What is Visec?
Simply put, Visec is video surveillance software that allows you to see video from surveillance cameras, record this video, play it back locally or remotely. Visec also has other modules like License Plate Technology which can read a license plate from a camera, store this plate in a database and trigger alerts. (e.g. like a stolen car has just passed)
Visec is very easy to use and supports popular IP cameras such as AXIS, Vivotek, and thousands of generic cameras running ONVIF standards... Visec supports H.264, the latest technology in video compression. Visec also has Hybrid support for older capture cards, fire wire, and USB cameras (which are almost phased out of the marketplace).
How is Visec Sold?
Visec VMS (Video Management System) is sold on a licensing basis, from 4, 8, 16, 24, 32, 64, and 100 camera licenses. E.g. a 4 camera license allows you to run a maximum of 4 cameras at the same time while a 32 camera license would allow you to run 32 cameras at the same time. License Plate Recognition is an added service, that can be added to any license.
What is motion detection and how does it work?
Visec® Proprietary Motion Detection Technology (VPMD), is a powerful feature of Visec that can be set to record when there is motion. A sophisticated series of algorithms process video and can determine if motion was detected like from someone walking in a room. This feature is helpful because it only begins storing video when it detects movement, and you can control the sensitivity. This also makes it easier for you to playback video because you can just watch video when there is activity. Visec gives you full control to select specific regions in the camera's field of view and exclude others. You set the sensitivity of the motion, from small to very precise levels. VPMD's precision technology eliminates the need to buy any external hardware sensors. Any camera will work with this, since the motion detection is based on software based algorithms.
Can I use multiple Cameras?
Visec can support as many cameras as a computer can handle. Usually this equates from 16 - 100+ cameras per server. This depends on the resolution, frame rate, bandwidth, ram etc.
