Indigo Vision – A Wise Investment In Security


Video surveillance systems rank high among the priorities of people who want to protect their assets, data, business, and personnel. Maybe this has to do with the association people make with wanting to physically watch over their loved ones and possessions that they value most. But in truth video properly configured surveillance systems provide much more benefits than watchmen ever could. Comprehensive video surveillance management software like Indigo Vision can do a lot to improve your company’s security. In fact, surveillance systems have become so powerful that a recent article expressed an opinion its use may need to be tempered to preserve personal privacy.

How Indigo Vision Watches Over Your Company

Indigo Vision’s control system is so flexible it can manage systems with anywhere from 1 to 100,000 cameras using the same video management features. To make it easier to manage thousands of equipment over wide areas, Indigo Vision features a map based monitoring interface. This makes it easier to coordinate surveillance equipment in tracking and monitoring reported events. A pursuit mode automatically follows any moving object across the paths of multiple video cameras.

To make it easy for most companies to use, Indigo Visions control center conforms to ONVIF specifications. ONVIF is a global and industry forum which aims to introduce standards meant to improve interoperability, flexibility and quality. As a result, Indigo Vision is compatible with equipment and software from most other vendors. Thus, this video surveillance management software can be used even in companies with various bits of existing equipment.

Fully customizable layouts help operators keep tabs on the entire system through the use of map-based monitoring. One click on a target location reveals all relevant cameras, so the security monitor does not need to memorize equipment names and locations. This gives the monitor much better situational awareness, and more focus on developing events. The same map based monitoring reveals the location of tripped alarms to make it more convenient for the operator.

The control panel allows the operator to view video feeds from single or multiple cameras through workstations and video walls. There software has enough muscle to support up to four monitors and up to 100 cameras for each workstation. What is more, the cameras can feature live audio – you can listen to audio from the cameras as well as send out audio to the persons you see in the cameras.

When an event starts to unfold you can use an on-video virtual joystick or surveillance keyboard joystick to take complete control of particular cameras while tracking suspects. You can pan, tilt, and zoom cameras to get a better view of developing events to enable you to get back control fast.

After events have been contained video footages are archived to allow fast and efficient searches of particular alarms, bookmarked sections, video motion, events and audio profiles. Thus video footages can easily be accessed for evidence purposes, especially as footages are watermarked to preserve its integrity.

There are also options to integrate access control, building management, alarm, intrusion detection, facial recognition and video analytics systems.

Touchscreen Technology Is Revolutionizing Sales

Touchscreen technology has been with us for some time now. We touch them when we use our smart devices to make calls, browse the internet, or send SMS. The ATM’s we draw money from uses a form of touchscreen technology to help verify our identity as well as to define the transaction we wish to make. In the sidewalks in town and in many buildings we use information kiosks for way finding, for registration purposes, and to get directions on processes and procedures. Now interactive touch screens are revolutionizing the way companies sell their products.

The Many Ways Touchscreens Are Used To Sell

Here are a few ways touchscreens are used to sell:

Interactive Billboards: Perhaps the most common way interactive touch screens are used to sell is as an upgraded and interactive electronic billboard. An interactive screen strategically placed at eye level in areas with high pedestrian traffic can effectively disseminate information about a company’s range of products or services. Details such as types of products, their specifications, prices, acceptable payment types, contact number, and website can be displayed. In trade shows and exhibitions such screens can provide way finding information to help clients find the booths they are interested in, in addition to containing product advertisements.

An interactive billboard set right outside the business premises is a great way to entice clients to visit. This may take the form of an interactive screen containing menu selections, prices and table availability set just outside a restaurant. People passing by are free to explore dining selections without the pressure of having a person hovering over their shoulder. Thus people are more likely to check it out. The same goes for stores which can feature selected products and display special offers right outside the door. This article says a restaurant chain is now considering replacing its cashiers with touch screens.

Interactive Catalogs: At a time when brick and mortar stores are continuously taking hits from their online counterparts, they can use all the help they can get. An interactive catalog helps stores display their wares digitally so their clients can make a shortlist of products they may be interested in. Then brick and mortar stores can physically show the items to their clients for the final selection. Having the clients touch and feel the actual product is the one thing that online stores cannot do, and when interactive screen catalogs speed up the selection process makes it more likely the client would visit a real store.

Aside from the benefits to the clients, the store can save a lot on display space, and on merchandiser salaries. All they have to do is set up a few screens where clients can make their selections and a warehouse where items can be stored. This is especially beneficial when used in clothing outlets.

Interactive Touchscreen Tables: Touch screen tables are great tools for selling real estate properties. The map of the property development project, plans & drawings of available home models, pricing, and payment terms can be shown through the screen. Having the client manipulate the screen to show options help seal the deal.

Interactive screens enable brick and mortar stores to display and sell their wares in an innovative and efficient manner.
