PSIM, or security platforms that take feeds from various systems and provide guidelines on how to react in the event of an emergency, has enjoyed a good year in 2016, with greater analytical capabilities, more drone applications, and more federated solutions being cited as some of the top trends.
LENSEC, a U.S.-based VMS vendor known for its flagship product Perspective VMS, was recently acquired by Jordan-based JValley Software Solutions. In an interview, JValley said that the two will now focus on furthering their global presence and expand the software’s integration capability.
The physical security market has seen some major M&A activity in the past few years. This M&A activity, especially seen in the video surveillance market, has been driven by a several factors: pricing pressure, product commoditization and competition with Chinese companies.
The introduction of IP technology has made physical security systems – video surveillance, access control and alarm systems – susceptible to cyberattacks.
Since user demands in a city surveillance project differ according to budget, system architecture, and the level of scalability needed in the future, it is important for the installer to confirm with their clients what they really need before choosing the right VMS product.
Since the number of cameras and sensors in a city surveillance project can be overwhelmingly large, a good video management software (VMS) solution is needed to support these edge devices as well as present the data generated in a meaningful way.
With IP surveillance becoming more popular and users faced with more complex video management needs, traditional hardware vendors have rolled out solutions to satisfy those needs. One example is Synology, a storage device manufacturer who has also developed its own video management software (VMS) to...
PSIM, or physical security information management, is an effective incident management tool with applications in different industries. Together with analytics, they form a powerful solution for safe city projects.
In safe city projects, control and management happen at the command center, where operators are aided by various tools, such as PSIM (physical security information management) systems and data management platforms, to manage incidents.
Over the years, video surveillance has been the essential key to creating a safer environment. However, a tool needs to be developed to help sift through all the video footage, as well as manage and save the important details. With Com-Sur, a Windows and mobile (iOS and Android) based intelligent su...
