Arecont Vision releases Contera Web Service solutions


Arecont Vision has launched the Contera line of video surveillance software, cloud-managed web services, and cloud-managed video recorders. Contera offers a complete, integrated solution for traditional local or advanced cloud-managed video surveillance project requirements.

The Contera Total Video Surveillance Solution is composed of megapixel cameras (Arecont Vision Mega and ConteraIP single- and multi-sensor families), advanced video management system software (Contera VMS), a range of video recorders and NVRs (Contera CMR), and powerful cloud-based web services (Contera WS). Contera VMS, Contera WS, and Contera CMR are now available. Conteramobile is also available from app stores. The final component of the solution, Contera megapixel cameras, will become widely available in coming weeks.

The Contera VMS offers Standard (16 cameras), Premium (64 cameras), and Professional (128 cameras) licence choices with a range of advanced features. Arecont Vision systems integrators can download a Contera 30 day free trial licence. End users can obtain a trial license through their systems integrator. Contera WS (web services) enables recording to occur locally for reliability and optimised frame rates, while leveraging remote management and uploading clips of interest securely in the cloud. This eliminates the need for local administration and allows secure access and administration from anywhere.

The Contera CMR series offers four customisable cloud management recorder platform choices. They are the Contera CMR NVR appliance (2U form factor, 8 or 16 PoE ports, up to 20Tb storage), Compact Desktop NVR Server (maximum of 32 channels and 24Tb storage with optional RAID 5), Compact NVR server (2U form factor, maximum of 64 channels and 24Tb storage with optional RAID 5), and the High Performance NVR Server (extended 2U form factor, maximum of 128 channels and 80Tb storage with optional RAID 5)
