Qognify Launches Web-based Central VMS Management Platform for Ocularis
The integration of Qognify’s Umbrella with Ocularis provides enterprise organizations with a comprehensive view, monitoring the status of every connected camera and server.
PEARL RIVER, N.Y. — Qognify, a technology solution provider for physical security and enterprise incident management, announces the launch of its web-based central VMS management platform, Umbrella, for Ocularis.
Ocularis customers with large or distributed video surveillance installations can now use Umbrella to centrally monitor and remotely manage and configure every VMS installation across their deployment.
Qognify says as video surveillance projects become larger and more complex, they also demand more resources and incur increasing operational costs. It adds that modifying the configuration of multiple sites is time-consuming and monitoring the health status of all servers and cameras across every location is a challenge. Consequently, organizations frequently over-spend on technical expertise and unnecessary licenses, as well as potentially exposing themselves to regulatory risk.
It is for these reasons Qognify decided to make its management and monitoring platform Umbrella available for Ocularis VMS, too. Umbrella is now fully integrated with Ocularis and can be either hosted in the Cloud (e.g., on Microsoft Azure and AWS) or on-premise.
It provides enterprise organizations with a comprehensive view, monitoring the status of every connected camera and server, highlighting those which require attention, according to the company.
Any changes to the video system can be configured from a central point, using the Umbrella interface, and immediately deployed where it is required, either to an individual system or to multiple Ocularis Recorder systems.
Umbrella for Ocularis is well-suited for any enterprise that places an emphasis on tactical real-time and live visualization for its security and surveillance operations, such as education institutions, public safety departments and healthcare organizations.
Ari Robinson, head of Ocularis product management at Qognify, says, “Umbrella is a powerful platform that combines perfectly with Ocularis, to provide our customers with the ability to closely monitor and manage their entire video management system, no matter how large or distributed it may be.”
Umbrella for Ocularis is included in the Ocularis Ultimate package and can be purchased as an extension for Ocularis Professional and Ocularis Enterprise.
