Introduction to Digital China Sm@rtEye Network Video
Digital China Sm@rtEye Network Video Monitoring System is an IP network based
video monitoring software developed by Digital China. It adopts fully digital streaming
media technology to realize unified management of collection, compression, transmission
and storage of audio/video data. It utilizes broadband network to connect scattered and
independent image gathering points and realizes unified monitoring, storage,
management and resource sharing on a trans-regional basis and even throughout the
globe, thereby offering a whole-new vivid management tool to expand vision and hearing
for managers and decision-makers in various sectors.
Sm@rtEye Network Video Monitoring System consists of front end, central server
and client and is equipped with such functions as network-based monitoring, remote
image control, image storage and playback, real-time voice interaction, alarm joint
operation, digital map, network management, billing management and authority
For different business applications, Sm@rtEye Network Video Monitoring System is
classified into Professional Edition SE3000 Series for small- and medium-scale network
monitoring demands, SE6000 Series applicable for industrial applications, and Enterprise
Edition SE8000 Series for large-scale operations-based network video demand. Of these,
the Professional Edition is applicable for small- and medium-scale network video
monitoring projects with less than 300 channels in government, finance, hospital,
supermarket and chain, bank, water resource, coal mine, airport, school, community and
office building, industrial applications mainly focus on remote loss evaluation in insurance
sector and banking network monitoring and enterprise edition is applicable for
telecommunication operation platform to support multi-level deployment. Professional
Edition may smoothly upgrade to Enterprise Edition to adapt to large-scale broad-range
monitoring demand and offer sufficient guarantee the user’s initial investment.
Sm@rtEye Network Video Monitoring System mainly has the following features:
The system is characteristic of distributed design, trans-regional, multi-level and multi-layer
authority management mechanism, and distributed streaming media deployment architecture,
thereby flexibly allowing front-end equipment access and smooth capacity expansion based on
operations business features.
Safety and stability
Telecommunication-level server cluster mechanism and multi-level certification encryption ensures
the operation platform can run in a stable and reliable manner round the clock.
Strong adaptability to network
Adoption of such proprietary technologies as “separation of control channel and data channel”,
“active registration of control channel” and “sending with demand in data channel” allows each
independent system to have access to front-end equipments in any form of network connection just
with a single fixed IP address in video server, such as DDN, broadband, Internet, ADSL, satellite
microwave and CDMA, etc.
Diversified storage modes of video data
Video data may be stored in the subordinate monitoring platform or front-end DVR collection
workstation as per needs, and also centrally stored in the central platform. As for storage in the
central server, it may adopts the following three modes according to network environment and
actual demands, namely synchronous storage through real-time receiving video data as collected in
monitoring points, asynchronous storage through request initiated by the central platform according
to the pre-set time, and manual storage by using dedicated portable storage devices.
Easy multi-level authority control
Adopting multi-level cross authority control mechanism and authority conflict detection
mechanism, it divide user authority into eight levels, by which each user may separately set
authority for each workstation under monitoring.
Sufficient saving of backbone network bandwidth
Great improvement has been made in stability of output stream bandwidth, which ensures that
video business will not impose any impact on other businesses when video business shares
transmission channel with them. Enhanced self-adaptive bandwidth adjustment function will
automatically lower the data output rate to guarantee relatively consistent transmission without
packet loss. In addition, maximum concurrent connections for certain channel may be defined to
distribute requests exceeding the maximum so as to save valuable bandwidth resource in WAN.
Strong compatibility with front end
It fully supports PECLO matrix networking control and offers appropriate solutions for many
video compression algorithms including MPEG2/MPEG4/H.264/MJPEG. Since it is developed
completely based on Technical Specification for China Telecommunication Network Video
Monitoring Business, any equipment complying with requirements in the specification or being
provided with middleware interface may be directly accessed to and used in the system.
Powerful Web browse and remote management function
B/S mode is available to realize all monitoring operations. Administrators can modify various
parameters of all equipments without arriving at the spot, thereby improving equipment
Mature and open system running environment
The system adopts mature and stable LAMP (Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP) open
architecture, which delivers much higher stability and security and improves its capability of network
handling and anti-virus protection.
Complete system management function
It offers dedicated equipment management tools for management of such important
information as video server, camera group, user information and control authority, alarm devices. At
the same time, it is also equipped with such functions as log management and status monitoring to
ensure stable operation of the system.
