Video Management Systems (VMS) serve as the user-interface for commanding and controlling Video Surveillance Systems. These systems are comprised of imagers, recording devices, extended storage, intelligent analytics, and user display and control interfaces (monitors, video walls, and keyboards). Today, there are two different ways to deploy VMS: hardware and software.

Software solutions were developed to be deployed on a customer’s hardware, and require significant expertise and technical resources to install and implement. To simplify this process and provide more purpose-based systems, hardware-based VMS appliances are now available and gaining in popularity. These special purpose-built appliances have high-end video rendering hardware and extended I/O capabilities for sub system integrations.

According to a report from IHS, the market size of global video management software is expected to exceed $3 billion by 2018, and the Chinese market is the fastest growing among them. Milestone Systems and Genetec, which are the two of the biggest video management software suppliers in the world, have a big part of the global market share. Industry consolidation among video software and hardware manufacturers has forced the VMS to evolve from a pure software product with per-channel licensing fee models to an appliance with its own capacity and features within its control.

Dahua DSS VMS product family

Dahua, a world leader in the professional security market, has a full-featured VMS product family named DSS. DSS is available as a pure software product for installation on customer hardware when required. Advanced DSS appliances are also available from Dahua. The DSS7016 series and DSS4004 series are state-of-the-art integrated appliances. The integrated appliances share a common software base, but the appliance hardware is designed to optimise performance with the rigorous demands of a video management server.

The VMS serves as the command and control interface of a video system. Features include: user rights management, device management, device status, storage status, live viewing, playback, and export. These functions become very complex the larger the video system becomes. System availability, user interaction, and workflow management are key factors.

DSS appliances and software provide the very best level of support while maintaining an easy-to-use interface for operators and technicians. Features include: live viewing, playback, storage management, video display management (video walls, matrix controllers, and monitors), 2-way audio control, and other advanced features. Some of the advanced feature support includes: POS integration with data sync and intelligent video analysis to aid in event identification (Tripwire, Intrusion, Object Abandonment, Object Missing, People Counting, etc.), and E-Map (Floor plans with camera locations).

Advantages of DSS
