Maxxess Systems, a globally recognised company in event response management and collaboration systems, is pleased to announce their partnership with Digital Watchdog, an industry renowned company in digital recorders and surveillance management systems, to deliver a complete video surveillance solution to help manage security threats. Unlike stand-alone systems for video management, this new complete solution helps organisations not only detect security threats in real time, but also to trigger immediate automated security system protocols and then follow through by taking appropriate actions, in unity with their policies and tracking results to completion. Maxxess Systems – Digital Watchdog partnership “We pride ourselves in being able to utilise existing products the customer already has whenever possible.” said Nancy Islas, President of Maxxess Systems, adding “This new complete solution integrates the latest video surveillance technology with our security management system that provides a single user interface for all video to guide managers as they follow through to ensure the safety and security of their staff and visitors.” “We are excited to welcome Maxxess Systems as a Technology Partner into the DW Spectrum ecosystem,” said Patrick Kelly, Director of IP Solutions, Digital Watchdog, adding “This integration combines the best of two leading platforms, in the physical security space, to create a powerful solution for users by increasing situational awareness and coordinating their security.” Cutting-edge video surveillance system This unique new solution brings together two key elements to create the complete solution This unique new solution brings together two key elements to create a complete solution. The first is the easy, cutting-edge video surveillance system from Digital Watchdog that is designed to monitor operations more efficiently. This powerful video technology is perfect for lobbies, hallways, and other key access points. When an unusual event is detected, an alert is set to the second key element of the system – the eFusion unified security management platform from Maxxess Systems. eFusion unified security management platform The eFusion system is integrated with the video management system and can take immediate action programmed to be in alignment with company policies. For example, the system can associate an alarm event to specific cameras. If a door is forced open, the system can be set up to call cameras from the Digital Watchdog so that the security team can validate whether or not there was a break in. Technology integration This integration allows customers to connect to different video systems simultaneously providing a single user interface. It is clear that the need for video surveillance will continue into the future. This complete solution offers many advantages over stand-alone video surveillance systems, including: The ability to send the alarm event and video feed to the desktop, and/or the web app of the eFusion system, making it accessible to anyone with authorised access instantly. Allows for centralisation of multiple operations, which results in more effective and efficient security. Designed to enhance the way the team interacts with systems, improve response times and helps make video actionable. Provides an easy-to-use user interface, which reduces the amount of time spent training on various systems and how they work together. Security alerts can be routed to the responsible departments or people automatically and without delay. And, the eFusion solution logs all actions for audit, review, or similar purposes.
Calipsa, a globally renowned provider of deep-learning powered video analytics for false alarm reduction, and Digital Watchdog (DW), the industry major company in digital recorders, surveillance cameras and related management software, have integrated Calipsa's false alarm filtering analytics with DW's Spectrum IPVMS video management platform. False alarm reduction software Calipsa's false alarm reduction software is compatible with all Spectrum cameras and is quick and easy to deploy with no hardware required. Once an alarm is triggered on a connected camera, Spectrum servers send video to a Calipsa cloud-based server where algorithms look for human and vehicle movement, before returning genuine alarms and filtering out those that are false. The process takes about a second to complete. Calipsa's software filters out false alarms with a 99.5% accuracy rate. Integration with surveillance cameras “The integration of Calipsa's false alarm reduction software is another example of DW's commitment to provide its customers with the enhanced security tools required to protect people and assets”, said Brian Baker, Chief Revenue Officer, Calipsa. “Without the distraction of false alarms, command center operators may concentrate on genuine alerts, making them more effective and efficient while reducing their event response times,” said Brian, adding “Also, Calipsa's cloud-based platform provides easy and quick remote installation of upgrades and is easily scalable as end users grow their DW video systems.” Compatible with Spectrum video management platform The Calipsa false alarm reduction platform's integration is a valuable enhancement for users of the Spectrum VMS" Patrick Kelly, Director of IP Sales for Digital Watchdog (DW), said “The Calipsa false alarm reduction platform's integration is a valuable enhancement for users of the Spectrum video management platform (VMS).” “The virtual elimination of false alarms removes a major nuisance for many enterprise video systems," he said. "Our customers now have easy access to what we consider the leading deep-learning powered false alarm reduction system.” DW Spectrum IPVMS DW Spectrum IPVMS is an easy-to-use, cutting-edge approach to video surveillance, addressing the primary limitations of managing enterprise-level HD video while offering the lowest total cost of deployment and ownership on the market. DW Spectrum IPVMS now includes DW Cloud to manage all systems and users from a simple webpage. Calipsa software also includes a platform dashboard enabling monitoring operators to detect idle cameras that may need replacement or repositioning.
