Leverage your Surveillance System to Obtain Business Intelligence

With built-in video analytics, industrial microcontroller interfaces, and video search via meta-data, Symphony transforms video surveillance into an intelligent-gathering system. Detect abnormalities in business processes, track customer behavior, and investigate QA incidents.

Enhancements and Refinements

  • Windows® client user interface optimized for high resolution displays, including 4K
  • Windows® client response time when displaying live video improved by 40%
  • Windows® client response time when switching cameras improved by 50%
  • Ability of rules engine to trigger actions in access control systems and perimeter intrusion detection sensors

Symphony Features

Open Ecosystem

Symphony installs on standard commercial off-the-shelf hardware and supports thousands of network devices as well as ONVIF profiles S and G. Symphony integrates with a wide variety of security and access control products, while its RESTful API and TCP/IP listener services enable it to interact with virtually any network-based device.

Web-Based Administration

Symphony administration is handled via a browser-based client, eliminating the need to install and maintain a separate Windows® management application. The client can be accessed anywhere in the world over high security SSL encryption. Reusable templates and rules speed up the configuration of large deployments.

Native Analytics

Direct operator attention to key events via Symphony’s built-in video analytics. Server and edge-based analytics are seamlessly supported, as well as third-party applications through the metadata engine (see Video Analytics for more information).

Intelligent Search and Investigation

Symphony includes a graphical timeline and intelligent search. By leveraging events and metadata generated by its video analytics and linked systems, operators can quickly find, review, and export video containing specific events or people. Comprehensive reports, including operator activity, event history, and video analytic results, can also be generated.

Easy to Use Operator Interfaces

Symphony includes a full-featured Windows®-based client, a HTML5-client web client, a thin client hardware appliance, and mobile apps (iOS and Android). With Symphony’s camera-based licensing scheme, you can install and use as many clients as you want. The Windows® client includes a full-featured alarm console that links individual alarms from video analytic, intrusion detection, and access control systems to multiple cameras as well as a graphical map, enabling operators to obtain full situation awareness during security events.

Scalable, High-Performance Architecture

Symphony’s unique architecture simplifies deployment planning, reduces server costs, and is highly scalable:

  • Optimized for all VMS functions (video, management and analytics), Symphony does not require dedicated servers for specific functions
  • Built-in server redundancy and automatic failover avoids complex and costly Windows® Clustering requirements
  • Support additional cameras simply by adding additional server resources—no reconfiguration or licensing scheme changes required

Privacy + Cybersecurity

Symphony was designed from the outset with data privacy and security in mind. Fine-tuned user permissions, along with intelligent people and vehicle masking, assists Symphony operators to meet data privacy regulations. All client-server communications are encrypted using industry best-practices.
