Aimetis Symphony™ Outperforms Competition in Video Management and Video Analytics Product Review
SecurityDreamer conducts 'hands-on' comparison of industry leading video surveillance solutions
Waterloo, Canada - 2009-09-22
Aimetis Corp., a global leader in intelligent video management software today announced that Aimetis Symphony™ Enterprise outperformed both Milestone's and Verint's video management and video analytics solutions in an independent product review conducted by Steve Hunt of SecurityDreamer.
The study is the first 'hands-on' product review to quantitatively evaluate the industry leading solutions that combine video management and video analytics software. More than 100 points of criteria were evaluated across five categories – architecture, performance, ease-of-use, administration and value. Aimetis Symphony™ scored 4.4 out of a possible 5 points, while Verint and Milestone each scored 3.5.
"Aimetis successfully responds to the desire of end-users to use video as an information tool for security and business intelligence purposes rather than to simply store unstructured video data for potential post-event investigation." says Steve Hunt of SecurityDreamer. "The way Aimetis Symphony leverages its analyzed video data to create immediate and actionable information for the customer is the best I have seen in the industry."
Aimetis Symphony™ is designed to provide a seamless migration path for transitioning from analog CCTV to intelligent video management by combining robust features for network video management with high performance video analytics algorithms - all in one unified software platform.
"What I really like about Aimetis Symphony is that it is a single product with a single user interface. It is clear the software was designed with analytics in mind rather than after the fact as a separate console, plug-in or product" adds Hunt. "This fact alone makes Aimetis more usable and cost-effective than the alternatives."
"Steve Hunt is highly regarded for his insight into the technology trends and best practices that will shape the future of the security industry," says Marc Holtenhoff, CEO, Aimetis Corp. "We are pleased with the results of the study as it confirms Aimetis is achieving its mission to provide easy-to-use video surveillance software with measurable benefits."
