ObjectVideo Signs Pelco to OEM Partnership Agreement

Pelco to Embed Analytics Software Within the New Sarix™ Technology Based Cameras

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - September 8, 2008) - ObjectVideo®, the leader in intelligent video, today announced that it has entered into an OEM agreement with Pelco, a leader in the manufacture of video and security equipment. As an OEM partner, Pelco will embed the ObjectVideo OnBoard® suite of analytics and software tools into selected future Pelco products, beginning with the new Pelco Sarix™ technology based cameras scheduled for release in early 2009.

As part of Pelco's commitment to open-architecture solutions, Sarix technology will connect to third party systems that have adopted the Pelco camera API. This enables third party systems that are also OV Ready to set rules, receive alerts and configure communications with ObjectVideo analytics in Sarix technology based cameras. Now any of the more than 12 OV Ready application partners -- including Genetec, Instek Digital and Orsus -- can develop seamless plug-in of ObjectVideo analytics hosted on this next generation Pelco Sarix platform for their customer solutions.

"We are both honored and excited about extending the level of our multi-year partnership with Pelco," said Brian Baker, ObjectVideo managing director. "This agreement will broaden and simplify access and adoption of video analytics throughout the industry, and will enable OV Ready technology partners, integrators and end-users to benefit from the combined value of fully integrated ObjectVideo and Pelco technologies. Our partnership with Pelco now enables ObjectVideo's industry-leading analytics to be purchased, configured and managed as part of a Pelco experience."

An embedded video content analysis solution, ObjectVideo OnBoard delivers full ObjectVideo functionality for the detection, classification, and tracking of objects, and the outputting of events for a growing number of security, safety and business intelligence applications. With the real-time alerting and counting generated on edge devices such as Sarix based cameras, ObjectVideo delivers its leading analytics solution as a tightly integrated component within the Pelco IP video solution offering, and without the need for additional server hardware for processing.

Pelco and ObjectVideo have previously collaborated to interface ObjectVideo OnBoard and ObjectVideo's server-based product with the Pelco Endura® network-based video system, the DX8000 and DX8100 digital video recorders (DVRs).
