Video Management FAQs

What is VMS (Video Management Software)?

Video management software (VMS) or a video management platform displays and records video streams from cameras and other sources. It is also responsible for permission management and access rules. In addition to basic display, record, and playback functions, VMS can offer additional functionality, including built-in video analytics, privacy controls, and alarm management.

Why VMS (Video Management Software)?

A security guard watching a camera feed for suspicious activity is not practical with the huge volume of video produced by today’s surveillance systems. Instead, video management software (VMS) or a video management platform is used to monitor and manage video feeds around the clock while built-in video analytics or integrated security sensors detect suspicious activity, instantly alerting security personnel.

What is a Video Management System?

A video management system or video management platform typically refers to software used to manage cameras and other sources. Records sensor inputs and manages the storage and access to such. It provides a UI (User Interface) to grant or deny permissions to live, historical and additional data if available. To ensure optimal operation, certified server hardware should be used.
