Orchid Fusion VMS
Orchid Fusion provides a powerful VMS unification platform that offers the same ease of use and familiarity as the Orchid Core user interface, but extends the platform across unlimited locations, cameras, and users. Underpinning Orchid Fusion's advanced management and aggregation capabilities is Orchid Core, a lightweight, cross-platform video recording solution that can be distributed across an almost endless variety of servers and IoT devices.

The Orchid Fusion web interface is hosted centrally within your organization or in IPConfigure's secure cloud service. As a Java-based platform, Orchid Fusion is capable of running on Windows desktop and Windows Server, Red Hat Linux Enterprise 7, Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04 or 18.04, CentOS 7, as well as a variety of Linux embedded devices. In the event that Orchid Fusion can no longer communicate with any of your Orchid Core VMS servers, Orchid operates autonomously and continues to record while remaining accessible via the standalone Orchid Core VMS user interface.

Using a secure reverse-proxy mechanism, Orchid Fusion provides configuration-free access to Orchid Core VMS servers and cameras located behind a firewall, all via secure SRTP and HTTPS encryption. This allows system operators to connect Orchid instances with Orchid Fusion across diverse network topologies, removing the need for IT intervention or special configuration.

User Stage

The Orchid Fusion user interface combines the ease-of-use and simplicity of the Orchid UI with a powerful camera search mechanism. Instantly filter as many as thousands of available cameras and locations using a keyword feature that intelligently searches across server names, camera names, and stream metadata. Once identified, cameras can simply be dragged to the user stage for monitoring or playback.

The video streams you see in the Orchid Fusion UI are optimally delivered to your browser using Orchid Fusion's sophisticated routing engine. When an Orchid Core VMS server is not directly accessible to your browser (e.g., because it's behind a firewall), video is proxied through the Orchid Fusion server. If your web browser can communicate with an Orchid Core VMS server, video is delivered directly from Orchid Core VMS to your client browser. This approach maximizes performance while minimizing bandwidth usage, hosting costs, and custom network configuration.

System Settings

The Orchid Fusion administrative dashboard gives operators a global view of the current status of servers and cameras, including details such as recording resolutions, frame rate, and compression settings. This page provides at-a-glance health indicators for both servers and cameras, along with a recent thumbnail snapshot.

Connecting Orchid Core VMS servers to Orchid Fusion is made simple through the Orchid Core VMS Configuration web interface. Once an Orchid Core VMS server registers itself with a Orchid Fusion server, a reverse tunnel is created from Orchid Core VMS to Orchid Fusion. This tunnel allows Orchid Fusion and Orchid Core VMS to exchange secure, encrypted HTTPS and SRTP data through the tunnel, eliminating the need to create and maintain firewall rules to provide access to Orchid Core VMS servers and cameras which are not directly accessible.
