ISS VMS / Video Analytics Company Profile

Author: Sean Patton, Published on Aug 16, 2018

Who is ISS? In the past few months, they had one of the craziest ISC West promo items in years. Then, they hired industry veteran and ex-Dahua Director Janet Fenner as CMO, who promptly took over Hikvision's abandoned GSX 2018 booth in the middle of the show floor.

But what do they do? 82% of integrators said they knew very little about the company in a recent IPVM survey.

To better understand their positioning, we spoke to ISS about their SecurOS VMS which focuses on their in-house developed LPR and video analytic solutions.

In this profile we examine:

  • Company Overview
  • Transportation / Critical Infrastructure Focused Analytics
  • Deep Learning Analytics
  • 5 Software Levels
  • System Customization
  • Cloud VMS Development
  • Direct Driver Camera Support
  • Global Deployments
  • Company Growth
  • Company Outlook
