By AMAG Technology, Senior Product Manager – Video, Jim Murray

Did you hear the news? Last week we announced that we strengthened our partnership with Salient Systems and will now be offering four of their outstanding video products under the Symmetry brand: Symmetry CompleteView Video Management System, Symmetry PowerProtect NVR server platforms, Symmetry GuardStation Dual and Quad monitor video client workstations and Symmetry TouchView Mobile Apps for iOS and Android. You may be wondering why we did that. Let me tell you….

Salient Systems offers a high performance, reliable and robust video product line that our customers respect and install. We have a great relationship with Salient, as they have been an active and prominent member of our Symmetry Extended Business Solutions (EBS) program for years. Many customers from both companies were already using the technology together-either as a standalone, side-by-side, or as an integrated system. Strengthening our existing relationship by leveraging their field proven video platform in support of Symmetry made sense.

Delivering this product line to the market opens up more opportunities. Salient only does video, and they do it well. AMAG has a long and successful history of doing access control well. Marrying the proven technologies and delivering the integrated solution from one company provides customers with a one-stop shop. They can get a well-respected, video and access control product, professional customer service and technical support from one company. It’s a win-win.

With the Symmetry CompleteView VMS, AMAG customers now have more choices enabling them to provide the best overall solution from small widely distributed systems to highly dense corporate and campus security environments or a combination of both with the ability for all to be managed from one central location. In addition, we will continue to sell and support our existing Symmetry VMS, Symmetry HD Cameras and Encoders as we have many customers who continue to use and expand their existing systems. We will also continue to provide an open system and integrate with our EBS partners. Maintaining those relationships and providing an open system is very important to AMAG.

With the addition of the new Symmetry CompleteView VMS, our customers now have more to choose from. Video is such a big part of a security management system, and being able to have choices with regards to feature set, expandability and technology provides more options and customers like that.

I invite you to stop by our booth 8053 to learn more. See you in Vegas!
