Overview

VIVOTEK’s VAST 2 is an easy to use IP video management software (VMS). To meet users’ real-world needs, it comes with exciting advancements such as easy operation on single or multiple monitors, custom layout to fit both in corridor and panorama format, rapid export of multi-channel video and acquiring VCA analytics with integrated cameras.
