The Top 4 VMS Software Features

VMS Software Features

By Scott Dennison, Director of Marketing for Exacq Technologies, part of Tyco Security Products

All video management system (VMS) software platforms have features that make them unique. Here are the top four features within VMS software that you should look for when developing a solution for your customers:

  1. Fast, easy search and video management. While monitoring live video is important, most end users utilize VMS software for investigations and finding video evidence. No one has time to waste watching video for hours to find a specific segment. There are several different ways to search on most VMS interfaces including thumbnail and timeline search. Bookmarking and case management functionality lets users permanently save, label, and manage important segments of video, audio, and data for later reference and organize them into cases. Additionally, all bookmarks are retained and protected against deletion. A VMS should have an intuitive interface to quickly find desired video and export the clip to CD or DVD or save it to provide to law enforcement as evidence. The easier and faster the search interface is, the more time it saves.
