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.
