Redvision, UK-based manufacturer of high-performance, rugged, CCTV cameras and housings, has launched a new, open platform control system, the Redvision VMS1000.
Stephen Lightfoot, technical director at Redvision, explains, “The Redvision VMS1000 is both a video management software and analytics solution. It is powered by market-leading, Digifort software and offers unique features for Redvision’s rugged PTZs, such as analytics on presets; point and click operation; and control of lights, wipers, washers and telemetry.”
“It offers end users and installers a cost-effective, scalable, intuitive, server-based control system, with no annual maintenance fees. It maximises the incredible functionality of our X-SERIES and VOLANT rugged PTZs and VEGA fixed cameras and is also integrated with 245 other CCTV brands, for total project flexibility.”
Explorer gives a cost-effective, entry-level control system option, but offers many benefits over 'closed' NVR technology
PTZ and fixed cameras
“This enables the re-use of legacy CCTV cameras into surveillance projects, including encoding existing analogue cameras into the system, or the inclusion of new cameras and technologies, such as 4MP, 8MP and 12MP cameras and the use of H.265 compression.”
The Redvision VMS1000 is available in four license types, Explorer (up to 16 cameras), Standard (up to 32 cameras), Professional (up to 64 cameras) and Enterprise (any number of cameras and sites). Explorer gives a cost-effective, entry-level control system option, but offers many benefits over 'closed' NVR technology. However, the Redvision VMS1000 will scale up to Enterprise solutions, with unlimited users and cameras.
LPR and facial recognition
Stephen added, “The Redvision VMS1000 is easy and intuitive to set up, from its IT configuration through to site commissioning and analytics. License Plate Recognition (LPR) and Facial Recognition are add-on modules, making the system future-proof. It is compatible with edge analytics from leading camera suppliers; supports edge recording; and enables client workstations of up to eight monitors. We also have iLIDS compliance and a remote, central monitoring solution.”
The Redvision VMS1000 standard analytics functionality includes traffic management (speed filter), object tracking, loitering, virtual fence, missing object, abandoned object, face detection, vehicle counting and people counting.
