HikCentral VMS streamlines surveillance management



Hikvision, the world’s leading supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, has released HikCentral, its latest Video Surveillance Management System (VMS). It provides a raft of robust and scalable video surveillance solutions for all types of application scenarios and is easy to use for seamless management of multiple devices.


HikCentral gives users a number of operation functions, including live view and playback management, smart video search and alarm management. With two options to choose from – a server-based solution and a software solution – HikCentral can be adapted to fit any need or infrastructure.


To give users the maximum flexibility to connect to their surveillance data, HikCentral can be used by three clients. A control client is most comprehensive, making it ideal for daily operation; a web client is designed to give access through other devices; and a mobile client delivers live remote access anywhere. This means that users can always stay updated.


Ease and efficiency – features like pre-loaded software and pre-activated license means that the system can be set up very quickly. In fact, the lightweight installation package reduces the install time to minutes. After that, one-step configuration automatically detects devices, synchronises camera names and recording schedules from devices.


Unified platform - HikCentral is a unified platform that blends video surveillance, ALPR, POS and 3rd party system integration within one solution.


High scalability and availability - The system is designed with a high level of scalability with the ability scale up to a centralised management – in HQ for example – and to scale down to regions or branches. This is made possible using RSM servers. With both single-spot and multi-spot storage backup, using RAID and Hybrid SAN, the system has a large amount of contingency. It is also integrated with technology from high availability solution provider, Rose Replicator Plus, to give the solution a high level of reliability. These work to give users peace of mind in times of crisis.


Replacing Hikvision’s iVMS 5200, HikCentral will be a great management tool for all kinds of applications in multiple industries, supporting a large range of channels. Examples range from a group of Catholic Schools in Edmonton, Canada, with 850 surveillance channels to a US-based bank upgrading its 450-camera security network across all its branches.
