Honeywell has announced enhancements to Honeywell Digital Video Manager (DVM). The latest release, DVM R600, will enable organizations to more efficiently manage their security system with enhanced mobile capabilities and voice command, and mitigate business risk via support for current IT platforms.
Major updates to DVM include enhanced system access and usability, which are designed to improve operator efficiency and reaction time. Security personnel now can access high-definition, full-frame-rate video on a mobile device, for example, enabling continuous monitoring (recording / playback) from almost any location. Operators can also control DVM using voice commands to more easily manage multiple video feeds and request near-real-time system updates.
Along with an improved user experience, DVM R600 promotes IT integration and compliance with support for current Microsoft operating systems and databases, including Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 and SQL Server 2014. (Windows Server 2003 is not recommended because security systems running on the platform could be vulnerable to breaches since it’s no longer supported by Microsoft, as reported, and will not receive further updates.) In addition, DVM R600 allows customers to deploy and intelligently group multiple back-up servers to boost system robustness, which helps protect surveillance systems from failures.
