Implementing a professional Video Management System (VMS) for small and medium business (SMB) applications is now more convenient and economically practical with the introduction of VideoXpert Professional from Pelco by Schneider Electric. VideoXpert Professional is designed for small to medium-sized installations with easy plug-and-play installation, complete with IT-friendly Windows and an intuitive interface for ease of operation.

“Control with Confidence” demo license

To help catapult the launch, Pelco is offering an exclusive “Control with Confidence” one-year, free software-only demo license to users and integrators for up to four channels. “VideoXpert Professional is a real game changer. It provides SMB users with the ability to easily control and manage surveillance cameras with advanced features and capabilities and exceptional cost efficiency. And it’s also designed for easy installation, so users can be up and running very quickly,” said Jonathan Farmer, Senior Product Manager, Pelco by Schneider Electric. “We’re so confident that VideoXpert Professional is the VMS solution that SMBs have been waiting for, we are launching it in conjunction with our unique ‘Control with Confidence’ free software-only demo licenses so they can experience it for themselves!”

VideoXpert Professional bridges the gap between mid-market and enterprise-level VMS platforms. With a selection of servers designed to handle up to 100 cameras, VideoXpert Professional delivers a VMS solution that can be modularly scaled by adding VX Pro servers to meet future system expansion needs.

Vast VMS capabilities

With all essential functions on a single machine, easy access to actionable information, and pre-defined roles for easy user creation, VideoXpert Professional provides SMBs with extensive VMS capabilities. Featuring Dell hardware, VideoXpert Professional users will have the added benefit of leveraging Dell support tools and apps. Advanced features include: hardware acceleration which allows users to display high MP camera images more easily; H.264 coding over WAN transport; anti-virus support on the ops centre client; and simple export procedures that allow quick and easy handoff of video data to law enforcement agencies.

Another core feature of VideoXpert Professional is its extreme ease of installation, which can take place in well under 20 minutes – from unpacking to implementation – with little to no previous VMS experience required. Available June 30, 2017, VideoXpert Professional can be ordered as software only; as Pelco-supplied hardware with channel licenses; or bundled with Pelco supplied-hardware and loaded with software and SUP. In addition, Pelco offers a powerful workstation and three server options to further enhance VideoXpert Professional.
