PELCO VideoXpert VMS was been awarded the People’s Choice Award at ASIS International.
VideoXpert is a Windows-based video management system available as either a software-only product or as a server/recorder combination. VideoXpert is available in 3 different versions. Professional supports a single operator and a maximum of 256 video inputs. Enterprise supports unlimited video inputs and unlimited operators, and also gives the benefit of failover clustering. Ultimate delivers the benefits of the Enterprise version, but with the addition of a unified database to allow the aggregation of numerous systems into a single control interface.
There are 4 components to VideoXpert – Core, Media Gateway, Ops Centre and storage manager. The Core is the management hub of the system and controls the system database, enables management of user permissions and ensures the flow of data. This is supported by the Media Gateway which manages the flow of video. Part of its remit is to deliver footage as requested, in the relevant format for the device and connection type from which the request is being made.
The Ops Centre is the operator client, which has already been discussed. One point to note is that functionality of the Ops Centre can be expanded through the use of plug-ins. There are some Pelco expansions available, and third-party integrations are due to follow. Finally, the storage manager handles all aspects of video and data archiving. ♦
