SVC Marketing is Excited to Announce BCDVideo to our Line Card Offering

Last month SVC Marketing was invited to meet with BCDVideo at their headquarters in Buffalo Grove, IL. For security integrator’s like yourself, BCDVideo is a trusted source for award-winning security products like access control,  video surveillance recording servers, environmentally hardened productsnetworking products, GPU servers, and workstations.

They have been doing well in our region but they have been lacking feet on the street and want more localized face-to-face meetings and training with integrators’ to get you more familiar with their line of products.

Since BCDVideo and Seneca Data are direct competitors, we have resigned Seneca Data. The product flexibility, dedication and focus to the security industry was something we couldn’t ignore.

With that being said, we here at SVC Marketing, are extremely excited about the opportunity to add BCDVideo to our manufacturer line card, and we look forward to meeting with you soon in 2019 to discuss BCDVideo further.

Below I have written an introduction about the BCDVideo product line, and we at SVC Marketing look forward to meeting with you in 2019 about their offering.

BCDVideo sells all factory direct and their credit application is below for your use and review. When you have time, please complete the application so we are good to go for 2019. Also, I put their storage/bandwidth calculator link below for your use Contact your local SVC Marketing Rep. directly, and he can have the factory do your quotes/calculations as needed.

Every project is unique and its success depends on many variables including which manufacturer partner you choose.

BCDVideo’s value throughout the life of your project not only reduces your risk, but also saves you time and money.

Ocularis 5 – Recorder Patch Update November 2018

The following improvements were made in the latest automatic Recorder Patch update:  

  • Changed the default value of the Stream Network Timeout setting from 5 to 10 seconds for Axis cameras using the Axis Smart Driver, in order to maintain consistency with the previously hard-coded value (applies to Ocularis v5.6)
  • Fixed an issue that in some cases caused the Recorder Manager to crash when attempting to use the Multi Configuration feature on devices using the ONVIF driver (applies to Ocularis v5.6)
  • An incorrectly configured Motion Detection Module will no longer lead to high CPU and memory utilization (applies to Ocularis v5.6)
  • Updated license file backwards compatibility (applies to Ocularis v5.1 – Ocularis v5.6)

Your Ocularis 5 system will automatically update the Recorder if configured to do so and network connectivity is available. The Recorder Patch Update is also available on the OnSSI Software Downloads page.

Whether it’s a single alarm transmitter or hundreds of security sensors across an entire site, the Inovonics range of wireless motion detectors, universal transmitters, environmental sensors, and mobile duress devices, integrate seamlessly with your ProtegeWX or ProtegeGX system to increase safety and security.

The integration with Inovonics takes you beyond the realm of traditional access control and intrusion detection to effectively secure your assets and protect your people without the wires. Wireless detection devices enable you to quickly detect unauthorized entry or activity within a secure area, identifying when doors and windows are opened, when an area is breached by an intruder, and when glass is broken in a window, door, or display case. Mobile duress devices provide an additional layer of protection, offering the perfect solution for schools, hospitals, and even commercial buildings where the protection of people is a main focus.

Key advantages:

  • Simplifies installation by utilizing wireless technology
  • Extends the reach of intrusion detection to areas where running wires is difficult or expensive
  • Monitors the state of Inovonics devices – including low battery levels – using Protege trouble inputs
  • Future proofs your system by enabling you to easily add additional devices following the initial installation
  • Have motion detection and camera input events appear in the ProtegeGX event log
  • Increases employee safety and building security
