Luxriot EVO A&E Specification updated August 15th 2017

© A&H Software House Inc.

General :

Luxriot EVO is a highly stable software, easy to use on any network and very easy to deploy with the advanced Auto Detection feature for IP cameras. Luxriot EVO also provides extreme flexibility as it can manage unlimited servers, sites, and cameras remotely, quickly and efficiently. Luxriot EVO is an open architecture Video Management Software (VMS) for Windows. Luxriot EVO accepts MJPG, MPEG-4, H.264 and H.265, as well as Full HD and megapixel video streams from Network (IP) cameras, encoders and capture boards. This, along with Luxriot EVO client-server architecture, allows you to build hybrid scalable solutions from a single NVR/DVR to multiple servers handling thousands of cameras.Luxriot EVO accepts video streams from Network (IP) cameras from 90+ manufacturers including all major manufacturers such as Axis, Arecont Vision, Pixord, SONY, JVC, Panasonic, IQinVision, Toshiba, Zavio, Acti, Vivotek and UDP (more than 4000+ models supported) Luxriot EVO also works with several DVR cards, like H.264, SDI "HDCCTV" (up to 960fps and up to 64 channels at D1 resolution) boards from UDP and other manufacturers.Moreover Luxriot EVO is considered to be a hybrid system, since a DVR card with analog cameras, IP cameras, webcams and IP megapixel cameras, could be combined together on a single server.

Optimized and designed for Microsoft Windows 2008/2012/2016/Windows 7/8.1 and Windows 10.

Surveillance from anywhere: multiple client options are supported, including Windows-based Luxriot EVO Monitor, Web browser client, Luxriot EVO Mobile client app for IOS, and Android, and OS X client. Web client for Luxriot EVO Streaming Server supports Chrome, FireFox, Safari, iOS, Android, etc.

Full-featured Client application – All functions, without exceptions may be controlled both locally and remotely (only one user interface). Anyone operating the client application can connect to the server, access live and recorded video, change settings, etc. in accordance with granted user rights. It enables quick navigation between cameras from any server. Full range of editions: for all needs and budgets from home users to large enterprises

32- and 64-bit support for all components.

Multi-Language Support: English, German, French, Italian, Russian, Latvian, Polish and Spanish localisations, with many more to be added.
Enterprise Scalability and Monitoring: All functions such as: Screen Mapping, Layout Sequencing, Alert Notifications, PTZ Control, Camera Configuration, Video Wall control and more without exception may be accessed and administered both locally and remotely allowing management and administration for an unlimited number of servers around the world.

Flexible Event & Action configurator enables you to manage events and notifications such as emails, text messages and more tasks for multiple servers from a single, user- friendly interface.

Luxriot EVO API/SDK Included: Developed for future. It allows to integrate third party applications. Custom programming and exclusive features also available. Luxriot EVO offers customisable integration with other software systems in form of software development kit (SDK), Luxriot EVO ClientKit.
