Pelco launches VideoXpert™, Optera™ and Spectra Enhanced at IFSEC 2015.

04 May 2015

Pelco will use IFSEC 2015, stand D800, to launch VideoXpert™, the company’s new video management software (VMS) platform. VideoXpert™ manages single and multi-site video security systems from a single workspace interface. The ‘Unified User Interface’ within VideoXpert™ allows up to six monitors to operate as a single workstation, fully configurable to suit the operator. However, despite VideoXpert’s extensive capability and although the system has been designed to support limitless cameras and hundreds of operators, Pelco has ensured its operation is simple and intuitive, to minimize user training requirements.

Plug-in architecture enables efficient system expansion by integrating further third-party security and video analytics solutions. Deployment is on distributed IT architecture, with built-in redundancy and modular, scalable, failover management to maximise system reliability.

IFSEC will also see the launch of Pelco’s ground-breaking Optera™ multi-sensor, panoramic cameras, which provide seamless video images over 180°, 270° or 360°, by using four, 3MP cameras. “The Optera™ series cameras should not be confused with Fisheye cameras,” explained Mark Pritchard, EMEA Marketing Director for Pelco. “The Optera™ enables the viewing and recording of extremely high-quality panoramic views. Electronic pan, tilt and zoom functionality allows operators to zoom in on areas of interest and see levels of detail more comparable to a PTZ dome. Client-side de-warping ensures Pelco’s VideoXpert™ and other third-party VMS solutions see the Optera™ series as a single camera for licensing and video management purposes. SureVision™ 2.0, 130dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), ensures high-contrast and demanding lighting conditions present little problem.”

Also a new arrival at IFSEC 2015 is the Spectra Enhanced Full HD, high speed PTZ dome, with 20X or 30X optical zoom options. Already the industry’s market leader for performance, Spectra Enhanced now comes with a 60 images per second frame rate; electronic image stabilisation to eliminate vibration noise; and SureVision 2.0 with 130dB WDR to ensure high quality video images in all lighting environments. Smooth and fast PTZ control, built-in analytics, single cable HPOE installation, ONVIF G edge recording and HD optimized dome bubble technology are featured on all models.
