QNAP VSM-2000 overview

  • 1Description

The VioStor CMS VSM-2000 Server from Qnap is a Linux-embedded turnkey solution to centrally monitor, manage, and configure distributed Network Video Recorders (NVRs), cameras, and events at multiple locations. A unified platform for projects of various sizes, it is designed to help those with the following roles to manage projects easily and efficiently:

  • Control center operators or managers can maintain overall control of areas for which they are responsible, receive event notifications, and respond in a timely manner when events occur
  • Event examiners can retrieve video footage of events efficiently
  • Project installers can configure the system quickly and intuitively, with less time for setup

    The VSM-2000 is powered by an Intel Dual-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. It has two hot-swappable hard drive bays that can support both 2.5" and 3.5" drives, with capacities up to 4TB per bay. In terms of licenses, it supports a base number of 64 user licenses, with a maximum of 1,024 user licenses. Network connectivity is achieved using the dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.

    The VioStor CMS VSM-2000 Server operates on 110~240VAC and consumes 25W. Included with this server are 2 x Ethernet cables, 8 x 3.5" HDD flat head screws, 6 x 2.5" HDD flat head screws, a hard disk lock, a power cord, and an AC adapter.

  • Turnkey Solution
    QNAP CMS server is a Linux-embedded turnkey solution, with other needed services built-in, such as database SQL server. This makes the installation of the QNAP VioStor CMS user-friendly and intuitive - just run the CMS server Quick Configuration, install the CMS client software on a PC, and you're ready to log into CMS server from the CMS client
    Centralized Event Management
    At big sites, a large number of cameras, devices, recording servers, etc. are usually distributed widely at great intervals. This can be a challenge for control center operators to monitor the status of all devices, especially when an event occurs.

    VioStor CMS helps overcome the challenge by providing several features such as E-map based event alert:

    When an event occurs, there will be red indicators on the e-map to show the event location. By double-clicking the camera icon, live video of the event will pop out. The e-map layers are also unlimited and e-map links are multi-directional
    Centralized Device Management
    One of the most challenging tasks in a large project is the configuration of numerous NVRs and cameras. VioStor CMS helps the project installer to monitor and configure the devices in the system easily from a central location. This helps to reduce set-up time and enhance efficiency
    Flexible Central Monitoring
    In a large-scale project, a great number of camera channels need to be displayed on several monitors. Control center operators need a flexible, customizable tool to help them monitor these many channels, and quickly focus on the specific channels.

    VioStor CMS has a customizable monitoring layout, which allows the users to freely mix and match e-map and camera videos in different slots of a view. Each slot can include multiple camera videos to form a sequence. By doing so, the non-critical channels can all be displayed in sequential mode, while keep the critical channels always displayed
    Online License Scalability
    VioStor CMS is compatible with QNAP NVRs with firmware version 4.1.0 or above. The number of channel licenses can be increased online as the project grows. This provides more flexibility to the project designers and installers
