A video management system, or VMS, is essential in an IP video surveillance solution. A VMS gives you the flexibility to manage your system from setting up user roles, configuring live video streams, setting recording preferences and configuring streaming protocols to maximize network throughput. Video management software comes in many forms from web based applications used to view live streaming video, to mobile software that can be accessed via an iPad.
Intuitive interfaces are designed into video management software that provides a user monitoring the system with the ability to react and respond to potential safety and security threats. A map based interface used in video management software gives the user a situational awareness of what’s going on by combining both a physical location and a live video stream.
A VMS is an essential part of any IP video surveillance system giving system administrators the power to configure and control their system. Furthermore, it provides features to personnel monitoring the system allowing them to quickly react and respond to safety and security threats.
