OTTAWA—March Networks, a provider of IP video solutions, has launched its new 8000 Series hybrid network video recorders (NVRs), according to a company statement.

The platform, which supports both advanced video surveillance and business applications, features centralized video management capability and scalability, the company said.

“They ensure organizations can transition to all-IP video without sacrificing existing analog investments, and are engineered to support our video intelligence applications and deliver real business benefits to our customers,” said Net Payne, chief marketing officer for March Networks. “In addition, we’ve built the recorders with our channel partners in mind—introducing industry-first features and tools that help them save time and cut service costs in the field.”

The platform comes with a QR code on the front panel, which, when used in conjunction with the company’s free GURU smartphone application, gives customers instant access to product information and troubleshooting tutorial support in the field.

Available in four models, the platforms support up to 32 IP cameras or any hybrid camera combination with as many as 16 analog cameras. Embedded in the system is a Linux operating system designed to protect data and safeguard hardware functionality.
