The GV-Control Center software is an integrated security management system that provides a handy tool to maintain central monitoring station operation. GV-Control Center introduces a comprehensive solution that provides center operators with time efficiency to control networked GV-Systems and I/O devices. With GV-Control Center, multiple GV-Systems and I/O devices within a DVR server farm can be managed and maintained efficiently to enhance their monitoring performance and ensure smooth operation.
The Control Center's features and capabilities include the followings.
Remote DVR Configuration: Full control of local DVR settings
The Remote DVR facilitates the administrator to remotely configure local GV-System’s specific settings from one single workstation. When the Remote DVR is on the run, the local GV-System loses its full control of the DVR operations and the Control Center takes full control of the configuration.
Remote Desktop: Remote access to local DVR desktop
When the Remote Desktop is on the run, the Control Center will receive the same desktop view of local DVR. In the meantime, the security administrator can remotely control the local GV-System's full operations and even configure Windows operation system of the networked GV-System at low bandwidth.
Matrix View: Remotely monitor, record and playback from 1000 hosts
The Matrix View is a single display where videos from a group of maximum 96 cameras will be displayed, e.g. groups of office area cameras, exit cameras, or street cameras. The GV-Control Center supports up to 8 Matrix View displays with 768 cameras on 8 monitors at a time. Depending on various surveillance needs, the center operator can open 8 Matrix View displays simultaneously to view more videos from different DVRs / NVRs. Each Matrix View supports live monitoring, recording and video playback.
Remote ViewLog: Playback of recorded videos from local GV-Systems
The Remote ViewLog function enables playback of all video archives from different GV-Systems. The security administrator can utilize this Remote ViewLog to save video clips for future event retrieval or for video evidence.
I/O Central Panel: Group, manage and remotely configure I/O devices
The Control Center provides a useful I/O Central Panel for the security administrator to remotely manage all I/O devices connected with GV-Systems. Administrators can group function-related I/O devices together for ease of control, e.g. groups of IR sensors, alarms, or fire exits. In case of building fire, for example, the Control Center can trigger all alarms on the networked GV-Systems and force opening all the fire exits or water spray systems at the same time.
Video Wall (optional)
A video wall is an establishment of multiple monitors on a server. In this setup, the number of monitors allowed depends on the capability of the server’s graphic card. With the Video Wall function of Control Center, you can create layout, Zoom Window and Scan Window. The Control Center can manage up to 200 video walls.
This is minimum system requirements for the GV-Control Center server.
If you want to use optional Video Wall function, build the Video Wall server based on the following requirements too, and a Control Center with Video Wall dongle needs to be inserted to the GV-Control Center server for connection to the Video Wall server.
Standard Requirements (Minimum requirements for GV-Control Center & Video Wall Server)
Core 2 Duo E6400, 2.13 GHz
2 x 2 GB
It is recommended to use the internal GV-USB Dongle to have the Hardware Watchdog function which restarts the PC when Windows crashes or freezes.
2. If you are using more than two graphic cards on a server, make sure they are of the same brand, model and driver version to ensure maximum efficiency.
Advanced Requirements (Recommendable requirements for GV-Control Center & Video Wall Server)
Core i7 2600K, 3.4 GHz
3 x 2 GB
We do not recommend installing GV-Center V2 (Pro) and GV-Control Center modules on the same PC. Running GV-Center V2 (Pro) and GV-Control Center on the same PC may result in CPU overload error or system failure.
2. It is recommended to use the internal GV-USB Dongle to have the Hardware Watchdog function which restarts the PC when Windows crashes or freezes.
3. If you are using more than two graphic cards on a server, make sure they are of the same brand, model and driver version to ensure maximum efficiency.
