The base Victor Express Software with 1 Concurrent Connection from American Dynamics is part of the unified client portfolio, and it enables you to manage videos from multiple Intellex DVRs and VideoEdge NVR/Hybrids from a single intuitive interface. It is designed to handle the high throughput of HD (high definition) and megapixel cameras and easily manages real-time alarms and events.
This software is part of a powerful NVMS (Network Video Management Software) that includes advanced policy management, health monitoring, Smart Search, instant playback, and more, ensuring the security and safety of your entire organization whether a single site, a multi-location, or a globally dispersed enterprise.
Note! In an installation of less than 100 cameras, victor site manager and victor unified client can run on the same workstation.
- Powerful Portfolio of Unified Clients
The victor software unifies security, surveillance, and event management. From a single interface, you can manage live/recorded videos from Intellex DVRs, VideoEdge NVRs, and Hybrid recorders. Video from analog and IP cameras can be displayed simultaneously, all with a common feature set, no matter what the codec (H.264, ACC, MJPEG, MPEG-4) or video format. Mix and match recorders without toggling between separate client applications. The intuitive design includes advanced features such as tear off, snap, auto hide, tab, and dock windows providing an easy and customizable operator experience.
Drag and drop cameras and devices into a near limitless number of video layouts and monitors. It supports multiple customizable layouts to improve operator efficiency and responsiveness. This software is easy-to-use due to the presence of a tree structure. Create and organize camera lists from multiple Intellex and VideoEdge recorders to meet the needs of different operators. Build video tours and saved views, then organize them into victor’s customizable and easy-to-use site lists for rapid response.
Motion-based Smart Searches are run on a database of meta-data instead of searching through hours or weeks of video. This makes incident investigations quick and easy. Add advanced video analytics to your VideoEdge NVRs and Hybrids to increase situational awareness with alarms for tripwire, linger, object removed/abandoned and more.
- victor Express Client
- This software is suitable for customers that require video unification functionality in smaller sites. As part of the victor unified client portfolio, the victor Express software is designed for a single client, multi-recorder application. Manage video from all of your IP and analog cameras from multiple Intellex DVRs and VideoEdge NVR/Hybrids from a single intuitive interface.
- Event Management
- The victor system provides optimal management of events and alarms to improve your situational awareness. Events can drive system wide actions either on one or more victor clients or on a video wall. For example, you can PTZ a camera to a specific location, a live/recorded video view can pop up, or a map can pop up highlighting the area in which the incident is occurring.
- Event Viewer
The victor Event Viewer provides real-time information on objects, time, location, instructions, audio notification, video confirmation and more. Dual phase event management lets an officer acknowledge and investigate an event, then either log his own message or choose one from a pre-determined drop down list.
Using motion meta-data and video analytics makes searching for alarm causes, faster. When results are served up, a bounding box indicates what caused the alarm, helping to quickly identify the video in question. This saves time when searching for results.
- Search and Investigate
Using innovative video analytics and robust motion-based meta-data, this software makes searching for recorded video faster. Search days of video in seconds. And with the help of optimization and filtering tools, victor makes it easy to perform complex searches. For example, operators can not only select the specific region with the camera’s field of view, but they can also filter by the size and duration of movement with that specific region of interest. To narrow or broaden the search results, you simply change the values of the existing search criteria.
No longer restricted to basic one-speed, forward or reverse searches, it provides flexibility by letting you search for video, in the forward or reverse direction at various speeds, or by frame, or by alarm/send. In addition, an intuitive jump back button lets you skip through video based on time increments (30 seconds, 1, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes).
This software allows easy transition from searching to investigator mode that lets you add and synchronize cameras to your search criteria as you re-enact a suspect’s movement throughout a facility. Time and date-based searches can be performed on up to ten cameras across any recorders, simplifying investigations and increasing operator efficiency.
- Virtual PTZ
- The virtual PTZ feature lets you digitally zoom using a fixed camera, and can be saved as a pre-set. This eliminates the need to use the manual zoom, should details need to be seen. You can set a digital zoom area to all alarms and event pop-ups.
Import CAD (dwg, dxf) or raster files (bmp, jpg, etc) and populate floor plans with your security objects. All imported files are converted to a .bmp file to minimize file size. This ensures fast, high-quality renderings when a map pops up on alarm. Icons support a wide variety of animations and automatically link to the health status of the object (e.g. if a camera is offline the icon on the map will show a turned off light bulb). You can also hover over an icon which can cause video to pop up or additional information about the icon to appear. An intuitive Find on Map feature helps you locate specific objects on a map, saving an enormous amount of time, particularly if you have hundreds of security and safety devices.
It supports multiple maps at one time, and shows you a bird’s eye or satellite view of your location, combined with individual floor plans and zoomed in areas such as a lobby or other key areas. Each map can support up 10,000 icons, providing any level of detail you require. In case of an event, an action can send a map to a specific monitor and automatically undertake actions such as video view pop-up.
- Health Monitoring
- This software provides system wide real-time notification and reporting on the status of all associated security devices. When adding recorders and cameras, victor automatically creates pre-defined health monitoring events for all cameras and recorders.
