PSIA to highlight NICE Situator PSIM platform during interoperability reception at ASIS

PSIA specifications in solution enables third party IP video surveillance products to be automatically recognized


The NICE Security Offering addresses the needs of governments and enterprises with intent-based solutions for fighting crime and terror, by anticipating, managing and mitigating safety, security and operational risks. The offering enables capturing, analysis and correlation of data from multiple sensors and systems, including audio, video, radio, geo-location and web, providing a framework for fusing data silos into a single, holistic operational view. NICE Security solutions empower organizations to act effectively in real time to prevent, manage and investigate incidents, ensuring fast resolution and debriefing, and continuous security improvements. NICE Security solutions are deployed worldwide in transportation systems, critical infrastructures, city centers and enterprise campuses.

The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance is a global consortium of more than 75 physical security manufacturers and systems integrators focused on promoting interoperability of IP-enabled security devices across all segments of the security industry. Participating companies include Arecont Vision, ASSA ABLOY, Cisco Systems, GE Security, Genetec, Hikvision, Honeywell, IBM, IQinVision, Kastle Systems, March Networks, Milestone Systems, NICE Systems, ObjectVideo, OnSSI, Pelco, Stanley Security, Texas Instruments, Tyco International, Verint and Vidsys.

PSIA’s objective is to develop standards relevant to networked physical security technology. Under the direction of its Board of Directors, PSIA promotes and develops open standards relevant to networked physical security technology across all segments including video surveillance, access control, video analytics, storage and recording devices, and software.

PSIA supports license-free standards and specifications, which are vetted in an open and collaborative manner to the industry as a whole. There are currently five active working groups: IP Video, Video Analytics, Recording and Content Management, Area Control and Systems. The organization reviewed and ratified its IP Media Device specification in March 2008 and since then, more than 1,700 companies have registered for the specification.
