Digital security solution helps mitigate business risks
Honeywell has added enhancements to its Digital Video Manager (DVM) with the release of DVM R600, designed to help organisations more efficiently manage their security system and mitigate business risks. The smart surveillance software has been taken up by top Australian and New Zealand facilities management firm Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions.
“Our surveillance system has always been robust, utilising 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.
“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.”
Honeywell claims 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%.
The upgraded system also comes with improved mobile capabilities and voice command, as well as system access and usability to improve operator efficiency and reaction time. Security personnel now can access HD, full-frame-rate video on a mobile device, enabling continuous monitoring remotely. Operators can also control DVM using voice commands to manage multiple video feeds and request near-real-time system updates.
“Every second is important to an organisation 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 speeding data collection, enabling security operators to export footage from multiple camera feeds in unison to streamline incident response and workflow. This allows quick access to collect and archive forensic data in the event of an incident.
