Dedicated Micros - part of AD Group - is celebrating after receiving a prestigious Security Industry Award for its revolutionary capability that transforms NetVu Connected CCTV systems into an Emergency Messaging and Mass Notification System. The result, which saw Dedicated Micros come away with the Integrated Security Product of the Year title, was announced during a high profile ceremony held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel in conjunction with the IFSEC 2009 exhibition.

When deployed the award-winning Emergency Messaging System (EMS) provides authorities, police and end-users with unparalleled situational awareness and a two-way communication capability with specified assets should a major incident or a disaster occur; there is also the potential to generate revenue through a Mass Notification System (MNS) and, simultaneously, to continue to perform the surveillance tasks required to secure any facility.

The leading edge Emergency Messaging and Mass Notification System, developed by Dedicated Micros and parent company AD Group, takes advantage of the inherent ability of all NetVu Connected systems to support a local display output and communicate over an IP network. Normally this is used by an operator to view scenes from a CCTV system or, if positioned in a public area, to provide a sense of security that they are being monitored and to act as a deterrent to criminals. Now, with Dedicated Micros' Emergency Messaging and Mass Notification System, it is possible to offer the police, authorities and other users, through the already established CCTV infrastructure, unlike any other mass market system.

As all of these NetVu Connected systems are addressable, the solution allows operators to identify all units in a given geographical area and pinpoint them for precise, directed, communications. This could be to receive a message initiator through the use of a Graphic User Interface such as Pick-a-Point, a simple SMS or even an FM radio broadcast in the event of a disaster.

Said Mike Newton, founder of Dedicated Micros and CEO of AD Group: "We are delighted to have won the Integrated Security Product of the Year category in the Security Industry Awards held at IFSEC 2009. This is yet another accolade for our Emergency Messaging and Notification capability, which first came to prominence when it won the Best Software Product category in the IP in Security Innovation Awards, and reflects the genuinely groundbreaking nature of this solution."
