CheckVideo OverviewBy: John Honovich, Published on Mar 30, 2009
Manufacturer Description: “The first intelligent video verification product that seamlessly integrates with central alarm station software.”
How the Product is Different:While there are a large number of video analytic offerings, almost none are integrated into central station software or deployed in a low cost appliance designed for connecting to existing analog cameras. OzVision provides remote video verification but not intelligent video analytics. Cernium's CheckVideo is already integrated with Bold's Central Station
Software and can be deployed as a small appliance on-site.
What is the Value of the Product: Video analytics alerts require someone to assess the alert, determine it's validity and dispatch responders as necessary. This is very difficult to do if the alert is simply sent to a manager's phone or PDA. By integrating with a central station, dedicated trained operators can quickly respond to alerts. This can also help overcome the issue with false alerts debilitating video analytics.
Who Can Use the Product: CheckVideo can only be used with Central Station Software that is integrated with Cernium's appliance. Today, publicly announced, this is only Bold.
