Integrations: Integrating Surveillance Video (1 / 3)

Back to All Topics


WinCC OA VIDEO is used to visualize video components and control cameras and PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) cameras either by means of a control panel or using a keyboard and mouse. The combination of WinCC OA and video surveillance is more cost-effective than using separate video interfaces, and additional maintenance and operational expenditure are reduced.

WinCC OA VIDEO can be integrated into any existing WinCC OA application in Windows or Linux and it can be configured and expanded online. In accordance with the WinCC OA concept, it can be set up as a redundant unit.
