VisionPoint VMS v8.1 empowers security system integrators to proactively and efficiently manage customer deployments in the cloud 3VR announced the newest release of its video management software, VisionPoint VMS (version 8.1), a single video management platform for real-time security and customer insights. Version 8.1 helps security system integrators manage multiple customer deployments more cost-effectively with cloud-based remote management and self-diagnostic tools. It also offers customers improved system performance and flexibility with new edge processing and enhanced 360-degree panamorph camera support. Remote configuration “VisionPoint VMS 8.1 delivers a simplified user experience and new tools to reduce operational costs via cloud-based system management, while at the same time streamlining the support process for system integrators,” said Uma Welingkar, Vice President of Product Management at 3VR. For enterprise and multi-location customers, version 8.1 makes it easier to remotely configure, deploy, and manage appliances across geographic locations via a cloud-based enterprise server, reducing customer on-site visits, and therefore improving profitability for security system integrators. System diagnostics and user-audit features By leveraging new system diagnostics and user-audit features, integrators can proactively manage and self-diagnose issues with customer deployments and receive updates regarding system usage. Additionally, dynamic process allocation enables integrators to easily manage resources on the system. For full 360-degree security coverage, VisionPoint VMS now supports 360-degree panamorph camera vendors 3VR VisionPoint VMS offers advanced search functionality to rapidly search vast amounts of video data and generate relevant clips in a matter of seconds using 3VR’s patented event cards. This release adds new edge processing that offers customers that same superior search capability with a broader set of camera options for their applications. 360-degree security coverage For full 360-degree security coverage, VisionPoint VMS now supports 360-degree panamorph camera vendors. This new release also includes tape integration for a lower cost video archive option. 3VR continues to support and update data integrations with access control and camera manufacturers. VisionPoint VMS 8.1 will be available on the partner portal using an upgrade wizard for simpler and faster upgrades.
Enhancements include support for 360 degree cameras, web-based OpCenter, & integration with Quantum tape-based storage solutions 3VR, a video data and technology company, recently announced several enhancements to its video management software, VisionPoint™ VMS. This includes support for 360 degree cameras, the addition of a Web-based OpCenter, and integration with tape-based storage solutions from Quantum. “Consistently making upgrades like these helps us stay ahead of customer demands and ensures that our VisionPoint VMS is a competitive and well-positioned product,” said Uma Welingkar, Vice President of Product Management for 3VR. “Supporting the latest video inputs like 360-degree cameras is only part of what makes a VMS great, which is why these latest improvements also take into consideration how customers want to access and store their video data.” Supports 360-degree cameras from Arecont Vision, Axis, Sony and Vivotek 3VR’s VisionPoint VMS now supports popular 360-degree cameras from Arecont Vision, Axis Communications, Sony Electronics and Vivotek. These cameras offer a field of view which is much wider than fixed cameras. However, image distortion is common with 360-degree lenses, requiring the video to be de-warped for better viewing. Rather than de-warping the video at the camera level – which degrades image quality due to processing limitations – 3VR’s technology de-warps the video at the VMS level. Doing so maintains higher video quality during processing, so more video data is available for post-incident analysis. Camera orientation and configuration are managed using 3VR’s system manager, making it easy to use cameras from multiple vendors. Addition of web-based OpCenter 3VR’s new OpCenter is a Web-based operations centre that enables users to search and analyse video data from VisionPoint VMS on any computer or mobile device via the Internet. Customers can watch live or recorded video with the ability to view single or multiple channels across the enterprise. 3VR’s patented search capabilities – including motion and analytics-based search like dwell time, facial surveillance and gender identification – are all available through OpCenter. OpCenter also provides a completely redesigned user interface and true Web-based access to video without the need for vendor-specific applications. Integration with Quantum storage solutions Finally, 3VR has integrated its VisionPoint VMS with low-cost, tape-based storage solutions from Quantum. This gives customers the ability to archive and store video data for extended periods of time. The integration allows customers to seamlessly view and search the video stored on tape directly through the new OpCenter. 3VR is demonstrating all of these enhancements to its VisionPoint VMS at the ISC West trade show in Las Vegas, April 6-8. Interested end users, security dealers and integrators are invited to visit booth No. 23075 for more information.
As a certified partner, 3VR VisionPoint VMS integrates with AMAG Symmetry access control system AMAG Technology, an integrated security provider of access control, video management and identity management solutions, is proud to announce that 3VR is now a certified member of AMAG’s Symmetry Preferred Partner Program. As a certified partner, 3VR’s VisionPoint™ VMS integrates with AMAG’s Symmetry™ Access Control System. AMAG Technology and 3VR cooperatively tested and certified this integration. “We welcome 3VR to the Symmetry Preferred Partner Program and look forward to a long-term relationship with them,” said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Product Marketing, Dave Ella. “The integration with 3VR’s VisionPoint VMS allows live or recorded video from the 3VR system to integrate with Symmetry access control alarms and events. The integration also allows end users to have more choice when it comes to product selection.” AMAG & 3VR integration “Integrating 3VR’s VMS with access control systems like Symmetry allows us to give customers visual context around the information gathered from badges, access codes and alarms,” said Uma Welingkar, Vice President of Product Management for 3VR. “This partnership helps customers make sense of the data they are gathering so they can make informed decisions and take appropriate actions.” The 3VR VisionPoint VMS integration with the Symmetry Access Control system provides a single console that uses the Symmetry interface to search and view live and recorded video using specific events triggered in Symmetry. The integration provides the ability to manage and view 3VR VMS servers and associated channels. Customers can use the Symmetry Virtual Matrix to view video and manipulate PTZ cameras, and can play back recorded video from any camera connected to 3VR’s VisionPoint VMS. Customers can also monitor and report on events within Symmetry based on 3VR’s motion detection capabilities.
