Cortech Developments integrates Datalog MV solution with Hikvision’s cameras

Cortech Developments – the provider of software integration solutions for building, fire and security systems – has integrated its Datalog MV solution with video cameras from video surveillance specialist Hikvision. Datalog MV operates with the latest version of Datalog and significantly enhances the control, flexibility and stability of managing a wide range of camera systems.

Datalog is a modular software suite that operates as a single or multi-user graphical user interface, providing local and remote site monitoring and control of building, fire, security and energy systems. Datalog assists in reducing risk and cost while maximising efficiency, situation awareness and accountability.

Datalog MV allows multiple CCTV brands to run as individual ‘plug-ins’ which ensures overall system stability is maximised and the exposure to risk and downtime reduced.

This integration with Hikvision allows Datalog MV to show operators live or recorded video. When an alarm occurs on Datalog, any number of cameras can be automatically associated as well as other more complex causes and effects. Events can then be replayed on the Datalog screen to show the pre-, post- and live event video for instant verification. If PTZ cameras are in use then these can also be managed and controlled through Datalog.

Jason Blundell, head of sales and marketing for Cortech Developments, explained to Risk Xtra: “We’re excited to welcome Hikvision into our portfolio of integration partners and we’re very much looking forward to working with them. The partnership between Hikvision and Cortech Developments demonstrates our ongoing commitment to offer end users flexibility and the widest choice when they’re selecting an integrated software platform.”

Justin Hollis, marketing director for Hikvision UK & Ireland, responded: “This partnership represents a powerful combination of technologies, reliability, performance and compatibility. We’re particularly proud to have integrated our surveillance cameras with Cortech Developments in order to enable effective and scaleable security operations for practising end users in a new way.”
