Surveillance Operator Simulator Reviewed

By Carlton Purvis, Published Mar 12, 2014, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

Can you train a surveillance operator to detect suspicious behavior without them even looking at a live camera. One company, VSTEP, thinks so. Vstep is the maker of EyeObserve [link no longer available], a surveillance operator simulation program that the military has its eye on and is being used by the Rotterdam police to train its surveillance operators.

In this note, we review the offering and share details based on a discussion with the company.
