Delivering value beyond video

SMART Surveillance 2023 Surveillance, Integrated Solutions

In the competitive and ever-changing surveillance market, what makes a business choose one video management software (VMS) solution over another? The answer lies in how effectively the VMS provides a return on investment, going beyond surveillance to deliver solutions that address operational challenges, protecting assets and boosting productivity.

The CathexisVision VMS is a smart surveillance solution that offers operational value through several key areas: effective site management, control room efficiency, situational awareness, integration, and reliable evidence. By choosing CathexisVision, businesses can reap the benefits of a VMS that amplifies efficiency and enhances productivity, both within and beyond the control room.

CathexisVision will keep each part of a site secure and running efficiently – from perimeters and parking, to access control and buildings – through several features that achieve effective site management, protecting people and assets, and reducing damage to infrastructure, wastage and loss of stock, and bottlenecks in work processes. The software’s in-built video analytics suite, powered by deep learning neural network models, easily identifies people, animals, vehicles and a vast array of objects. This smart analysis of complex footage does not only identify objects, but can track them, pinpoint when an object has been removed, detect attempted perimeter breaches, monitor vehicle speed and movement, and more.

Business personnel, contractors, and visitors can benefit from the knowledge that they are protected and that operators will be alerted immediately, should an incident occur. Moreover, CathexisVision databases all relevant footage and provides reliable evidence that can be used to analyse workflows, find missing items, and investigate incidents.

The VMS helps users maintain control room efficiency, promotes situational awareness, and offers a powerful capacity to integrate with third-party systems – all of which streamline operations and provide a real return on surveillance investment. CathexisVision connects to partner systems, such as cameras, fences, alarms, licence-plate recognition, messaging systems, intercoms, access control, and fire panels to offer an expansive range of security features through a single integrated solution.

Security measures can be automated, with the software identifying threats and responding with pre-configured actions (for example, sounding an alarm or locking an integrated access control system). Operators can determine in advance how to react to events by pre-programming system responses. Operators thus save time and can apply themselves to the most essential tasks, because the VMS notifies them of incidents as they occur. Smart Search tools enable operators to search through days or weeks of video footage in a few moments.

CathexisVision’s stability, interoperability and scalability make it a cost-effective choice of VMS. You don’t need to invest in costly extras in order to benefit from its wide range of features. It’s easy to scale, so whether your site is a small, growing business or a large, multinational corporation, CathexisVision provides the tools to manage your surveillance system and add operational value.
