Vicon and ObjectVideo Integrate Software, Announce Strategic Partnership

Digital and IP video solutions developer Vicon Industries will integrate ObjectVideo's VEW intelligent video surveillance software with the Vicon video management platform ViconNet.

The two companies also announced that Vicon will have the right to market and distribute ObjectVideo software as part of what the companies are calling a "strategic partnership."

The ViconNet management platform supports digital and IP video, and the system is design for managing recording, storage and recall of video. The ObjectVideo VEW intelligent video algorithms that will integrate to the ViconNet system are used to create video rules. In an example that the company showcased at ISC, the software can be used to create an alert if a person crosses a user-defined point in the recorded area -- a "virtual tripwire" of sorts. The system allows for dispersing of that alert via a variety of means including phone, email and more.
