Nowadays, most manufacturers of CCTV equipment develop software to manage the images generated by surveillance cameras, whether they are digital or analog cameras. This type of software is called VMS (Video Management Software). The main function of a VMS software is to manage the images and data (IVS) coming from the cameras, so that this information can be processed by operators or automated procedures and give timely response to a particular event.
The capabilities of this type of software are growing every day, as it allows us to integrate various physical security technologies such as intrusion systems, access control systems, fire fighting systems or even BIM systems, which can converge on the same platform and make video surveillance systems more efficient.
Another software widely used in the world of CCTV is Video Analytics. Analytical Video is software that extracts useful information from video images, converting video into data that can tell us something or send an alarm depending on the type of video. A very common analytical video is the LPR (License Plate Recognition), which is the one in charge of identifying the license plates of a vehicle through an algorithm in charge of identifying and separating this data from the video. Another very common analytic is VMD (Video Motion Detection), which simply reacts to any movement that exists in a given image.
Grupo Covix can supply the CCTV software that best suits your needs, from a simple VMS to a complex video analytic that requires integration for a turnkey project.
