Ocularis is OnSSI’s innovative and cost effective open platform Video Management Software (VMS) designed to enhance your security while simplifying your daily workload. From convenience stores to citywide deployments and everything in between, Ocularis can scale up to accommodate an infinite number of cameras to match your growing system needs. Ocularis lets you record video from IP network cameras–as well as analog cameras cameras using encoders–and can become your Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) platform, putting you in control of advanced tools and enhanced integrations like smart motion detection, access control, biometrics, and behavior analytics.
The Ocularis platform is offered in three models—Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate—to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes and types. Ocularis Enterprise provides centralized management of users, cameras and servers and features recording server failover, redundant management servers. Ocularis Enterprise’s capabilities can be extended with the optional Ocularis VideoWall which allows for collaborative control of video walls at multiple command and control centers.
FULL-FLEDGED VMS WITH PHYSICAL SECURITY INFORMATION MANAGEMENT (PSIM) FUNCTIONALITY Ocularis manages video and event data received from cameras connected to multiple recording servers, as well as from physical security, environmental detection, transaction and other enterprise systems.
CENTRALIZED MANAGEMENT OF USERS, CAMERAS AND SERVERS Ocularis Enterprise provides easy control and management of the entire system; user access and privileges, camera and server configurations, maps and alerts. Built-in support for Microsoft Active Directory™ authentication provides for simple and secure Single Sign-On (SSO) access to the system.
FAILOVER AND REDUNDANCY INLCUDED FOR MAXIMUM UPTIME Ocularis Enterprise includes at no extra cost both recording server failover and redundant management server capabilities to keep your critical video system operational 24/7.
NO PROPRIETARY HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS Ocularis runs on non-proprietary, off-the-shelf PC hardware and is also supported in virtual environments such as Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware. Ocularis supports the leading manufacturers’ cameras and devices—including almost all embedded analytics and features—as well as the ONVIF and ONVIF Profile S standards allowing you to use the right camera technology for your application.
COMPOSITE EVENTS (‘EVENT FUSION’) Composite Events are created by linking two events or alerts, configured by sequence order, time interval and logical conditioning (e.g. ‘If Door “A” opens, but no motion detection on Camera “N”, within 15 seconds’). Composite Events can be fused with other events to create complex detection scenarios, and assigned priority for push video and handling by Ocularis Client operators.
OPEN-ARCHITECTURE NON-PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY Ocularis runs on non-proprietary, off-the-shelf PC hardware and supports leading manufacturers’ cameras and devices. Support is built-in for all industry-standard compression formats (MPEG-4, MJPEG, H.264, H.265 and MxPEG) and the ONVIF and ONVIF Profile S standards. Ocularis Base and Ocularis Recorders are also fully supported in virtual environments such as VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V.
END-TO-END DATA SECURITY Ocularis uses modern TLS 1.2 encryption protocols to secure camera-to-server communications, serverto-server communications and Client-to-server communications. Recorded video is protected by utilizing a randomized data structure with no camera identification information.
AUTOMATIC RECORDER PATCH UPDATES Recorder patch updates are automatically downloaded and applied in Ocularis 5, keeping the system up-to-date and secure. Administrators may also choose to download and install patches manually. This is the only effective way to make sure all of your servers are updated 100% of the time.
DYNAMIC DATA MANAGEMENT Ocularis Professional features efficient and dynamic data management with automatic load balancing across multiple storage volumes with no archiving requirements.
VIDEO BACKUP Automatically create a copy of your video data in another location – either on-site or off-site – to protect your important recordings. Video Backup can also be used with mobile NVRs in transportation applications to offload video from a bus, train, delivery van or patrol car to a central location for review.
