Matrox Graphics newest standalone multiviewer card offers versatility

MONTREAL May 16, 2017 Today, Matrox® Graphics announced the immediate availability of the award-winning Matrox Mura IPX 4K IP decode and display card.

Shipping today, the new PCI Express® card offers H.264 decoding of two 4Kp60, four 4Kp30, eight 1080p60, sixteen 1080p30 or many more SD streams. Four DisplayPort™ outputs—at resolutions up to 4K per display—make it a cost-effective, easy-to-integrate multiviewer for control rooms and AV presentation systems in security, corporate, defense, aerospace, utilities, government, medical, and education environments.

Buzz surrounding the Mura IPX decode and display card began last year; at its debut appearance, the card brought home a Best of Show Award at InfoComm 2016. Specifically, MURA-IPX-O4DF is a PCIe® x8 Gen2 card delivering high-density H.264 decoding and 4K video display in 32-bit color on each of the four DisplayPort outputs.

"The Mura IPX 4K IP decode and display card allows for some of the industry's highest density IP-enabled multiviewer applications," said Fadhl Al-Bayaty, product manager, Matrox Graphics. "By providing multiple outputs on the same card, tied with powerful control software, video wall integrators and system builders have everything they need to deliver a modern multiviewer."

The standalone card is a uniquely "system-free" card, making for an energy efficient and versatile solution available in all environments a multiviewer is required.

Al-Bayaty elaborated on this point, “Only requiring the PCIe for power means the Mura IPX decode & display is much more than system independent, it doesn’t require the system at all.”

AV integrators are provided all of the controls to deploy video walls with Matrox MuraControl™ video wall management software for Windows® and iPad®, and the Matrox Network API enables ISVs to expose new capabilities within their own software. Added functionality specifically for multiviewer applications has been integrated into the cards, with text overlay to indicate window titles, stream sources, locations, or zones, and onscreen clock providing a temporal reference for accurate stream monitoring.

Genetec to add latest version of Free-Flow with its Security Center platform

MONTREAL MAY 10, 2017 Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions will showcase the latest version of AutoVu™ Free-Flow off-street parking management solution at this year’s IPI Conference and Expo in New Orleans, at booth #1115. Designed to help increase parking enforcement efficiency by providing a real-time inventory of vehicles parked illegally in monitored parking lots, Free-Flow will now be offered within Genetec Security Center, the company’s unified security platform that combines video surveillance, access control and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR).

Catching parked vehicles in violation is a challenge for many parking organizations. Business managers estimate that they apprehend less than a quarter of parking violators. With AutoVu Free-Flow, parking enforcement officers can easily identify lots with unenforced violations and dynamically adjust their patrol routes to maximize violation capture rates. A growing number of parking property owners are investigating gateless parking to reduce vehicle congestion and provide a more convenient and efficient parking experience. AutoVu Free-Flow provides the technology to forego using gates, while maintaining compliance with parking rules.

With Free-Flow now an integral part of Security Center, parking managers will be able to monitor occupancy and violations across all their parking lots, directly from one location. Genetec™ Plan Manager provides an added interactive and graphical mapping application allows operators to better visualize and manage environments. With Plan Manager and Free-Flow in Security Center, parking lot owners will now be able to dynamically navigate and oversee a large number of properties via their installed ALPR and associated video surveillance cameras for real-time, correlative coverage.

When parking occupancy reaches a certain threshold, parking managers can rely on Free-Flow to trigger actions advising customers that parking space count is low, or the lot is full or closed using third party signage within the parking property. This allows parking officers to direct customers accordingly and better-manage lots, especially in complex urban environments.

“Free-Flow provides parking officers a real-time view of how many vehicles are in parking lots across all their facilities, and how many are parked illegally. With these precise details of where and when violations are taking place, parking managers know where to dispatch officers to ensure higher compliance,” said Charles Pitman, Product Marketing Manager at Genetec. “Taking advantage of map-based information and communicating parking availability improves the customer experience. Meanwhile, business owners gain access to a trove of data that helps them make better informed parking infrastructure and policy decisions,” added Pitman

All attendees at the IPI Tradeshow (New Orleans, May 24th 2017) are encouraged to attend ‘A Pragmatic Look at Big Data: Perspectives from License Plate Recognition’. This speaking session will be presented by Charles Pitman, Product Marketing Manager for AutoVu. The talk will be held from 9:15-10:15 AM in rooms 238 and 239 of the Ernest N Morial Convention Center.

The first series of updates for Genetec Free-Flow are expected to be available at the end of May 2017. Additional updates are planned in early July 2017, and are available through any AutoVu premier or certified fixed partner.

