The WS5080 Endura Workstation from Pelco is a high-end personal computer running Windows 7 Ultimate that is optimized for the WS5200 advanced system management software (included). The workstation can decode and display up to 16 video streams simultaneously and can process up to 30/25 (NTSC/PAL) images at 4CIF resolution per second, per stream.
The WS5200 supports MPEG-4 as well as all common profiles of the latest H.264 codec. Provided the host PC has enough processing power, users can simultaneously decode sixteen 4CIF, MPEG-4 video streams in real time, or twelve H.264 Baseline profile streams in real time, or two 1080p streams in real time. Using the WS5200's tear-off tabs, user can view more cameras simultaneously and leverage multiple monitors to display more content.
The WS5200 interface automatically detects the monitor's native resolution and aspect ratio and configures the display to accommodate what the monitor can support. Based on the monitor's native aspect ratio, the WS5200 supports screen configurations in single-image, 2 x 2, 3 x 3, 4 x 4, 1 + 5, 1 + 12, and 2 + 8 for 4:3 aspect ratio displays and adds 3 x 2 and 4 x 3 for 16:9 aspect ratio displays.
The zone of interest feature covers a large field of view while allowing a user to independently select certain areas of the scene to get a closer view. The WS5000's zone of interest capability consumes no additional processing power or network bandwidth as a user creates up to six independently controlled zones of interest from a single camera.
Recorded footage can be instantly accessed for any camera without impacting the ability to maintain live surveillance over other cameras on the same monitor. Flexible synchronous playback allows operators to synchronize the playback of 16 cameras for investigations that require multiple vantage points of the same event. Additionally, the WS5200 allows users to review recorded footage from any camera while simultaneously viewing the live stream from that camera on the same monitor. Camera controls, PTZ operation, video playback controls, snapshot capture, and export tools all conveniently appear over the video when the cursor is placed on the desired camera's view.
