At ISC West last week, Samsung Techwin and Intelligent Security Systems (ISS) jointly exhibited an integrated video surveillance system that combines Samsung’s video surveillance cameras and devices and ISS video management services (VMS) and image analytics. An open software platform enables the all-in-one solution which has been successfully deployed in stadiums, ports and throughout major cities across Latin America during the past year, the companies said.

“The integrated system supports the automation of a variety of pro-active surveillance tasks within the camera body and allows users to significantly increase the tangible value of their video surveillance and security system,” said Frank De Fina, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Samsung Techwin America. “Based on the success we have experienced to date in Latin America, we are anticipating an expanded footprint in the United States and Canada.”

A selection of Samsung cameras and devices on display feature fully integrated ISS technology including SecurOS license plate recognition, container recognition and facial recognition systems as well as audio support. Compatibility is ensured via real-time transport protocol/real-time streaming protocol (RTP/RTSP) and compliance with Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standards.  

ISS has its roots in space technology, which has led to the development of software with highly advanced algorithms. This in turn makes possible a level of intelligence, flexibility and accuracy for video management and analytics that previously was only available for government and military applications. Analytics are built in to the software, so that even if the customer does not require this feature at the time, it can easily be switched on when it is needed.

“ISS and Samsung are uniquely suited for this application because of their respective areas of expertise,” said Aluisio Figueiredo, chief operating officer of ISS. “The final product solution is ideal for a number of verticals and we look forward to continued growth as we move into the North American market.”
