Unleash the power of Control Center 18.0

Improve situational awareness and enhance response times with cutting edge features

Indigovision Video Security control Center Version 18.0

Take action faster with edge-based AI technologies

Control Center 18.0 introduces Unusual Activity Detection (UAD) on the UX range, and Unusual Motion Detection (UMD) on BX and GX cameras, which provides site-wide intelligence using advanced AI technology. Where UAD is able to detect atypical activities, such as people or vehicles moving at an unusual speed, UMD is designed to continuously learn what typical activities in a scene look like and flags an unusual event. Together, these technologies help to ensure that critical incidents do not go unnoticed.

Easily centralize all recordings for seamless playback of events

Control Center 18.0 brings NVR footage retrieval, enabling recordings made on smaller NVRs to be centralized and easily accessed, stored, and viewed from a larger destination NVR. This is specifically designed for mobile NVRs, which leave a central site or have intermittent connectivity to it.

Leverage better video and audio quality, while using less bandwidth

Control Center 18.0 introduces Opus and H.265 support in the VSM, enabling users to reduce their bandwidth utilization while benefiting from the quality of Opus audio. Ensuring exceptional video and audio quality, while optimizing bandwidth also helps to reduce costs.
