Integration Overview: Pelco ASCII Integration

The ASCII integration Service is capable of listening for ASCII commands on a serial port or Ethernet port or optionally both simultaneously. Commands are translated from ASCII into the protocol used by VideoXpert. The ASCII command set used by Pelco has evolved over the years and has several different flavors depending upon the device implementing the command set. Examples of functionality include the ability to command VideoXpert to display certain cameras within nominated monitor cells, change display layouts, trigger PTZ actions such as presets/patterns or send and acknowledge alarm events within the Vx system.

The ASCII Integration Service is capable of being configured, through various XML files, to listen for ASCII commands on a serial port or Ethernet port or optionally both simultaneously. Commands are translated from ASCII into the protocol used by VideoXpert. The ASCII Translator Configuration Tool provides the ability to configure these various XML configuration files through a user interface.
