OnSSI announces the latest enhancements to its Ocularis Video Management System (VMS) that further improves overall security with new features and enhancements. Ocularis version 5.3 adds new scalable Web and Mobile apps, as well as Ocularis Client bandwidth optimisation, wide angle image dewarping, additional Smart Camera Drivers, and Windows Server 2016 support all while keeping its responsive and intuitive user interface.
“Ocularis continues to push the envelope for VMS functionality and performance,” said Ken LaMarca, VP of Sales & Marketing, OnSSI. “This latest release of Ocularis addresses the industry’s continuously growing demand for more versatility and functionality to implement more sophisticated security solutions.”
Ocularis 5.3 features
To help keep users informed at all times, the new Ocularis 5 Web allows simultaneously viewing of multiple live and recorded camera streams on an improved and intuitive user interface. Automatic bandwidth optimisation allows system administrators to control the streams from remote locations to ensure there is sufficient bandwidth available even if pulling video from a remote location over broadband. All Ocularis alerts and events stream to the Ocularis 5 Web interface where they can be viewed and sorted by priority with enhanced control of PTZ cameras.

The new Ocularis 5 Mobile provides comprehensive event and alert processing right from the mobile app along with the ability to stream live video from an Android smartphone to Ocularis. Also available on the Android platform is the ability to pinpoint locations on an online map on Ocularis 5 Mobile. This allows users to see mobile operator locations in maps on Ocularis Client and view their streaming cameras. This provides security personnel in the field with the ability to upload live video directly from their smartphone as events are unfolding. Uploaded video can then be recorded and redistributed to authorities. Camera selection is also more intuitive, and views can be seen in various formats with regular and alert recordings identified by colour. GPS location features for mapping and notification sounds are also included. Ocularis 5 Mobile is available for free on the Google Play and Apple App stores, and is optimised for 3G and 4G networks.
New Smart Camera Drivers
Additional Ocularis enhancements include expanded dewarping support for wide angle images, new Smart Camera Drivers for Bosch and FLIR P and FT series cameras and an updated Smart Camera Driver for Axis and Hikvision to easily add new cameras and support for Windows Server 2016. Ocularis 5.3 also includes 64-bit versions of every Ocularis system component: Client, Administrator, Event Proxy, Base, Recorder and Media Server.
Ocularis 5.3 is offered in three models: Professional, designed for organisations operating multiple locations with small to mid-sized camera counts; Enterprise, built for a wide range of mid to large IT-centric organisations; and Ultimate, created for large organisations with demanding command and control needs and recording server failover.
