BNL-Gruppo BNP Paribas, an Italian financial institution, has selected March Networks’s networked video recording platforms and management software for advanced security in its retail branches across Italy. The bank will also deploy the company’s embedded video analytics to extend its monitoring capability in select locations.
March Networks has said that its software will enable BNL to increase efficiency by centralizing its video network management and security operations. Using new video compression standards, including H.264 and MPEG4, it delivers quality, frame rate video transmission without impacting network bandwidth.
Fabio Scarpelli, security officer of BNL, said: The March Networks solution meets all of our key criteria. It is able to provide us with outstanding video quality, advanced analytic applications, and the ability to access live and archived video securely from any networked location, including our central monitoring station, without affecting network availability or the transmission of our critical business data.
Peter Strom, president and CEO of March Networks, said: Our IP video solutions deliver the high reliability, performance and video quality required by financial institutions worldwide. They allow these organizations to benefit from the latest IP video technologies while protecting investments in existing surveillance infrastructure. We look forward to working with BNL and further expanding our presence in the European market in fiscal 2009.
