Second-generation solution further reduces cost and complexity of analog to IP transition
mobiDEOS has upgraded its all-in-one UCNE surveillance solution to feature an ONVIF-compatible video encoding platform, ensuring greater interoperability across connected products conforming to the open standards protocol. UCNE, an acronym for Universal Cloud and Network Enabler, first debuted in July 2014 as a cost-efficient solution to transition analog security systems to IP and cloud infrastructures. ONVIF is an open industry forum promoting and developing global standards for interfaces of IP-based physical security products.
The second generation mobiDEOS UCNE release accelerates the transition to IP and cloud-based architectures by supporting low-cost integration of analog DVRs from any vendor; and seamless integration across the security ecosystem, including cameras, VMS systems, access control systems, video analytics and other key components of traditional CCTV. Setup and configuration is extremely simple, supporting automatic retrofits to existing systems while intuitively identifying and connecting components as surveillance networks grow.
Basing the latest UCNE generation on ONVIF standards further speeds the process, removing incompatibility hurdles for systems integrators. Since UCNE’s platform is fully automated, end users benefit from a simpler, easy-to-manage system architecture, centralized content, reduced maintenance and lower staffing costs. For example, recorded clips tied to motion alerts can be automatically replicated anywhere in the network or on the cloud, providing automatic redundancy.
Integrators and end users—from large enterprises to small businesses—both share a common cost reduction benefit upon migration, as UCNE slashes the costs of IP and cloud transitions by up to 75 percent.
“UCNE’s business model transitions 1,000 cameras to the network, while competitive systems will only transition 250 cameras at the same price,” said Sri L. Palasamudram, chief executive officer (CEO), mobiDEOS. “This removes a great deal of concern for businesses constrained by budgets when planning transitions. UCNE’s value proposition speeds the overall transitional process by enabling affordable investments, allowing businesses to enjoy the rewards of implementing IP and cloud-based surveillance across the network infrastructure quickly and seamlessly.”
Facilities can also connect analog cameras with built-in network and IP capabilities to the UCNE platform. By leveraging existing analog camera infrastructure in all or parts of a facility, end customers can additionally eradicate equipment and labor costs associated with IP camera upgrades.
mobiDEOS will announce a series of technology partnerships in the coming months to demonstrate the extent of UCNE’s open integration, including leading video management software (VMS) platforms, central station software, video analytics and video wall platforms. While UCNE support transitions at a lower total cost of ownership, its rock-solid technical design reliably supports live and recorded video playback, redundant cloud-based storage, and real-time alerting tied to video loss and motion detection among other critical applications.
“UCNE offers an unrivaled value proposition for both integrator and end customer. It makes it easier for the integrator to build and customize complete systems while saving money for the end customer,” said Palasamudram, adding that the platform is highly scalable to ensure seamless integration of new components, systems and applications as surveillance requirements evolve.
