For more specific information about how LEVERAGE can help with your organizations surveillance needs please refer to the information below or contact us at 1-800-825-6680.

Unified Surveillance Architecture

The cornerstone to LEVERAGE's Unified Surveillance Architecture is our Video Management Suite (VMS) of non-proprietary applications. Our QuickView Pro and QuickView Classic open architecture platforms provide the user interfaces which allow viewing and exporting both live and recorded video from any camera or NVR.

LEVERAGE's Detect Appliance provides access to third party video analytics such as license plate capture or gunshot detection. Further, our Authentication Appliance ensures strict management of user access to video. Communities across America have benefited greatly with their ability to access high quality video from a virtually limitless number of cameras, at any time, from nearly any type of end-user device. All cameras can be recorded at the highest resolution possible with no restrictions. In most cases this would be 4CIF and 30 frames per second.

LEVERAGE's unified architecture enables community-wide shared access to resources. For example, when cities install LEVERAGE's "street level" city-wide surveillance often public utilies, fire departments, waste management and many other community service providers share these resources. Numerous businesses and schools choose to take advantage of our unified architecture and link their independent systems to the city in which they operate in order to improve both employee and customer safety, and responsiveness to emergency situations.

Public Safety Surveillance

At LEVERAGE, we have years of experience successfully delivering purpose-built public safety surveillance solutions.

LEVERAGE VMS - Unified Surveillance Architecture

The LEVERAGE Video Management Suite (VMS) of security hardware and “command & control” software is a crucial part of our intelligent unified video surveillance platform. LEVERAGE solutions deliver the high quality video essential for public safety, enabling real-time situational awareness and real-time response capability. LEVERAGE's solution is comprehensive and delivers a complete end-to-end intelligent surveillance architecture. Our advanced technological features are combined to provide instantaneous and predicative response to undesirable random acts of nonconformance.

Command and Control

Our VMS enables the surveillance system to be an integral function of an overall public safety, security and surveillance strategy. There are a number of key elements to the LEVERAGE VMS combined within a unified architecture to deliver a high degree of resiliency:

Untethered & Pervasive Video

Within our architecture a peer-to-peer relationship between video components, stations or devices is established, resulting in a system with no single-point-of-failure and little to no latency. With our unified architecture live viewing can be done from virtually any type of end user device connecting directly to a camera, likewise recorded video can be accessed directly from the network video recorders or centralized network storage. This eliminates the latency and risk associated with the "client - server" systems of the past.

Unified Surveillance Architecture

QuickView Video Application

The Leverage QuickVIEW software offers a quick view of all cameras though its map-based interface where icons are overlaid to reference their locations. This provides the user immediate access to view video by simply clicking on the camera icon. Such situational awareness enables real-time logical use of the surveillance system as a resource multiplier in addition to gathering and managing forensic quality video evidence. QuickVIEW includes all the management tools necessary for setting up supervisory protocols such as camera setups, camera coverage areas, GeoSpace settings and user profiles.

Leverage ClassicVIEW Application

Leverage ClassicVIEW is the viewer appication. It can run independently or in conjunction with QuickView. Independently, ClassicVIEW offers a drop-down tree menu where cameras can be categorized in folders, such as “Jail Cameras,” “Parks,” “PD Facility” and any other group to make accessing cameras easy to the user. PTZ control, audio and speaker controls are all done directly from the viewing pane. This allows the user to do everything in one place. When used with Quick VIEW, the user clicks on the camera icon and the system automatically launches ClassicVIEW to view video.

LEVERAGE Network Video Recorder Appliances

Unique to Leverage VMS and designed specifically for Police Departments is the ability to export incidents from Leverage Network Video Recorders through the ClassicView application to a permanent safe and secure location within the Police Department network. Incidents are watermarked to ensure integrity, and easily transferred from ClassicView’s Incident TAB. Incidents can be found quickly by the feature that allows for a partial key word search of the title or associated cameras, text, and other data unique to each incident.

DETECT Video Analytics Appliance

Another unique feature of Leverage VMS is the ability to provision situational awareness by viewing a video stream in medium resolution, while locally recording in high quality (HD resolution). The viewing video stream is propagated throughout the network with minimal impact to the network infrastructure. Typical viewing of recorded video also utilizes the viewing video stream. A “Detect” event would extract the high resolution locally recorded video that will be used for evidentiary purposes. The benefit of the unique LEVERAGE feature is preservation of network resources, allowing more cameras without adding expensive infrastructure. This capability is only possible using LEVERAGE’s unified architecture.

Benefits:

  • Non-Proprietary: interoperate with numerous camera brands both Analog and IP since our open architecture allows us to support many of the legacy applications in use.
  • Force Multiplier: allows for continuous policing without officer involvement.
  • Improves Effectiveness: calls attention to incidents that could otherwise go undetected. For example, switching a seat after a hit and run or drunk driving accident.
  • Proactive vs. Reactive incident response: rule based alerts produce faster response action and provide more details to the officers before they even get to the place of an incident.
  • Reduce incident handling errors: well defined automated processes ensure consistency.
  • Forensic assistance: advanced video quality allows the recording to be in focus and stay relevant to the case.
  • Camera Management and Presets: Manage both surveillance and viewing nodes. Uses rules engine, which automatically executes predetermined camera behavior based on events that have been put in the system. In the case of predetermined behavior, VMS sends an alarm to the command center, rotates the cameras and zooms in.
  • ITSA: Automated incident triggered recognition, situational awareness, notification and response.
  • One way and two-way audio
  • Mapping Interface (Vector and Raster solutions).

Call us today and ask one of our public safety consultants to assist you in designing a customized surveillance system that meets your current and future needs. For more information view LEVERAGE Business Class Surveillance Brochure.

LEVERAGE Business Class system is suited for small businesses. A full range of capabilities is available with this system including remote access of cameras, local display of video to a dedicated monitor, and system management with Leverage VMS Classic View software. Cameras are selected based upon the desired surveillance expectations of the client, with Leverage able to provide recommendations for best results. Cameras are recorded locally at the Leverage Business Class NVR. An HDMI output provides viewing of cameras on the dedicated monitor, which are selected by using Leverage VMS Classic View software. Classic View can be installed on one or more end user workstations or laptops, no servers are required.

With LEVERAGE's VMS interior cameras are only made visible to the Police Department if the business owner initiates a 911 call or a panic alarm, while exterior cameras are made visible to the Police Department in a similar fashion as "street level" cameras. In order to manage a large number of business class clients, each business class camera will only remain on the network while it is needed. Once an incident is closed, the camera will no longer provide video to the City. A Leverage “Detect Event” exports video from our Business Class NVR to capture these “Incidents”.

Medium Sized Business Class Surveillance

The primary difference between a medium and small sized business system is the complexity of the network, and thus the additional capability of the system.

LEVERAGE's solution is scalable from a small or "Business Class" sized deployment to a medium or even enterprise sized business. This allows a business to grow in both the number of cameras and the number of protected sites. LEVERAGE's architecture is nearly limitless in the number of cameras and locations a business can have. The image below illustrates a typical medium sized business deployment.
