—  VisionAlert(TM): The video content analysis solution that

        offers “motion-on-motion” detection capabilities for both

        fixed and pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras. By electronically

        stabilizing video images and subtracting background motion,

        VisionAlert transforms video cameras into intelligent         security

        sensors that spot perimeter breaches and abandoned or

        loitering objects, and track moving targets – even in low

        light or bad weather conditions.

    —  Hawk(TM): An integrated, scaleable, rules-based security

        sensor management platform that creates a unified,

        multi-dimensional view of multiple alarm sensor types and

        video feeds. Hawk is optimized for medium-to-large-           scale wide area surveillance.

    —  Video Flashlight(TM): For video-intensive facilities, Video

        Flashlight has the ability to “warp and stitch” multiple,

        real-time video streams into a single, three-dimensional        view.

        The system allows security forces to  intuitively          grasp spatial relationships–the previously missing “context” that is critical to understanding the nature of the threat and

directing the response
