Porsche Car Dealership Installs ioimage Intelligent Video

HERZLIYA, Israel , February 4 /PRNewswire/ -- ioimage, the pioneer of intelligent video appliances, announced that its video analytics solution has been installed to prevent theft at the Porsche car dealership and showroom in Sunninghill Gauteng, a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa .

With approximately 100 vehicles, each worth on average $150,000, the dealership was looking for a reliable security system that would accurately and dependably detect intruders along 650 meters of fence line, while ignoring environmental influences that lead to false alarms. The solution also needed to have the flexibility to interface with Porsche's Virtual Private Network (VPN) infrastructure to allow central monitoring of its dealerships.

ioimage video analytics was seamlessly integrated into Porsche's CCTV platform to act as an early warning system and to provide instant visual verification of alerts. Since recording initiated only upon alerts, ioimage's solution minimizes irrelevant footage and has also reduced the number of security officers required to monitor video screens.

"In our extensive experience with intruder detection systems, ioimage's video analytics has exceeded our expectations," said Sasha Savin , Managing Director of Goodman Security Technologies (Pty) Ltd., who installed the system and are partners of C3 Shared Services. "Its reliability and ease-of-use make it an extremely efficient solution for installations such as ours."

Porsche is considering adding ioimage intelligent video appliances also to its Durban and Cape Town sites, as part of a nationwide upgrade to its security systems.

"Theft of vehicles and auto parts at high-end car dealerships such as Porsche are on the rise worldwide," said Greg Mendeleev, ioimage Senior Sales Director, EMEA. "Video analytics provides the most effective solution for protecting valuable inventory and reducing the huge costs associated with damages, loss and escalating insurance premiums."
