XSI Licenses and Deploys Advanced Homeland Security Solutions with Robotic Cameras

Envisions thousands of robotic cameras enhancing security efforts traditionally limited by cost and resources


XSi, an IP-based security surveillance provider, announced it will deploy the largest security surveillance network in the Americas. The company is also pleased to announce the recent licensing of its technologies in the states of Texas and New Mexico as part of its rollout.

Mike Pyles of XSi Texas Inc. said: "We are excited about the technology solutions we are able to provide to businesses and individuals desiring to protect their critical assets from potential threats. XSi's systems allow us to offer a cost-effective solution to business and residential users for monitoring and protecting their assets, and detecting threats and intrusions. We anticipate a growing demand for our advanced security solutions as threats to the safety of individuals and governments increase."

XSi is an advanced, remote video network security solution designed to monitor and protect critical assets across wide areas and/or in multiple locations. XSi develops complete end-to-end scalable solutions that can be deployed rapidly, operated cost-effectively and integrated seamlessly into most legacy infrastructures. The solution provides an advanced defensive architecture against intrusion by using sophisticated technologies that detect, identify, communicate and respond to any breaches in security.

XSi can be used by law enforcement to monitor beaches, harbors, airports and government facilities over a private network to quickly assess and monitor situations as they arise during a breach in security. As quoted by Tom Ridge, director of Homeland Security: "America has historically used to its advantage the science and technology and the creative minds of Americans. We've always used our edge in innovation to defeat our enemies." XSi's latest innovations in security are designed to help keep government officials abreast of the critical assets we don't have the man power to protect. With XSi, emergency personnel, both locally and remotely, can view live video with Microsoft's Windows Media 9/10 and control cameras via an Internet connection and immediately respond in a collaborative effort, across multiple jurisdictions, as a crisis unfolds.

"In New Mexico, Seno J Inc. and XSi will analyze the current infrastructure for weaknesses. We will place smart robotic camera systems throughout schools, train stations and tracks, courts and government buildings, highways, and state festivals and fairs to strengthen the overall feeling of security for the citizens," said Franklin Jones of Seno J Inc. "Within a few short years the camera network will be accessed from a multitude of devices for a myriad of reasons. If parents want to see what their children study at school, it can be available."

"After extensive R&D, we have designed a best-of-breed solution that we feel integrates the latest technology across the board," said Director Chris Carmichael. Infrared cameras, like those used by soldiers in Operation Iraqi Freedom, have the ability to display vivid high-contrast video in absolute darkness, through fog and smoke and operate under extreme weather conditions. XSi uses highly sensitive IP-networked cameras made by Sony as well as other specialized camera manufacturers.

The company is also working to incorporate Sony's new Blu-ray optical camera recording technology that uses a short-wavelength blue-violet laser instead of the red laser technology used in current optical drives. Blu-ray will enable XSi to record camera feeds in high-definition for some of the company's broadcast initiatives. Blu-ray Disc technology allows for 27GB storage capacities on a single-sided 12cm disc compared to 4.7GB of storage on a DVD.
