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. The update offers new security
operating modes ideal for standard and stringent security environments.

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

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 centres, in public utilities,
public services, security and surveillance, transportation, and telecommunications,
all benefit from the security features provided by Christie Phoenix.
