In The Boardroom With...
Mr. Scott Paul
Senior Product Marketing Manager
SecurityStockWatch.com: Please give us an overview of your
background and your role at Pelco by Schneider Electric.
Scott Paul: I have 12-years of experience with
Product Marketing in both the video security and IT industries. My current
roll at Pelco by Schneider Electric is as the Senior Product Marketing
Manager for the Sarix family of fixed IP cameras. I manage the launch
of new products and provide oversight for training, communications, product
demonstrations and sales plans. I set the strategy for how to position,
price and promote these cameras in the marketplace, and I work directly
with our global sales force to provide support.
SecurityStockWatch.com: Any new product introductions on the horizon?
Scott Paul: Yes! We are very excited to have introduced
a new technology that is leading the way in Image Quality. Sarix with
SureVision technology is a game changer for image quality in the video
security industry. This is a state-of-the-art technology exclusive to
Pelco by Schneider Electric that handles light as well as the naked eye.
SureVision incorporates Wide Dynamic Range, LowLight and Anti-Bloom capabilities
into a single technology. Sarix cameras featuring this technology simultaneously
adjust to bright light, low light and back-light to deliver the best possible
image in the most difficult lighting conditions.
SecurityStockWatch.com: On your website www.Pelco.com
it says, Sarix is a groundbreaking technology platform that defines
the next generation of imaging performance. Please give us an overview
Scott Paul: I guess the easiest way to answer that question
is to look at the three pillars of Sarix technology. The first is Imaging
Science. Sarix delivers best-in-class image quality with advanced lowlight
capability and consistent color science. The next pillar is Industrial
Design. Simply put, this means that the cameras are designed to save time
and money on installation with features like Auto Back Focus (ABF), a
service jack and the mini/micro SD card. The final pillar is Processing
Power. Sarix features High-Profile H.264 compression for optimized image
quality and minimized bandwidth. Sarix also enables users to run both
Pelco and OV Analytic suites.
SecurityStockWatch.com: Lets talk about the Sarix
value proposition. What are the financial advantages of Sarix, especially
during these challenging economic times?
Scott Paul: Sarix cameras are designed to maximize value.
They are competitively priced and offer advanced features like ABF, CS
mount lenses and built-in Pelco Analytics. Our Sarix IM Series Mini Domes
are particularly value-driven, offering the advanced technology of Sarix
at the most affordable price point. And getting back to the Industrial
Design pillar of the technology, users save time and money with ABF and
the Analog Service Jack. With these features, installers can auto focus
the camera remotely, saving them an additional trip up the ladder. This
is a real advantage over the competition. Finally, Pelco by Schneider
Electric provides a complete end-to-end solution featuring Sarix fixed
IP cameras, Spectra HD, IP and Analog PTZ domes, and IP ready Video Management
Systems. By investing in the complete Pelco by Schneider Electric system,
customers can ensure an integrated, robust and fully supported solution
by one provider, saving time and expense on installation system integration.
SecurityStockWatch.com: Congratulations on the Pelco
by Schneider Electric success story at The Greenbrier Casino Club in West
Scott Paul: Thank you.
SecurityStockWatch.com: Without divulging any confidential
information, of course, can you tell us about the solution Pelco by Schneider
Electric provided here?
Scott Paul: We were able to provide an extremely
powerful and flexible solution for this world-class resort and casino.
In addition to their nearly 700 guest rooms, meeting facilities and three
championship golf courses, Greenbrier recently added a 103,000-square-foot
casino. We were able to create a virtual matrix installation with Endura
2.0 that allowed them to seamless tie the new 400 IP cameras protecting
the casino with their existing analog system. They are using both Sarix
and Spectra IV IP cameras with great success.
