Pelco by Schneider Electric recently announced that its Optera range of panoramic cameras as well as Spectra Enhanced high-speed PTZ domes are now compatible with the latest version of the Genetec, Inc. Security Center, 5.3 (SR3). This collaboration reflects Pelco’s continuing commitment to provide fully integrated, robust solutions.
“This certification and integration gives our joint customers two more options for clear, state-of-the-art video images,” said Jonathan Lewit, Director of Business Application at Pelco by Schneider Electric. “These integrations provide security professionals with better situational awareness by leveraging the panomersive experience and the full analytics capabilities in both Optera and Spectra Enhanced cameras.”
Improved motion detection responses
In this suite, the new version of Security Center will benefit those with a need for improved motion detection responses, with motion indicator bars now visible in the Security Desk timeline. Security Center 5.3 also features simplified tools for security investigations that promote collaboration between operators and external organisations, such as support of presets, the ability to display multiple cameras simultaneously, and sharing of select Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) data.
In turn, Security Center 5.3 users will be able to enjoy the advanced image quality delivered by the award-winning Optera and Spectra Enhanced range of cameras. The Security Center 5.3 integration with Optera enables a separate view of a continuous panorama in a single cell. This feature is made possible exclusively through this innovative integration and is the first of its kind in the industry.
Pelco Optera series
The Optera series delivers a single seamless view of a panoramic, 180° scene, constructed from four 3MP image sensors. With full ePTZ on both live and playback video, Optera provides stitched and blended panoramic views to gain great situational awareness. SureVisionTM 2.0 image processing and Anti-Bloom technologies enable outstanding image quality in the most challenging of lighting conditions, without ever leaving true wide dynamic range (WDR) imaging.
Pelco Spectra Enhanced series
Spectra Enhanced provides industry-leading image quality and great PTZ control along with SureVision 2.0 and 130 dB WDR, at up to 60 images per second video. These and a whole host of features make the camera system an ideal solution for detecting and capturing faces, license plates, tattoos, and evidentiary details in nearly any lighting situation.
“These releases further strengthen the tight relationship between Pelco and Genetec Inc. with mutual dedication to an integrated product offering and the highest industry standards that each require of their products,” added Lewit.
