WebView, an open web-based platform for fixed surveillance, can connect to IP cameras, DVRs, NVRs and video servers from different vendors and access all components from a single browser. Users can quickly respond to security events, gather business intelligence and remotely monitor general activity at any location, from any location. WebView is compatible with PC and Mac systems. Users can configure the system within minutes, using Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Chrome, Safari, and/or Opera browsers to establish connections with cameras and recorders. Setup time is further minimized with no software, plug-ins or active controls to install.