3M releases latest version of license plate reader software

ST. PAUL‚ MN May 11, 2017 Law enforcement agencies bring stability to a world that is full of uncertainty, which is a task that requires the most advanced and up-to-date technology. In order to make agencies operate more efficiently, 3M is proud to announce the second upgrade to 3M™ Plate Alert Analytical ALPR Software, making the first ALPR software powered by data fusion analytics even better. Plate Alert is an advanced and comprehensive back-office software that features new capabilities for officers and uses proactive alerts and data fusion analytics to provide instant and useful information for law enforcement.

3M™ Plate Alert Analytical ALPR Software version 1.2 contains a significant number of new features and improvements, including upgraded data sharing, investigative power, and data security. Additionally, the new version also improves the ease-of-use to both new users, as well as experienced users who may be migrating from other systems.

With the updated Plate Alert software, data sharing is now easier, quicker, and more secure. Information can be shared to and from 3M’s previous back-office software systems, also known as BOSS, through the data sharing interface in both systems, thus enabling the users of Plate Alert to run license plate inquiries against BOSS databases and quickly return results, and vice versa. This functionality allows users to maintain the connection with the agencies using BOSS, while seamlessly transitioning to Plate Alert.

When it comes to license plate analysis, one of the most important factors is the investigative power of the software. Version 1.2 of 3M’s Plate Alert software provides improved and upgraded investigative tools. Plate Alert can now be configured to include data from vehicle identification databases or systems, such as Intrinsic’s Mantis vehicle identification software. Once configured, additional metadata like make, model, color and body can be included in the license plate reads, which allows users to search vehicle details through data inquiries.

After a license plate search is completed, using the convey-on-demand feature, users can identify vehicles driving together with the vehicle found in the result with one click. Investigators can use this function to detect stalking suspects, and associate vehicles or gang members in drug interdiction. Plate Alert can now generate common plate analysis based on date, time, location, and other information. This feature assists police agencies to discover hidden correlations and find investigative leads.

The new version of Plate Alert also provides improved data security through enhanced data encryption; more powerful auditing and reporting, along with configurable system settings, allow agencies to meet their own data security policies.

“3M is proud of the partnership we have with law enforcement agencies, and we continuously work to build and improve software that makes their jobs easier,” said Olivia He, Global Marketing Manager of ALPR. “The 3M™ Plate Alert Analytical ALPR Software version 1.2 features upgrades that allow agencies to find connections between an increased number of sources in a shorter amount of time, improving the user experience and the results provided.”

In addition to the increased data sharing, investigative power, and data security, the enhanced version of 3M’s Plate Alert Software features a variety of additional upgrades. These updates include: enriched content in email alerts, active directory, open street map, simple alert list parsing and filtering, and multi-server installation. The new version of 3M's Plate Alert software is available free of charge to all current customers that are under warranty or support.

Nexar solution allows cities to use smartphone, in-car video to manage traffic, infrastructure

Shir

NEW YORK May 10, 2017 Today Nexar , the provider of the world's first vehicle-to-vehicle network for preventing road collisions and enabling autonomous mobility, launched CityStream, a solution that creates digital road maps and captures high-frequency, localized data from the road in real-time.

Using the Nexar connected-dashcam network, CityStream is digitizing the public space and is opening up Nexar's car-sourced data to cities looking for actionable insights into traffic patterns, real-time vehicle routing, city dynamics and infrastructure management.

As part of the launch, Nexar has created an animated video (nxr.cm/citystream) illustrating the connected dashcam network, as well as the CityStream data platform, and the way in which the technology can benefit cities and other municipalities in real-time.

To date, most efforts to gain visibility of a city's roadways require expensive, stationary hardware that has a limited reach. Nexar's CityStream provides an innovative solution by leveraging smartphones that millions of city drivers already own, and as a result, turning every vehicle into a sensor that visually scans the road providing invaluable insights. Nexar's mobile app uses on-device artificial intelligence (AI) to create a digital map to capture the driving scene and produces a low-latency information 'firehose' of GIS tagged objects of road obstacles, traffic conditions, and the state of infrastructure.  

Nexar's approach dramatically changes the economics of smart city projects, significantly reducing the initial cost of deployment, and allowing for rapid integration of new traffic, navigation and operation applications. Municipalities and city agencies can benefit from this data in real-time by unlocking a variety of applications, such as congestion management, first response management, parking and mass transportation optimization, city sanitation operations, and public safety.

"Currently, even the most heavily trafficked cities have only a barebones understanding of what's actually happening on their roads, and so they can't effectively improve operational efficiency," said Eran Shir, CEO of Nexar. "With CityStream, we've pioneered a solution that leverages our Open Vehicle Network and provides a detailed 'x-ray' of any given city every minute-instant, life-saving and time-saving value."

A clearer understanding of the city provides valuable insights for navigation, fleets and ride-sharing services as well. Their drivers are dependent on precise routes and optimized estimated-time-of-arrival (ETA) as they are determined to maximize the efficiency of their driving routes every day.

