Roni Kass to discuss key to making video analysis accessible to mass market

HERZLIYA, Israel, June 21st – Ioimage, the pioneer of intelligent video appliances designed for simplicity, announced today that it is sponsoring and participating in the Video Content Analysis Conference organized by IMS Conferences. In addition to helping professionals gain insight on how Video Content Analysis (VCA) can benefit their organizations, the conference will present case studies that highlight key issues related to this cutting-edge technology.

Taking place in London on June 25-26 at the Hilton Paddington Hotel, the conference will bring together senior executives and decision makers from VCA-related companies, including VCA software developers as well as security equipment manufacturers, integrators and end users.

Recently named the market leader in intelligent video surveillance devices by IMS Research, ioimage is a co-sponsor of the VCA conference. ioimage CEO and Founder, Roni Kass, will participate in an open panel and deliver a leadership lecture titled "Broadening the Reach of Video Content Analysis." Kass' presentation is of particular significance to ioimage, which has helped make video analytics accessible to all organizations regardless of size and level of security need. Kass will trace the historical limitations of early VCA systems, and present the key to a successful penetration to the mass market.

As more organizations worldwide look for new ways to enhance the performance of their video surveillance systems to meet increasing security demands, ioimage has been recognized as a major player in bringing VCA technology to the forefront. "ioimage has been a strong advocate for video content analysis, and is one of the pioneers in the introduction of device-embedded VCA," said James McManus, IMS Research Analyst. "The company has gained a foothold in a market that is predicted to see fierce competition in the coming years." According to an IMS Research Report published in 2006, ioimage achieved 26% of the intelligent video surveillance device market, the fastest-growing segment within the intelligent video industry.

"For years, the security market has claimed that video analytics is one of the most significant technological advances in the industry," Kass said. "However, the focus has mostly been on government and high-risk security industries. My presentation will demonstrate that video analytics designed for simplicity, is accessible to a variety of industrial, commercial and public markets. Ioimage's proven track record with organizations of all sizes shows that broadening the reach of VCA using intelligent video appliances is applicable to any entity."
