Challenge and Solution
Building is a venue for social activities such as economic, productive, cultural and entertainment activities. A comprehensive and sophisticated building surveillance solution should take the specific social activities and personal behavior into consideration. It needs to protect the privacy of individuals, and meanwhile be able to cover all critical areas without any blind spot.
Based on scenes, building surveillance solution can be further divided into: hotels, office buildings, hospitals, residential buildings and so on. Uniview has been dedicating to the surveillance industry for years, accumulated experience and knowledge on varied building scenes, and presented comprehensive building surveillance solutions which can be applied to all kinds of building surveillance scenes. In case of special applications, Uniview can also provide solutions to support.
Lobby is not only the main area for entrance and exit, but also the key area where staff frequently interact with visitors. In order to monitor lobby clearly, cameras need to adapt to various scenes and different building layouts.
UNV WDR cameras combine Sony STARVIS sensor technology with our self-developed ISP processing technology to fully utilize sensor's potential and imaging performance, deliver clear and visible images under high-contrast lighting condition. It is particularly ideal for entrances and exits.
4K fisheye cameras are ideal for sites with high floor height, large and wide areas such as lobby. UNV 4K fisheye fixed dome supports ceiling, wall and desktop mounting modes. It provides up to 16 kinds of de-warping modes including panoramic view interacted with UNV NVR and EZVMS.
Public Areas and Interior Areas
Public areas (canteens, corridors and gymnasiums) and interior areas (offices, file rooms and storage rooms) have different feaures and mornitoring needs. A comprehensive and sophisticated building surveillance solution needs to adapt to different scenes accordingly.
In order to better protect privacy, a mask area could be configured on monitoring area on certain scenarios such as the numeric keypad of an ATM machine. When PTZ dome camera changes the position or zooms, the privacy mask will be adjusted accordingly to protect the area all along.
One single monitoring image can display up to 8 privacy masks. Certain models of UNV cameras support to configure up to 24 privacy masks.
Smart IR is an intelligent IR adaptive control technology which can balance the luminance level between distant and nearby areas so that the cameras are able to provide consistent clear image under low Lux scenes.
Certain models of UNV cameras with LED Infrared enable the IR illumination to reach up to 200m (656ft). UNV PTZ dome cameras with LED Infrared enable the IR illumination to reach up to 250m (820ft), and UNV Laser IR PTZ dome cameras can even reach up to 500m (1640ft).
UNV cameras can satisfy different illumination requirements for almost any building scenarios application.

There is a great waste on conventional 16:9 image display format in terms of long and narrow areas. UNV Corridor Mode helps to effectively reduce invalid monitoring regions and shows more details in the important monitoring area. Both UNV NVRs and EZVMS support live view and playback display in corridor mode.
UNV PTZ dome cameras are able to configure preset positions and design an automatic guard patrol route. It effectively monitors large parking lots to provide full-time protection for vehicles and value property of visitors and staff.
UNV 4K cameras can provide clear and abundant details in monitoring areas with excellent high resolution.
High Ratio Optical Zoom
UNV outdoor PTZ dome cameras can reach up to 38x/44x optical zoom. It is ideal for large parking lots, large open warehouses, common community areas etc.
UNV outdoor cameras are resistant to all kinds of weather conditions and vandalisms with 4K, Super Starlight, Smart IR and so on. All of these features can used to secure a building’s perimeter area.
UNV Super Starlight camera series, embedded with F1.2 aperture lens and Sony STARVIS image sensors, provide colorful and detailed video images under ultra-low light conditions (0.0005Lux). It adapts to both outside and low light environment.
Management Center is the main place for security guards and building managers to check live view and playback through Video Wall, PC workstation and other display devices. Also it is the place to verify alarms and coordinate a response through various platforms such as EZVMS CS Client.
System Stability & Data Safety
UNV devices are designed with various high availability functions to ensure consistent monitoring and recording , as well as preventing data loss from unforeseen devices’ errors and protecting customers’ privacy.
1. System Stability
During the period of Auto Network Recovery (ANR). UNV cameras can automatically store video recordings into the camera’s SD card. Once the network is restored, it will automatically send video recordings back to storage server. building managers will not lose any important video recording, even network fails temporarily.
Multiple RAID (Redundant Arrays of Independent Disks) Modes (RAID 0/1/5/6/10/50/60) are built into UNV NVRs and storage servers for better data reliability and higher data safety.
Certain UNV NVRs and UNV Unicorn are deployed with Redundant Power Supply to ensure continuous services when power supply failover occurs.
UNV NVRs are deployed with N+1 hot backup capability. In the same networking system, if any active NVR is out of service, the Standby NVR will automatically take over.
UNV Unicorn can be deployed with a Hot Spare capability. If the Master Unicorn fails down, the standby Unicorn will take over service immediately. All service and data will transfer back to Master Unicorn when it recovers.
2. Data Safety
To meet different storage preferences and needs, there are flexible storage mode options such as Local Storage and Centralized Storage. And storage mode options could be chose based on the different concern of priorities, such as reliability, cost effectiveness or better redundancy of important video recording backup.
UNV Unicorn is designed with high transfer capabilities which enable multiple users to check live view or playback of the same camera through only one video channel of bandwidth transmission.
Admin users can divide into different authority levels through manager authorization. Furthermore, admin users also can log out lower-level users to save resources if needed. In addition, admin users could lock users or set valid date and daily valid time of single user through remote operation.
Video recordings can be watermarked with custom content to prevent video recordings from unauthorized editing.
EZVMS Management Platform/EZVMS
UNV Unicorn is a smart integrated surveillance platform with strong video management, decoding, storing and transfer capabilities.
UNV Unicorn can manage hundreds of NVRs, with thousands channels of IP Cameras.
UNV Unicorn supports Master & Slave Modes which have double storage and data transfer abilities, and users can easily control the Slave Unicorn device through Master Unicorn device.
UNV Unicorn can configure Video Wall function without additional decoders.
EZVMS is a reliable and easy-to-use management platform designed for UNV Unicorn. Its flexible and feature-rich interface helps security guards and building managers verify alarms and coordinate a response more efficient and easier.
EZVMS supports Video Tags to mark important video recordings so that they can be easily searched and properly categorized.
EZVMS supports Overwrite Protection to protect important video recordings from accidental deletion or overwriting.
EZVMS supports flashing alarms on E-maps and links live view on a video wall. It enables security guards to locate alarming area quicker, which significantly shortens their response time.
Integrated with EZAgent, EZVMS is compatible with third-party access control.
Currently the EZAgent supports mainstream manufactures which produce alarm products such as Honeywell, Bosch, Paradox, Hikvision etc., and supports access controller manufacturers such as Tyco, Peake, Das, Newabel etc.
This All-in-One Smart Management System includes sub-systems such as linked alarms, E-map, guard tour system, two-way audio and broadcast, device status monitoring, server statistics, query logs, vehicle management and third-party access control etc.
Video Walls & Decoders
We provide various display size options on monitors, video walls and corresponding decoders. All UNV devices are designed and manufactured at highest standards to satisfy 24/7 constant monitoring requirements.
UNV Decoders support to configure single screen windows with various display modes.
UNV Decoders support DVI-D local input for displaying a PC screen on Video Wall.
