Comparing Optiview Multi-Site Video Monitoring Software Platforms


Optiview VMX compared to VMS

Optiview has released a powerful new remote viewing platform that allows for a Server / Client set up, more advanced analytic features, a stronger management platform, and supports advanced analytic packages based on the users individual needs. The user is able to choose between a free VMX, and a more advanced VMX+ with additional features. The new VMX and VMX+ provide a more stable management and viewing platform for CCTV and Access Control, as well as providing many new features. Not sure which solution is right for you? Contact an Optiview Account Manager or compare the Optiview VMX and VMX+ here.


The Optiview Video Management Software (VMS 2018) is our legacy remote viewing software, and will no longer be supported going forward.
