Godrej IQ Vision Omni-connect Architecture allows multiple individual IQ Vision Ultimate to be interconnected in a parent/child hierarchy of federated sites. Each individual site in the federated hierarchy is a standard IQ Vision Ultimate system, complete with management server, SQL server, recording server(s), failover server(s), and a number of cameras. Once individual IQ Vision Ultimate systems are added to a federated hierarchy, the individual systems appear as one complete system to administrators and users, while still being as manageable as independent IQ Vision Ultimate systems.

Through the Godrej IQ Vision Omni-connect Architecture, users have access to video, audio and other resources across all the individual IQ Vision Ultimate systems in the federated hierarchy based on their user rights in each individual system. In addition, administrators have the ability to centrally manage all systems within the hierarchy via remote access to the individual IQ Vision Ultimate systems - again based on administration rights in the individual systems.

With no limit to the number of sites you can add to the federated hierarchy and how you link them together, Godrej IQ Vision Omni-connect Architecture is the perfect solution for large installations covering multiple buildings, campuses, or an entire metropolis. It provides large operations with unlimited scaling, flexibility and accessibility for more efficient, cost effective video surveillance over multiple sites.
