PESA Partners with VIQ Solutions to Offer PESA A.C.E.S. Multi-Channel AV System

Huntsville, Alabama - June 11, 2015 - PESA, a leading designer and manufacturer of streaming solutions as well as professional audio and video distribution products, has partnered with VIQ Solutions, a leading expert on digital media evidence collection and management, to offer PESA A.C.E.S., a rich media enabled capture and management solution that provides operational profiles specific to many vertical markets. PESA will demonstrate the new system at InfoComm 2015 (Booth 1515), which runs June 17-19 in Orlando, Fla.

Short for Acquire, Collaborate, Explain, and Secure, PESA A.C.E.S. is configured as a two or five-channel video system, with the flexibility to add additional channels and seats licenses. Available now, it combines the PESA Xstream C58 or C22 multi-channel streaming media appliance with VIQ Encompass and AccessPOINT software for sophisticated file capture and management. The result is a comprehensive recording and playback system that simplifies collaboration.

The PESA A.C.E.S. solution architecture includes a regional server fed by fixed and/or mobile recording stations that automatically sync files. Systems can also include a fixed or cloud-based optional central repository. Remote collaboration is enabled via the AccessPOINT Portal, which provides secure, browser-based access to files for authorized parties. Along with on-site commissioning and installation, PESA A.C.E.S. can also include customized user interfaces, online training, and transcription services.

Housed in a compact, 1 RU form factor, the C58 simultaneously encodes up to five independent video sources and eight audio sources for H.264 IP distribution with no sync or latency issues. The C22 supports two video and two audio streams. VIQ’s software offers advanced database technology to simplify logging, searching, annotations, and chain of evidence, and allows integration with third-party case management systems.

“PESA A.C.E.S. has incredible potential to simplify evidence collection for police, but it’s also a great solution for financial, medical, judicial, training, transportation, and command and control markets,” noted John Naylor, PESA vice president of global sales and distribution, streaming products. “As part of a multi-year partnership with VIQ, PESA has developed its Xstream appliances to work with VIQ’s large-scale digital media capture and management solution. PESA A.C.E.S. represents a maturing of this initiative that is scaled to meet the needs of small and mid-sized operations, as well as being based on stable, reliable, field-tested software.”
