Video security systems manufacturer, Pelco by Schneider Electric, has launched its Esprit Series integrated positioning system in full 1080p high-definition (HD) with the new Esprit HD Series. The Esprit HD Positioning System provides users with crystal-clear, live streaming of images through a standard web browser, a Pelco VMS, or integration to other video systems via an API or ONVIF S.
The latest enhancements provide integration into virtually any IP-based HD system through customizable settings and are designed to view details such as faces, license plates, casino playing cards, and more. The enhancements include:
- Image clarity: Esprit 1080p HD features up to 1920 x 1080 Resolution, 16:9 Aspect Ratio, and 1080p at 30 (ips) and 2.0 Megapixel (MPx), 30X Optical Zoom, and 12X Digital Zoom.
- User-Defined Customization: Through built-in analytic tools, the Esprit HD system can be programmed with multiple Pelco behaviors and scheduled to work within predetermined times or conditions specific to a business’ needs. For example, a camera can be configured with “Object Counting” to count the number of people that enter a lobby door throughout the day, then adjusted in the evening to detect “Camera Sabotage” to trigger an alarm if a camera is moved or obstructed. Additional customization is available through settings, such as “Window Blanking,” which is used to conceal user-defined privacy areas that cannot be viewed by an operator. The system comes standard with nine preloaded Pelco behaviors. Pelco analytic tools are compatible with Endura and other third-party systems that support alarms using the Pelco API.
- Protected Camera Optics and Electronics: The Esprit HD also features a receiver, pan/tilt capabilities, and is available with either an Integrated Optics Package (IOP) or a pressurized Integrated Optics Cartridge (IOC) in a single system. The IOP can provide complete environmental protection and the pressurized IOC can shield camera optics and electronics from moisture and airborne contaminants. Within two hours after powering-up, the entire unit can de-ice and become operational starting at temperatures as low as –25∞C (–13∞F).
- Compatibility: Esprit HD supports High-Profile H.264 compression for improved image and audio quality. The positioning system is Endura enabled to record, manage, configure, and view multiple live streams of video. When connected to an Endura HD network-based video security system, the positioning system has access to EnduraStor and EnduraView for optimized image quality and bandwidth efficiency. †
The new Esprit HD is also compatible with Digital Sentry NVs (DS NVs), a full-feature video management software, which is available as a free download at www.pelco.com. DS NVs includes four free Pelco IP licenses and allows for the management of video from up to 64 cameras.
