Video Intelligence Firm Ioimage Opens U.S. Headquarters

Israeli firm ioimage, a video analytics developer, announced this week that it was entering the U.S. market. The company opened its U.S. headquarters in Hackensack, N.J., on Tuesday,

The company says its chief attribute is the "simplicity" that ioimage brings to the U.S. market, using a stand-alone hardware device for processing of video intelligence, rather than using the software add-on design that many of its competitors have employed.

The product line primarily consists of video encoders designed to not only convert analog video feeds into IP-based streams, but the encoders also add video analytics like intruder and vehicle tracking, unattended object recognition, and removed items. The encoders allow for alarms to be sent to security staff.

The company first offered video analytics for security applications in 2003, and the company reports that it will be demonstrating its video intelligence products at the ASIS show in San Diego, booth #3152. Ioimage is online at
