IBM to develop packaged security systems
IBM has restructured the way it is selling its Smart Surveillance analytics product in Canada, saying it will produce pre-packaged “cookie cutter” systems for retail, banking and public sector clients who are ready for video analytic tools, rather than sell the system independently.
Mega Video Solutions
IP-CCTV systems are not just a cheaper and more flexible alternative to traditional analogue systems but they have opened up new opportunities for security that are simply not possible with the old technology. It is changing the way the security industry implements CCTV surveillance and has spawned a new concept – Mega Video Solutions.
The Office of Housing in Victoria, Australia, has adopted Omnicast, Genetec's IP video surveillance solution, to protect the residents of approximately 7,000 dwellings within the city's affordable housing development projects.
Within the last four months, five independent police departments within the State of Texas selected AutoVu, Genetec's advanced licence plate recognition (LPR) solution, to automate the recovery of stolen vehicles.
If the electronic security industry self-regulates, what's the most likely outcome?
