Pelco Introduces DX8000 Application Program Interface

Pelco announced the availability of the DX8000 Application Program Interface (API). DX8000 and its API offer a powerful set of developmental tools, which greatly expand the capabilities of control systems. The API allows the creation of a direct link to Pelco's DX8000 digital video recording system -- eliminating the need to toggle between systems.

For qualified developers, the DX8000 API provides a clear path and all the information tools necessary for other manufacturers of hardware and software products -- such as access control companies -- to create their own applications for integrating the power of DX8000 directly into their systems. It is Pelco's goal to help these third party application development efforts, which will allow for fast, easy and complete integration of the DX8000 into the widest range of enterprise video security solutions possible.

Security professionals can log into Pelco's web site at to view the functionality of this API. Additional information can be found by calling Pelco's product support/technical solutions group at 800-289-9100 or 559-292-1981.
