Princeton, NJ â€“October 15, 2008 â€“ SightLogix, maker of high quality outdoor automated surveillance and detection systems, announced today it has formed a strategic partnership with Proximex. The partnership with Proximex, a leader in physical security information management (PSIM), will provide joint customers with a more reliable, easier to use, and cost effective solution to managing outdoor security.
With the new partnership, SightLogixâ€™ cameras, which reliably detect at long and wide ranges under virtually any weather conditions, will seamlessly integrate with the Proximex Surveillint platform. Surveillint is a premier physical security solution for policy-based incident discovery, connection and resolution. It combines new and existing security systems and provides one complete view of all security activity.
Both SightLogix and Proximex support Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data. Unique to SightLogix SightSensor cameras is powerful integrated analytic processing which tracks all targets with real-time geo-position information. Surveillint supports the display of this information from the SightSensors, so security personnel can better visualize their security zones and any activity within them.
"By reliably detecting geo-referenced targets at long range with a minimum of nuisance alarms, SightLogix has finally made automated surveillance a viable and cost-effective solution for managing all outdoor perimeters and buffer zones," said John Romanowich, SightLogixâ€™ President and CEO. "The fact that weâ€™re committed to an open-systems design," he continued, "allows us to partner with technology leaders like Proximex which can fully utilize our productâ€™s GIS capabilities and bring greater value to our customersâ€™ security structure."
"Integrating GIS mapping of security functions is a powerful tool for establishing instant awareness when managing any outdoor area," said Jack Smith, Proximex CEO.
"SightLogix uses this information to automatically position zoom lens cameras on the target for easy identification. Next, Proximex Surveillint displays security violations, resources, and incident response tasks in real-time to facilitate fast and accurate decisions. With Surveillintâ€™s powerful business logic engine driving decisions and actions, first responders are able to instantly verify alarms with location and correlated information, to immediately have both the 'what' and the 'where' for successful preemption and/or apprehension."
SightLogixâ€™ surveillance solutions have been purchased by the US Department of Homeland Security for their own perimeter security needs and selected by DHS for the 2008 CEDAP program. The companyâ€™s technology has been deployed at critical infrastructures throughout the United States, including Commercial Aviation, Petro-Chemical, DoD, FEDGOV, Electrical Utilities, Water/Waste Water, Data Centers, Ports, Borders, and Rail Transportation, solving some of the toughest outdoor surveillance problems.
