Pelco by Schneider Electric’s Optera™ Cameras Fully Integrated with OnSSI’s Ocularis VMS

Comprehensive Integration Includes Optera Multi Sensor Panoramic Cameras

Pearl River, NY (August 30, 2016) – Ocularis 5, the latest VMS solution from OnSSI is now compatible with Pelco’s Optera Multi Sensor panoramic cameras. Optera cameras include 180⁰, 270⁰, and 360⁰ versions, all of which offer a blended and seamless panoramic viewing experience without disruption or distraction.


“The integration of Pelco’s Optera camera line and OnSSI’s Ocularis 5 VMS provides a powerful, highly efficient system solution for numerous surveillance applications,” said Mulli Diamant VP of International Business Development, OnSSI. “Both end users and integrators alike will benefit from this integration by increasing situational awareness and improving overall ROI.”


Optera Multi Sensor cameras feature 12MPx resolution with electronic PTZ across the entire panoramic field of view to provide highest-quality, uniform image detail. The technology elevates both live and forensic scene analysis to a completely new level for today’s security professionals. The cameras additionally feature Pelco’s SureVision 2.0 technology to overcome glare, along with WDR and low light performance to deliver the best panoramic images available in varying conditions.


“OnSSI is a leading provider of high performance VMS solutions and we are pleased to expand our existing technology partnership to provide our mutual customers with the new features and benefits available in our joint solution,” said Jonathan Lewit, Director of Technology Leadership, Pelco by Schneider Electric. “The broader capabilities provided by the integration of Pelco’s Optera camera line and OnSSI’s Ocularis VMS presents new opportunities for all involved.”

Ocularis 5 provides more robust network and video security with features including end-to-end encryption for the VMS, a scrambled recorded video database to protect the integrity of recorded video, and the ability to record directly to a NAS anywhere on the network.


Ocularis 5 is an intelligent, cost-effective VMS platform that simplifies workloads and management. There is no need to register camera licenses and MAC addresses. It features automatic load balancing for managing recordings across system servers. Unique to Ocularis, Critical Camera Failover ensures continuous surveillance by switching to a failover camera in as little as two seconds. Ocularis 5 also allows for multiple different recorders to be combined under the same Base (including legacy Ocularis 4.X recorders) with centralized user and event management.
