed to provide extensive camera viewing options, which include preset viewing modes, and custom viewing layouts, as well as a full screen mode. The user can hide the side, top, and bottom tool bars to expand the video viewing field. Furthermore, the software allows the user to drag and drop live feeds to a new location and define camera cycle viewing sequences. The software also allows the user to force video with motion directly to the front of the viewing screen.

In a release, Sonny Su, technology director for TRENDnet, said that, "Free management software included with IP cameras is often cited as having high CPU loading and few advanced features. Our goal when we started redesigning TRENDnet's camera software was to set a new standard for performance and functionality. I think customers who experience SecurView Pro software will agree that we hit a home run."

Each new camera that is introduced will now feature the SecurView Pro software, which has been developed to function with existing TRENDnet IP camera models. The software will also be included within the existing IP camera packaging soon. If a user already has or has recently purchased a compatible camera with the older software version, they can download the new software free from the company’s website.

SecurView Pro works with Windows 7 and Microsoft Server 2008, provides low CPU loading, and can easily handle up to 32 TRENDnet IP cameras.

Users can use the software to set weekly recording schedules, motion detection recording and program any shape motion detection areas. Furthermore, they can set alarm system event triggers with their IP cameras and set date, time, and text overlays for each camera or set mask overlays to hide sensitive sections.

A search and playback functionality has also been included in the new offering. The user can use a navigation timeline to quickly view recorded content by shifting through information about when the video and motion was recorded. Additionally, the Map feature can be used to map cameras onto an image such as Google Maps.
