ONSSI's New Ocularis 3.5 Simplifies Large-scale System Management

Product Profile

The new version of Ocularis, OnSSI’s flagship surveillance and security platform, focuses on system-wide administration and optimized hardware utilization.

The new version of Ocularis introduces automatic licensing, a huge time-saver for system administrators and overall cost-saver. Now, the system administrator is free to connect and replace cameras – which are immediately fully operational – whenever convenient. System-wide administration is further enhanced with a brand-new streamlined method of assigning user privileges for viewing and controlling cameras. 

Ocularis 3.5 also introduces 64- and 32-bit support for its ES feature set, in addition to dual streaming in all feature sets, for much improved hardware utilization. 

“Ocularis is all about creating the most user-friendly environment for operators. Now more than ever, we’ve expanded the Ocularis experience to the system administrator,” said Gadi Piran, President and Chief Technology Officer, OnSSI. “Ocularis 3.5 streamlines the job of the system administrator in every possible way, bringing down costs while adding new functionality.” 

Enhancements to Ocularis 3.5 include: 

Automatic, online batch camera licensing – Camera licensing is now fully automated and performed instantly over OnSSI’s new online licensing system, with a 30-day grace period for each camera before it needs to be licensed. 

Granular management of user privileges to more camera features and client functions – User privileges, per user group or individual user, can be batch-assigned to entire camera groups, with more detailed rights to view pane controls and the ability to create, delete or view a bookmark. 

Camera aliasing – Cameras can be assigned aliases reflecting their function and location, such as “North Parking Lot PTZ Camera,” while retaining the naming convention used by the system administrator. 

Universal privacy masking – Even on cameras that do not support privacy masking natively.

New recorder components – For all four feature sets of Ocularis.

Video Wall Management – Support for the Ocularis VideoWall add-on, which turns any PC running Ocularis Client into a full-fledged remote video-wall host, has been expanded to include the Ocularis IS feature set, in addition to CS and ES. 

Ocularis-X – Utilizing High-Definition Interactive Streaming (HDIS) technology, Ocularis-X, now included in Ocularis 3.5, allows high-quality, full frame rate delivery of multiple cameras to mobile or web clients, with complete interaction with camera controls. (Available September 2012)

Dual-streaming – Camera feeds can now be recorded and viewed at two different quality levels, frame rates or compression types – e.g. H.264 for live monitoring and MJPEG for recording.

Encrypted HTTPS streaming – To enable secure connection to cameras both inside and outside the organizational network.

MxPEG – Ocularis now supports Mobitix’s MxPEG compression format.

Axis One-Click – Ocularis ES supports Axis’ One-Click camera connection feature. 

Some new features are unique to the Ocularis ES feature set, including availability in 64-bit as well as a 32-bit version, support for on-edge storage for cameras, and sun-clock scheduling. 

Ocularis 3.5 is available in four feature sets – Ocularis PS, IS, CS and ES – each scalable to virtually any number of cameras at multiple sites. Each Ocularis feature set includes a complete video management system (VMS) for streaming, recording and managing an unlimited number of cameras. 

Ocularis provides the broadest camera and device support in the industry, and is compatible with third-party technologies such as video analytics, access control, environmental detection and more.
