Video management systems (VMS) serve as the user interface to command and control video surveillance systems. These systems are comprised of imagers, recording devices, extended storage, intelligent analytics, and user display and control interfaces (monitors, video walls, and keyboards). Today, there are two different types of deployments for VMS, hardware and software.
Software solutions were developed to deploy on a customer’s hardware and required significant expertise and technical resources to install and implement. To simplify this process and provide more purposed-based systems, hardware based VMS appliances are now available and gaining in popularity. These special purpose appliances have high-end video rendering hardware and extended I/O capabilities for sub system integrations.
According to a report from IHS, the market size of global video management software is expected to exceed $3 billion by 2018, and the Chinese market is growing the fastest. Milestone Systems and Genetec share the lead in terms of global market share. Industry consolidation among video software and hardware manufacturers has forced the VMS to evolve from a pure software product with per-channel licensing fee models to a more appliance-oriented industry with capacity and features controlled by the appliance.
Dahua has a full-featured VMS product family, named DSS. DSS is available as a pure software product for installation on customer hardware when required. Advanced DSS appliances are also available from Dahua. The DSS7016 series and DSS4004 series are integrated appliances that share a common software base, but the appliance hardware is designed to optimise performance with the rigorous demands of a video management server.
DSS appliances and software provide support while maintaining an easy-to-use interface for operators and technicians. Features include: live viewing, playback, storage management, video display management (video walls, matrix controllers, and monitors), 2-way audio control, and other advanced features. Some of the advanced features include: POS integration with data sync and intelligent video analysis to aid in event identification (tripwire, intrusion, object abandonment, object missing, people counting, etc.), and E-Map (floor plans with camera locations).
Advantages of DSS
Reliable and multi-functional
The embedded Linux operating system provides reliable platform support which is protected from malicious software attack.
Cost effective and energy efficient
Appliance integration provides maximum performance and reduces the total cost of ownership by reducing hardware costs, energy costs, and maintenance costs.
Hot standby mode can improve the stability of the system, if the active server fails or disconnects the hot standby server changes to active mode automatically and the system keeps working normally.
The pre-configured appliance only requires a simple power-on boot and connection to your security equipment network.
Easy access to DSS system via browser, client-end or mobile client, anytime and anywhere.
Open third-party friendly platform
Open platform SDK supports partners to develop their own features and applications. DSS offers support for Windows, iOS, Android, ONVIF devices and third-party equipment as well.
