Honeywell recently announced enhancements to its Digital Video Manager (DVM). The latest release, DVM R600, will include enhanced system access and usability which is designed to improve operator efficiency and reaction time. Security personnel can now access high-definition, full-frame-rate video on a mobile device, enabling continuous monitoring from almost any location. Operators can also control DVM using voice commands to easily manage multiple video feeds and request near-real-time system updates.
Other DVM upgrades:
Speeding Data Collection lets Security Operators:
- Export footage from multiple camera feeds in unison to streamline incident response and workflow.
- Quickly collect and archive forensic data in the event of an incident.
Reducing Storage Requirements with Dynamic Recording:
- Enables the system to capture critical video under higher frame rates while collecting less important footage at lower frame rates, trimming storage requirements and costs up to 40 percent.
“Every second is important to an organization when an incident occurs and security staff must take immediate action if there is a threat,” said John Rajchert, president of Honeywell Building Solutions. “The latest update to DVM helps operators quickly identify and react to an issue to help mitigate the impact to safety and business continuity — no matter- if they are in front of a central workstation or on the opposite side of a campus, connected with a smartphone.”
“Our IT infrastructure required large storage capacity and as many as 15 standalone PC servers,” said Tom Owen, operations manager for Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions, which manages the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Australia. “We have cut our costs significantly with DVM R600 by using the system’s single-server virtual machine environment. The new architecture has also helped lower life-cycle and maintenance costs.”
