CNL Software, a provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, will be demonstrating the latest IPSecurityCenter PSIM capabilities at IFSEC International, including the use of drones to help increase situational awareness, integration, and management of vast estates of sensors, systems, and devices as well as a wide range of enhancements to enable large-scale federated systems to support critical national infrastructure. IPSecurityCenter The need for large scale CCTV coverage, both public and private has never been greater. At a time when almost all police and mass transit operations are facing reduced budgets for security operations, there has been an increased focus on the use of technology, using digital “eyes” as a force multiplier for officers and guards. These eyes on the street, work 24/7/365 with a low cost of maintenance and little intervention required and although they may not prevent attacks, they can assist greatly with investigations and the apprehension of offenders. “We have seen growing numbers of law enforcement agencies around the world working towards solutions comprising public/private co-operation as well as the use of body worn cameras, smart phones, drones and other technologies that give them fast access to relevant video”, explains Simon Jones, Sales Manager UK & Europe at CNL Software. “This increased requirement for CCTV brings with it the need to rapidly retrieve footage. At IFSEC we will be demonstrating how IPSecurityCenter enables the connection of vast numbers of new video technologies as well as legacy DVR/NVR/CCTV systems, from multiple different vendors, to retrieve video for distribution to the right people at the right time.” Integration of technologies IPSecurityCenter is deployed in some of the largest public security programs today, supporting the safety and security of citizens, visitors, commerce, and infrastructure. IPSecurityCenter allows the intelligent integration of a vast range of security and homeland defence technologies such as video surveillance, content analytics, intruder detection, access control, facial and license plate recognition, crowd monitoring, chemical, biological, radiological/nuclear and explosives detection, geospatial mapping, and asset tracking. CNL Software will be located on our technology partner stands: Milestone Systems: Stand number E750 and Promise Technology: Stand number D1200.

Essentra Security will fulfil the project in partnership with prime contractor SCC through the commoditised IT hardware and software (“CITHS”) framework, and Ultra ID manufacturer of Magicard ID card printers. The key objective of the contract is to refresh and modernise the estate of Smartcard printers used for authorising and issuing ID Smartcards to staff who need to access NHS systems that require this authentication. The contract will run over a three year period with two options to extend by 12 months. The Magicard Enduro+ custom printer has been tested during a thorough evaluation period, and successfully integrated into a new card management system developed by HSCIC as part of the Care Identity Services project. From April 2015, the printers will start to be rolled out across all regional health service establishments throughout England and Wales. "We are very pleased to have this opportunity to work with HSCIC and to be able to use our supply chain management expertise in order to contribute to the successful fulfilment of this prestigious project," said Simon Jones, General Manager of Essentra Security.
