Pelco’s Videoxpert video management system, latest version 2.5 (VX v2.5), is packed with numerous new capabilities including enhanced “Panomersive” immersive context viewing when using Pelco’s Optera camera with Pelco Camera-Link technology and a Pelco “Enhanced” series PTZ camera. This new feature allows system users to automatically and seamlessly shift from the panoramic view of Optera to a targeted subject or object within the same view using a nearby Pelco PTZ camera.
“Combining immersive cameras with PTZs has been attempted by competitors in the past, but our ability to easily link separate Optera and PTZ cameras provides security directors with a great deal of flexibility in how they design their system while potentially saving money by using previously deployed cameras,” said Robert Beliles, Pelco Chief Marketing Officer. “The operator simply clicks on the panoramic view in Optera, and the PTZ instantly moves to the same spot. This combination of immersive context viewing combined with PTZ detail and tracking at distance allows operators to spend less time locating the object or person of interest, and more time recording their movements.”
According to Pelco, Videoxpert v2.5 is one of the larger releases in terms of long sought-after features in a video management system (VMS). VX v2.5 delivers a new Rules Engine User Interface and a new flexible Monitor Wall enhancement to make the creation of any size monitor wall and the ability to send events to any specific monitor quickly and easily. Beliles concluded, “Several features in the VX v2.5 release significantly advance Pelco’s efforts to drive relevant and contextual video where and when it’s needed, enabling impactful responses as well as effective automation. New analytics overlays in the VX v2.5 Ops Center Client allows operators to easily view and then export relevant video footage with the same analytics overlays to law enforcement far more efficiently than what is available in the market today.”
