Videotec joined PSIA in 2009 and during the last few months has actively worked to gain a thorough knowledge of the protocol. Now this common language has been successfully integrated within the company’s ALBERT unit for video analytics. A prototype will be shown at this year’s ISC WEST exhibition in Las Vegas, US.

All visitors at Videotec’s stand can see and try the system to remotely control the PTZ telemetry through the PSIA protocol. They will also appreciate the new way in which the ALBERT system helps operators to monitor a certain area. It is based on the smart cooperation between units, on an advanced outdoor-oriented event detection, and on the ease of configuration and use.

Standards for networked security devices will increase market opportunities for IP-enabled solutions as products can be easily integrated with others, regardless of brand. These standards will enable manufacturers to highlight a product’s features and benefits regardless of costs.

Ottavio Campana, Videotec R&D Albert Group, says: “If the systems speak a common language, new products’ development and integration will be smoother and at the same time end users will be able to access a broader range of compatible products which will guarantee their video-security system a longer life.”
