In the control room of a major transit authority, an operator watching the video wall sees a suspicious bag on a platform. He has seconds to evaluate the threat level by rewinding the video to identify the “who, when and why.” Unfortunately, the DVR control for the VMS (video management system) is located at a remote operator position wasting critical response time.


Activu integrated full DVR playback control for the VMS into the Activu wall control GUI allowing instant video review for any displayed camera source by any operator.
