CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hikvision® USA, a North American leader in cutting-edge video surveillance solutions, custom-tailored innovative Video Management System (VMS) software for Omni New York LLC, a leading real estate development company that specializes in revitalizing urban neighborhoods. Using an extensive security solution that included an on-site security team and thousands of Hikvision cameras, the firm improved the quality of life for over 4,000 residents living in River Park Towers in Bronx, NY.
Reliant Safety, a subsidiary of Omni, had very specific requirements for the security system. Essential prerequisites for the VMS included ease of use and the ability to manage new megapixel cameras alongside preexisting installs on a single platform. Reliant turned to Hikvision for VMS software that not only accomplished this goal, but permitted access to multiple users spread over several different locations. "During special investigations, we identified a need to connect with the New York City Police Department," explained Ash Abolos, vice president of technology at Reliant Safety. "We wanted the ability to remotely link the NYPD to our private security personnel, and Hikvision went above and beyond to give us that functionality."
With state of the art VMS software developed for use at the Beijing Olympics, Hikvision elevated its reputation for having an R&D team on the forefront of highly functional security solutions. Though the original software was made for a closed network, Hikvision seized the opportunity to adapt it especially for Reliant. Redesigned so that it could travel over the network to client machines—and link directly to the NYPD if the need presented itself—the new software was introduced as iVMS-5000 Enterprise. Mr. Abolos endorsed it wholeheartedly: "We're thrilled with iVMS-5000 and it has proven vital to our relationship with the police department."
Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA, remarked upon Hikvision's commitment to its customers: "Our focus is not merely security products, but total security solutions for the broad variety of vertical markets we serve. Though our client base becomes vaster, we continually strive to help each of our customers' businesses succeed. Custom-designed VMS software is only one example of the individualized attention we are proud to provide."
