vimacc Components

The basic vimacc system functions as digital media router for video and audio signals

Therefore, a number of video inputs can be freely assigned to a number of outputs. Data transfer between in- and output occurs in the form of streams transmitted via the IP network.

Video devices that can be connected to vimacc are IP cameras, analogue cameras via video encoders, digital video recorders (DVR) and network video recorders (NVR) as well as video decoders to output the video streams to an analogue output.

The video inputs of the vimacc® system can also be used to feed in TV channels or other video sources if the respective hardware is available.

The video output supplies data that can be presented in a video panel of a PC screen or on a video monitor. It can also be used to retrieve video streams via RTSP from external software, such as a superior management system.

To display and control the data, video image display via software decoders, display servers, and workstations with interactive map can be used.

In the following, you will find further components of the vimacc® system:

Video Recording
The "Video Recording" function is used to store and retrieve video streams. Redundant storage on any number of servers is supported as well.

Comprises interfaces for integrating into a superior management system and vimacc interfaces for integrating cameras and/or encoders as well as decoders and monitors into vimacc. A current list of devices supported by vimacc® can be requested at any time from Accellence.

If required for data protection purposes, vimacc encrypts all recorded and transmitted streams with a hybrid encryption method. This method combines the speed advantage of a symmetric encryption (AES 128/256) with the high security of an asymmetric encryption (RSA 2048).

Extension package "Export" enables the storage of video streams recorded by vimacc® to removable media devices like CD, DVD, or SD cards.
An export can either be performed encrypted or unencrypted according to respective security requirements.

Video Player
To view exported videos the vimacc® video player is available that supports a synchronized play back of multiple video streams as well as a forward or backward positioning of single images for H.264 as well.
The player is exported as 32- and 64-bit version to the data carrier.

The vimacc® HTTP server is used to control the functions of the vimacc® system after proper authentication via HTTP.

Event Manager
The Event Manager enables configurable automated responses to all sorts of events. For example, motion detection, switch contacts, technical malfunctions, etc.

User Management
vimacc® supports a central administration of the entire video system with Active Directory (AD) connection, if required. In this case, the video system can be fully integrated into the Windows user administration (single sign-on). User rights are configured via the group policies of the operating system. Changes to user rights at runtime are applied to the video application without having to log in again.

Configurable log functions for a comprehensive documentation of all system events and user activities.

Video Analysis
Comprises motion detection, private zone masking and anonymised display (pixelating). Video content analyse (VCA) modules of leading manufacturers are integrated on demand.

Audio Input
Using an audio input, a microphone or other audio source can be connected to vimacc® via respective hardware.

Audio Output
An audio output can be a loudspeaker connected to suitable hardware. The audio output can also be used to retrieve audio streams via external software, such as a superior management system.

Audio Recording
This extension package enables the user to additionally store audio streams and to retrieve them on demand. Redundant storage is supported as well. For each audio input whose signals are recorded a separate audio track is required. For each play back of a recorded stream a video output is needed.

Mobile Clients
Software modules for integrating mobile clients are available.

Further functions are available on request.

Customer and/or project specific functions can be implemented on demand.
