Does Your VMS Pass the PEER Test?

Instead of comparing Arteco to other VMS platforms, we ask you to compare other VMS platforms to Arteco’s to see if they pass our “PEER” test.  Here is how it goes:

P = Is PRICE per channel of your current VMS the lowest in Class for the industry?
E = Is your current VMS EASY to Use, Install and Support?
E = Does your VMS focus on EVENTS to highlight what is important to your needs?
R = Does your VMS manage your RESOURCES  efficiently?
P = Is PRICE per channel of your current VMS the lowest in Class for the industry?
Price is key to Arteco’s product offering and they are 100% focused on offering the best price per channel in the VMS class with integrated analytics.  Studies show that 85% of all video analytics applications in the market fall under what we define as area analytics; this is your Virtual Trip-wire, Loitering, and Violated Area applications meant to detect and stop Trespassing.  It requires the least amount of time to set-up, very little tuning after the fact, and achieves very high accuracy (90-95%) in outdoor environments.  Arteco recognizes that this is the Optimum Factor for the Video Analytics market and make it available on the PROFESSIONAL line at a highly competitive price compared to standard VMS systems!
E = Is your current VMS EASY to Use, Install and Support?
Arteco’s VMS platform, ARTECO-LOGIC Next, is one of the simplest software’s on the market.  There is one central administrative user interface that can be completely customizable for each individual user and you can access multiple serves at once with the same log-in information.  There is remote access to all functions from anywhere in the world, including mobile applications for Apple, Andriod and Blackberry devices.  Most importantly to ease of use, is that you can get the system up and running fast and it can take less than one minute to set-up certain analytics.
E = Does your VMS focus on EVENTS to highlight what is important to your needs?
Arteco is an event driven system because the analytic engine provides actionable information in real time to allow each camera to be purposeful as opposed to other systems that are forensic in nature.   Arteco offers a variety of ways to notify operators of events: audible, visual, and messaging and via the use of the advanced Mapping interface that provides not only visual notification but also live and recorded views.

R = Does your VMS manage your RESOURCES  efficiently?
One of the biggest concern with IP video is the efficiency with which you manage resources.  With Arteco you are able to manage your bandwidth, storage and physical monitoring to ensure your system is operating at top performance. Lest not forget the important aspect of storage which can be maximized by using analytics to create events for further review thus minimizing the storage requirements and enhancing your resource allocation.
