The Digifort VMS and analytics platform is designed to manage and record IP cameras directly using servers. However, Digifort has integrated with many different NVR and DVR-based CCTV systems to allow central control of multiple systems, using its VMS platform. The NVRs and DVRs continue to record locally; can be located at many different sites; and can be from a wide range of different brand manufacturers. The DVR technologies covered include TVI, SDI, AHD and Composite video.
The prime benefits of this functionality are that the Digifort VMS can:
- Coordinate and centralise an existing and varied estate of NVRs and DVRs into a single, hugely capable, VMS platform.
- Allow an upgrade path for TVI, SDI, AHD and Composite video-based systems into one, large, future-proof IP platform, with countless integration and expansion possibilities.
- Enable Digifort’s extensive functionality to be applied to sites currently using far more limited NVRs and DVRs. For example, Digifort’s Surveillance Client can be used for site management; video walls can be implemented; an unlimited hierarchy of system users and user groups can be applied; specific events can be recorded centrally; comprehensive alarm and event management can be realized; and mobile phone streaming can be used to help protect lone workers and far more.
- Enable system upgrades, enhancements and expansion with bolt-on software modules for analytics, LPR, synopsis, facial recognition and point of sale.
