OnSSI announced version 4.0 of their Ocularis Video-Centric PSIM VMS. New features include:

Sorry, I didn't understand this joke, how does it get its funniness?

Because OnSSI, from time to time, tries to market itself as more than a VMS. Here's their classic video ad.

Because OEMing major sub-components of its VMS architecture frees up resourses which then can be applied to a broader solution set. Check.

So you are implying that OnSSI has a broader solution set than its competitors like Genetec and Milestone? Because that is pretty clearly factually untue.

No, that was just me adding a log to the ONSSI flame by using the old 'We're just OEMing the recording engine' punch line as ostensibly the reason they would be able to broaden their offering... (As in since we don't have to write any core software we can write command and control stuff).

Schneider´s VsaaS $167 month for 8 cameras? Sounds interesting?!

It's certainly more attractive than hosted video offerings which cost that much just for hosting fees.

This is managed, with video stored on site, so that helps keep the cost down.

Over 3 years, that's $6,000 for an 8 camera system (all in), which is pretty competive overall but certainly not cheap.

Ethan, is Multisight available for non Schneider Electric integrators? And presumably, even if it is, integrators would be competing with SE's integration arm?

The updated Arecont dual imager is interesting. I think IPVM tested the older model a long time ago, maybe a newer test to see how well it performs again other low light competitors to see if the dual imager design really makes a difference is in order. Could this be a nod to Mobotix, for all they are perceived to do wrong in some respects, that in this respect they do something pretty right...?

We will see when that camera is actually released. This is Arecont :)

I am not highly motivated because, since the hey day of dual imager cameras, integrated IR is everywhere and lots of super low light cameras have emerged. I am just not sure what role the dual imager plays with those two strong substitutes. Thoughts?

Btw, I am quite interested in testing the camera with the 1 inch sensor, again whenever that is eventually released.

"Thoughts?"

No strong opinions on it. Just a thought. There's has to be some reason Arecont felt the need to continue offering a dual imager. Maybe it's something Europe is still interested in and that was their motivating market source?

John/Team, was there any HDSM demo or any discussions with any techs from Avigilon worth relating?
