Examining OnSSI's OpenSight Federated Management

By John Honovich, Published Oct 18, 2010, 08:00pm EDT

OnSSI has announced a new feature for its Ocularis product line called OpenSight. OpenSight enables federated management/access to multiple independent Ocularis systems. It has a similar design goal to Genetec's Federation (see our Genetec test result details) and Milestone's recently announced Federated Architecture.

OnSSI OpenSight supports two of their VMS versions - NetDVMS and NetEVS so long as the Ocularis Base is running 'on top' of either VMS. Ocularis does not support any 3rd party VMS systems (this remains in development).

OnSSI charges a license fee per 'viewing camera' of $49 MSRP. If an organization wanted to share 10 of its 100 cameras, the charge would be $490 (MSRP), etc.

OpenSight is part of Ocularis 1.1, scheduled for a Nov 12, 2010 release date.
