CYPRESS, Calif. - (February 13, 2017) - Christie®, a leader in creating and delivering the world's best visual and audio experiences, announced a firmware update for Christie Phoenix® content management systems, which is available today.
Version 1.5 directly integrates with Milestone’s XProtect®, a leading open platform IP video management software (VMS). Christie Phoenix obtains H.264 camera data directly from the XProtect recording server, and automated video wall control is initiated from the XProtect event server. Christie Phoenix is easy to integrate with XProtect, creating a unified solution for video management and control room operations.
Two new operating modes are available with this firmware update: standard security and stringent security. While most users will rely on the standard security mode, the stringent mode is ideal for high-security environments.
“Phoenix content management systems provide exceptional security features including strong password management; encrypted connections, system configuration and logged data; and system monitoring and threat notifications,” says Karl Johnson, senior product manager, Christie. “With the introduction of this firmware update, we’re building on a strong and secure base to offer Christie Phoenix customers the best system for monitoring critical systems.”
Christie Phoenix security enhancements enable client systems to comply with NERC/CIP requirements. Control rooms and operations centers, in public utilities, public services, security and surveillance, transportation, and telecommunications, all benefit from the security features provided by Christie Phoenix.
