Apollo has expanded the
functionality of its enterprise class solutions by
adding a digital video module. Integration with
access control and system provides such benefits
as: video and alarm association, pre-alarm
recording, events reports with associated video
data, and ability to control all systems from the
same user interface. Apollo APACS security
system software now supports 4/8/16-camera
digital video recorders and provides easily
scaleable solutions for systems from four to
hundreds of cameras. Apollo DVR features frame
rates of up to 240FPS, audio recording, and
inexpensive and easily expandable storage.
Integration: Events from all sub-systems are displayed via one user interface.
Events from the video system are displayed via the same security management interface as events
from access control and alarm systems. DigiView system events: Video Motion Detection, Video
Signal Loss, and Auxiliary Alarm Inputs.
Video system events are treated in the same manner as all other events. They appear on the graphic
maps and have to be acknowledged by operators. It is possible to link automatic reactions, like
playing sound files or controlling relay outputs with events from the video system.
Control all systems from the same user interface.
DigiView control window is fully integrated with APACS software and features the following
manual functions: start and stop recording, select camera, pan-tilt-zoom, start sequence, export
snapshot, switch between cameras, select prepositions, multiplexed view, video clip playback, export
part or complete video clip, export snapshot.
Automatic links between events and DVR functions.
Some of the actions, like starts and stop recording, export snapshot and select preposition may be
executed automatically or triggered by security system events.
More informative event reports
Another important benefit of integration is ability to link video clips and system events. This is an
excellent tool in incident investigations, when a simple click on alarm event brings up the associated
video recording. Since DigiView also features pre-alarm recording the system users get complete
information on what happened before, during and after alarms.
Loaded with useful features
Other feature configurable is the multiplexed view, where operators can easily configure how many
cameras they want to see simultaneously, sequencing, video recording schedules based on time zones
from the APACS software. High capacity local storage and the possibility to expand using
inexpensive external USB drives or network storage.
