Enterprise and Factories

What a video surveillance system can bring to an enterprise today is no more limited to property protection, personal safety or regulatory compliance. It boosts the value of an enterprise by making the enterprise a better and safer place to work in.

Security planners face some challenges to build a comprehensive video system

Today as network becomes an inseparable part of our life, video surveillance servers are no longer standalone, isolated, or purely analog-based. It has become a component fully merged in the network of an enterprise. To set up an IP-based video surveillance system, network infrastructure is crucial. Bandwidth, QoS, info security, network services, and virtualization are all the key conditions to an enterprise-level IP network that supports video.
Hence for a good design, the concern and decision making has transited from the conventional viewpoint of a physical equipment manager of security to those of the executives of finance and IT profession.


Remote-Access Clients


Free accesses to your video anywhere, anytime

GVD VMS supports a variety of apps for user's remote monitor.

These apps are available on IE Browser and portable devices, such as iPhones, iPads, and Android phones/tablets. With these apps, you can remotely access some basic features from an NVR, such as video live-view, playback, or PTZ operations, just like you are at an workstation.


Alarm Management

Hardware health monitor & powerful alarms

The SW-E2200 comes with friendly GUI to let you jump seamlessly from the localhost to a remote video channel, or from this function to another. The platform has a powerful alarm management tool to let you define which condition to form an event and which sophisticated reaction for the NVR to take. A variety of hardware conditions can be monitored such as HDD temperature, CPU temperature, fan speed and so on. Users can also set the NVR to email a notice or pop up an alarm message onscreen to call your prompt attention once a noteworthy event comes up.


Powerful user management

A commercial or industrial building often has a professional team to manage the property and the real estate. Such a team may come in various departments. Both GVD Central Management Console and the Device & Alarm Manager, SW-E2200, come with powerful management of user accounts and user groups. The SW-E2200 allows system administrators to manage a user name, password, department, job title, email, phone number, logon schedule and the most important of all, the permission to use a feature or access a part of the system. The permission settings are optimized and categorized in a number of groups, including camera operation, alarm management, camera/system configuration, etc.


The support of HTML-based floor plans

When a building has a large amount of cameras and digital I/O points, it can be difficult for the building’s property management to efficiently retrieve a video or manage a DO point. The Device & Alarm Manager, SW-E2200, allows users to insert a floor plan in the system to get an geographic overview of a monitored floor. An unique utility named Map Editor is bundled to load a floor plan with a linked graphic or text to conjure up a video or an associated file. This feature combined with “video tour” can help property managers save much time in keeping an eye on the vast floor areas of a large building.

"Synchronous Videowall Control" means your operations at the system center will promptly apply to a remote videowall. Supported content and operations on videowalls include Alarm list, video live-view, video playback, PTZ, and fish-eye video dewarp. Also, the UI makes you aware of a videowall's actual location on-site.

GVD's 3rd-party system integration

GVD has a variety of NVRs with Modbus support. Modbus is the most popular serial-communication protocol widely-used for Building Automation. With Modbus, GVD’s Central Management Platform can quickly integrate with the automated system of a building without the extra effort of engineering work.


1. NVR Modbus Slave support – collects status data from a video channel

GVD NVRs support Modbus Slaves to real-time collect status data from a video channel when recording starts, video is lost, motion starts, and DI point becomes active, and send them to a 3rd-party system.

2. Modbus Master / Slave supports – send and receive 3rd-party system data

GVD Central Management Platform features a "Device & Alarm Manager", the SW-E2200, that supports Modbus Master to collect status data from a 3rd-party system. The software also supports Modbus Slave to send status data of a video channel to a 3rd-party system.

3. Open platform & modular designs

Open-platform design is one of GVD’s core value. GVD Central Management Platform comes with open-platform design to take in a 3rd-party system without much trouble. GVD has successful 3rd-party integration cases, including GE for an access control system, BOSCH for fire panels, and Honeywell for digital alarm receivers. GVD products also provide SDK & APIs to provide users with the best way to develop their own applications.

4. Integration Gateway – Interoperates with a 3rd-party system

GVD Central Management Platform is an all-in-one modular platform to provide comprehensive support of 3rd-party systems. Well-known 3rd-party systems supported include GE for access control, BOSCH for fire panels, and Honeywell for digital alarm receivers. SDK & APIs are also provided with GVD products for users to develop their best applications for Building Automation.

5. Modbus support & TCP messages – promise Smart Buildings and Smart Cities

GVD NVR features powerful alarm management, capable of sending TCP messages to alert the property management team of a building. These advantages make the NVR highly competent for some promising solutions, such as Smart Buildings for DCS (distributed control system), such as Siemens' and Honeywell's, and Smart Cities for CAP (common alerting protocol), such as IBM IOC.
