Video Management System

Video Management Systems (VMS) provide a tool that aids the security professional in the efficient and effective use of surveillance equipment.

What is Video Management?

A video surveillance solution consists of the following building blocks:

• Cameras
• Network infrastructure
• Storage solution
• Software for managing the system, viewing live and recorded video, etc.

In an IP (network video) system, the cameras are connected over a standard computer Ethernet network such as LAN, WAN or the Internet. Video is either stored on a central computer server/PC, a Network Attached Storage (NAS) unit, or on SD cards inside each camera. A web browser can be used to view live video from a camera, but for handling recording and other functionality in the system, a video management software solution is needed. The video management software can be installed on the same PC as the storage, or on a separate PC. In some systems, the cameras have enough video management software built into themselves so that the user only needs smartphone/tablet apps to view live and recorded video.
