OPTEX Announces Integration With Exacq Technologies for Minimizing Video False Alarms
Otsu, Japan, September 18, 2013— OPTEX Co. LTD, a leading manufacturer of security infrared and laser technology, announced today the integration of their sensors and detectors with the exacqVision Video Management System (VMS) from Exacq Technologies. The result will minimize video false alarms for outdoor perimeter applications.
Optex detection products are integrated into the exacqVision Professional and Enterprise VMS software (version 4.6 or later).
Integrated OPTEX products include:
- Redscan Laser-Scan Detectors that identify moving objects’ size, speed, and distance from the detector. The device processes that information with a unique algorithm, resulting in a highly reliable detection system with minimal false alarms.
- PIE-1 POE Alarm IP Encoder, when used with Redwall SIP series passive infrared and Redbeam photo electric detectors, converts alarm signals to an IP signal sent to the exacqVision client. The POE functionality also powers OPTEX devices.
“Combining OPTEX sensor and detector technology with exacqVision will provide an efficient systems integration solution for users who want to effectively respond to security alarms and events with video verification,” says Ryosuke Miwa, Optex’s general manager of global sales and marketing. “OPTEX sensors and detectors actively reduce video driven false alarms. As a result, they can eliminate the need for costly responses by personnel.” “Along with intrusion detection, asset management and other key business systems, our customers can now merge OPTEX sensor and detector technology within the exacqVision VMS and benefit from their efficient, multiple security applications” notes Tom Buckley, Vice President, Sales and Marketing Exacq Technologies.
The exacqVision integration will be part of the OPTEX product showcase, booth 1329, at the ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits, Chicago, IL September 24-27th. In addition, the exacqVision VMS is featured in the Exacq booth (4101) as well as other integration partner booths throughout the exhibition.
