Fluidmesh and Pelco partner to deliver a flawless, wireless video-security system
Fluidmesh Networks and Pelco have successfully integrated Fluidmesh wireless platforms with many of Pelco’s top video products. Combining the reliability and real time Web interface of Fluidmesh with the highest quality Pelco video products has resulted in a flawless wireless video-security system.
Terry Carver, API Business Development Manager for Pelco points out that “Fluidmesh is a strong technology partner capable of providing a wide range of wireless network solutions to our mutual customers.”
The point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and wireless mesh solutions Fluidmesh offers are optimized for high resolutions video streaming. Its three primary product offerings are designed for security, video-surveillance and mission critical applications. Fluidmesh wireless units can be used in a flexible way and are fully compatible with all of the IP, analogical cameras and video-servers in the Pelco product line.
System integrators can now be confident they can offer a comprehensive, state-of-the-art wireless video-security solution. Fluidmesh technology is unique in that it supports multicast transmission, drastically reducing the bandwidth needed for every camera and facilitating a seamless integration with Pelco’s Endura, Sarix, and IP cameras.
“We’re so pleased to partner with Pelco,” adds Cosimo Malesci, co-founder and vice president, Fluidmesh. “Pelco is synonymous with unrelenting product innovation and top-notch customer service - philosphies and priorities we also share at Fluidmesh.” A recent video-surveillance installation for the Birmingham Police Department evidences how well the two technologies work together. The system is running on a Fluidmesh 2200 mesh network and the police station can monitor and control all the Pelco PTZ cameras in real time from the control room. The system runs on 5.1-5.8 and 4.9 Ghz and the PTZ cameras have very little latency due to the Fluidmesh proprietary transmission system.
“We tested the system of the Birmingham Police Department and were impressed by the quality of the video and the speed with which the Pelco PTZ cameras can be controlled,” says Steve Milsk, who worked with the integrator on the project. “It’s hard to believe that you’re running across a wireless network."
