The incorporation of Ocularis’ functionality within the C•CURE 9000 interface allows full interaction with Ocularis video, turning the physical security interface into a full-featured video client.

Verma makes the distinction between safe, smart and cognitive cities: “A safe city aims to ensure the safety and security of its residents, whilst smart initiatives go further, improving the operations of city. Cognitive cities take things to the next level by keeping citizens engaged and contributing to the gathering of the relevant data. The insights from which can be used not only to improve security, safety and city operations, but also the lives of residents.” He adds: “Cognitive cities are much better positioned to thrive in the face of significant challenges such as clean water scarcity, climate change, and providing functional and efficient mass transportation at mega-city scales. It is an ambitious goal that not only holds the promise of being more resilient, but at the same time promotes civic participation, sense of community and the health and wellbeing of citizens.”
The 5th National Summit on 100 Smart Cities India 2019 will bring together global thought leaders to focus on aspects of a smart city including urban development, surveillance, power, energy, transport, technology, smart building, smart grid, smart health, network and communication technology.

Pearl River, NY (October 24, 2019)Qognify – the trusted advisor and technology solution provider for physical security and enterprise incident management – launches version 5.8 of Ocularis, the award-winning video management system (VMS) for enterprise and corporate projects with an emphasis on tactical real-time operations and live visualization.
In version 5.8, Ocularis has put the user front and center. One of the numerous improvements is the inclusion of an Ocularis Client MSI Installer, which enables customers to easily push out Ocularis Client updates using the System Center Configuration Manager (SSCM) from Microsoft, thus greatly reducing time required for software deployments, updates and hot fixes across the enterprise.
Ocularis 5.8 allows customers to create a comprehensive security environment made up of multiple security-relevant systems and applications communicating with each other. Using a flexible, driver-based approach, the new Event Interface (SEI) breaks new ground to connect third-party security products to Ocularis, addressing the needs of customers who place a premium on their physical security strategy. All events from third-party applications such as access control and intruder alarm systems can now be received and visualized within Ocularis. This provides security personnel with real-time, integrated event information and response capabilities, thus significantly reducing the reaction time during critical incidents.
Ari Robinson, Product Owner for Ocularis at Qognify, explains further benefits of the interface: “Technology and solution partners are now able to easily develop plugins to connect Ocularis with their product portfolios, as the SEI is a well-documented and open interface. Especially for corporate and enterprise customers this facilitates a hassle-free implementation of integrated security systems. Setting up an integrated security solution with the SEI immediately provides an added value and also underlines the solution-based approach of Qognify.”
Another essential move into this direction is the introduction of the open Analytics Interface (SAI), that allows for the integration of any edge or server-based video analytics or license plate recognition solution on the market, also using a plugin-based approach. Chen Porat, VP R&D at Qognify, explains the strategic importance of these initiatives: “The introduction of the two new interfaces in Ocularis 5.8 is one of the first outcomes of the cross-product initiatives within Qognify, rolling out standard interfaces across the product portfolio and thus delivering tangible added value to as many Qognify customers as possible.”
Ocularis 5.8 now supports more than 5,000 different devices from over 80 different hardware manufacturers. New camera functions including better support for cameras with integrated edge storage functionality, have also been introduced into the software, giving customers even more choice when selecting the right hardware for their individual video security application.
 
Availability
Ocularis 5.8 is now available from Qognify. Current customers with a valid Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) can download and install the update.
