Network video management system

FLIR United VMS is an open platform solution that efficiently supports numerous cameras and edge devices. FLIR United VMS, which is comprised of the FLIR Latitude network video management system and FLIR Horizon and Meridian NVRs, accurately matches any size installation and helps reduce the cost of ownership.

It also supports both FLIR visible and thermal security cameras, including the new A400-EST and A700-EST cameras for elevated skin temperature screening applications.

Video management systems are the backbone of effective security and surveillance programs, and the latest United VMS 9.0 update will help professionals manage facility safety and improve efficiency and security,” said Daniel Gundlach, Global Business Development, Solutions business at FLIR Systems. “United VMS is customisable and scalable for any size deployment in critical infrastructure including data centres, utilities, oil & gas, and airports.”

Administrative centre

FLIR United VMS 9.0 offers a modernised user experience, with new dark-mode for the control and administrative centres, as well as simplified menus and viewing windows. The thumbnail search with digital zoom helps users further refine areas of interest by focusing and magnifying within the video image.

The introduction of timeline scrubbing directly in the video pane further streamlines operations. This software update includes advanced forensic functionality for smooth playback of events, improved sync playback, reverse playback, and resiliency in recording.

The new FLIR Health Monitor tool helps large enterprises to maximise system uptime and adhere to compliance guidelines. It provides real-time system status and includes information about the server, services, and cameras. The application is built directly into United VMS and connects to the FLIR Cloud®, allowing multiple users to access data anytime, anywhere.

Secure communication

FLIR United VMS 9.0 is cybersecurity hardened to meet evolving threat landscape. Cybersecurity improvements include a new password policy, unsecured camera blocking policy, load certificate mechanism, and secure communication between VMS services.

The scalable and flexible architecture efficiently supports systems of any size and can be implemented throughout an enterprise spanning multiple sites, cities, and continents.
