Pelco Sarix based Cameras Incorporate ObjectVideo Analytics

Part of its commitment to open architecture, Pelco has embedded ObjectVideo OnBoard analytics into its Sarix-based megapixel camera

CLOVIS, CA, AUGUST 13, 2009 —

Pelco is pleased to announce its integration with ObjectVideo, the leader in intelligent video. In the ongoing commitment to open architecture solutions, Pelco has embedded the ObjectVideo OnBoard suite of analytics software into its Sarix™-based megapixel series camera.

“The type of flexibility that ObjectVideo’s software provides is a perfect example of our commitment to openness and interoperability,” says Dave DeLisser, Pelco Director of Integration. “By using the open architecture capabilities of Sarix to host the industry leading analytics from ObjectVideo we are able to provide intelligent megapixel camera solutions.”

Key to this open and interoperable strategy is Pelco’s participation in the OV Ready Partner Network. According to Pelco management, this enables third-party systems that are also part of the OV Ready Partner Network, to set rules, receive alerts and configure communications with ObjectVideo-enabled Sarix-based technology cameras. OV Ready is ObjectVideo’s network protocol for interoperability of intelligent devices and video management platforms.

“Pelco has a tremendous reputation for providing great products and customer service, so the incorporation of ObjectVideo analytics into the Sarix camera line is a natural fit,” says David McGuinness, ObjectVideo CEO.
