Honeywell Digital Video Manager Connects Organizations to Smarter Security and Surveillance
Latest release of video technology taps
Internet of Things, building connectivity and open standards to improve
operator efficiency, drive deeper insights and speed response times
ATLANTA, Sept. 25, 2017 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON), a global leader in connected buildings, today announced an enhanced version of Honeywell Digital Video Manager (DVM) that offers smarter security and surveillance capabilities for today’s increasingly complex building environments. The new release, DVM R620, enables organizations to more easily secure large-scale security operations with features that improve operator efficiency and situational awareness for faster incident identification and resolution, and power more accurate and reliable security operations.
DVM R620 is well suited for a range of facilities, including complex security installations with stringent requirements—such as airports, correctional facilities, hospitals, higher education campuses and smart cities. It features an enhanced user interface and includes major updates to how operators can capture, access and manage live and recorded video, reliably and efficiently. Based on a highly available distributed architecture, the system features edge recording playback and backfill capabilities, capturing video footage on camera memory cards, and then backfilling the footage to the system’s main server. These features make the system more resilient in response to interruptions ranging from routine system maintenance, to network or server failures and cybersecurity issues, and ensure cameras more consistently and reliably capture video footage, wherever they are located.
In addition, DVM R620 includes an
improved and more intuitive user interface and features that improve
the user experience, making it easier to learn and operate, which helps
improve operator productivity for faster incident response. New
productivity features include bookmarking, which lets operators easily
annotate and navigate video footage. This enables faster footage
identification and retrieval for evidentiary purposes—critical in
today’s security environments, which can include thousands of cameras
capturing hours of footage.
DVM R620 also supports open standards like the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard, driving deeper levels of interoperability and connectivity so organizations can more easily integrate an even wider range of video cameras and third-party systems like analytics as they adapt to changing security threats.
In addition to improved resiliency, usability and interoperability, DVM R620 enables organizations to:
· Seamlessly authenticate video footage – When exporting video for evidence purposes, operators can add watermarks or use digital signatures to prove video authenticity and its source, reducing the need for third-party applications.
· Keep footage secure – DVM R620 exports footage in password-protected files to promote safety and security.
· Use network and hardware resources more efficiently – The system uses a lower resolution for video streams, freeing up valuable network bandwidth and requiring less from individual monitors for decompressing and video rendering. As a result, organizations can lower hardware costs and view more cameras within a single view.
DVM is a component of Honeywell Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI), an award-winning building management system that ties all aspects of a security solution together, including video surveillance, access control and intrusion detection. EBI also integrates comfort, life safety, energy and other core facility controls, providing users a single point of access to the essential information and resources needed to monitor, manage and protect a facility, campus or multi-site operation. As a result, security operators have improved visibility and intelligence, and the ability to deploy their staff and resources more efficiently and effectively.
DVM and EBI are designed to work with
systems from Honeywell Home and Building Technologies, which creates
products, software and technologies found in more than 10 million
buildings worldwide. Its connected buildings services help make
facilities more comfortable, intuitive and productive.
