Paradigm shift in the approach to VMS
The expertise of its hardware and software development teams ensures that Wavestore is able to quickly react to rapidly changing market demands. Indeed, many of the features incorporated into Wavestore V5 have been introduced as a direct result of listening and responding to customer requirements.
Some of these features are unique to Wavestore, among them de-warping software which facilitates the recording and display of the fisheye images captured by 180-degree and 360-degree panoramic cameras.
Developed on the Linux operating system, Wavestore’s DVRs, NVRs and HVRs are rugged, reliable and straightforward to install, configure and operate.
Wavestore systems are also easily expandable and upgradable as and when a client’s requirements change, while Wavestore’s powerful SDK and metadata capability enables integrated security solutions to be developed that will provide a rapid response to dynamic events.
Available as a fully-assembled server or to OEMs and system integrators as a VMS, Wavestore has a proven track record of reliable performance in high integrity security and surveillance applications. It’s able to fulfil applications from small standalone systems right up to large-scale distributed server networks employing thousands of cameras and detectors.
