What's New in Valerus

Vicon’s proud to announce the latest release of our renowned Valerus VMS. Valerus now leverages Vicon’s new AI-based object classification analytics for more meaningful post-event searches, lets you archive to the cloud, and enables Virtual Matrix Display Control.


Filter out non-relevant video in post-incident searches

Vicon’s AI-based analytics intelligently identify people and vehicles to help you perform more meaningful searches in Valerus. Object classification lets you filter out non-relevant video in post-incident searches so you can find the info you need faster and easier.

Leverage the new AI filters in two ways:

  • With Museum Search, you can apply object classification filters to your search, and limit your results to just people and/or vehicles, as opposed to “motion in general.” This delivers more meaningful search results, and reduces the amount of non-relevant video you have to watch.
  • With Event/Alarm Search, you can search for events triggered by the object (i.e., people or vehicle) you specified in your camera. For example, if you indicated on the camera that you only want to see when people (as opposed to cars or other objects) enter a specific area, your search results will only include events triggered by people.

Tightening the Valerus/VAX Integration

Vicon’s VMS and Access Control platforms continue to evolve as a unified solution, and as the integration progresses, more and more VAX features can be controlled in the Valerus UI. There’s no switching between applications to get the big picture.

Perform VAX features from Valerus:

  • The powerful VAX action plans are now available in Valerus. You can trigger them manually in a menu, via an icon on the map, or via an input; they can also be initiated automatically (e.g., via a camera’s intrusion analytic).
  • You can activate and see your VAX I/O’s via Valerus. Once the VAX system is added to Valerus, the VAX I/O’s will be automatically added to the Valerus tree and map, and will function the same as any other digital input or relay output resources in Valerus.
  • Vicon servers now come pre-loaded with both Valerus and VAX software (up to 100 doors)—pre-tested and certified for plug-and-play operation out-of-the-box.

Virtual Matrix Display Control (VMDC)

VMDC is now available in Valerus, allowing you to control how video is displayed across multiple monitors, or a video wall, via a virtual matrix. System Admins use a Visualization Grid to set up and control the displays of all connected monitors, regardless of where those monitors are physically located—in the control room, in another building, or across the globe.

A single point of contact lets you control many monitors through a single interface:

  • The flexible configuration lets you choose the cameras and views that are displayed, set the grid layout, and display maps, web pages and alarms.
  • Once set up, these displays are stored permanently, so if a station goes down, there’s no need to reconfigure that station.
  • Real-time synchronization of the grid layout and the player video.
  • The self-explanatory VMDC Visualization Grid makes monitor mapping and configuration a breeze

Cloud Storage Keeps Your Data Safe and Accessible

Archive your video, audio, and data to a cloud drive, where it can be safely stored and seamlessly accessed, with longer retention times. This also allows you to be compliant with video retention regulations.

Combine the performance of local recording with the convenience of storage in the cloud:

  • The Auto Archive feature lets you determine how, when, and where to store your video based on your preferences.
  • Thanks to the seamless retrieval of video, when it’s time to download video, Valerus will find it automatically. You don’t have to know whether it’s stored locally or in the cloud.
  • The flexible storage options let you choose your cloud storage provider of preference—Wasabi® or AWS®—to store your archived video. Once that cloud storage drive is accessible, all setup and archiving is done directly from the Valerus UI.
  • Get secure storage; the sole focus of a cloud storage provider is to implement robust cybersecurity measures to protect your sensitive data, ensuring that it is encrypted in transit and at rest.
  • Direct-to-cloud storage means your video is archived directly to the cloud (some manufacturers archive to a local network, NAS device, etc., where the video is put in a queue).
