eneo Video management software
"Good Times" were experienced with eneo at the Security in Essen from 5 to 8 October 2010. "Good Times" mean for us: first class products, fair prices, personal contact partners and therefore a lot of fun in projects. Partners with a high level of commitment can join our partner programme and benefit from a wide range of other services from our support, sales and marketing staff. For more information please visit http://www.eneo-security.com/goodtimes. Present and prospective eneo customers used the opportunity to learn about the "Good Times" and our comprehensive range of IP-based and analogue solutions for video surveillance. Centre stage is occupied by the Zelaris Management Software for bringing all video signals from well-known IP suppliers to an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface. Numerous functions such as OPC connection and analysis tools make Zelaris one of the most powerful solutions on the market. For less demanding tasks, you can fall back on our Nimra and ONVIF-capable Numina freeware solutions shipped with all N Series IP products. And eneo also has the ideal products ready for special applications: VPT Series Pan/Tilt Heads now feature network control. Nearly all eneo IP products support the ONVIF standard so that they work together with products from other suppliers. For analogue applications the VKC(D)-1375 Camera and Dome are the ideal choice - their numerous analysis functions support automated surveillance. Interest was also focussed on the Plug & Play cameras in the new bullet housing protected compliant with IP68 which makes them the ideal choice for outdoor use. And with HDcctv eneo presented a study at the Security that could help to give the coax cable new meaning: HD video imagery transmission in an analogue infrastructure.
The new Zelaris Elements freeware is a free, fully functional software solution for the management of IP-based video surveillance systems made up of eneo products and it does not have any restrictions such as a forced restart every thirty minutes or other annoyances that bully users into having to decide to buy another license. Of course there are differences to the purchasable versions, but whoever places value on ‘elementary' functions will be happy with Zelaris Elements. What does Elements actually offer in practice?Zelaris ElementDisplay, recording and management of up to 16 eneo IP cameras from the well-known user-friendly Zelaris user interface are possible with Elements. Cameras are recognised automatically, so integration is problem-free with even only a small knowledge of networking. All connected cameras can then be managed centrally. The responsible security personnel are noticed automatically should a camera malfunction when, for instance, the cable has been cut. The recording time is seven days with video imagery from all sources being saved in 720x576pixels and 25 frames per second - i.e. in real-time. And of course it is also possible to record Full HD video signals. Effective compression and therefore lower bandwidth and memory requirements is provided by selecting MJPEG, MPEG4 or H.264 compression. Sequences up to five minutes long (e.g. for preservation of evidence) can be exported as AVI files. Manual control of dome cameras as well as the capability of programming tours for security personnel are additional functions.Difference between the versionsAnd the differences to the Basic, Server, Client and Control versions? The most important difference is that Elements supports exclusively eneo IP cameras, and it also does not have an ONVIF interface. Further differences lie in the maximum number of connectable cameras as well as the different recording options (according to a schedule or only in an alarm situation), operation of multiple displays, site plan display and analysis functions. Can the other versions do considerably more than Elements? Of course, but this is also why they are not for free.
