Hanwha Techwin America,a global supplier of IP and analog video surveillance solutions, today announced Wisenet WAVE, a new VMS (Video Management System) designed to support the advanced features, and onboard video analytics that are unique to Hanwha cameras. Available immediately from Hanwha’s network of authorised distributors, Wisenet WAVE is ideally suited to meet the needs of customers looking for a reasonably priced and easy to use end-to-end video surveillance solution. A highly customizable IP video management platform, WAVE gives users the ability to create tailored network video solutions for any type of project, on any device.

With an intuitive interface requiring little to no training, WAVE empowers new and existing Hanwha IP camera users to make the most of their cameras’ advanced features and onboard analytics such as intelligent video analytics (appear, disappear, loitering), market intelligence statistics (queue management) and sound classification (explosion, glass breakage, gun shot and scream detection). WAVE is ONVIF compliant which allows it to support many other ONVIF compliant devices.

“We developed WAVE to provide a VMS solution for customers across a wide variety of applications such as retail and education. These customers are looking for VMS solutions that are simple, reliable, lightweight and scalable. With Wisenet WAVE VMS, we can accelerate integration with our devices to fully utilize the power of the onboard analytic features embedded in our Wisenet X series cameras. Ideally suited for video integration, WAVE makes it easier and more efficient for operators to receive real-time incident notifications without relying on constant human intervention/monitoring. For large scale and more sophisticated
projects including access control, perimeter fence detection, intercoms, POS or other business processes, we will continue to work closely with our VMS technology partners,” explains Mr.
Kichul Kim, President, Hanwha Techwin America.

Wisenet WAVE is exceptionally lightweight and requires very little computing power; it can be installed within minutes and does not require a system with high specifications.To ensure that every moment is captured and recorded with minimum downtime, WAVE is
highly reliable. Multi-server redundant fail-over is built into the software and ready to be activated with only a few clicks, and without requiring any extra fail-over licenses
.
An intuitive ‘drag & drop’ interface makes it effortless for operators to set up a display of live and recorded images on a single screen or video wall, with customizable layouts and sizes. With WAVE’s zoom window, operators can quickly view close up detail of any activity, and the system’s motion detection and video analytics support can be configured to automatically generate alerts when incidents occur. The Wisenet WAVE mobile app enables users to view, search, and control IP cameras to quickly respond to any incidents from a smart
device, using Wi-Fi or data networks.

To simplify system access and management, Hanwha has developed WAVE Sync, a cloud-based service that enables remote access and insight into one or any number of Wisenet WAVE Systems. Hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), it allows users to share their system without having in-depth knowledge of the network router and switch configurations. Once the Wisenet WAVE system is linked with WAVE Sync, users can remotely share the system.

Wisenet WAVE supports all major operating systems including Microsoft Windows and Linux Ubuntu for server application; Microsoft Windows, Linux Ubuntu, and Apple macOS for the client application; and Apple iOS and Google Android for the mobile application and web clients. In addition, Hanwha includes an SDK/API package directly within the Server application enabling developers to easily integrate their solutions with Wisenet WAVE.
