Latest Advances In Smart Security Systems Offers Greater Degrees Of Physical Security & Actionable Intelligence
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announced the launch of its MOBOTIX Intelligent Video Security Solution. Designed to bridge the gap between physical and IT security practices, MOBOTIX offers innovative features that provide businesses with actionable information that go well beyond outdated CCTV (closed-circuit television) systems.
The MOBOTIX Intelligent Video Security Solution is comprised of three distinct components and systems - all designed to work in unison in providing a high level of physical security monitoring and network analysis services.
Similar to a SMART phone, MOBOTIX camera systems feature multiple on-board sensors, programmable microprocessors, a decentralized architecture, and IoT technology, all of which can be customized to meet the specific needs of any business or public facility. Customers find that the German-built, MOBOTIX product line has unparalleled features that enable them to build the best configuration of cameras and services to fit the needs of their specific location.
The video link from MOBOTIX cameras is fed, real time, 24/7, to Monitor America, one of the most advanced central monitoring stations in the country. Monitor America is led by a senior management team experienced and trained in law enforcement, counter terrorism and advanced IT security measures.
Completing the MOBOTIX solution is the Video Network Analysis for Intelligent IP Video Systems provided by Viakoo, an Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) company in Mountain View, California. As a video network analysis solution, its function is to monitor and identify any hardware issues before there is a failure of the system. This allows for users to stay on top of potential problems and quickly recover from critical component failures.
“We are taking a much more holistic approach to security with the launch of MOBOTIX,” says Hampton Hale, Director, Konica Minolta Security Services. “The potential applications for this technology are limitless; not only for businesses, but also schools, transportation centers, hotels, museums and hospitals, for example.”
“MOBOTIX combines the best features of a software company with in-house hardware development of digital, high-resolution, network-based video security solutions,” said Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning. “With MOBOTIX, we are offering our customers one more way they can protect their operations and their work environment with the addition of physical security solutions to our portfolio.” Kern added.
