Surveillance Station 6.1, Synology's NVR Package for Edge Recording and Center Management

Press release date: November 27, 2013

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Synology America Corp. is proud to announce the latest version of Surveillance Station with version 6.1. Surveillance Station is Synology's fully-integrated network video recording (NVR) solution. Version 6.1, introduces numerous additions and enhancements that make Surveillance Station a more robust NVR, and combines the award-winning storage solutions of Synology.

Edge recording and center management are powerful tools to help mitigate bandwidth concerns, and maximize the storage of remote cameras.

Surveillance Station 6.1 introduces the Synology Web Object, allowing Windows browsers (Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer) to function without Java. It Integrates with Windows Active Directory and LDAP for improved control over permissions.

On-screen controls now appear within active windows, enabling greater control in live-view. There is now support for over 1700 cameras, and 6.1 also introduces Device Pack to speed camera integration.

Additional features include:

Water marking – invisible watermarking validated through evidence integrity authenticator
iOS and Android support – for mobile access to your Surveillance Solution 

More granular controls for video/image quality, resolution, and FPS
Time slicing – for quickly scanning large blocks of footage
Smart search – for quickly finding specific events

"We're very excited for the release of Surveillance Station 6.1," said Joshua Wise, Senior Product Specialist at Synology America Corp. "With the Surveillance Web object removing the need of Java for Windows clients, it should significantly improve the viewing experience. Additionally, the CMS capabilities make edge recording even more practical."
