The GeoVision Central Monitoring Station program provides an overall central monitoring solution for high-profile security areas in commercial, industrial and residential use markets. Imagine how a security service center can utilize GeoVision Central Monitoring Station solution to manage its heavy task of DVR monitoring and surveillance in a casino for example. Numerous GV Surveillance Systems may be connected with hundreds of thousands of cameras and integrated with IR sensors, motion sensors, fire detectors, alarms, and POS systems. The complete and powerful network structure of the Central Monitoring Station will effectively reduce false alarms and efficiently dispatch the security guards to any gaming areas and the surroundings to relieve alerts.

The GeoVision Central Monitoring Station (GV-CMS) structure includes four independently developed modules: GV-Center V2 (Pro), GV-Dispatch Server, GV-Vital Sign Monitor, and GV-Control Center. Each module has different functions and can be quickly deployed as part of the central monitoring infrastructure.


The basic functions of these modules can be summarized as follows:

I. GV-Center V2 Pro module receives videos and messages, records, generates event logs, and sends notifications on alert conditions such as intrusion, fire, video lost, and system breakdown from 800 channels or 500 GV-Systems simultaneously.
II. GV-Dispatch Server module balances Center V2 Pro network load, distributes client DVR requests from 25,000 GV-Systems to 50 Center V2 Pro, views real-time events, and tracks Center V2 Pro and Dispatch event logs.
III. GV-Vital Sign Monitor module receives text alert messages from 1,000 client DVRs, outputs alarms, sends SMS or emails to designated people, monitors client DVRs’ storage space and online status.
IV. GV-Control Center module controls, configures, views live videos, records, plays back, and manages I/O devices from multiple client DVRs, for the purposes of IT maintenance and site surveillance.

These are the basic concepts and infrastructure of the modules for a central monitoring station. These modules provide powerful and reliable solutions to centrally manage numerous GV-Systems and efficiently deploy the central monitoring capability. Furthermore, they are cost-effective since they do not require any additional specialized hardware to run the servers.



1. Each GV-CMS module must be used independently in one single computer except the combined modules recommended:

  • Center V2 Pro
  • Dispatch Server
  • Vital Sign Monitor (VSM)
  • Control Center
  • Dispatch Server + Vital Sign Monitor (VSM)
  • Center V2 + Vital Sign Monitor (VSM)
  • Control Center + Video Wall
  • Control Center + Video Wall + Advanced Video Analysis
  • Control Center + Advanced Video Analysis
  • Control Center + VSM
  • Control Center + Vital Sign Monitor (VSM) + Advanced Video Analysis

2. Although these four modules constitute a complete CMS structure, we do not recommend installing GV-Center V2 (Pro) and GV-Control Center modules on the same PC. Running GV-Center V2 (Pro) and GV-Control Center on the same PC may result in CPU overload error or system failure.
