A ‘smart city’ is only as smart as its video management system. Not only must video data be collected, but the information gathered must be used effectively so that safety, resource management, and operational efficiency are optimised across all sectors in the city. With CathexisVision Enterprise, you can manage multiple sites centrally, monitoring thousands of cameras, integrated systems, hardware, user access and assets all from a central location.
As an all-in-one video management system, CathexisVision Enterprise brings together all the components for effective city monitoring. It can be accessed through a user-friendly UI that makes it easy for control room operators to keep updated and be alerted to important events and system health reports. With Enterprise, it’s easy to view multiple cameras from multiple sites – so cities of all sizes can be monitored easily.
System up-time is essential for effective city monitoring. CathexisVision Enterprise provides feedback on hardware and assets across all sites in the city, which enables a proactive approach to system health. At a glance, you can check health summaries of sites, servers, and cameras, and receive reports on camera, disk, database and server specs. Increased visibility of technical issues on remote sites means that technicians can determine the precise fix and parts required, which reduces unnecessary site visits. With fewer repair teams on the road, the city’s carbon footprint is minimised. Moreover, CathexisVision Enterprise’s system analysis tools help you forecast capital expenditure and plan ahead. This essential data empowers city management to make sound, informed investment decisions.
CathexisVision Enterprise also supports city management by optimising operations. By gaining a thorough understanding of system faults and system repair, operational managers can identify areas that require attention and use this information to streamline work processes across all levels of city management.
Enterprise’s centralised user management system offers customisable access based on one’s region or role. This is a vital aspect of smart city management, as operators and officials interact with the video monitoring system differently, depending on their role in the organisation. This also means that individual access can be granted or removed swiftly, as required, for added security.
To maximise efficiency, all systems in a smart city – from CCTV and access control, to number plate recognition and analytics – must communicate seamlessly and need to be managed centrally. Since Enterprise is an extension of CathexisVision, cities can benefit from the software’s integration ability and AI-powered video analytics by using Enterprise.
As technology advances, so the potential for creating connected, safer, efficient cities expands. It’s essential to choose a video management system that can handle the demands of monitoring across wide geographical regions and gathering information from multiple third-party systems, all while maintaining up-time and system health. As a comprehensive, cost-effective, reliable solution, CathexisVision Enterprise is the ideal choice for the centralised management of smart cities.
