C3™ CMS takes video management to the next level. You are in complete command to control all your video surveillance systems in one intuitive interface. Easy-to-program alerts let you take action in real-time and manage the health of your devices.
CCIP™ System Encryption
Camera streams are protected when a user ID and password are used with an NVR. The additional CCIP™ (Closed Circuit IP) encryption is activated when the VMAX IP Plus™ system sends a request for an encrypted stream from the camera. The camera then encrypts its RTSP stream a second time, using the encryption's user ID and password. The result is a secured and encrypted RTSP stream that can be read only by the requesting VMAX IP Plus™ NVR.

Easy and secure peer-to-peer remote connection without opening ports.
