IDIS V3.5 in control room.

IDIS has released its IDIS Solution Suite (ISS) version 3.5, which it says is the company’s most powerful enterprise-class VMS yet.

New features and service modules are designed around increased situational awareness, efficient response coordination and faster investigations. A new Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) service is said to enable seamless and stable video and voice relay to third-party devices and software without an SDK or API, increasing system flexibility and helping security teams coordinate responses to threats and incidents.

Improving real-time monitoring, text-to-speech allows operators to pre-set verbal multi-lingual notifications to pre-determined events. There are also real-time pop-ups based on the GPS location of a triggered alarm, providing enhanced wide-area awareness from cameras ranging from a 10-to-100km radius. ISS v3.5 features instant synchronized playback, giving time-synched screen views of video streams across single or multiple sites, removing the need for manual configuration.

A new Event Notification Center enables centralized control of multiple audio devices, giving security teams mass-and targeted-communications capabilities, which can help them to pre-empt security or safety breaches, or to issue warnings in the event of an emergency. Meanwhile, IDIS Person Match speeds up investigations by extracting a person’s characteristics from multiple streams to present a clear timeline of events and last known locations.

Importantly, end users can select federated architecture to manage an unlimited number of devices and sites using centralized and local command and control, multi-layered failover and redundancy offering protection against a range of fault conditions, video wall multi-stream management, and IDIS Deep Learning Analytics (IDLA).

IDIS solutions are distributed locally by Hills.
