Montreal, Quebec. Thursday, May 24, 2007. ImmerVision, the expert in 360-degree Panoramic Imaging Technology and developer of the IMV1-1/3 Panomorph lens for video surveillance, announced today that InitSys and Aimetis now offer ImmerVision Enables functionality thus 360-degree panoramic capability. Furthermore, Aimetis an innovative market leader in video analytics and Open IP-Surveillance software, is the first to go panoramic in the Video Analytics market. This week Verex, Petards, Aimetis and InitSys will be demonstrating their ImmerVision Enables functionality with the IMV1-1/3 panomorph lens at IFSEC, the leading global event for the security industry in the U.K. from May 21 through 24, 2007.
The IMV1-1/3 Panomorph lens and its ability to be used on installed surveillance systems, is a major technological development for the video surveillance industry and is a big step forward in visually securing high risk public and commercial areas. The IMV1-1/3 lens, used in conjunction with any ImmerVision Enables DVR or NVR, will make any standard analog or IP camera see panoramically.
"Even highly secured areas, where hundreds of the most sophisticated video surveillance cameras are used, face dangerous blind spots in their security grids," said Pascale Nini, President and CEO of ImmerVision. "Since the launch of the IMV1-1/3 panomorph lens in the fall of 2006, we are seeing an increased demand from both the U.S. and Europe to fill these grid holes with 360-degree panoramic technology.
ImmerVision's revolutionary Panomorph technology is the recipient of the 2007 Frost & Sullivan Award for North American Technology Innovation of the Year. With a mission to "invent and bring panoramic technologies to the world," the ImmerVision team develop both Panomorph optics and software algorithms to enable panoramic functionalities that can be used on any common video device for numerous applications such as video conferencing, automotive, medical, aerospace and security. ImmerVision's IMV1-1/3 lens fits on any CS Mount security camera with a 1/3" sensor from 480 TVL to 1.2 MP, which is standard for video surveillance cameras, making the IMV1-1/3 lens a universal solution to some of the outdated surveillance systems in the market today. The term PANOMORPH, used by the scientific community, is derived [from the Greek word pan meaning all, horama meaning view, and morph meaning form.] To date ImmerVision has established six (6) worldwide patents for its visionary technology comprised of panomorph optics and software. It began its research activities in France in 1999 and in 2003, under the leadership of Pascale Nini, President and CEO of ImmerVision, moved its headquarters to Montreal, Canada.
