API allows Pelco, Hirsch video integration

Clovis, CA, (December 17, 2008) – Pelco is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Hirsch Electronics, an award-winning manufacturer of high security access control and security management systems.

The partnering of these two industry leaders has resulted in the seamless integration of the Pelco DX8100 Series digital video recorder with Hirsch Electronics' Velocity Security Management System, through the use of the Pelco X-Portal application-programming interface. It enables the automated response to an alarm through the use of Velocity's Triggers/Actions Manager, which directs the DVR to initiate recording in response to an alarm at the predefined alarm recording frame rate, all without operator intervention.

The Pelco DX8100 series digital video recorder provides customers a new and innovative hardware platform that is powered by unparalleled and unique high-performance software and is expandable to meet future security requirements. The integration with Hirsch Electronics' Velocity Security Management System gives users the convenience of single seat control for both systems and provides management of alarm and video within the same graphical user interface.

"Hirsch's Velocity Security Management System integration to the Pelco DX8100 series DVRs will benefit customers looking for a powerful, yet easy to use video integration", says John Coker, Director of North American Sales for Hirsch Electronics Corp. "Hirsch's video integration with Pelco comes standard with Velocity and provides users the ability to tag alarm video, easily recall alarm video clips, provide live viewing of multiple DVRs and cameras from Velocity Client PCs, and many more capabilities."

"We are very pleased to see this highly demanded integration between Pelco and Hirsch Electronics, a premier provider of access control systems," says Terry Carver, API Business Development Manager with Pelco. "Both companies are viewed as leaders in their respective industries and now will be able to provide a powerful integrated system solution to the marketplace."
