Product overview - Zao VMS Plus
Zao VMS Plus can be installed either on-premise or within a hosted cloud environment such as Azure or AWS. In case of on-prem, it is installed within a VMWare ESXi virtual environment.
Additionally, the Zao VMS Plus set up includes the “Comm Post” which effectively manages the network connections and the interface with the Zao Web Management solution. The Zao Web Management is a hosted service, but it can also be installed alongside the VMS Plus solution in closed networks. It is used to manage Soliton’s mobile surveillance transmission products deployed in the field of operation.
RASCOW (Real-time Auto Speed Control based On Waterway model) is Soliton’s algorithm that optimizes video quality based on the available bandwidth across all the cellular networks, or satellite, at any given time. It adds an extra level of reliability to the transmitting products allowing them to transmit even in low bandwidth or congested situations.
The VMS Plus product will assemble the video arriving from all the separate network connections whether it be multiple 3G/4G connections, Wi-Fi and/or satellite from each device and translate from RASCOW/H.265 to RTSP/H.265 and decrypt the stream. Latency is very low from the camera to the output of the VMS Plus, less than a second, typically 700ms.
