VAST 2’s three new user-oriented benefits are highlighted below.

Smart Search II

Building on deep-learning video content analytics, the Smart Search II of VAST 2 allows users to quickly search for specific objects and people in the specified region. When the People Detection feature is enabled, only people-based activities will serve as event triggers. The security operator no longer needs to search through extensive footage for critical videos, thus improving both efficiency and effectiveness.

Cybersecurity management solution

Offering the complete end-to-end cybersecurity protection, the new VAST 2 is fully integrated with Vivotek cameras and network video recorders (NVRs) and becomes a powerful cybersecurity central management site. The protection includes Instant Alert Notifications, allowing users to receive notifications automatically, and the Cyber Risk Dashboard to visually identify common types of cyberattacks. In addition, users can filter attack logs according to a range of criteria, making it quicker to find abnormal events and take necessary actions to minimize risks.

License plate recognition integration

The new VAST 2 is now fully integrated with Vivotek’s license plate recognition (LPR) / automatic number-plate recognition (ANPR) camera, IB9387-LPR. Users can see the live images with selected information, such as confidence level or blacklist status, which can in turn become a trigger source in alarm management, making it easy to intelligently manage license plate data.
