 MATE Adds Powerful Video Analytics to Hirsch's Velocity System

MATE-Intelligent Video, a technology leader in intelligent video surveillance systems and Hirsch Electronics - a leading provider of security management systems -  recently announced the completion and availability of their integration empowering the award-winning Velocity™ Security Management System with MATE's Behavior Watch™ video content analysis capabilities to deliver intelligent surveillance and physical security convergence.
Behavior Watch turns nearly any camera - IP or analogue - into an intelligent sensor able to detect intrusion, suspicious objects (e.g., backpack), removed objects (e.g., a painting), and undesirable behavior (e.g., loitering).  The server-based Behavior Watch sends real-time alarms and alerts to the Velocity Security Management System which performs the appropriate actions such as notifying guards and authorities, executing pre-programmed actions (e.g., lock-down, sirens, etc.), and logging event details.

"The integration of Hirsch's Velocity with MATE's advanced video analytics not only enhances both parties' offerings and opens new channels, but it also provides the market with a greatly enhanced security surveillance solution," said John Szczygiel, president of MATE.
MATE's powerful video analytics detection features, combined with Hirsch's access control, alarm monitoring, badging, smart cards, biometrics and now intelligent video, provides a truly converged security solution with multiple end-user benefits including:

  • Enhanced security from advanced behavior recognition capabilities;
  • Operational efficiency from automated video surveillance and proactive event detection;
  • Extension of existing investments by leveraging existing infrastructure and legacy equipment; as an example, MATE's open architecture platform allows American Dynamics® Intellex® users to pull video directly from the Intellex digital video recorder (DVR) and send tagged alarms with snapshots to the Velocity system which controls and manages the Intellex DVR.

"Systems interoperability is the key factor for a successful deployment and operation of different technologies in a security project. The Velocity platform allows it to happen, and MATE's open architecture and intuitive software fits well into the overall system," says John Coker, director of sales for Hirsch.
