System overview
SISTORE™ MX NVS is a software solution for network-based video monitoring systems. It allows the user to display, record and play
back live images and to access them via a network. SISTORE™ MX NVS is suitable for multiple applications, including office buildings,
retail stores or banks, for the surveillance of rooms, buildings, production workshops, critical public areas or any outdoor areas where
security is important.
„ Quick and easy installation and operation
The system is ready for operation after installation of the software and configuration of the network cameras. Owing to its modular
design it can be updated and tailored to specific requirements at any time. Most buttons are provided with easy-to-understand symbols
that are placed at suitable points within the window. This allows for intuitive operation of the program. Depending on the licence,
display and recording is possible with up to 64 network cameras at the same time.
„ RemoteView Client software
The RemoteView Client software allows the operation and administration of several servers from a central workstation. The images
stored on 10 servers can be displayed simultaneously. Through the integrated map function, the relevant camera pictures – live or
recorded – can be displayed by simply clicking on the camera icon in the map. Furthermore, the status of the connected cameras or
alarm inputs and outputs is displayed. The virtual guard function allows the time-controlled, automatic connection to various server
systems in a specific order and the display of the pre-defined cameras. It is possible to configure remote devices via the network.
„ Live monitoring
A simultaneous display of all cameras for live surveillance is possible at the same time as recording. The system is fully customizable
and allows a definition of all forms of alarm scenarios according to date, time, connected periphery, ambient conditions and
plausibility routines. The system supports PTZ camera control, using either a connected jog shuttle, a CKA4820 control unit, or the
graphic control elements on the software's user interface. The multi-user control function ensures that while a PTZ camera is being
controlled by a user it will be blocked for all other users.
„ Recording and playback
Basically the system allows two different operational recording modes which may also be combined with each other:
− Long-time recording analogous to the operation of a standard video recorder, possibly with reduced quality and frame rate in order
to save hard disk space.
− Event-triggered recording, e.g. with motion detection, is the recording of alarms with their pre-history using a ring buffer.
All the recorded camera images are displayed in a timeline, which enables the desired images to be found easily and quickly. It is
possible to simultaneously play back the images of several cameras which can be freely selected.
„ Motion detection and tamper protection
To optimize hard-disk storage, the pixel-based motion detection system allows the user to define areas of interest in a scene, and only
when motion occurs within this area will the images be recorded. The motion detection can be used to trigger an alarm and increase
the recording rate to ensure that all important information is stored.
SISTORE™ MX NVS is equipped with an integrated sabotage protection, recognising camera re-positioning, covering, spraying and defocussing. Verification of the correct camera position is easy using the reference image.
