VMS - Video Management Solution

VMS - Video Management Solution

Video management systems and video analytics are intellectual elements of a comprehensive security system for any organization and enterprise.

Video Management System (VMS - Video Management System) provides video camera management, video stream distribution and image display to security monitors, quick and effective incident response, access rights to control video cameras and video archive, prompt notification of security incidents.

Video analytics is a key element of any video surveillance system, as it allows you to automate the main tasks of protecting objects and territories, namely, the prediction and detection of potential risks, tracking and recognition of objects.

The image from video surveillance cameras is transmitted to the video content storage server, and using specialized software, it is automatically analyzed and processed, and the result is output to the administrator or head of the security system.

F.A.Q about VMS - Video Management Solution

What is Video Management Software?

A video management software (VMS) is a part of a video surveillance system that allows the user to access real-time videos, record, store, & playback recorded videos and derive useful insights of the surveillance site.

When to upgrade a Video Surveillance System?

Current Video Management Systems are capable of offering much more than just surveillance, hence, upgrading a VMS system becomes as important as upgrading the other assets of the business. A VMS system can be upgraded when an organization is:

  • Using a traditional CCTV surveillance system (Old equipment and cameras)
  • Incurring increased maintenance costs of the existing surveillance system
  • Expanding from Single site to multiple sites (Small to medium to large-sized enterprises)
  • In the need of Intelligent Video Analytics for monitoring sites, employees or business processes
  • Requiring Video Analytics for improving the site operations to benefit the customers, users of the VMS or employees
  • In need for standardization of VMS system equipment

What are the factors to consider while selecting video surveillance cameras for the VMS System?

Video surveillance cameras come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, features, and functions, which are designed to perform in diverse environmental conditions of the surveillance sites. There are few things that users must consider while selecting Video surveillance cameras for their VMS system. Users must check:

  • The camera resolution (image quality)
  • Indoor or outdoor camera compatibility
  • Wired or wireless cameras
  • Light sensitivity of the camera (ability of a surveillance camera to work in low light)
  • Shape of the camera (box type, bullet camera or dome camera)
  • Frame rate (more frames per second –fps defines more clear video)

Why should enterprises switch from traditional CCTV systems to cloud-based Video Management Systems?

Traditional CCTV systems are just analog devices with limited functionality to monitor and track the events in the camera vicinity, whereas new age cloud-based video management systems are smart enough to record, store, playback, and analyze the captured events in real-time and later. Cloud-based Video Surveillance systems are equipped with high-quality IP cameras, which provide a high-quality image with better fps for the system network. Storage is never an issue with these systems as all the data is stored on the cloud and can be fetched whenever required. Cloud-based video management systems are easy to install as users can just plug-and-play these devices for small setups. These systems are easily customizable in terms of camera numbers, features in the software, types of video analytics, etc.

What are different deployment types of Video Management Software?

Video Management Software can be classified into three deployment types:

On-premise VMS. On-premise VMS solutions are best suitable for managing video surveillance of a single site. All the streaming, recording & management servers, storage devices & applications are installed locally on-site. This allows user to manage their security and connected device ecosystem from the site itself.

Cloud based VMS. The cloud based VMS, unlike the on-premise VMS possesses higher flexibility and scalability. It allows the user to manage multiple sites, all at the same time – from any location and at any time.

Hybrid VMS. Hybrid VMS solution is a flexible surveillance solution, which generally comes with the capability of managing both analog and IP video signals simultaneously. It allows the enterprises to have traditional VMS solution to coexist with the functionalities of cloud Video Surveillance.

What are the benefits of microservice architecture in cloud video management software?

Microservice architecture based Cloud video management software overcomes the limitations of traditionally designed VMS solution (monolithic architecture) and addresses the evolving security needs of the businesses. Let’s see how it benefits cloud video management software:

Modularity: Micro-services allows video management software to be designed as a suite of various independent modules that remain integrated through APIs.

Scalability: A cloud based video management software on microservices is easily scalable i.e. any of the new service can be added or existing services can be upgraded in the software without affecting the video surveillance.

Flexibility: Through microservices based cloud video management software, users can opt for any new VMS services to be added or removed in their existing software according to their evolving business needs. This can be of great help to the users as they can follow the pay per feature business model. It also allows developers to choose the programming languages of their choice, for its development.
