Panasonic System Solutions Co. has added Pelco, a maker of video and security systems, to its list of allied in the Panasonic Solution Developer Network (PSDN) to expand the interoperability of member companies’ video surveillance solutions.
As a new PSDN member, Pelco plans to support Panasonic’s i-Pro network camera lineup under its enterprise-class IP-based video security system and management platforms.
Pelco currently supports Panasonic i-Pro network cameras with its Digital Sentry Digital Video Management System (DVMS). Expanded interoperability efforts will focus on Pelco’s Endura platform, supporting the i-Pro cameras.
“Delivering open and integrated systems is a cornerstone of Pelco’s product development focus,” said Dave deLisser, director of integration at Pelco.
Pelco was awarded a Government VideoSalute in December at GV Expo for its IX series of network surveillance cameras.
As part of its “Open Infrastructure” initiative, the PSDN program provides members, including Pelco, with development tools, technical information and assistance to integrate with Panasonic products. In September 2008, Panasonic announced the global expansion of its PSDN program and it now has about 80 members.
