OnSSI Ocularis Connector

The OnSSI Ocularis connector enables HVS to communicate and integrate with Ocularis. Video from Ocularis will be seamlessly integrated and displayed within the HVS interface. Within HVS Ocularis can then be correlated to be used with other HVS features. The integration relies upon the capabilities of the Ocularis SDK v5.2.0.405 to provide feature accessibility within HVS.
