The GV-Center V2 Pro is a professional version of Central Monitoring Station (CMS) software that can be installed in a CMS server. It brings multiple GeoVision GV-System / GV-VMS together into an integrated interface, allowing the operator to manage several systems from one point of control. The GV-Center V2 Pro can manage 500 GV-System / GV-VMS and receive video images from maximal 800 channels to its monitoring screen. On an alert condition, the GV-Center V2 Pro receives live images or event messages with attached video clips to correlate evidence of activity and instantly brings operator's attention.

Uses GV-Center V2 Pro software on current GV-System / GV-VMS
Saves cost compared to traditional matrix systems or alarm monitoring services
Flexible control and management to 500 GV-System / GV-VMS
Helps security operator verify the nature of the alarm on the spot
Fast to handle alert notifications
Relatively small manpower requirements
Raises the effectiveness of security personnel by bringing potential threats to their attention
Effectively reduces false alarms
Prescription for business security
Panic-button support offers effective crime prevention for convenience store, gas station, and restaurant security
Strong Authentication with enhanced network security
Utilized RSA encryption to protect the data security

Most of the alerts can be verified in video evidence before the security guards are dispatched to the site. We have concluded 19 most frequent alert conditions in a security event. As soon as any of the alert conditions occurs, the GV-Center V2 Pro can automatically activate alarms to notify the operators or the designated authorities, such as security station. The security personnel can thus verify the nature of alarms on the spot and take proper actions. Meanwhile an SMS or e-mail message of alerts will be sent to the local GV-System / GV-VMS subscriber or other authorities, such as school administrators. This mechanism of GV-Center V2 Pro and its security network can successfully reduce the probability of false alarms.

GPU Decoding Specifications
A higher total frame rate can be achieved if your CPU or external VGA supports GPU decoding.
On-board VGA: GPU decoding is only supported when using the following Intel chipsets:
For H.264 Video Compression
• 2nd Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Sandy Bridge) - only support 1 MP to 2 MP videos
• 3rd Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Ivy Bridge)
• 4th Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Haswell / Haswell Refresh)
• 6th Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Skylake)

For H.265 Video Compression
• 6th Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Skylake)
External VGA: GPU decoding is only supported when using NVIDIA graphics cards with compute capability 3.0 or above and memory 2 GB or above. To look up the commute capability of the NVIDIA graphics cards, refer to: https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus.
Note: NVIDIA graphic cards do not support H.265 GPU decoding.
On-board VGA + external VGA: To have both the on-board VGA and external VGA perform GPU decoding, the VGAs must follow their respective specifications listed above.
1. If you have both on-board VGA and external VGA installed, the on-board VGA must be connected to a monitor for H.264 / H.265 GPU decoding.
