SightLogix highlights thermal analytics for ports and bridges

Company’s solutions provide accurate intruder detection with low nuisance alarms for waterside applications


Philadelphia, PA (September 10, 2012) – At ASIS 2012, SightLogix, the leading smart thermal camera manufacturer for perimeter security applications, is highlighting the intruder detection accuracy of their outdoor thermal video analytics systems for facilities located near water, including ports, bridges and other critical infrastructure assets.

Recent SightLogix installations demonstrate the value of SightLogix thermal analytics in waterside applications, including several bridges across the Hudson River which together serve more than 1 million Hudson River crossings each week. Other customers using SightLogix thermal analytics solutions include the Port of Jacksonville (FL), the Alabama Port Authority, Port of Brownsville (TX), Houston Ship Channel, Virginia Port Authority, Port of Oakland, Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel and the Merrimac Bridge Tunnel. SightLogix thermal analytics function with a high degree of accuracy in harsh environments to deliver a cost-effective outdoor security solution for many critical sites, including petroleum refineries, nuclear facilities, electrical substations, and airports

“Waterside installations, such as ports and maritime applications, present a number of challenges for intruder detection solutions,” said John Romanowich, President and CEO, SightLogix. “SightLogix systems can detect intruders despite background water movement or reflections, making them a uniquely capable solution for waterside environments.”

Recent advances in thermal camera image processing have expanded their traditional role as night vision cameras to provide 24-hour outdoor security. SightLogix Thermal SightSensors provide clear, detailed thermal images night and day, and can detect intrusions across site perimeters, enclaves and outdoor areas in complete darkness or in bright sun. To endure the challenges of the water environments, SightSensors are enclosed in ruggedized, NEMA 4X nitrogen-sealed enclosures.

At ASIS 2012, SightLogix will display the Thermal SightSensor video analytic camera, offering the most accurate outdoor detection capabilities and clearest images at mainstream pricing, and the Clear24 thermal camera, a new benchmark in thermal video image clarity. For temporary or long-term surveillance applications, SightLogix offers the Video Security Trailer (VST), a self-contained rapidly deployable perimeter security solution. Open-architecture SightLogix systems work seamlessly with approximately 30 technology partners, including many video management, access control and physical security information management (PSIM) systems.
