Scale & centralize your video management system

Operate all of your services from one unique management system. You can access distributed environments and remotely control centralized environments with NMX™ in just a few clicks.

Save time on service creation

Gain efficiency using the template and wizard-based system setup directly within NMX to configure each product and interface. You can also easily modify and deploy new channel lineups on the fly using the input-to-output service-oriented user interface. Save time creating your services thanks to a three-panel layout with a simple service overview.

Grow & scale your system

You can grow and scale your system in tandem with the environment it supports. As the managed environment grows in scope and scale, you can distribute the NMX processing across multiple network groups or multiple servers, as necessary.

Improve system resiliency

The fail-safe NMX allows for flexible device and source redundancy management and fully secured administration. You can analyze your detailed audit logs, alarm and event reports to identify system-wide trends and improve overall network stability.

Interoperability with external systems

It's easy to interact with external systems and devices thanks to standard interfaces supported by NMX. Interconnect external devices and third-party system for automation, CAS, and umbrella management.
