Ocularis is OnSSI’s flagship IP-video surveillance and security platform which includes a full-fledged VMS, combined
with central management of end-user rights and video recording and distribution.
The Ocularis Platform is offered in four feature sets – PS, IS, CS and ES – to meet the needs of organizations of all
sizes and types.
The Ocularis PS Feature Set was designed for organizations with limited active live monitoring and alerting
operating in a single or at multiple locations.
Major System Components
Ocularis PS is a unified, modular software platform that consists of a number of components:
Ocularis Base: Provides system-wide management for shared assets, user rights management, and video
Ocularis Recorder Component (RC): provides video recording, storage management, video delivery to users
and camera management.
Ocularis Client: Access to video, management of alerts and shared event handling is done through the unified
Video Client software.
