Bosch Intelligent Video Analysis catches 2,300 "thieves" at ASIS 2008

  Attendees tried to "steal" a Bosch drill without being detected by the Bosch IP camera At the recent ASIS (American Society for Industrial Security) show in Atlanta, Georgia, more than 2,300 attendees took part in the Bosch IVA challenge, where they tried to "steal" a Bosch drill without being detected by the Bosch IP camera with built-in Intelligent Video Analysis.  People tried to use all sorts of props to fool the system-umbrellas, sheets of paper and even Bosch associates - but our camera caught the "thief" every time. ASIS estimated attendance at about 23,000, and the Bosch booth drew a lot of attention.  Attendees were thinking IP and checking out Bosch's extensive IP portfolio, including new Extreme CCTV products with built-in Bosch Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA).  Bosch also saw crowds around their intrusion, access control and camera display areas.  And of course, there was the usual "sea" of red Bosch bags throughout the show floor. Overall, it was a very successful event for both attendees and for Bosch.  Bosch will also be attending the upcoming ISC East in New York City in October.
