After a video surveillance security camera captures live video, it is processed and sent over a local private network for storage on an integrated video server (IVS). In some instances, integrated video servers also employ cloud storage of video events.

With cloud storage, IVS makes it possible to view and share video clips remotely from your mobile device or personal computer, such as with DGA's OneVIEW system. Depending on your system, your video server may also come with cloud-based system health monitoring and event reports.

Integrated video servers integrate easily into existing IT infrastructure and communicate with cloud-based servers for a secure and reliable video surveillance system. With advanced system management capabilities, large amounts of internal storage space, and compression ability, they are designed to meet the needs of virtually any business.
