Revolutionary “Flex” UI.

In a world filled with traditional, stagnant user
interfaces the Nx Witness “Flex” user interface
brings a fresh new approach to configuring,
controlling, and monitoring IP Video systems.
With a single unified interface for administration
and monitoring Nx Witness gives users the
ability to interact quickly and meaningfully with
their IP video system.
Users can create and control an unlimited
number of custom tabbed layouts, create and
administer users, detect and control IP cameras,
search for and share video events, monitor and
troubleshoot system components, and more!
In short – Nx Witness has a unified interface for
unified management of all your IP video needs.

Built for Users

Nx Witness was concieved and created for
one purpose – usability.
Installation, setup, and system expansion is
simple and takes just minutes with instant
automatic camera and server discovery.
Drag & drop usability makes it easy to interact
with cameras, servers, and any local media file.
Multiple search options – keyword search, smart
motion search, time-slice preview search, and
calendar search make finding event video a
simple task.
Menus are intuitive and include helpful dialogues
for users who are configuring or managing the
system. A built-in context-sensitive help system
makes learning individual features easy to learn.

Painless to Maintain.

With free upgrades and one-click system-wide
updates Nx Witness makes maintaining your
IP Video system pain-free.
The cross-platform nature of Nx Witness –
with apps for Windows, Linux, MacOSX,
Android, iOS – means users can choose their
preferred storage and control hardware.
And with native support for any ONVIF profile S
device, any RTSP-enabled device, and even a
public SDK & API for integrating new devices and
interacting with different systems, Nx Witness
reduces initial total cost of ownership both in the
short and long-term.

No Single Point of Failure.

Nx Witness’ Industry-first server-hive
architecture creates an IP Video Management
Platform where every single server continuously
synchronizes system information with every
other server in the system – including:
– System Configurations
– Server Settings
– Camera Settings
– User Rights
– Rules, Events, & Actions
With Nx Witness server hive archicture users can
connect to any system server at any time to view
and manage the entire system.



Automatic Camera Failover.

Another benefit of Nx Witness’ revolutionary
new server hive architecture is the system’s
ability to instantly recognize servers which
are no longer available – and then to quickly
adapt by moving cameras to another system
Users can configure which servers in their
system should act as faillover servers – and
which servers should not.
Best of all Automatic Camera Failover – a feature
which costs tens of thousands of dollars in
competitive solutions – is absolutely free
in Nx Witness.

One Click System-Wide Updates.

Yet another amazing first-in-the-industry feature
from Nx Witness enabled by a server hive
architecture is One-Click System-Wide Updates.
Perhaps the most challenging part of maintaining
an IP Video Management platform is managing
the update process. Traditionally for users with
multiple sites or large systems this process can
take days or weeks and cost thousands of dollars
and hundreds of man hours to complete.
With Nx Witness users are able to upgrade their
entire system – no matter the size or locations –
with the click of a button.


Nx Server Hive Architecture.
A revolutionary new approach.

One Click System Wide Updates

System Administrators can connect to the
Nx Witness system – either remotely or locally –
and upgrade their entire system with the click
of a button – saving money and increasing
the ability to adop the latest technology as it
is released.

Automatic Camera Failover.

In the instance of a server hardware failure Nx Witness
automatically migrates cameras from the failed server
to an available failover server – making sure system
cameras are always online and always recording.

No Single-Point of Failure.

Nx Witness users can connect to any available
server – locally or remotely – to view and manage
their Nx Witness system.
