Qognify announced an addition to its portfolio of devices supported in its video management software Qognify VMS. The integration includes Pelco’s Sarix Value, Sarix Pro 4 and Esprit Enhanced Series.

The latest IP camera series from Pelco can be used with Qognify’s video solution for corporate and enterprise projects. This increases the overall number of camera models and third-party devices supported in Qognify VMS to more than 6,500. Qognify's Smart Driver also contains a driver for the ONVIF profile S/G/T. The architecture enables the use of new camera models out of the box without the need to download and install additional driver packages.

“As a manufacturer-independent software vendor, we want to give our customers and partners the freedom to define the ideal camera portfolio to meet the specific requirements of their video security projects,” said Philipp Kraft, product manager cameras and devices at Qognify. “Pelco cameras are trusted by customers around the world, and we’re excited to add these to the range of devices supported in Qognify VMS. Pelco relies on the ONVIF standard for third-party integrations. In addition to basic video functionalities such as the transmission of video streams in H.264 and H.265, a lot of advanced features such as I/Os, camera-based motion detection, and video analytics, or edge-based recording are also supported in Qognify VMS, enabling customers to leverage the full potential of their hardware investments.”

“Through this joint initiative, Qognify VMS customers now have the flexibility to plan and implement their projects with our best-in-class Pelco cameras with embedded smart analytics,” said Hamish Dobson, corporate vice president, Enterprise Physical Security, Motorola Solutions. “The Sarix and Esprit cameras provide a wide-range of options to meet users needs including enhanced imaging quality and rugged designs built for the harshest environments.”
