Pelco™ Enhances Video Management System User Experience with Two-Camera Immersive Surveillance and a Camera for Eye-level Viewing of Crowded Locations. Pelco by Schneider Electric made two announcements that improve the user experience for video surveillance operators by enhancing visibility of events and enabling faster response. Pelco’s VideoXpert VMS, version 2.5 is packed with numerous new capabilities including enhanced “Panomersive” immersive context viewing when using Pelco’s Optera camera with Pelco Camera-Link technology and a Pelco “Enhanced” series PTZ camera.
Pelco™ announced a technology alliance with IBM, the global technology company and leader in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), to create “Pelco Analytics Powered by IBM.” The collaboration seamlessly integrates IBM’s deep learning analytics into Pelco’s video management system (VMS), leveraging data from video footage to quickly identify and respond to potential risks or opportunities.
Pelco™ by Schneider Electric announced a new initiative to deliver fully-integrated, scalable solutions incorporating predictive and automation capabilities. The solutions-led approach helps end users better leverage technology to solve specific application problems, improve their organizations’ effectiveness and respond to a wide range of challenges using Pelco’s VideoXpert™ video management system software. The company will be showcasing a variety of solutions targeting specific markets including traffic management, law enforcement, transportation, oil and gas, casinos and education at ISC West 2018, booth #20031.
Pelco™ by Schneider Electric demonstrated how its advanced solutions and services address new threats and challenges facing cities at the Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX) in London. Pelco also participated in the SCTX CNI & Business Resilience Programme. Samantha Bamford, Consultant Relations Manager for Pelco by Schneider Electric, led the “Cyber Security and GDPR for Video Surveillance” session.
Pelco has announced a new integrated solution based on the Pelco VideoXpert™ VMS with Ipsotek’s VISuite 10.1 advanced video analytics platform. The integration provides a solution that increases security, reduces investigation time, and takes the complexity out of managing the video and associated analytics in an overall surveillance network.
We recently discussed how casinos and gaming facilities are realizing the benefits of IP video to secure their facilities and meet gaming compliance regulations. Yet, there’s another reason why the migration from analog to IP video is taking place at such a rapid pace. As gaming facilities continue transitioning to full IP video systems to capitalize on the high-quality imaging they provide, they are also realizing other benefits that include the ability to centralize and manage surveillance operations more efficiently.
Pelco by Schneider Electric has joined forces with AMAG Technology to deliver a truly integrated and scalable access control and surveillance system management solution enabling end-users across a wide spectrum of applications to make faster and more informed decisions.
One major transformation in casino surveillance and security operations is the transition from analog video to digital recording and IP-cameras. The change is being brought about by several factors: some gaming commissions now insist on remote access to recorded or live video, which analog video cannot do; many manufacturers no longer make or sell VCRs; and analog systems have limitations on cable distances and distribution points, which limits their functionality.
Pelco by Schneider Electric, a global leader in surveillance and security, is showcasing integrated technologies which drive the company’s advanced solutions capabilities for leading vertical markets here at ASIS 2017 (booth #2309). Key displays in the Pelco exhibit will feature solutions for city surveillance, gaming, ports, and oil and gas verticals. The exhibit will also demonstrate how Pelco’s portfolio of surveillance cameras and video management platforms combine with partner technologies to seamlessly deliver end-user solutions with meaningful innovation.
Casino environments are difficult, and, as such, so is the design and implementation of a casino surveillance system. Historically, whether by design or restriction of available technology, many casinos have operated on separate Pit Cam systems (for surveillance of gaming areas including blackjack, roulette, and baccarat) and general surveillance systems (covering slot/pokie machines, bars and entertainment areas, entrances/exits and public walkways).
