How Synology helps customers successfully transition to smart surveillance solutions

After implementing Synology Surveillance Station, Taipei City Station Front Metro Mall successfully resolved its original traditional surveillance system architecture problems.

The school found Synology Surveillance Station to be a huge improvement over their old security platform, helping staff to monitor the campus and resolve incidents faster compared to their former system.

Well-known building material chain stores in France efficiently manage approximately 2,000 cameras across 350 stores through Centralized Management System (CMS).

Frequently Asked Questions

What are DVRs and NVRs and how are they different?
DVRs (Digital Video Recorders) and NVRs (Network Video Recorders) are surveillance systems differing in connectivity and processing. DVRs link to analog cameras for recorder-based processing, whereas NVRs connect to IP cameras and video servers for camera-based processing, offering remote access, scalability, and advanced features.
How do video servers function?
A video server (often known as video encoder) bridges analog CCTV and network video systems, extending legacy system use. It converts analog video into digital format for network transmission, recording, and easy viewing.
