Hi Guys - need help upgrading to a VMS software solution that can handle the following tasks.
The VMS must deliver the following functionality: • View live video with sound in multiple viewing locations within the main venue housing the VMS server. • Ability to export recorded footage with transcoding to lower resolutions • A level of metadata (multiple fields) is likely to be required in respect of each discrete video file (to be specified in discussion with staff) --> i.e. attach notes to video segments on a per channel per time basis • Capacity to splice and restructure segments of native video files to create teaching video files in order to integrate with other teaching media in a multi-media context. This will require the capacity to “queue track” video in real time during live recording and in playback mode for native video files. • Capacity to choose to keep only low quality native video (in low re-use value situations) either through a process of recording both high and low quality simultaneously and deleting the high quality files in appropriate cases, or recording only in high quality mode and converting to low quality for long term storage in appropriate cases.
The server is currently running NUUO Mainconsole IP+ with 5 x Dahua HDBW3202, 3 x Panasonic WV-SC385 and 1 x Samsung SNZ-5200 on an i5-3570 at 80% CPU utilisation. Customer is not happy with functionality currently.
I have read that 3VR VisionPoint has a builtin case manager - will it be an option I should look at?
Morning Bohan. You might want to give Geutebruck in Australia (I assme you are in Australia) a call. It sounds like they will have a lot of what you're looking for. Exported video can be exported in full res (in either backup file or as raw h264 video, if it was recorded in h264) or transcoded down to 4CIF, and has a place for adding notes associated with the video (in the backup file format). You have a Cut-List feature where you can have video clips playback in specific sequence, even across different cameras. And they have a pretty robust database that can be split up into virtual "rings" where video can be split up, say high quality motion recordings go to one ring and low quality non-montion to another ring, and then set different video expiration parameters on the different rings.

That 3VR case management is also impressive. I think Geutebruck may have something similar in their new G-SIM product which is a premium add-on for manageing multiple recorders over multiple sites with added reporting capabilties, but I'm not familiar enough with it to give details as in comparison to 3VR's solution, which like I said, is a nice reporting feature.
Okay its looks like Geutebruck and 3VR will both work (however the extent of audio support on both is as yet unknown). I have contacted both a day ago but neither have call back yet - they must be drowning in sales...
I am surprised nobody has mention Genetec Security Center - which would have this feature no? Okay so I should be testing each myself but, well - everyone has there periods of laziness.
