VidSys Previews VidShield 4.0

LAS VEGAS -- VidSys, the leading provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solutions for safety, security, surveillance, military and transportation organizations, today announced it will preview VidShield 4.0 at ISC West 2007 (booth #31003). With a dynamic Web-based user interface and improved ease-of-use features, the newest version of the company’s PSIM platform will enable security personnel in operations centers to more efficiently manage events, while improving situational awareness and policy implementation.

Supporting the convergence of video management for security and surveillance applications with incident and event management, PSIM solutions like VidShield 4.0 integrate multiple, often siloed products and systems, including various video protocols and formats, into a single seamless management platform. The integrated platform captures and correlates real-time events from multiple systems, allowing more effective collaboration, escalation and notification by integrating with existing communications infrastructure.

VidShield 4.0 Improves Security Event Management and an Organization’s Ability to Respond Effectively

With this newest version of VidShield, security personnel in operations centers will benefit from a centralized, intuitive and visually appealing solution that improves collaboration and event management and further supports the convergence of physical and IT security assets. VidShield 4.0 highlights include:

  • Dynamic, Web-Based User Interface: An intuitive user interface provides a single view of multiple security feeds and tools that can incorporate analog and digital video in live or recorded formats. Users can also invoke tools that enable video drag and drop, event escalation, video wall management, desktop sharing and live chat. A new thin client provides better remote management and the ability to push data to other devices, such as mobile phones.
  • Dynamic Visualization and Improved Data Representation: VidShield 4.0 provides active data representation and the ability to graphically track and display information, including sensor and positional data. The new user interface can incorporate Geographical Information System (GIS), Global Positioning System (GPS) and Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies to actively track vehicles, personnel, containers and other assets. Camera representation also allows users to display and select devices based on location, trouble spots or availability.
  • Comprehensive Event Management: New event capture capabilities provide a wider aperture for event management, enabling security personnel to capture and analyze incidents that may have happened hours apart. VidShield 4.0 will feature a new rules engine that can easily generate use cases to enable security systems to quickly identify new threats and improve organization’s effectiveness. Additionally, the new modular server architecture scales to manage a virtually unlimited number of events. Sophisticated rules capabilities enable better correlation between events, while helping to automate escalation processes.
