At this year’s InfoComm, Visionary Solutions (Booth 3914) will debut their PacketAV Sentinel software. PacketAV Sentinel allows network-based AV monitoring with real-time alerting. With a user-friendly, single-screen GUI, Sentinel provides network AV endpoint visibility and immediately indicates faults, identifying failing endpoints by name. Its flexible, customizable, real-time alerts (via email, SMS and SNMP) can be configured to match your specifications and thresholds.
Sentinel can provide Dante level and status monitoring with real-time audio level metering via HTML5 browsers and can provide real-time monitoring of Visionary Solutions Duet-series enterprise AV-over-IP devices. Sentinel can be deployed entirely on premises or in a hybrid cloud using a lightweight local gateway, and it has an API that enables integration into other enterprise-wide monitoring and control systems, making detailed Dante and AV-over-IP status available to existing solutions.
To monitor and manage a network, Sentinel relies on Sentinel Agents, which are intelligent and lightweight data-collector devices that run on the local network 24/7. The Sentinel Agent automatically discovers and monitors all network AV devices that are attached to the network. When changes occur, the Agent communicates essential data to the Sentinel cloud or local manager via a secure socket. The Agent also listens for remote connection requests from the secure Sentinel cloud. The Agent is the only device that communicates outside the client network. Sentinel Agents can be deployed in two ways: You can purchase a turnkey hardware appliance or they can be deployed as a Virtual Machine for enterprise clients.
Visionary Solutions is here.
