CathexisVision declared a winner for the Benchmark Innovation Awards 2018

CathexisVision, the Video Surveillance Management Software Suite from Cathexis Technologies has taken top honours for the Benchmark Innovation Awards 2018 and been announced the overall winner in the Video Surveillance Software category.

Benchmark is a globally recognised business-to-business publication for installers and integrators, which is dedicated to technological innovation and the design and implementation of smarter solutions. With an unrivalled level of experience in technology-based systems, Benchmark delivers independent and credible editorial content.

The Benchmark Innovation Awards are considered one of the most prestigious accolades in the global security sector. Innovation Award Nominees and Winners are subjected to a rigorous series of hardware and software testing, under a range of conditions. Benchmark ensures that all products are thoroughly tested to see if their performance lives up to the manufacturers specifications and claims.

CathexisVision was nominated in the Video Surveillance Software category, against other internationally acclaimed brands, including Pelco, Genetec, Milestone and Avigilon; and came out on top when Benchmark announced all the Innovation Award winners on Monday 6 August.

Other categories for the Innovation Awards include Video Surveillance Hardware, Access Control Hardware and Software, Site Protection Hardware and Software, Intelligent Systems, Business Intelligence, Infrastructure and Cybersecurity.

“We are exceptionally proud of this achievement and recognition by the global market,” says Gus Brecher, managing director of Cathexis Africa and business development director of Cathexis Technologies. “Cathexis is committed to providing customers with the most efficient and effective, tailored VMS solutions that provide maximum return on surveillance investment,” he added.

CathexisVision has proven itself in many market sectors including banking, education, mining, hospitality, manufacturing, airports and many more. The CathexisVision intuitive user interface facilitates quick and easy installation that requires minimal training and downtime.

Benchmark notes that one of the best features associated with CathexisVision is its simplicity. Sometimes end-users are intimidated by the setup, licensing, camera setup, configuration and backup procedures, but CathexisVision has taken great strides in developing one of the most seamless user experiences. Cathexis believes that when it comes to configuration, users should be looking at simple and intuitive user configuration with user-friendly help files. Other notable points included the software’s scalability and upgradeability, as well as the ability to setup multiple cameras.

CathexisVision 2018 includes Snap Search, Motion Search and Activity Trails, all of which make finding specific incidents in recorded footage extremely easy and very fast in both quiet and busy environments, improving efficiency and effectiveness.

Adjacent Camera Mapping allows operators to easily follow suspects across multiple cameras and Advanced Video Analytics significantly boosts the value of any surveillance installation. For complete user peace-of-mind, users also have access to the backup configuration and restore points.

The CathexisVision design tools allow users to design the best solution for each application. All these features, plus many more, make CathexisVision one of the most powerful and flexible VMS platforms on the market today.

“We are delighted that the market has affirmed our ongoing commitment to developing a superior solution. We would like to congratulate all the other Innovation Award Nominees and Winners, and sincerely thank Benchmark for this awesome recognition,” concluded Brecher.
