HikCentral Professional has playback features to quickly locate video footage of interest with the ability to easily export video clips.
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. — Hikvision’s HikCentral Professional platform is said to provide a centralized software solution to remotely view and manage all facets of an organization’s integrated physical security systems.
The platform delivers integration and management capabilities for video surveillance, access control, video intercom and various specialty solutions such as under vehicle surveillance, along with a host of embedded intelligent analytics and system analysis tools.
“HikCentral Professional provides security professionals with a comprehensive yet cost-effective solution that delivers advanced system integration, control and management to effectively improve physical security operations,” says John Xiao, vice president marketing, Hikvision USA.
The new platform is said to provide full featured VMS operation with remote management across multiple sites. The platform is scalable to accommodate users’ evolving needs and is designed for easy operation with user friendly drop-down menus, as well as detailed device, event and health monitoring features to ensure uninterrupted operation.
Advanced VMS features include visual tracking of individuals across the surveillance network, adaptive video display windows to customize administrators’ camera views, and map management of system devices with click to view capability and visual alarm identification.
In addition, the platform is embedded with advanced analytics including motion analysis, line crossing detection, intrusion detection, people counting, queue analysis, heat analysis, personal article feature detection, temperature analysis and vehicle analysis.
HikCentral Professional also includes several playback features to quickly locate video footage of interest with the ability to easily export video clips in multiple standardized video format files such as MPEG4 to easily share for investigations and to use as evidence.
Along with integrating with other third-party access control systems, HikCentral Professional includes a comprehensive access control solution platform ready for seamless connection to the company’s extensive offering of access controllers and readers, and video intercom products.
Integration with third-party systems is simple with Hikvision’s Optimus middleware solution. It’s easy to create “Connectors” into Optimus — integrations and workflows to meet project requirements — from HikCentral to a third-party system such as access control, automation protocols, HVAC, payroll systems, and more. Connectors can also enable data synchronization and mapping among multiple systems.
HikCentral health monitoring features include the ability to display system topology in real-time with CPU, RAM network speed and video streaming usage. The system also supports upgrading firmware of multiple devices simultaneously with maintenance history dashboards.
