Introduction: Product comparison
This A&E specification includes all features of the Milestone Husky series.
A. – General
B.General product description
The digital video management system (DVMS) shall be open platform, easy to use and designed with open architecture. The DVMS shall be able to manage all the surveillance-related hardware associated with this project.
The total DVMS solution shall consist of:
Network video recorder hardware
Analog cameras connected to IP encoders
Server hardware with storage
C.Open platform definition
An open platform is defined as a software system with published external programming interfaces that shall enable its use in ways beyond the scope of the original programmers. The open platform shall allow other companies and developers to develop products that add additional functionality and versatility to the IP video surveillance solution.
Software-based open platforms shall provide a management layer that shall decouple software from hardware.
The DVMS solution offered shall have the following:
As support becomes available for future camera and encoder models, the DVMS shall be able to support these without the need to reinstall the system.
The DVMS solution shall be compliant with ONVIF and PSIA.
The end user shall have the choice of hardware he or she wants to use for the solution, including servers, storage, clients, and so on. The solution shall also be able to operate in a virtual environment if desired.
The DVMS solution shall function on any standard TCP/IP Ethernet network.
The DVMS solution shall have a number of existing third-party integrations such as video analytics, intercoms, access control, public address, and so on.
The DVMS solution shall offer a mobile viewing client that shall be able to operate on Android and iOS mobile devices (smartphones, tablets and portable music players).
The DVMS solution shall have third party companies develop applications to function on the IP video surveillance solution.
D.Digital Video Management System (DVMS)
The DVMS shall be a hardware-based solution with preloaded software designed for scalable installations that may consist of multiple sites and, therefore, utilize multiple NVRs to run the deployment.
The preloaded software shall be quick and easy to set up and manage. The solution shall use system configuration wizards and have functionality to detect hardware. The system shall support devices from different vendors.
The software solution shall allow an unlimited number of cameras to be connected when used with Interconnect software.
A single site shall consist of a dedicated video recording server, a management application, an imageserver, a database server, an optional event server and an optional dedicated mobile server.
In addition to the NVR, the preloaded software solution shall have the ability to store video and audio recordings on any form of additional storage selected by the client including internal hard drives, direct attached storage, network attached storage, storage area network, and so on.
The software solution shall support archiving for optimizing recorded data storage through data storage solutions that shall combine performance and scalability with cost efficient long-term video storage.
The software solution shall include an alarm management function that shall make it possible to manage all alarms generated by all the components on the system, including:
Internal system-related events, such as motion, archiving issues, and SNMP.
External integrated events, such as video analytics, access controlled doors that have been open too long or forced open and invalid card events.
Other events from third-party-developed plug-ins.
