Along with the new perimeter surveillance behaviors, SmartCatch 2.5 includes an array of new features, including built-in interfaces for integration with the leading access control systems that have UL compliant interfaces. The system is also able to support the most widely used hand-held communications devices, supporting the Palm, OS/Win and CE/Symbian mobile operating systems.
Integrated Alert Management Response System
Vidient continues to set new standards in the market for intelligence video surveillance software, and its integration of a powerful and scalable alert management response system into SmartCatch 2.5 is the latest example. Vidient SmartCatch 2.5 is the only comprehensive video surveillance system that provides real-time identification, dissemination and response coordination of live security breaches, including an escalation workflow system for coordinating all security personnel within an enterprise as well as with those within the local community, state and even national security organizations. It provides multiple live camera views and can view any combination of cameras.
Vidient, which recently received the Frost & Sullivan 2005 Innovation Award as part of the research firm's Video Surveillance Software Market Report, now has its SmartCatch solution in use in select institutions, corporate facilities and major international airports in San Francisco, San Diego and Salt Lake City. The company has also received grant funding from the Transportation Safety Administration.
