SeMSy® III Server Software

SeMSy® III is a high-performance and future-proof video management system with ultimate user friendliness. It offers a comprehensive range of functions, including the display of live images, various search options within the footage, the control of PTZ cameras and an easy archiving of relevant sequences.

SeMSy® III Setup Server Software
The SeMSy® III Setup Server software is the central configuration software for the entire SeMSy® III video management system. The software allows for the definition of the complete system (cameras / encoders, monitors / decoders, workstations, users, user rights, etc.). The configuration data are saved to the integrated SQL database and made available to all connected devices and functions in real time.

SeMSy® III Main Server Software
The SeMSy® III Main Server software is the central management software for the entire SeMSy® III video management system. The software manages all connections, streams, monitors (virtual matrix) and states of the complete systems. All required configuration data (cameras / encoders, monitors / decoders, addresses, rights, priorities, etc.) are requested from the SeMSy® III Setup Server.

SeMSy® III Standby Server Software
The SeMSy® III Standby Server software is a failover (hot standby) for the SeMSy® III Main Server. In case of a failure, the SeMSy® III Standby Server instantly takes over the management of all connections, streams, monitors (virtual matrix) and states of the entire SeMSy® III video management system.

SeMSy® III Failover Server Software
The SeMSy® III Failover Server Software is a failover (hot standby) for network-based Dallmeier recording systems. The software permanently monitors the availability of all recording systems in the SeMSy® III video management system. When the recording of a system is interrupted (fail of the device, loss of the network connection, HDD or RAID failure), the Failover Server switches all streams for the recording on the defined spare recording system.

SeMSy® III Archive Server Software
The SeMSy® III Archive Server software is the central software for all backups of the entire SeMSy® III video management system. The individual backups can be defined and triggered with the SeMSy® III Archive Client module on the various SeMSy® III Workstations. Subsequently, the SeMSy® III Archive Server software requests the defined audio and video sequence from the relevant recorder and stores it directly on the Archive Server or on a corresponding storage system (NAS oder DAS).

SeMSy® III PGuard 7 Server Software
The SeMSy® III PGuard 7 Server software is the central software for the message management in a SeMSy® III video management system. The integrated application PGuard 7 Archiver receives the messages (e.g. status, events, alarms) from the various Dallmeier recorders over the Ethernet and saves them to the integrated SQL database. The stored messages can be requested and processed by any SeMSy® III Workstation with an integrated SeMSy® III PGuard module.

SeMSy® III Sequencer Server Software
The SeMSy® III Sequencer Server Software is the central software for the provision of display sequences consisting of cameras or encoder in a SeMSy® III video management system. The individual sequences can be defined at the various SeMSy® III workstations and activated for display in several splits of any monitor wall. The corresponding SeMSy® III Variodecoder receives the sequence information automatically from the server software and continues the display of the sequence even after the workstation has been shut down.

SeMSy® III Interface Server Software
The SeMSy® III Interface Server software forms an interface between external devices and a SeMSy® III video management system. The interface software receives data from external devices (e.g. cash register, access control, dealing shoe) over the Ethernet and saves them to the integrated SQL database. The received data can be processed and forwarded to various devices in the SeMSy® III video management system (recording systems, SeMSy® III PGuard 7 Server, SeMSy® III Workstation) in order to trigger an action.
