Ocularis CS 3.7 Specifications
Version 3.7, September 2013
For full list of features, see the Ocularis Architecture & Engineering (A&E) document, available by request.
Ocularis is an IP-video surveillance and security platform which includes a full-fledged VMS, combined with
comprehensive PSIM functionality. It provides:
Integration and coordination of integrated physical security, content analytic and other detection systems;
Full VMS functionality with centralized management of cameras, connected devices, recording servers and
redundant servers, at multiple sites.
Centralized event, end-user rights and video recording and distribution management.
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 CS Feature Set was designed for large distributed organizations with extended command and control
needs. Ocularis CS supports the VideoWall and OpenSight add-ons, allowing the control of video walls at multiple
command and control centers, and incorporating camera streams from other Ocularis installations.
Major System Components
Ocularis is a unified, modular software platform that consists of a number of components:
Ocularis Base: Provides system-wide management, user access, shared event management, alarm and event
correlation, video access, and distribution rights.
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, for desktop and control room video wall environments.
Add-Ons and Integrated Applications including:
Video Wall management
Ocularis OpenSight
Integrated physical security solutions (access control, radiation detection, contact closure, among

System Highlights
Full-Fledged VMS with Physical Security
Information Management (PSIM) Functionality
Ocularis CS manages video and event data
received from cameras connected to multiple
recording servers, as well as from physical security,
transaction and other enterprise systems.
Flexible storage allocation
Confidential to On-Net Surveillance Systems, Inc. www.onssi.com.
Multiple Investigation Tools
Ocularis Client’s investigation tools, include the
Kinetic Motion Timeline, multi-parameter motion
detection, the Time Slicer and the Motion Slicer, as
well as the optional Video Content Analytics add-on.
All recording servers and Ocularis Client users are
managed by the Ocularis Base, which coordinates
all event and alert handling, manages users’ rights
to specific cameras and functions system wide
(Active Directory supported), and distributes all
shared assets.
While monitoring live video feeds, users can
perform basic investigation on individual cameras –
playback, digital PTZ and optical PTZ (for PTZ
cameras) - without the need to switch to a dedicated
investigation mode.
System resources are optimized through percamera configuration for compression level/format,
image resolution, bandwidth, framerate, conditional
recording, retention time, archiving frequency,
archiving location and more.
Central Management for Alerting, Shared Event
Handling, Client Asset and User Authorization
Complete Video Wall management
Utilizing Ocularis Client’s map-based navigation, the
Ocularis VideoWall add-on allows sending cameras
and camera groups to any remote or local monitor,
eliminating the need for any video matrix hardware.
Per-Camera Configuration of Video Streaming,
Recording and Archiving Parameters
Storage, based on either size or retention period, is
allocated per camera or camera group, with
prioritization of important cameras. Video can be
stored on local or network drives, using a database
structure that eliminates the distinction between ‘live
recording’ and ‘archived’ video.
Open-Architecture, Non-Proprietary Technology
Ocularis runs on off-the-shelf PC hardware; and
supports all leading manufacturers’ cameras and
devices (over 900 models) as well as all industrystandard compression formats (MPEG4, MJPEG,
H.263 and H.264).
Highly Intuitive Unified Video Client
Ocularis Client offers a user-friendly operator
interface, for both desktop and control room videowall environments, with only minutes of training
required for full proficiency.
Designed for Integration
Ocularis CS allows the integration of a host of addon components via integration tools including Data
Link Integration events, API commands, Contact
Closure and more. An optional Software
Development Kit (SDK) enables integration of 3 party components.
Shared Event Handling
Recorded events are handled simultaneously by
multiple operators, bookmarked and exported as
evidence in multiple formats, all within minutes.
Ocularis OpenSight
An add-on to Ocularis that lets users
consolidate and share information from video
surveillance and other security systems that are
outside their own system.
Ocularis CS 3.7 Specifications
Detailed Features and Functionality
Ocularis Base
The Ocularis Base Application manages the flow of
event, user and system status data from the various
system components.
Event Management
All events within the Ocularis platform, as well as
messages received from external devices and
systems, are managed through the Ocularis Base
administrator. These include camera connected I/O
messages; motion detection events; camera status
events and others.

recording for specific cameras).
Multiple activity ranges for each day of the week,
as well as for overriding holidays, are configured
through a simple GUI.
Event Prioritization
Composite Events (‘Event Fusion’)
Composite Events are created by linking two
camera events or alerts, configured by sequence
order, time interval and logical conditioning (e.g. ‘If
Door A opens, but no motion detection on Camera
N, within 15 seconds’). Composite Events can be
fused with other events to create complex
detection scenarios, and assigned priority for push
video and handling by Ocularis Client operators.
Management of
Users are assigned to Active Directory-supported
authorization groups, granting users rights for
accessing cameras, operating specific camera and
video wall functions (including PTZ controls and

Camera Array Views for Video Client User
By logging in to the Ocularis Base, users gain
access to Views – arrays of different dimension
and pane size combination, containing camera
streams, hotspots, carousels, web pages and
images, and push-video panes. View panes can be
configured for image resolution, framerate,
carousel dwell time, etc.
Automatic Push Video Alerting (Blank Screen
Upon event, a push-video alert of the camera that
triggered the alert, or any other camera, can be
sent to users running the Ocularis Client
application. In addition, the alert can be configured
to trigger alarms or send notifications to users.
Schedule-Based Actions on Events
