2.02 DIGIOP ELEMNETS™ SOFTWARE FEATURE OVERVIEW
DIGIOP ELEMENTS™ features four powerful software components: DIGIOP® Connect, DIGIOP®
Control, DIGIOP® Core, and DIGIOP® Data. Together these elements provide the foundation for a
tightly integrated tool to manage your data and video integration requirements.
A. DIGIOP® Connect
DIGIOP Connect is a unified dashboard that displays numerous video and data sources from
multiple sites together in single screen. DIGIOP Connect allows you to have a virtual presence
in all your locations and to remotely manage your facilities, property and assets; cash and
inventory; customers and employees; and processes and operations. DIGIOP Connect uses a
tabbed design with many flexible layouts of up to 36 video and data sources per tab. DIGIOP
Connect delivers search tools, including thumbnail search, timeline search, replay search,
digital zoom, and tours, allowing you to quickly locate, save and export video and data.
1.
Special Features
Intuitive & Flexible Interface
The DIGIOP® dashboard uses a tabbed interface design that permits multiple
custom layouts of up to 36 cameras or data sources per tab. Selecting single
video, data device or entire system is as simple as “dragging and dropping”
into the custom layout. For added flexibility, multiple monitor support allows
users to dock and undock created system tabs with live or recorded video, and
move them to another monitor. This intuitive dashboard provides almost
limitless possibilities for how users can react with video and data
Groups & Tours
For automated viewing ability, users can select the number of camera devices
and data streams from single or multiple systems, place them into a custom
layout and create a group. Once custom groups are formed, users can assign
specific duration time and order for each group and create a tour. The tour can
then be played, paused, and manually stepped back or forwarded to view next
images
Traffic Counting
Traffic counting monitors traffic patterns throughout the facility and helps users
to evaluate the change in the traffic levels based on different times of week,
and time of day
Notifications Engine
Notifications are alerts that bring attention to events. Events can be everything
from the system not recording, the system being online, video loss from a
camera to system loss. Notifications can also be generated by an Action that is
triggered when a defined Rule is broken. When notifications appear, they can
be managed and tracked to resolution.
Filter Query
Filter queries provide the ability to perform granular searches of video and
data. This search feature enables users to efficiently mine the data for exact
events and view live associated video. In order to narrow search results,
multiple criteria may be added to the query.
Thumbnail Search & Auto Enlarge
Thumbnail search option quickly navigates through recorded video by viewing
thumbnails of video segment within a defined search timeline. Thumbnail
search allows users to precisely identify when specific event. Simply mouse
over thumbnails to enlarge the frame of the video to identify the desired part of
