Godrej IQ Vision Cluster connects remote sites for cost-efficient distributed video surveillance

Godrej IQ Vision Cluster is a unique system concept that allows all IQ Vision video management software starting from IQ Vision Lite to be interconnected with Godrej’s premium software, IQ Vision Ultimate. Godrej IQ Vision Cluster provides a cost-efficient and flexible way to gain central surveillance operation across geographically dispersed sites.

With this flexible concept, users can custom build their surveillance solutions by operating any cost-efficient IQ Vision surveillance product to suit specific needs and budget at remote sites. IQ Vision solutions at those sites can be linked with the advanced surveillance functions of IQ Vision Ultimate at the principal site using Godrej IQ Vision Cluster. Each interconnected system is independent while video surveillance can be accessed and managed centrally.

Over time, smaller installations may expand and surveillance sites multiply, requiring advanced functionality, centralized monitoring and management. Godrej IQ Vision Cluster prepares these installations for future growth and enables users to grow their systems to span multiple geographical locations as well as coordinate surveillance and management efforts across those sites.
