The company states the latest IP camera series from Pelco, a global manufacturer that designs, develops, and manufactures video security cameras, smart analytics and aligned services, can be used with Qognify’s advanced video solution for corporate and enterprise projects. This compatibility Qonify continues, increases the overall number of camera models and third-party devices supported in Qognify VMS to more than 6,500.
“As a manufacturer-independent software vendor, we want to give our customers and partners the freedom to define the ideal camera portfolio to meet the specific requirements of their video security projects. Pelco cameras are trusted by customers around the world and we’re excited to add these to the range of devices supported in Qognify VMS,” says Philipp Kraft, product manager cameras & devices at Qognify.
“Since Pelco relies on the ONVIF standard for third-party integrations. In addition to basic video functionalities such as the transmission of video streams in H.264 and H.265, a lot of advanced features such as I/Os, camera-based motion detection and video analytics, or edge-based recording are also supported in Qognify VMS, enabling customers to leverage the full potential of their hardware investments.”
According to Qognify, this compatibility is made possible by its Smart Driver approach, which also contains a driver for ONVIF profile S/G/T. The unique architecture enables the use of new camera models out of the box without the need to download and install additional driver packages. As a result Qognify boasts, customers gain the flexibility of taking advantage of the latest camera models and capabilities right out of the box, without spending time and money waiting for the VMS manufacturer to provide updated camera drivers.
