Integration with Lenel NVR and TruVision Recorders

Bridge to Your Video Future

The Prism® system is tightly integrated with the Lenel NVR, adopting industry-standard RTP/RTSP transport protocols resulting in high-performance video storage and retrieval. This combination allows users to purchase storage as a software only package for deployment on Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) server hardware or as benchmarked and optimized hardware-based turnkey solution. Through LNVR, Prism can view and configure hundreds of different models of third-party and Interlogix® cameras.

Select TruVision® Network Video Recorders (NVRs) by Interlogix can also be integrated with the Prism VMS. By downloading a driver pack, users are able to access and unlock recorded tracks via the Prism dashboard. Users can set up events for cameras connected directly to select TruVision NVRs for simple plug-and-play configurations. Ideal for small- to mid-scale applications, these recorders provide full support with the Prism Video Matrix.
