Video Management System
Honeywell’s MAXPRO® VMS (Video Management System) controls multiple sources of video subsystems in a facility to collect, manage and present video in a clear and concise manner. MAXPRO® VMS intelligently determines the capabilities of each subsystem across various sites, allowing video management of any analogue or digital video device through a unified configuration and viewer. The subsystems can be analogue matrix switches or digital/network video recorders allowing any analogue or digital input to be viewed on analogue or digital monitors. Users can benefit from using traditional analogue systems and IP-network systems at the same time to ensure maximum use of their initial investments. The subsystems can range from Honeywell and 3rd party matrix switchers and Honeywell and 3rd party DVR/NVR’s.

Control of the MAXPRO VMS can be with a traditional joystick controller, keyboard mouse or even through a 3rd party interface. MAXPRO VMS has an extremely powerful rules engine allowing customisation of the system to respond and control in the best possible manner for the application. MAXPRO VMS is highly scalable so users can easily expand their video surveillance network as required. Using an open architecture framework, MAXPRO VMS is able to integrate with existing video infrastructures and a multitude of third-party recorders and devices available now and in the future. Additionally, MAXPRO® VMS includes integration with Honeywell’s Pro-Watch® security management system, Active Alert® and People Counter video analytics, and other Honeywell products and solutions. The feature-rich user interface of MAXPRO® VMS truly offers a unified management platform across many disparate systems to further embody Honeywell’s concept of ‘Learn One, Know them All.’

Market Opportunities
MAXPRO® VMS is ideal for facilities requiring at-risk critical infrastructure protection such as airports, seaports, large multi-site commercial buildings, casinos, and other high-profile facilities. It is the perfect client-server video management solution for locations requiring the use of both digital and analogue technologies.


  • Feature-rich and user-friendly interface to view video from numerous different recorders from a single point
  • Role-based operator privileges
  • Redundant server configuration increases system reliability
  • Operators can log on using their local language and the built-in messaging system allows operators to share video scenes via instant messages
  • Auto-discovery of cameras connected to MAXPRO NVR, Rapid Eye™, Fusion, IP Engine and Enterprise recorders
  • User-defined macros to execute common operations
  • An extremely powerful macro programming language is available to fully customise actions based on events
  • Surrounding cameras mode with presets, makes following subjects of interest simple and efficient
  • Incident management mode allows creating a single clip with multiple cameras at different times that can be played back sequentially or simultaneously through a salvo layout
  • Remote monitor mode allows sharing and controlling a remote monitor while still viewing locally
  • Control any monitor, whether analogue or digital, from a single workstation or joystick keyboard. Allows the system to be used as a true analogue and digital matrix.
  • Ability to investigate events and alarms by simultaneously viewing alarm video at various stages. For every alarm, users can view the video captured during pre-alarm, on-alarm, post-alarm, and also view live video from the camera which triggered the alarm
  • Enriched video viewing experience through the intuitive video rendering engine that optimises CPU utilisation by altering the video frame rate
  • Search and find video through event view or timeline. Preview search allows viewing a snapshot at various times to quickly narrow the scene of interest.
  • Commentable bookmarks allow for easily returning to scenes of interest
  • VMS in VMS feature allows parent/child topology of numerous MAXPRO VMS systems, discover, view video and receive events from other MAXPRO VMS systems
