V5 Systems, a provider of self-powered outdoor security and computing solutions, has been selected by Pelco, by Schneider Electric , for integration with its V5 Camera Adaptive Platform (V5 CAP). The integration will enable Pelco to expand the capabilities of its world-class Sarix Professional IP Surveillance Cameras to the outdoor security market in areas without fixed power and communications. As a result, public safety can be improved in any outdoor area, even remote zones or blind spots. Pelco is a global provider of professional video surveillance and security system solutions and technologies, supported by a comprehensive portfolio of VMS and imaging products. The company’s Sarix Professional IP Surveillance Cameras provide the perfect balance of performance and value, with exceptional resolution and Smart Compression to reduce bandwidth and storage requirements. V5 CAP features The V5 CAP is an ongoing power, computing and communications platform for 3rd party surveillance cameras. The V5 CAP features: Ongoing power via a combination of proprietary bullet-resistant solar technology and a battery management system Computing platform enabling easy integration of 3rd party cameras Up to 1TB of onboard video storage with the ability to transfer data to the cloud or back-server Wireless communications via Wi-Fi, cellular or RF Self-powered devices for outdoor environment With Pelco’s Sarix Professional IP Surveillance Cameras integrated on the V5 CAP, the cameras have been transformed into self-powered devices that can be rapidly deployed in virtually any outdoor environment. The solution further documents V5 Systems’ leadership in bringing video surveillance to the outdoors where there is no ready access to fixed power. The innovative solution can benefit any organisation in need of outdoor security, including school campuses, law enforcement, as well as those in the oil and gas, city surveillance and transportation markets. Future collaborative expansions Validating the Pelco Sarix Professional IP Surveillance Cameras on V5 Systems platform is the first step of this collaboration. Several more Pelco integrations, including software integrations, are slated to launch in 2018. "Our V5 CAP is an innovative platform, which is proving enormously popular as a platform for 3rd party applications. It enables Pelco surveillance cameras to expand its market for HD video surveillance to the outdoors. The integration with Pelco Sarix Professional IP Surveillance Cameras is part of our partner-centric business model, which enables us to bring the benefits of our V5 Systems technology to our partners in the HD video camera industry," the president of V5 Systems, Mazin Bedwan, stated. "These partnerships support our mission to enhance public safety and the quality of life in all outdoor areas." Delivering market-specific solutions John Roman, Pelco Vice President of Global Strategic Accounts and Sales Support, commented, “We welcome the integration of our Sarix Professional IP Surveillance Cameras with the V5 Camera Adaptive Platform as it further expands our ability to deliver market-specific solutions in core vertical markets. Now campuses, cities, airports and seaports, oil and gas facilities and municipalities can implement the proven performance and value our Sarix Professional IP Surveillance Cameras in outdoor locations where connection to an electrical grid is not available.” The V5 CAP and Pelco Sarix Professional IP Surveillance Cameras combo can be deployed in under 30 minutes, providing security in areas once deemed impossible due to the lack of power and connectivity.
The V5 CAP provides security outdoors, even in areas where there is no connection to the electrical grid V5 Systems a provider of wireless portable security units, has formed a partnership with Axis Communications, the provider of networked video surveillance, to create a self-powered solution that can protect people in the outdoors. V5 Camera Adaptive Platform (V5 CAP) V5 Systems, located in Fremont, CA, has developed a solar-powered security platform that is designed for 3rd-party camera integration. Called the V5 Camera Adaptive Platform (V5 CAP), it provides an ideal portable platform for Axis surveillance cameras. It can transform virtually any Axis camera into a unit for outdoor surveillance that is not tied to the electrical grid. "It is our mission to continue to make outdoor environments safer, such as schools, sporting venues, campuses and downtown areas," stated Mazin Bedwan, President of V5 Systems. "Working with Axis allows both of our teams to enhance the security and quality of life in all the areas in which our joint solution will be deployed." Axis, which is based in Sweden, invented the world's first network camera in 1996. Since then, the company has been leading the way in video surveillance, providing security for millions of people worldwide and helping to meet the critical need for a smarter, safer world. In addition to network security cameras, the company makes video encoders, accessories and application software. Extending reach of outdoor surveillance "We are excited about our newly formed partnership with V5 Systems," said Vince Ricco, Business Development Manager, TPP, Axis Communications, Inc. "We're looking forward to collaborating to extend the reach and capability of outdoor surveillance." The V5 CAP brings security to wherever people gather outdoors, even in areas where there is no nearby connection to the electrical grid. It also brings security to areas like school campuses, city parks and large parking lots that have existing security infrastructure but have blind spots and other vulnerabilities. "Combining our technologies into a single product offering now makes it possible to deploy sophisticated security solutions in any outdoor environment worldwide" Recent trending conversations about Safe Cities have highlighted the importance of providing security in specific areas like campuses. The V5 CAP paired with Axis cameras can now provide a safer environment for students and teachers, without the costly disruption of trenching to wire the system to the grid. V5 CAP features Here are more highlights of the V5 CAP: It's a perpetual power platform weighing less than 25 pounds, making it the smallest of its kind. It can be integrated with virtually any existing camera, enabling it to monitor any outdoor area 24/7. Since the V5 units do not need to be wired to a power grid, they eliminate the need for trenching, reducing costs and saving implementation time. The units can be used to enhance existing security infrastructure or as a standalone security device that can be moved freely in outdoor environments. Communications from the platform are in real time via Wi-Fi or cellular to any smartphone, tablet or desktop computer. The platform can be rapidly deployed. Installation and configuration take less than 30 minutes. ISC West 2017 Mazin Bedwan continued, "At V5 Systems, we are eager to launch our new V5 CAP ongoing power source with our partners at Axis Communications. Combining our technologies into a single product offering now makes it possible to deploy sophisticated security solutions in any outdoor environment worldwide." As part of the new partnership, V5 Systems exhibited the V5 CAP at the Axis Sales Kickoff Event in January 2017, in Iberostar, Cancun. In attendance were over 3,000 employees and partners of Axis and employees of V5 Systems. V5 Systems will also be exhibiting with Axis at ISC West security industry trade show in April 2017
