Phorcas PSIM system
May 2013, Products
Protoclea, a South African company has fully developed Phorcas, a sophisticated physical security information system. It is designed to integrate the various parts of a security solution such as cameras, video recorders, fire detection systems, perimeter protection systems, access control systems amongst others.
The system is capable of providing all the basic building blocks required in a PSIM system such as video management, evidence management, peripheral management, health management as some of the most important ones.
The Phorcas system is supported by its sibling, Nobilis, a sophisticated video analytic system. This system is designed to offer video analytics under the most severe conditions and can operate on mega-pixel and normal cameras alike.
The future is not about one-size-fits-all solutions, it is about using systems that work. Phorcas has a unique information management capability to deal with events proactively. This is done through comprehensive analysis of the past and active detection of the present. Instead of only relying on instinctive reactions which could cost resources and are prone to deception, Phorcas offers an intelligent cognitive reaction capability which offers reaction proportional to the threat. This is achieved by the combined analysis of sensors to corroborate one another, the creation of superior visual presentation and the ability to deal with events successfully.
Phorcas Intelligent Visual Display (IVD) is the only system specifically designed to enhance the incident management experience. It is uniquely variable to highlight important events and offers a set of tools to assist the operator; from visual enhancement tools to lighting control and camera controls. In addition the unit offers full access to video recordings, includes an electronic observation book as well as an integrated graphics mapping system which is fully geo-referenced for accurate location display of tracked objects such as vehicles.
