The command center is the heart of a bank’s security system, where security personnel monitor and respond to emergency events. As more and more information gets processed at command centers, and since alarms can pop up any moment, management teams must utilize automated tools for an effective workflow. Hikvision’s VMS caters to these exact needs, enhancing command center efficiency in many ways: a more automated system that checks device status for you, smarter network adaptation functions, and useful alarm management procedures that can be incorporated into your existing SOPs.
See it all, and all at once. The Smart Wall provides powerful management functions, including real-time video surveillance and visual alarm data. The ability to support up to 32 monitoring screens and 32 decoding devices along with flexible viewing modes simplifies any set of tasks.
Along with real-time video and alarm information, you can project your PC screen onto the Smart Wall. The all-channel information display simplifies management and allows your team to stay on top of everything that is happening.
The option to use floating IP compared to the traditional fixed IP makes it easier to establish a cross-regional management system while reducing costs.
Hikvision’s smooth streaming technology automatically adjusts the bit rate and resolution under low data rates to ensure a smooth live view. This is especially useful for banks since there is often only limited bandwidth available. With smooth live-streaming, the system adapts the data processing mechanism to solve latency and mosaic problems caused by packet loss or error codes.
H.265 and H.265+ Codec
H.265 is the most advanced industry-standard compression codec. Hikvision added to H.265 its own compatible algorithm, creating the “H.265+” codec to further optimize compression and transmission. H.265+ codec technology can vastly decrease the bandwidth and storage requirements. Cut approximately 75% off of the storage required by the H.265 codec.
A comprehensive alarm center module displays alarm lists, GIS information, and up 16 video streams of video surveillance simultaneously on-screen.
Alarm escalation takes place when the primary operator does not respond. An unprocessed alarm will be forwarded and escalated to upper level management when the original operator ignores.
Alarm Response via Mobile App
Using the mobile app, authorized personnel can check video feeds and alarms any time, anywhere. The app enables remote inspection, so top management can review alarms from their mobile devices to get first-hand information for smart, nimble operations.
Complex systems require regular status checks. Nevertheless, minor errors happen from time to time. With the health monitoring module, a security team no longer needs to check on device status one by one – every bit of information you need is on the dashboard, displayed in an intuitive and clear manner. Find and fix flagged devices using the error list, and manage multiple systems on a single, centralized dashboard.
For security managers, it is important to not only receive alarms for errors, but also review the error log to ensure there’s no malicious attempts to sabotage the system. With the audit trail function, all logs are in one place. What’s more, filters help you to search for and find specific records quickly and accurately.
