, a leading supplier of integrated surveillance and security systems for specialised vertical markets, announced that it is participating in the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance's (PSIA)
Interoperability Reception at the ASIS International 56th Annual Seminar & Exhibits
in Dallas, Texas. Synectics' award winning Synergy™ video management software will host leading manufacturers' PSIA-enabled devices as part of a technology demonstration at the reception. Synectics will showcase the implementation of PSIA's newest specification for Video Analytics. The networking event, open to all industry stakeholders, will take place in Room A122 at the Dallas Convention Centre on Wednesday, October 13, 2010, at 4:00 p.m. "PSIA's ongoing efforts to create common integration standards between third party systems is the key to the future of our industry as a whole, and is perfectly aligned with Synectics' 25-year open standards philosophy. We will continue to invest in complimentary technologies and look forward to working closely with PSIA to make universal interoperability a practical reality,"
said John Katnic, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Synectics' North American division."Synectics is a long-time supporter of PSIA and its systems-based approach to the development of IP standards,"
said David Bunzel, Executive Director, PSIA. "The Synectics Synergy™ platform is an integral component of the first-ever demonstration of the PSIA Video Analytics specification alongside access control and IP video. This presentation marks a very exciting milestone for all PSIA members and industry stakeholders, and we applaud Synectics for its support of the event."
Synectics will utilise its Synergy platform to demonstrate integration between video management systems and a variety of IP devices including access control, video analytics, intrusion detection and IP cameras. The interoperability of these devices is possible through the adoption of PSIA specifications.
This event marks the first public demonstration of the new PSIA Video Analytics specification, which defines a standard way to receive, store and use analytic output. The open interface addresses event output including security, counting and health alerts, and object streaming metadata output. It also addresses foundational analytic output associated with tracked objects as well as classification, bounding box data, velocities and colour. SynergyPro serves as the host that ties together the various elements, acting as the gateway between third-party systems, and managing the notification and workflow associated with system events for operators. SynergyPro's compatibility with PSIA IP media devices also enables the presentation of corresponding video streams for situational awareness.
