BroadWare Secures Video

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- BroadWare Technologies, Inc., the leader in distributed video surveillance, today announced that BroadWare StoreSight(TM), a network video surveillance solution built on the BroadWare Media Platform, has been successfully validated on IBM's Store Integration Framework (SIF) platform. This is IBM's flexible, scalable Java(TM) 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), operating environment and componentized architecture, built for retail stores using industry-leading IBM middleware.

As part of a total store solution, this validation ensures retailers of a proven, cost effective means to easily add high-quality visual intelligence over open standards-based IP networks for uses ranging from surveillance, loss prevention, and digital merchandising.

BroadWare StoreSight provides a complete video infrastructure built on IBM's industry-leading middleware. Easily retrofitted and highly scalable, the end-to-end solution enables sharing of video data with other security applications in the store or across a network of stores while also optimizing store bandwidth. SIF validation verifies that BroadWare StoreSight is built on open standards for easy, tight integration and full compatibility with SIF retail applications.

The Ready for IBM Retail Store Innovations -- Store Integration Framework initiative brings together platform-independent software vendors that deliver proven solutions designed and built for the retail industry.
Through this initiative, IBM works with select IBM Business Partners to validate solutions that meet a rigorous assessment of next-generation, open standards-based store environments.

"BroadWare's goal has always been that of interoperability and seamless integration with a wide variety of technologies regardless of industry or application," said Bill Stuntz, CEO of BroadWare Technologies. "SIF certification furthers this goal for retail-specific network video applications implemented within IBM environments. With this important validation now in place, we look forward to working with IBM in delivering open, flexible solutions that meet the whole spectrum of retailers' video needs."
