The new cameras will combine Pelco’s imaging technology with Cisco’s IP networking capabilities. These cameras will be sold globally by Cisco Authorized Technology Providers and are currently projected to be available at the end of 2009.
“After conducting an extensive evaluation of current technologies, we found that Pelco has developed one of the most advanced IP HD imaging systems in the global security marketplace,” says Bill Stuntz, general manager and vice president of the Cisco’s physical security unit. “When this product has been provided, we can take advantage of our expertise to deliver best-in-class solutions for customers.”
Pelco will initially supply Cisco with a complete line of HD imaging technologies that will be used to extend Cisco’s existing camera line and network-centric video surveillance systems. Cameras co-branded by Cisco and Pelco will feature the functionality of Sarix technology, including full-frame-rate video (30 fps), H.264 compression, advanced low-light performance, embedded analytics, auto focus, and easy installation. As joint development proceeds, IP networking features will be embedded into the co-branded cameras.
“We’re excited to work closely with Cisco to combine their deep understanding of IP networks with Pelco’s industry-leading Sarix technology to drive innovative HD IP camera development for the global security market,” says Dean Meyer, Pelco’s president and chief executive. “Our shared commitment to our customers and proven success in working together will allow us to deliver new features and capabilities that meet the needs of today’s safety and security professionals.”
