Video Analytics

Avigilon Corporation of Vancouver, Canada, has added the Rialto video analytics appliance family to its product portfolio. The appliances provide real- time event detection and verification, enabling users to proactively identify unusual activity in a monitored scene and take immediate action. The technology, when combined with high-definition video imaging, provides superior perimeter surveillance. The products offer “Teach by Example” functionality, enabling users to give feedback about the accuracy of various alarm events as they are generated. Rialto products learn from the feedback and increase future accuracy, resulting in lower false alarm rates. Other features include true object classification, audio talk-down capabilities, instant notification, ease of installation, and an open platform.

Thermal App

Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd. of Karmiel, Israel, and Lumus Ltd. of Rehovot, Israel, have joined forces to provide mobile long-range night-vision capabilities. The Therm-App mobile device, mounted on headgear, transmits high-resolution images to the Lumus wearable display, providing the user with a large, high-quality image. The combination is ideal for professionals who require hands-free operation in complete darkness or limited visibility. It will help security teams, search-and-rescue responders, and other law enforcement and public safety professionals.

Intrusion Detection

Honeywell of Louisville, Kentucky, has added radar capabilities to its line of Vindicator security systems. Vindicator customers have access to compact surveillance radar systems from SpotterRF of Orem, Utah. These systems can detect intruders along perimeters when traditional radar systems are not practical. The devices, which weigh less than four pounds, use standard Ethernet cables and feature built-in Web servers. They are effective in monitoring wide areas, including bridges, dams, and oil fields. Combining Vindicator’s command-and-control platform with the radar systems makes them ideal for high-security projects. Vindicator’s integration with Pro-Watch access control and MAXPRO Video Management System allows customers to have a com­plete security solution from a single manufacturer.
