Arecont Vision launches ConteraVMS, ConteraWS web services, and ConteraCMR cloud managed video recorders


Arecont Vision, the global provider of IP-based megapixel camera and video surveillance solutions, announces the immediate availability of the Contera line of video surveillance software, cloud-managed web services, and cloud-managed video recorders for customer ordering. 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 (ConteraVMS), a range of video recorders and NVRs (ConteraCMR), and powerful cloud-based web services (ConteraWS). ConteraVMS, ConteraWS, and ConteraCMR are now available. ConteraMobile is also available from the Apple and Google app stores. The final component of the solution, Contera megapixel cameras, will become widely available in coming weeks.

The ConteraVMS offers Standard (16 cameras), Premium (64 cameras), and Professional (128 cameras) license choices with a range of advanced features. Arecont Vision systems integrators can download a Contera 30-Day Free Trial License. End users can obtain a trial license through their systems integrator. ConteraWS (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 ConteraCMR series offers four customisable cloud management recorder platform choices. They are the ConteraCMR 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).
