Key features

64 bit core

Use full capacity of your hardware with CORTROL’s 64 bit core. No more limitations on application level.

Video Wall

Get the most out of your video wall in the control room. CORTROL Video Wall offers improved configuration and functionality, as well as the ability to easily manage large-display installations. It is vital for operating large-scale video surveillance systems, especially where the ability to easily examine the area and quickly react to alarm events is essential.

Video Content Analysis

Exploit the full potential of your video surveillance system with video content analysis. Not only does it improve the functionality of your surveillance, the ability to analyse large amounts of data to determine a specific pattern for the exact task also increases security and safety and is useful for many other areas of your enterprise, like HR and marketing.

Event and Action Manager

Specify your desired outcome of your video surveillance system’s operation. Determine how software reacts to any event caught on camera and how it turns them into an automated process. Send emails, activate DI/DO, interact with any other software or just bring the attention of the operator to the camera that requires their immediate action. The functionality can be used not just for a single event, but a set of sequenced events to get rid of false alarms and improve the efficiency of your surveillance system.

Streaming server

Get permanent access to live streaming and archive video, no matter where you are in the world. CORTROL’s streaming server allows quick and easy access to your cameras via web browser and/or mobile application.

Edge Recording

Synchronise all your data with IP device storage. By doing this, even if the network connection with any camera is lost, your data will still be recorded by the camera. It will be transferred in full to your server as soon as the network connection is re-established.

Advanced Health Monitoring

Keep your finger on the pulse of all of your hardware, minimising the risk of inconvenient surprises, and control the state of the whole video surveillance system.

Organization Hierarchy

The functionality allows the construction of a more structured hierarchy of system rights and privileges among users within an organisation. The group’s administrator (or sub-admin) rights are also specific for each group, thus valid only for the chosen scope of cameras and servers.


Automated recovery of your system in the event of a sudden server failure. CORTROL Global carefully tracks operations of all servers, and, if it is detected that any of the servers have failed, it quickly activates a spare server to perform the actions that the malfunctioning server was performing prior to failing.


This all-inclusive visual overview provides a complete examination of the entire installation of cameras, providing an immediate visual verification. All the alerts are integrated with the maps and can be set up so that they can be viewed on the overview as well – you are able to immediately specify the location of the alarm event.


Enjoy full use of the multicast environment, transmitting to different destination devices (both servers and cameras). The functionality allows for fully integrated work with large enterprise environments using Active Directory or LDAP technology.

Archive replication

Make your local recording server into a buffer server. In large enterprises, this allows for convenient local usage and scheduled or constant data transfer to Central Data Center, whenever the network is available.
