IDV Solutions, LLC and SureView Systems, LLC recently announced that the companies have formed a technical partnership and completed an integration of SureView’s Immix® CC video-centric event management platform with IDV Solutions’ Visual Command Center® enterprise risk visualisation (ERV) platform.
Using the combination of the two technologies, security operations teams can receive and process real time events from Visual Command Center in Immix CC and view live video from Immix CC within Visual Command Center. This integration enables users to make more efficient use of video, by identifying and accessing cameras near those locations where Visual Command Center has identified a potential threat and automatically associating these threats with dynamic workflows and enforceable Standard Operating Procedures within the Immix CC event management interface.
Visual Command Center provides security operations teams with a single, comprehensive view of their assets—such as buildings, employee locations, corporate events and supply routes—along with events that may threaten those assets, including acts of terrorism, severe weather, civil unrest, and hazardous materials releases. It consolidates information from multiple sources, including Web feeds and an organization’s internal systems, on an interactive map and timeline.
When Visual Command Center detects a potential threat near an asset or employee location, it automatically alerts operators, who can use powerful visualisation, filtering, and query tools to assess the threat, and then act to mitigate risk.
SureView Systems’ Immix CC is a video-based alarm monitoring platform for command centers. The software platform consolidates activities from any data source including video surveillance, access control intrusion, two way audio and GPS alarms. Immix enables organizations to centralize their security monitoring, including video surveillance, and lower ongoing costs.
Integration of the two software products lets users access their security cameras from maps and floor plans in Visual Command Center. When security operators receive an alert from Visual Command Center, they can use query and filtering tools to locate cameras near the alert location and then view those live video streams.
“Visual Command Center provides a ‘big picture’ view of global, regional, and local risk factors,” said Mark Morrison, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, IDV Solutions. “While Immix CC provides ‘up close’ situational awareness through video monitoring. This integration will increase security operators’ ability to use video to protect facilities and employees.”
“Our strategic partnership with IDV Solutions delivers expanded situational awareness, enforceable workflows and world-class visualisation of assets to our rapidly expanding customer base,” said Rob Hile, Director of Strategic Accounts, SureView Systems. “By combining our core strengths into one technology offering, we can truly deliver an ‘out of the box’ solution to our customers without custom development efforts that are expensive to build and maintain over time.”
