An intelligent video system, known as video threat detec- tion (VTD), is the future of video surveillance and perimeter security, says security solutions company C3 Shared Services (C3SS) business development director Brendon Cowley.

C3SS has just been awarded a contract to supply and implement the VTD systems, developed by intelligent video appliance company ioimage based in Israel, at an unspecified prison facility for Botswana Correctional Services (BCS), the company reports.

We are busy with phase one of a national project by the BCS to upgrade its security systems with the ioibox video encoding system," says Cowley.

C3SS is the authorised representative for Africa of the ioibox system that was initially developed by ioimage for the terrorist concerns and general security requirements of the Israeli defence force.

"The VTD system is militarygrade technology that is now made available to the commercial market," states Cowley.

It is a proactive system that allows for a more immediate response to security threats, " he says.

VTD systems are seen as a more advanced form of video motion detection (VMD) technology that has been the standard technology used in perimeter security systems for many years. The VTD system goes beyond this simple detection of movement, as it is not restricted by motion or the elements, including darkness, rainfall, birds and other elements.

Traditional VMD security systems give a video operator the mundane and flawed task of viewing multiple monitors to detect threats and perimeter intrusions, states Cowley.

The threat detection system of the ioibox is able to analyse and track threats and perimeter intrusion through its automated video encoder that uses high-end algorithms and video logic.

The technology requires only one video monitor, eliminating the need for complex training, as well as difficult set-up procedures and ongoing system adjustments, reports ioimage.

The technological advancement is able to verify the cause of alarms before an armed response is dispatched.
