OnSSI highlights benefits and enhanced features of Ocularis surveillance system software at ASIS

Published on 14 October, 2010

Ocularis from OnSSI adds capabilities and meets needs of more vertical markets
Ocularis makes it easy to monitor and maintain the largest video surveillance and physical security systems
OnSSI, the number 1 manufacturer of open-platform network video management software in the Americas according to IMS Research, is highlighting the benefits and new features of the Ocularis software platform at ASIS 2010.

Behind its sleek, intuitive interface, Ocularis puts proprietary technology to work to draw in alerts from across a system and combine them into meaningful events in order to provide the best overall solution to integrators and users. Ongoing collaboration with a growing list of third-party vendors also continues to enrich the Ocularis software and provide additional cutting-edge technologies through its open architecture.

A new feature called OpenSight™, launching at ASIS, enables unrelated Ocularis systems to be monitored within a single interface. Designed to let users consolidate and share information from video surveillance and other systems that are not within a single network, OpenSight lets users expand their network surveillance capabilities by allowing different systems' maps to be integrated into one view, making the handling of meaningful events even more efficient.

OnSSI's Ocularis software platform makes it easy to monitor and maintain even the largest video surveillance and physical security systems. With a highly intuitive interface, Ocularis provides real-time access to video from every camera, in any combination, and manages all the recording, archiving and video format settings for any number of cameras and camera groups to optimise hardware and storage resources and lower the total cost of ownership. Detection and evaluation of events is reduced to minutes using the powerful investigation tools of Ocularis.

OnSSI has been recognised again in 2010 by IMS Research as number one in market share in the Americas for the category of "Open Platform IP Video Surveillance Management Software."

Ocularis can increase the effectiveness and lower the costs of IP-based network video systems

The market share dominance of OnSSI products is reflected across all vertical markets, which have discovered how the flexibility and functionality of Ocularis can increase the effectiveness - and lower the costs - of IP-based network video systems. For example:

Education: Ocularis is an essential security tool for K-12 schools, colleges and universities. Existing IP network infrastructures keep system costs low, and the platform provides instant access to real-time and archived video campus-wide.

Government/Public Safety: Wireless networks can provide public safety professionals with camera views from anywhere in a city and Ocularis simplifies viewing of video for operators and police officers with no training curve. The city of Dallas, site of ASIS 2010, provides a perfect example.

Healthcare: In the life-or-death setting of a hospital or healthcare facility, the flexibility of Ocularis delivers a variety of security levels and surveillance needs, and systems can be installed over time and accommodate existing cameras.

Transportation: Big systems spread over large geographic areas, from bus and train systems to highway tunnels, can benefit from the ability of Ocularis to manage any number of cameras and other related systems using a single interface.

Homeland Security/Federal/Ports: As a video-centric physical security information management (PSIM), Ocularis can connect efficiently and effectively with other high-tech systems, filter out the noise and enable operators to react in a timely fashion.

"The power of Ocularis is the ability to combine information from cameras and other physical security systems into a single, unified, intuitive system," said Gadi Piran, President and Chief Technology Officer, OnSSI. "Different markets use Ocularis in different ways, and the beauty of the system is its flexibility and applicability to the specific needs of the customer. The scalability of Ocularis lets end-users start out small and grow their systems over time as they need to or want to. The functionality of the system also means that customers continue to discover benefits of the software the more they use it. In effect, a system can grow both in size and in functionality over time, with users reaping more return on their investment every day."
