Hackensack, NJ -- August 23, 2006 -- ioimage US (www.ioimage.com), the pioneer of intelligent video appliances designed for simplicity in installation and operation, announced today that the US State Department has deployed ioimageâ€™s video surveillance system at a compound in Kabul, Afghanistan to protect the facility from security breaches.
The intelligent video system from ioimage is part of a complete security solution to track activity outside the walls of the US compound and to detect any security breaches. ioimage's intelligent video appliances enable dozens of pan/tilt/zoom and fixed cameras to monitor activity outside the compound and to alert security guards to suspicious events and insurgent attacks.
The ioimage system is part of a new security solution that was installed at the compound by security systems integrator High-Ground Corp. of Nashville, Tenn. The project also included integrating ioimageâ€™s system with infrared illuminators in poorly lit areas, a central command center, wiring and power generators.
â€œThe ioimage video analytics solution was extremely easy to deploy,â€ said Tom Wiese, chief operating officer of High-Ground Corp. â€œWe didnâ€™t have any prior experience with ioimageâ€™s intelligent video appliances, but it only took a few days to get the complete system up and running, including installation, configuration and integration of dozens of cameras located throughout the compound.â€
The security project presented several challenges for High-Ground Corp., which turned the project around in 45 days, from the bid submission to completed installation. The compound needed a security system that provided real-time alerts to security breaches because it is located in a busy area next to a highway and shares several walls with other compounds.
â€œWe wanted the solution to be fairly simple to install and easy to operate,â€ said Wiese. â€œThis system allowed us to select specific fields of views, so if anyone or anything comes over the compound wall, security guards are alerted immediately.â€
ioimageâ€™s products are designed for both mid and high-end security installations, providing both markets with high performance functionality and systems that are easy to operate. The system is intuitive, highly reliable and compatible with existing surveillance infrastructure.
â€œThe US State Department joins a growing list of government agencies that utilize ioimageâ€™s intelligent video systems for their ease of installation and operation and high performance,â€ said Roni Kass, ioimageâ€™s CEO and founder. â€œioimageâ€™s solutions are ideal for homeland security as well as for commercial applications, to detect security breaches, trespassing and thefts.â€
