Briefcam – Video Synopsis – GVD appointed distributor in Ireland What is Video Synopsis? Video Synopsis is the simultaneous presentation of multiple objects & activities that have occurred at different times BriefCam’s Video Synopsis technology lets
processes video from existing systems and
that can be called on to create a video
compacting daily and weekly events into
routine. It enables operators to use their
the Milestone XProtect environment and
users browse hours of video in minutes, a “brief” for rapid review. The software imports &
makes total video review part of the daily experience & instincts to make decisions faster and better. This is an ideal add on
for busy sites such as shopping centres,
car parks & town centres. The BriefCam Embedded Viewer for the Milestone
XProtect Smart Client user interface
is a fully embedded plug-in that lets
Milestone users take full advantage of BriefCam’s VS Online, which receives real-time feed from the Milestone
XProtect video management software (VMS). The BriefCam server processes the data to produce a database
summary on demand – all without exiting Smart Client interface.
The result: users receive a “brief” that
enables the rapid review of events for
evidence discovery. Using Video Synopsis, a day of surveillance camera footage can be summarized into a video clip as short as one minute, leading to a significant reduction in the effort and expense required to review stored video.

Ireland’s Largest Wireless Fire Detection System The largest wireless fire detection system in Ireland has been installed to protect the James Joyce Library building in the UCD Belfield complex in Dublin One of the largest library buildings in Ireland, it supports the learning, teaching and research needs of some 24,000 students and academic staff. Meeting the library’s highly complex set of fire protection and evacuation requirements was the responsibility of DML Fire Systems Ltd. who were responsible for the installation, and commissioning of the system during the 4 week fit out program.
The system, which was supplied by EMS Irish distributor Vision Radio Fire, consists of four master/sub master panels, and fourteen range expander panels, designed to ensure the integrity of the signalling infrastructure throughout the multi storey concrete building. Fourteen four-channel Vesda Laser Scanner air-sampling panels protect the Library
Book area, and there are over 1500 wireless devices, including smoke detectors, heat detectors, break glass units, input/ output units and sounder strobes. EMS wire free solutions are suitable for use in buildings of any size or construction, and offer numerous advantages including, speed of installation, lack of disruption, and minimising damage to the fabric of the property.
