Scallop Imaging D7-180 Cameras Integrated with OnSSI Video Management Platform

Integration Enables More Security with High-Resolution,
180 Degree Field of View Video on Leading Video Management System

Boston, MA and Pearl River, NY, June 30, 2011 -- Scallop Imaging, the market innovator in high resolution, panoramic video cameras, and On-Net Security Surveillance Systems, Inc. (OnSSI), the market leader in open-architecture, intelligent IP-based video surveillance software, today announced the integration of Scallop Imaging’s D7-180 camera with OnSSI’s Ocularis video management system (VMS). The Scallop Imaging D7-180 camera features seven megapixel resolution and a 180 degree field of view, along with PoE and H.264 compression. OnSSI’s non-proprietary software platform now enables users to leverage the capabilities of the D7-180 camera as part of a networked video system to record and manage digital video.

Scallop Imaging’s D7-180 seven megapixel digital camera distributes the imaging task across multiple, small image sensors, processing over 100 megapixels per second to calibrate, synchronize and merge video in real time. The result is two simultaneous video streams: a 720p HD stream composed of a true 180 degree, non-fisheye, situational awareness view at 15 frames per second, and up to four instantly repositionable zoom windows at full pixel resolution at 15 fps; and a full resolution (5120x1280 pixels) video stream at one fps.

OnSSI simplifies the overall security process with intuitive software that manages events, not simply records them, and provides real alerts. In an everyday sense, this means that operators do not have to focus on monitors where no activity of note is taking place, because they are alerted any time there are significant changes. A focus on relevant events translates into an ability to handle many more cameras, and at the same time means less need for hands on operators.

"This integration with Ocularis strengthens our position in the market and allows us to provide unsurpassed image quality and situational awareness to the other breakthrough technologies already supported by OnSSI's powerful Ocularis platform," said Peter Jones, President of Scallop Imaging. "We are looking forward to continuing to work with OnSSI to enable customers to utilize the power of our panoramic, distributed imaging video platform."

"Integrating the features of Scallop Imaging’s distributed imaging cameras into the Ocularis platform is a win-win for customers that provides them with great image quality, instant access to video, and real alerts. The result is a highly advanced and intelligent surveillance solution," said Gadi Piran, President and CTO at OnSSI.

About OnSSI
OnSSI is creating a new era in video surveillance in which intuitive software is an active partner in the security process and makes up for the limits of human capacity. This is driven by the modern world’s need for proactive, results oriented security solutions that can help to prevent incidents, instead of merely recording them. Intuitive, automated features of the software result in real alerts, better security and less need for operators watching screens, which reduces operating costs. Built around user needs, the OnSSI system offers elegant simplicity and is easy to use. In addition, a full, instant view of security processes and relevant events increases productivity across enterprises. OnSSI points the way to the future, with software designed to meet increasingly complex global security demands that go beyond traditional, hands on surveillance models. 

About Scallop Imaging, Inc.
Scallop Imaging is a leading innovator in developing video imaging systems based on the principles of distributed imaging. Distributed Imaging is a patented technology developed by Scallop where the outputs of multiple, small, image sensors are combined to form videos with any arbitrary field of view and resolution in real-time within the camera. This allows incredible resolution in a small form factor, at reasonable cost and with low bandwidth requirements. Scallop Imaging’s award-winning D7-180 and A7-180 cameras provide a seamless180 field of view, with seven megapixels of resolution. Scallop Imaging is a Division of Tenebraex Corporation, which was founded in 1992 and is located in Boston. Tenebraex develops and manufactures innovative optical products that solve real world problems. For more information, visit www.scallopimaging.com.
