Flir launches video security solution
FLIR Systems has announced the launch of the new Site Protection Solution, or SPS, that provides a video security solution for a wide range of applications.
“Our new Site Protection Solution is a powerful combination of thermal cameras and intelligent, adaptive analytics from VideoIQ that provide reliable video security of perimeters and large open areas at any time of the day or night,” said Bill Klink, FLIR’s Vice President of Security and Surveillance.
FLIR’s WDR thermal video provides threat detection and visual alarm assessment even in the most challenging conditions. The SPS couples the high-contrast thermal video signal with VideoIQ’s intelligent, adaptive analytics. These include exclusive FLIR Mode algorithms specifically designed to work with the output of FLIR thermal cameras, virtually eliminating nuisance alarms in both perimeter security and wide-area coverage applications.
“This powerful solution delivers intelligent prevention unlike any other combination of technologies on the market”, said Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, President and CTO for VideoIQ.
With over 50 lens and sensor resolution combinations to choose from, the SPS is sure to have just the right combination of coverage, range, and detail needed to create a reliable virtual perimeter at a surprisingly low cost. Perimeter protection solutions like fence lines can be secured with SPS for as little as $5 per linear foot of coverage. Wide area coverage applications, like rooftops, car impound lots, and athletic fields can be secured for as little as $0.10 per square foot. All of this without the need to install the typical lighting infrastructure needed for visible cameras to work.
For sites with a lighting infrastructure that is already in place, or that needs the added reactive or forensic information provided by visible cameras, many of FLIR’s all-weather, high-definition 2.1MP color cameras can be included in the SPS as well.
In addition to sending automated alarms via email and mobile devices, VideoIQ’s Rialto IP and analog encoders also provide up to 500GB of on-board storage, for reliable, zero-bandwidth recording.