"We partnered with Nexar and gained access to CityStream with the intent of gaining a live understanding of obstacles and other road events that could influence our planning and ETA," said Oren Shoval, Co-Founder and VP Engineering at ride-sharing service Via. "CityStream's APIs help us strive towards our ultimate goal of providing the most efficient and predictable ride-sharing service possible."

Lockheed Martin drone system used by law enforcement to aid in special needs search and rescue operations

VINEYARD, UT May 10, 2017 Sheriff's agencies are poised to use the Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) Indago quadrotor small unmanned aerial system (UAS) to perform search and rescue operations as part of the Project Lifesaver International (PLI) program that supports clients with autism, Down syndrome and dementia.

Indago is paired with Project Lifesaver's electronic location equipment used by first responders to find special needs individuals who may wander. Upon receiving a distress call, operators can rapidly deploy Indago to locate missing individuals.

Sheriff's offices in New Jersey and Virginia have added the PLI Indago to their inventories, with additional first response agencies soon to join the ranks.

"The Indago UAS will allow us to increase our capabilities in locating a client who has wandered. This new asset will give us the ability to search even more efficiently over a broader area and will increase the probability of a successful recovery," Somerset County New Jersey Sheriff Frank J. Provenzano, who oversees the first sheriff's office in the country to adopt the Indago system. Somerset County has 40 clients enrolled in Project Lifesaver: 23 children who have autism or Down syndrome and 17 adults who have dementia.

"The Indago will give Project Lifesaver agency members the ability to have an airborne asset available quickly to enhance their search capability in bringing loved ones home," said Gene Saunders, Founder and CEO of Project Lifesaver.

First responders have relied on manned aircraft to conduct aerial search and rescue operations. Indago reduces the response time and increases the efficiency of search efforts when time is critical. The 5-lb., collapsible Indago system can be stored in the trunk of any squad car and deployed within a matter of minutes.

"Coupling the Project Lifesaver antenna and control elements with the Indago system expands signal detectability, serves as an airborne relay, and greatly improves the probability of location success across broad search areas," said Rich Bonnett, Indago program manager, Lockheed Martin unmanned systems. "This innovative technology is available for Project Lifesaver agents to further their important public safety mission, and more importantly, to reunite individuals with their families and caretakers."

Indago is used in tasks spanning firefighting, disaster relief, precision agriculture and coastal erosion monitoring. The proven and reliable system has an industry-leading flight time surpassing 45 minutes, and provides high quality data with an electro-optic infrared gimbaled imager to enhance situational awareness and enable real-time decision-making.

Force Protection Video Equipment announces new body camera package for law enforcement

CARY, NC May 2, 2017 Force Protection Video Equipment (OTCQB: FPVDD), which sells HD body camera systems and accessories for law enforcement, announced today that it has begun offering a body camera and evidence software package that is affordable to all size departments.

The Force Pro Package I provides a LE50 32GB body camera, Veripic Evidence Storage Locker software, unlimited tech support and a 3-year warranty to law enforcement departments for $18 per month (3-year contract). This package can be used with in house or cloud storage.

The cost to implement Body Camera programs can create a strain on municipal budgets due to high camera cost and lengthy contracts. The Force Pro 1 package alleviates the overall cost to less than most competitors charge for a camera.

“We have already received over 100 orders for this Force Pro 1 system,” Stated Paul Feldman.

The LE50 key design features are:

Industry leading record time (10 hours @1080,12 hours @720)

50 hours of standby time

32GB of internal tamperproof storage

White LED illumination

Audio announcements

GPS recording

30 second pre and post record

Integration with VeriPic© Evidence Management Software.

Mr. Feldman further commented, "the LE50 was developed using current guidelines that Law Enforcement nationwide have written into their requirements for purchase of Bodycams for their officers. Our camera and software via VeriPic® meets and exceeds these requirements. We are also the first company to build into a Body Camera an audio announcement feature. When the camera first starts to record an announcement clearly states ”ATTENTION AUDIO AND VIDEO RECORDING HAS STARTED”, when the camera's recording mode is stopped it clearly states, “ATTENTION AUDIO AND VIDEO RECORDING HAS STOPPED.” Our studies show when someone is made aware of a recording taking place their attitude and demeanor tend to turn more positive and less aggressive towards police officers.

The LE50 uses white diode lighting in our design because of a safety issue. Cameras that utilize IR lighting can be harmful due the brightness of the IR light and the fact that the human eye does not react to this source of light, there is a high probability of whomever looks at these lights can possible damage or injure their sight.”

VeriPic® is a leading supplier of enterprise photo and evidence management software to Law Enforcement Agencies. Military, Medical Institutions and Corporate customers. VeriPic© products handle evidence in thousands of criminal cases throughout the country. VeriPic® is the holder of multiple patents for their evidence management solution software.

The Force Protection Video LE10 and LE50 cameras are rugged HD design which incorporates Ambarella made chips that allow cameras and other devices to record high definition video. It is the chip supplier of the popular GoPro® (NASDAQ:GPRO) sports cameras.
