The State of Physical Access Control in EMEA Businesses – 2020 Report

Honeywell releases enhanced digital video management software: DVM R620

The latest release of Honeywell’s digital video management technology exploits Internet of Things (IoT) to improve connectivity. It also uses open standards to improve operator efficiency and improve response times. The new release, called DVM R620, lets organisations more easily secure large-scale security operations. The features include improved operator efficiency and situational awareness to speed up incident identification and resolution.

DVM R620 can be deployed in a range of facilities, including those with complex security arrangements and specific/stringent requirements. For example airports, prisons, hospitals, universities and colleges and urban areas.

The system

The latest software features an enhanced user interface. It includes updates to enable operators to capture, view and manage live and recorded video with ease.

The system uses edge recording playback and backfill capabilities for capturing video footage on camera memory cards. The footage is then backfilled to the system’s main server. This makes the system more resilient even when interruptions occur, such as server failures or cybersecurity threats and breaches. The cameras are able to consistently and reliably capture video footage.

DVM R620 also includes a more intuitive user interface making it easier to learn and operate. New productivity features include bookmarking, where operators annotate and navigate video footage, for faster footage identification and also retrieval. This development is key since security operations at large sites, like airports, can include thousands of cameras capturing hours of footage.

Interopability

DVM R620 also supports open standards like the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard. Such standards are important for enabling interopability and connectivity so organisations can more easily integrate different makes and models of video cameras and third-party systems like analytics in order to adapt to changing security threats.

Clients

One client for DVM R620 is Marywood University in Pennsylvania. “Our security department’s primary mission is to keep students and faculty safe and secure, and we look to technology to bolster these efforts so we can be as effective as possible,” said Myron Marcinek, director of facilities for Marywood University.

The software makes finding footage, from more than 80 cameras around the campus, easier so security officers can spend more time on foot where they’re most effective.

DVM R620 enables organisations to authenticate video footage with watermarks or digital signatures, when exporting video for use as evidence. The software also keeps footage secure by exporting it in password-protected files.

DVM R620 uses network and hardware resources more efficiently. For example, by using a lower resolution for video streams, valuable network bandwidth is made available also requiring less from individual monitors for decompressing and video rendering. Organisations can lower hardware costs and view more cameras within a single view.

Wayne Memorial Hospital, a not-for-profit facility in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, also uses DVM R620 to improve its safety and security operations and standardise compilation of video footage for multiple uses.
