Software to detect suspicious drivers and security threats on major UK highway

NEW YORK and London, May 8, 2006 – Aspectus Video Intelligence, Inc., a global leader with the only enterprise grade solution in digital Video Intelligence (VI) and Video Content Analysis (VCA) Technology, today announced that their software is being trialed in 120 cameras along the M6 Motorway in the UK. The software, designed to detect dangerous drivers and suspicious objects, will be demonstrated live at the M6 control center, to selected visitors at the IFSEC exhibition, NEC Birmingham, by their UK partner, Wavelet Technology.

The latest security trial along the M6, one of the UK’s busiest motorways, will detect stopped cars, cars traveling in the wrong direction, people/animals on the road, unattended objects and help in protecting equipment at various sites. Based on unique, patented Image Processing Over IP (IPoIP™) technology, the Aspectus video intelligence software can, following integration into Wavestore's digital recording systems, alert the M6 central security office of potential problems and security threats, thus reducing human cost and false alarm rates.

Buddy Flerl, Executive Vice President Sales and CMO at Aspectus, commented, “To be considered for protecting one of the UK’s major transport routes is testament to the strength and reliability of our technology. Aspectus is committed to providing the industry with the widest event detection capabilities and highest sensitivity – and are looking forward to demonstrating how our technology delivers first class video intelligence at IFSEC.”

Roger Isaacson, MD of Wavelet added, “We recognize that the Aspectus intelligent video incident analysis software is a tremendous value adder to the Wavestore range of digital recording systems. Aspectus have created a brilliant solution for the higher performance applications, and we are pleased that we are able to host their product in ours. The opportunity to link it with the installation of our machines at M6 is timely for the IFSEC visitors. We plan to roll this product out to many of our existing installations.”

Wavelet and Aspectus will be exhibiting at booth number 201 in hall 7 at IFSEC, NEC Birmingham, UK, from 8th-11th May.
