Cernium unveils analytics application for video management systems

New version of Perceptrak can be integrated with Milestone XProtect; other systems to follow


RESTON, Va., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Cernium Corporation, the leading developer of video analytics-enabled products, announced today the launch of its next-generation Perceptrak(R) software, which seamlessly integrates with leading video management systems to provide full-spectrum, intelligent video analytics capabilities to enterprise-class IP video surveillance installations. Milestone Systems' XProtect Enterprise video management software is the first in a planned series of world-class video management systems to be fully integrated with the new Perceptrak application.

"As analytics become an essential tool for proactive video surveillance, there is a very real need for them to be available on all cameras, all the time," said Craig Chambers , president and CEO of Cernium Corporation. "This new generation of Perceptrak makes that goal a reality with an unprecedented combination of power, flexibility and ease of operation at an affordable cost."

The new Perceptrak builds upon Cernium's field-tested, leading P-Core video analytics engine operating on the company's powerful, efficient High Density Analytics Server appliance. P-Core enables any combination of behaviors to be detected on any camera, thereby adapting to a wide range of environments and security policies for real-time, automated 24x7 monitoring. By adding meta tags to user-defined events of interest, Perceptrak can also retrieve critical information from hours of video within seconds to support investigations or the management of risk and business operations.

Perceptrak's open standards software operates on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computing hardware and scales with video management systems as IP video networks continue to grow. The result is lower cost of ownership and the flexibility to evolve along with changing security requirements.

Cernium will demonstrate Perceptrak at ISC West at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas , NV from April 2-4 in Booth # 9057. The product will be generally available in Summer 2008. For more information on Cernium and its products, visit http://www.cernium.com.
