VMS (video management software / video management system) is an operating system that runs on a NVR, DVR or server. It integrates all the cameras on the system together and allows the surveillance footage to be viewed, stored and analysed. This has wide spread applications for use in crime prevention, retail management and industrial production.
Crime Prevention – Some VMS programs enable the operator to locate suspicious or missing individuals even with the smallest amount of data eg by gender, age range and ethnicity. It can also tag individuals and view all their movements over a given geographical area and time period.area.
Retail Management – VMS has people counting and heat mapping which is used to determine the number of shoppers and the most popular areas. It also enables shops and shopping centers to save money through accurately forecasting the number of staff required on different days. Other features can monitor the number of people queuing, identify stock theft and fraudulent employee behaviour
Industrial Production – The costs incurred from malfunctions, accidents and other delays can be exorbitant. VMS can identify a wide range of problems from machinery in need of maintenance to poorly stored items. This can prevent the problems from happening or minimise their impact.
