IndigoVision SMS4 release 3 software coordinates responses between agencies and operatives with real-time video. The system automatically validates incoming data to verify events, escalating video for management of the situation to personnel in other locations and ensuring an appropriate response. Operatives are provided with both real-time and recorded video, giving them the “eyes and ears” to assess the situation. The SMS4 release 3 starts with the qualification of incoming data to filter out false alerts so personnel can focus on likely threats. The system also allows for embedding prior intelligence by noting the sequence and combination of events that may constitute a situation. Qualified alerts that are not assessed within a certain time period are then automatically passed along a chain of operators, accompanied by real-time contextual video, to guarantee a swift response.
