Pelco releases new products and drivers.

Headquartered in Clovis, California, Pelco is not only one of the largest employers in Central California, but is also the world’s largest video security equipment manufacturer.
This month, Pelco releases new products and drivers for their video security systems.

New Pelco Display Brings Bigger, More Energy Efficient Future

dlp.jpgThe new Pelco 700 Series DLP (tm) Display system is designed for the needs of the video security industry. A 50-inch rear projecting display utilizing DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology – a trademark of Texas Instruments – the 700 Series provides superior image quality, with zero burn-in over its entire 11-year, 100,000-hour life cycle.

"The 700 Series delivers a viewing experience unlike anything you have seen before," says Linda Myers, Product Sales Manager. "And most impressively, it does so with significant savings."

At only 18 inches deep, a single 50-inch display delivers the viewing area equivalent to that of twenty-six, 9-inch CRT monitors, yet consumes only 80 percent of the power and 20 percent of the physical space. It even uses 30 percent less power than plasma displays.

"With just a single display, the 700 Series offers a scalable solution that is more space efficient, costs less per viewing square inch, and uses less power than the multitude of traditional monitors it replaces," Myers says. "Or you can use it as an alternative to CRTs."

According to Pelco developers, when set-up with Multiviewers, each 700 Series display can be configured with up to 120 inputs, each scalable and able to be moved across any single display. In addition, the 700 Series can be stacked or nested together to form an impressive, state-of-the-art video wall. Connect a video controller, and you are free to stretch and scale an almost limitless number of video inputs across all displays. Combining efficient form with unmatched function, the 700 Series delivers a fluid viewing experience customizable to your needs.

PelcoFiber – Now with More Video Channels

The FT85041/FR85041 carries four channels of digitally encoded video with bidirectional data and the FT85081/FR85081 carries eight channels. According to Victor Biberston, Product Sales Manager, "These fiber optic transmitters and receivers exceed all requirements for the RS-250C medium haul transmission specifications and are compatible with NTSC, PAL, and SECAM video standards."

Both the FT805041/FT85041 and the FT85081/FR85081 offer 8-bit digitally encoded video for high-quality multi-channel video transmission over a single fiber. "With coaxial systems, video/data begin to degrade when transmitted beyond 300 meters. But PelcoFiber products support distances up to 2 km in multi mode and 30 km in single-mode," Biberston says. The eight-channel FT85081/FR85081 transmitter and receiver have multi-mode fiber support for up to 1 km and single mode for 30km.

Modular in design, the transmitter and receiver units can be wall or rack mounted, which means installation is easy and efficient. The modules can be mounted using either Pelco RK5000PS-3U or Pelco RK5000-3U rack mounts, which provide 12 available slots for fiber optic modules. The EPS5000-120 external power supply can also provide redundant power to a fully populated RK5000PS-3U or RK5000-3U chassis.

The FT85041/FR85041 and the FT85081/FR85081 both utilize LED indicators for immediate visual monitoring of signal status, data activity and operating power. "Best of all, PelcoFiber transmitter/receiver units are compatible with and can be easily and quickly set to work with the industry’s most popular multi-protocol transmission formats," Biberston says.

Pelco VMX300 – New Device Drivers

Consistent with the company’s practice to continually add value to its products, Pelco management is pleased to announce the availability of new device drivers for the VMX300/VMX300-E Video Management Systems. According to Victor Biberston, Product Sales Manager, "The new device drivers bring added control to matrix switchers, DVRs and NVRs, as well as enable the connection to additional DVRs and ancillary equipment."

VMX300 receives and displays video from both analog and digital (IP) based video systems. "Using a map-based drag and drop GUI, VMX300 systems provide the integration necessary for today’s real-world applications," Biberston says. The VMX300 product line is designed to maximize existing analog investments while capturing new opportunities with IP-based video.

The new device drivers for the VMX300 and VMX300-E permit connection to the Pelco DX8000 DVR and CM9760-Alm and CM9760-REL alarm interface and relay unit. VMX300 systems provide monitoring and control of up to 2,000 cameras and can be configured to display a combination of IP-based video and analog video through two VGA monitors.

The VMX300 systems come pre-loaded with both server and client software, Pelco device drivers, and licenses for up to 10 cameras. Additional licenses can be purchased separately to accommodate higher camera counts. Facility maps are provided and installed by the system administrator and are used to identify the location of cameras, domes, PTZ devices, and alarm locations. These devices can be controlled directly from the intuitive user interface. The VMX300 systems eliminate the need to remember complex camera and keyboard codes, enabling operators to get up-to-speed faster.
