Nx Witness is an Open Video Platform.

With a Server API, and SDK's for camera, DVR, NVR, I/O devices, and even non-standard 3rd party Storage devices Nx Witness frees you from the tyranny of legacy lockups.

Nx Server API

The Nx Witness™ Server API provides a standard set of API calls for 3rd party systems. Using the Server API developers have the ability to access nearly every feature available in the system's thick client, including - but not limited to - the ability to query/manage system resources (servers, cameras, users), manage users and permissions, pull live or recorded video out of the system, generate events, create rules, control PTZ cameras, and more.

Source SDK

The Nx Witness™ SDK (Software Developer Kit) enables easy integration of any video source (live or archived) into the system. With the SDK it's possible to create a method for discovering, displaying, analyzing, and recording video from virtually any live or recorded video source - IP Cameras, encoders, NVR's, DVR's, and more. It also allows for the integration of device I/O's (inputs & outputs) and motion detection metadata.

Storage SDK

The Storage SDK enables easy integration of any potential storage. Using the Storage SDK developers can read from or write to any storage location - locally available, remote storage, and even cloud servers. Creating a storage plugin requires implementing standard functions such as I/O stream, if file exist, delete file, list of files in the folder, etc. The Storage SDK also contains an example for using an FTP server as a storage location.
