Panasonic System Solutions Company and Pelco aligned under the Panasonic Solution Developer Network (PSDN) in an effort to expand the interoperability of both companies' video surveillance solutions to best serve the needs of customers. 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. The joint effort reflects both companies' commitment to interoperability and meeting the market demand for integrated security solutions at the enterprise level.
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. Panasonic and Pelco will work together to quickly accomplish the interoperability to meet existing customer demand.
"Everything we do at Panasonic System Solutions Company is about empowering customers and serving their needs," said J.M. Allain, President, Panasonic System Solutions. "We are committed to an 'Open Infrastructure' and are pleased to work with Pelco and other industry suppliers to meet the demands of end users on a common platform – the IT network."
"Delivering open and integrated systems is a cornerstone of Pelco's product development focus," said Dave deLisser, Director of Integration at Pelco. "We are excited about expanding our interoperability with Panasonic i-Pro cameras to our enterprise class video management systems."
Panasonic System Solutions created the PSDN program several years ago to develop partnerships that complement and extend its lineup of security and surveillance products to better meet both integrator and end user requirements. 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, better enabling multinational integrators and end users with broader interoperability. Through PSDN, Panasonic is helping to provide resellers with expanded product solution offerings and end users with seamless security solutions.
