D-Link Teams With Two Leading Security Camera Software Companies to Offer Powerful Management Features for Existing IP Surveillance Systems

Affordable Software Platforms Take Small-to-Medium Scale Network Video Recorder (NVR) Systems to Enterprise-Level Functionality

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - December 22, 2008) - D-Link, the end-to-end computer network solutions provider for consumers and businesses, today made available professional, state-of-the-art software to manage, record and monitor single-site network video recorder (NVR) IP surveillance camera systems. When combined with D-Link's line of network cameras, the offerings provide an ideal solution for the small-to-medium business (SMB) seeking the advanced functionality and manageability found in enterprise systems, but without the hefty price tag.

D-Link has teamed with Aimetis Corporation, a global leader in integrated intelligent video software, to offer an integrated video management and video analytics platform designed to help manage large amounts of raw video data:

--  Symphony™ is an award winning video management and analytics
    software platform for analog and network cameras. With an open, standards-
    based architecture as its foundation, combined with the world's best
    analytics, Symphony provides the product roadmap to help migrate analog
    "record only" installations to intelligent network video for security and
    business intelligence.
    

D-Link has also paired with On-Net Surveillance Systems Inc. (OnSSI), the market leader in intelligent, open architecture IP-based video surveillance software, to offer two comprehensive IP video surveillance control and management software platforms -- NetDVR™ and ProSight-SMB™:

--  NetDVR is a high-end IP-Surveillance recording and management NVR
    software suite for medium-scale single-server deployments. It offers the
    most robust recording engine in its class, as well as synchronous multiple-
    camera playback, motion detection and flexible video export tools.
--  ProSight-SMB is an IP video surveillance platform that delivers
    impressive functionalities and tools found only in enterprise systems, at a
    very competitive price. It is the ideal solution for small-medium
    businesses that require reliable multi-camera viewing & archiving, playback
    analysis, remote access, audio capabilities and more.

"We are pleased to be able to bring feature-rich camera management software to budget conscious small businesses seeking professional IP video surveillance capabilities."

D-Link's end-to-end video surveillance systems are becoming the preference over analog camera systems to send automated alerts and record video when security events occur, record to low cost disk storage, index and search-enable archived video and audio, flexibly adjust to handle different schedules, personnel alerts, device alerts, and granular event triggers.
