Chubb Wins Global Objectvideo Supply Deal
Chubb selected ObjectVideo VEW(R), a video analysis software solution, after evaluating several intelligent video surveillance technologies. “It’s exciting to partner with a security giant like Chubb that can open doors worldwide. Chubb brings a wealth of knowledge, expertise and resources to the table,” said Brian Eckert, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ObjectVideo. ObjectVideo’s intelligent video surveillance algorithms, based on artificial intelligence called “computer vision,” run all objects in a camera’s view against threat-specific pre-programmed rules. When an object violates a rule, for example, a small boat loiters next to a ship, a bag is left unattended in an airport terminal or a shopper displays characteristics of shoplifting, the software alerts security personnel by phone, pager, email or an alert console. “After rigorous evaluation, ObjectVideo VEW proved to have sophisticated intelligent video surveillance capabilities and ease of deployment,” said Randy Krzak, Vice President of Marketing for Chubb Security North America. “The software’s ease-of-use for the end user was also an important factor in our decision to initiate an approved supplier arrangement with ObjectVideo.” Customers of ObjectVideo’s technology include the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection Bureau, the Department of Defense, the U.S. Air Force, the Department of Energy, ports including Jacksonville, Port Everglades and Mobile, and international airports including Memphis and Miami.
