Video Management Systems

Record, Manage & View Camera Footage with Ease

Internet Protocol (IP) cameras, encoders, and network recorders have taken over market share from legacy analog systems. Their advent has contributed to the popularity of Video Management Systems (VMS).  VMS software offers live viewing, storage and retrieval of video sequences. Advanced VMS software contains features such as:

Simultaneous viewing and recording of live video from multiple cameras

Several recording modes: continuous, scheduled, on alarm and on motion detection

Capacity to handle high frame rates and large amounts of data

Multiple search functions for recorded events

Remote access via a Web browser, client software, and even smartphones and tablets

Control of PTZ and dome cameras

Alarm management functions such as sound alarm, pop-up windows, or e-mail

Full duplex, real-time audio support

Video intelligence


Storage Technologies For Video Surveillance Systems

The special requirements that derive from the conversion from analog to digital imaging are largely directed by the certainty that digital images can go beyond the resolution limits of digital IP cameras.   High Definition and high resolution IP cameras correspond to more detail and higher quality evidence in surveillance video.  This also means that each IP camera is likely to generate larger images that require the correct technology solutions to efficiently store, playback, search and manage.

Physical Security Information Management


For many organizations, VMS software is the only thing needed. However, other organizations need more than Physical Security to protect their employees, customers, and property. They need to be situationally aware of their environment, have proper operating procedures in place, and maintain an audit trail logging all activities and actions. Physical Security Information System (PSIM) can help your organization be more situationally aware. The PSIM collects information from various disparate systems, correlates and analyzes the data. This includes events and alarms from:

Video Surveillance

Access Control Transaction (POS)

Intrusion Detection

Cyber Security


License Plate Recognition (LPR)

Building Automation (BAS)

Video Analytics

Fire and Life Safety

Traffic Management


Perimeter Detection

Radiation Sensors

Various other networks and systems that organizations may utilize
