VAN NUYS, Calif., April 8, 2015 – Louroe Electronics, the world leader in audio monitoring within the security industry announces Aggression Detector software using advanced audio analytics with Sound Intelligence, an audio classification software developer based in the Netherlands. Over the next several months, Louroe will introduce two additional products with analytic capability: a Gunshot Detector and a Glass Break Detector.
Together, Louroe and Sound Intelligence will deliver the most sophisticated audio solutions on the market. The Aggression Detector integrates Louroe’s microphones, select Axis IP cameras, and leading video management software. Similar to how the human ear processes audio, the program analyzes noises through advanced algorithms and detects specific sounds such as verbal aggression. As a result, end users can identify high-risk situations in real-time and prevent acts of physical aggression before they happen. The software is simple to install, easy to configure, and currently compatible with select Axis IP cameras. Louroe and Sound Intelligence will showcase the advanced audio security system at ISC West in booth number 8038. The companies will be working jointly on advancing the value and technology of software and hardware products through a technology development program.
“For the past 36 years Louroe has been manufacturing sophisticated hardware within the security industry. Introducing software to our lineup of products strengthens Louroe’s presence in the industry for years to come,” said Richard Brent, CEO of Louroe Electronics. “We are excited to bring analytics to our microphones and in turn introduce a smarter, sound solution to the security marketplace.
“We are so proud of the innovation and deep impact our technology has had on the audio sector. A number of popular microphones have been qualified by SI to provide the level of audio quality required to optimize the result of the SI audio algorithms such as detection of aggression.” said Daan van Kootwijk, Managing Director of Sound Intelligence. “We are thrilled to partner with industry leader, Louroe Electronics.”
