SAN DIEGO, ASIS Booth #643, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- 3VR Security, Inc., the pioneers of searchable surveillance, today announced a new standard for intelligent video management across the enterprise. 3VR Version 5.0 is the industry's first video surveillance platform to federate facial surveillance data enabling face watchlists, alerts, and searches across distributed systems. Version 5.0 also includes an API enabling integration and search of data across 3rd party systems like transaction management, POS, and access control. Other new features include enterprise system health monitoring, expanded video input support, and smaller, quieter hardware.
"The largest drivers of loss, vulnerability, and operational cost stem from the inability effectively manage systems and share the critical intelligence across distributed environments," said Stephen Russell, CEO of 3VR Security. "With Version 5.0, shared watchlists and federated searches can be deployed to stop suspects wherever and whenever they strike."
Building on existing features, Version 5.0 expands 3VR's leading facial surveillance features to include single-click publishing of watchlists and instant searches across distributed systems. The new API available in 5.0 allows users to search not only video data like people, objects, and activity, but also data from 3rd party systems. For retail banks this means linking faces to transactions across branches, even if a suspect assumes a false identity.
Other new features in Version 5.0 include:
* Enterprise Health Monitoring: New tools to monitor health of distributed systems, automate software upgrades, and log user activity.
* API: Integrates data from transaction, POS, and access control systems
to 3VR video data including faces, objects, and activity. * Expanded Video Input Support: Hybrid support for analog, IP, PTZ, and megapixel cameras.
* Improved Hardware: New appliances that are smaller, quieter, and more powerful than ever before.
"A unified, 360-degree view of user activity across physical and logical systems is a frequently neglected milestone in physical and logical integration," noted Mark Diodati, Identity and Privacy Strategies Analyst for Burton Group. "Organizations interested in this milestone require a physical security event monitoring mechanism that can index activity, identify users, and integrate into their logical security event correlation systems."
