OnSSI’s new Ocularis-X server software has received SIA’s New Product Showcase (NPS) Award for “Best Video Surveillance Wireless,” at this year’s ISC West. Unique in the industry, Ocularis-X allows web and mobile clients to access live and playback HD video streams at 30 frames per second (fps) from multiple megapixel cameras over limited bandwidth networks such as 3G/4G, broadband and the Internet.
“We are delighted to receive SIA’s recognition for this breakthrough technology,” said Gadi Piran, President and CTO, OnSSI. “The development of mobile delivery of high quality video surveillance footage in full motion is an exciting opportunity for the security industry to support parallel growth with communication and IT advances.”
Ocularis-X enables users to perform live monitoring and synchronized playback of multiple megapixel cameras. Users are presented with much smoother video and are able to zoom into an image without losing detail, resulting in superior detection of incidents and identification of individuals. Compatible with all recent versions of Ocularis, Ocularis-X will also allow VSaaS (Video Surveillance as a Service) providers to deliver high-speed, high-resolution, multi-camera video to their clients.
“Companies competing in the NPS presented the kinds of leading edge entries that are the hallmark of the program,” SIA CEO Don Erickson says. “New technologies and solutions like Ocularis-X are the drivers that are moving the security industry forward.”
More than 70 products and services were entered into this year’s NPS in 21 categories. The NPS has been the premier awards-based marketing program in the security industry for more than three decades. Each year at ISC West, the NPS program recognizes outstanding contributions to the protection of life and property in residential, commercial and institutional settings. Judging panels composed of industry experts select winners in various categories.
