Video Insight Releases Its New VMS Client for Mac


HOUSTON, Texas – September 15, 2014 – Video Insight, a leading developer of enterprise-class video management software (VMS), announced the release of VI Monitor for Mac. This free VMS client for Mac allows users to access live and recorded video from any cameras on the surveillance system using an Apple computer.

“Apple users love their Mac’s and are not excited when the VMS software is only accessible from a browser or from a product that was built for Windows. To address this, we challenged our Apple Mobile Team to build a native Mac client that they would like to use,” said James Whitcomb, Chief Technology Officer of Video Insight. “I’m happy to report that this new client gives Mac users easy access to the cameras in a familiar Apple style.”

VI Monitor for Mac provides users a native application that includes the most common features including high quality images, thumbnails to locate cameras, preset groups of cameras, facility maps, and snapshots for quick review in an investigation. The new client allows:
Full Resolution H.264 images
View cameras from any Video Insight Server
Integrated Active Directory login
Recorded clips via Motion based thumbnails or quick rewind
Control PTZ and select presets
Facility maps with live thumbnails and more
