Enterprise Surveillance Manager
The standalone architecture leverages a single ESM server with IP cameras or encoders on a local network. ESM is accessible locally or remotely through a web browser interface.
The distributed architecture leverages a separate management server and one or more recording servers for more scalable applications. Each recording server operates autonomously for maximum reliability across multiple locations.
The centralized architecture is used when remote IP cameras are in place and adequate bandwidth is available from the camera for centralized management and recording. This model is ideal for hosting ESM in the cloud.
