Honeywell Digital Video Manager Helps Manage Security Systems for IT Platform

Honeywell Digital

Honeywell announces enhancements to Honeywell Digital Video Manager (DVM). The current update in DVM R600 will enable organizations to more efficiently manage their security system with enhanced mobile capabilities and voice command, and mitigate business risk via support for current IT platforms.

Major updates to DVM include:

  • Enhanced system access and usability, which are designed to improve operator efficiency and reaction time.
  • Security personnel now can access high-definition, full-frame-rate video on a mobile device, for example, enabling continuous monitoring (recording / playback) from almost any location.
  • Operators can also control DVM using voice commands to more easily manage multiple video feeds and request near-real-time system updates.

“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.”

Other DVM upgrades focus on:

  • Extensible platform speeding data collection —Security operators can export footage from multiple camera feeds in unison to streamline incident response and workflow, and quickly collect and archive forensic data in the event of an incident. Dynamic adapter installation, video analytics, edge storage, camera feature support, device capability discovery and video wall integration provides higher flexibility to customers to add new custom features
  • Reducing storage requirements — Dynamic recording leads to reduction in cost up to 40% by enabling the system to capture critical video under higher frame rates, while collecting less important footage at lower frame rates, trimming storage requirements, reducing network bandwidth requirement and allowing edge recording playback from NVRs, DVRs. It is easy to engineer and leverages the full capability of video encoding devices that support multiple streams.

 “Our surveillance system has always been robust, utilizing hundreds of cameras throughout both our facilities to promote visitor safety and security,” said Tom Owen, operations manager for Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions, which manages the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Australia. “However, the IT infrastructure required large storage capacity and as many as 15 standalone PC servers. We have cut our costs significantly with DVM R600 by using the system’s single-server virtual machine environment, and intelligent redundancy of storage, processing and memory. The new architecture has also helped lower life-cycle and maintenance costs.”

Enhancing user experience, DVM R600 promotes IT integration and compliance with support for current Microsoft operating systems and databases, including Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 and SQL Server 2014.
