Veracity showcases end-to-end Command & Control solution at IFSEC
Veracity, a leading provider of innovative and intelligent solutions that solve real-world challenges in IP video systems, is showcasing a new suite of products at IFSEC 2017 which neatly brings together the three cornerstones of its successful business: IP transmission, storage and display.
Following on from its acquisition of security Command & Control software manufacturer icomply Ltd, Veracity's largest-ever IFSEC stand is built around a walk-through Control Room, promoting its integrated security management platform powered by the powerful VTAS Pro.
Bringing together new and legacy third-party video recording systems, VTAS Pro combines them with other security systems such as access control, LPR, guard tours and building management. This provides a unified and coherent system for management and control of single or multiple sites, allowing system operators to be far more efficient in responding to incidents.
VTAS Pro is fully integrated with Veracity's TRINITY direct-to-storage architecture and, fundamental to that, the advanced COLDSTORE surveillance storage system. It also features a full video and media wall display option which can be reconfigured on-the-fly and in response to specific incidents or emergency situations. Live views may be mixed with playback and media streams such as broadcast news, online data streams, maps or other graphical displays.
This end-to-end Command & Control solution is highly scalable and supports a large number of operator workstations, with shared incident management, alarm receiving coordination and capable of handling thousands of remote sites. The system can provide integration with access control, building management, intruder detection, VOIP intercom systems and video analytics including ANPR and facial recognition. Several native security functions can be added to the system in a modular, customisable way such as guard tour, lone worker monitoring, dispatch, alarm monitoring and key management. The solution brings a new level of cost-effectiveness to the integrated Command & Control system market.
Veracity will also be presenting the new HIGHWIRE Powerstar(tm) Base 4 Encoder Replacement Kit, containing a HIGHWIRE Powerstar Base 4 unit, four HIGHWIRE Powerstar Camera units and a 57V DC power supply (region-specific). This product bundle is a simple and cost-effective replacement for legacy analogue video encoders, allowing a customer to upgrade to IP cameras by re-using the coax cable and powering the new IP cameras with POE over coax.
These innovative solutions will be on display on stand F1050 at IFSEC between the 20th and 22nd June 2017 at the ExCeL in London, as well as the integration between COLDSTORE and Vista CCTV's qulu VMS. Other examples of COLDSTORE integrations can be seen on their global marketing partner stand of Hanwha Techwin Europe, G800, where it will be demonstrated working with SSM and WiseNET cameras.
