3xLOGIC announces European launch of VIGIL video management system

3xLOGIC, the provider of integrated and intelligent security solutions, has announced the availability of its VIGIL video management system (VMS) in Europe. 3xLOGIC aims to replicate the success of VIGIL Stateside and is targeting those practising security professionals who want all the power of integrated video and access control, but without the stress and cost of a complex system set-up.

VIGIL’s enterprise grade VMS is the driving force behind the VIGIL range of network video recorders (NVRs) and Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras. Its easy set-up wizard guides installers and end users through the configuration process, helping to define network parameters, system identification information and camera profiles quickly and efficiently.

Events can be viewed via a PC or mobile app, allowing end users to respond to alarms and view live footage from any location, while SmartSearch functionality enables individuals to quickly identify and review events. With 3xLOGIC’s VIGIC central management software, it’s also possible to monitor server connectivity, camera status, storage details and server settings. 3xLOGIC’s RapidStream technology and SubStream motion detection functionality offers high resolution, while substantially reducing bandwidth demands.

All VIGIL NVRs come pre-configured with VIGIL VMS software. 3xLOGIC’s PoE-enabled IP dome, bullet, cube, 360°, thermal imaging and PTZ cameras are designed to suit any application. The easy set-up wizard provides plug-and-play capability for easy deployment. No IP video experience is necessary to start recording or viewing video.

End users can easily narrow down points of interest within larger playback clips by creating a SmartSearch mask over an area of an image. Surveillance data can also be routinely archived without the need to perform the task manually. Advanced reporting features including heat mapping, restricting and locking video are also available.

Integrated VMS and access control

End users are increasingly demanding integrated VMS and access control. VIGIL can be seamlessly integrated with 3xLOGIC’s infinias access control solution, which is designed to easily manage any size of project ranging from a single door to an enterprise-wide installation of hundreds of doors. With no wires from VIGIL to infinias, configuration is carried out through software using an automated, cloud-based programming tool. This offers a cost-effective way in which to create one intuitive solution whereby video is automatically linked with access control events and alarms.

Offering a level of functionality previously only available in solutions designed for larger projects, VIGIL removes the need for expensive technical labour. It therefore opens up a new revenue stream for installers who work primarily with SMEs, or who wish to start offering an integration-based service for their end user customers.

VIGIL is available through the existing PAC channel, with full access to its technical support, meaning that customers can rely on a tried and trusted supply chain that delivers products on time, every time.

“The response to 3xLOGIC’s presence in Europe has been phenomenal,” commented David Hughes, the company’s global product manager. “The availability of VIGIL is the next step in our strategy to redefine the way in which security systems are designed, specified and configured across the continent. Suitable for almost any budget, VIGIL is designed to be fully integrated to provide end users with comprehensive, cost-effective and state-of-the-art video and access control infrastructures that are easy to manage, simple to install and scaleable in line with changing needs within a given organisation.”
