Pelco Releases "Free" Video Analytics

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 04, 2011

Starting with Sarix Release 1.6, Pelco is providing 'free' video analytics for its Extended Platform (EP) models. This is a very interesting move as Pelco has a much publicized relationship / resale of Object Video's analytics. In this note, we examine the features, competitive pricing and positioning of this move.

As a starting point, it is important to recognize that Pelco offers both 'regular' and Extended Platform cameras. Relative to the regular or base offerings, the 'EP' models provide additional processing power for edge-based video analytics and increased frame-rates. As of firmware 1.6 Pelco's full suite of analytics have been consolidated into one suite and is offered 'free' in the price of base 'EP' models. (Object Video analytics will still maintain its multi-suite pricing structure).
