“The Understanding Video Management Systems series is targeted for the video surveillance system designer and consumer. Understanding the underlying technology concepts related to VMS platforms is critical for designing a system that best fits an organization’s requirements for their video security deployment,” says Carle.

Ralph Jensen, Editor of Security Today adds, “VMS has taken the place of the Digital Video Recorder or Network Video Recorder in what is now known as our ‘digital world’. The security industry depends upon this software to move images with ease, from the camera where the image is captured, to the central station or storage file, where the image is viewed or stored for later reference. The information available in this book will prove invaluable to industry experts, users, integrators and those entering this space.”
