WinCC OA VIDEO - Integrated Video management

Description

WinCC OA VIDEO enables you to integrate complete video management functions natively into a SCADA project. This native integration allows the SCADA user to configure the video hardware and software in the same manner as the classical automation hardware.

The vendor neutral video standard ONVIF 2.0 (Open Network Video Interface Forum) is integrated in WinCC OA VIDEO, which allows the connection to different video hardware.

WinCC OA VIDEO is used to visualize video components and control cameras and PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) cameras either by means of a control panel or using a keyboard and mouse. Because of this, comprehensive monitoring and control of complex devices (e.g. traffic control devices) is possible from a single operator station. This ensures that problem situations can be identified at an early stage and operators can react to these appropriately.

The combination of SCADA and video surveillance is more cost effective than using separate video interfaces, and additional maintenance and operational expenditure are reduced. It also reduces training time for operators.

WinCC OA VIDEO can be integrated into any existing WinCC OA application in Windows or Linux and it can be configured and expanded online. In accordance with the WinCC OA concept, it can be set up as a redundant unit.

Features

  • Software based, digital and vendor neutral video management system

  • Native integration of video management functions into a SCADA project

  • Integration of the vendor neutral video standard ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum)

  • The configuration, operating messages and commands are stored in data points

  • Integrated in the WinCC OA setup

  • Freely scalable

  • Fits flexible to project requirements

  • Can be redundant

  • Fully integrated into the SCADA environment - can be integrated into any application WinCC OA as simple subproject It can be operated in parallel to the SCADA system in a common system, as well as a separate system in the composite system as a distributed system

  • WinCC OA systems in the composite system can display live- or playback images in their user interfaces

  • VIDEO can access all process data in the composite system, respond to its changes and allow so an easy interaction between video and automation technology
