Apprion Announces Next Generation Intelligent Video With Advanced Archiving and Search

ION Video R3 Extends Leading Real-Time Video Analysis Application With Optimized Video Archiving, Intelligent Search and Carousel Monitoring

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) -  Apprion, the leader in industrial wireless application networks, today announced the release of the ION Video R3 Application. ION Video is the only video monitoring application specifically designed to address the critical safety, security, compliance and operational requirements of manufacturing and industrial facilities. This third release of ION Video extends this leadership through new features including optimized archiving, intelligent search, and customizable carousel monitoring to view up to 16 different cameras in one dashboard. 

ION Video analyzes motion, tracks, counts, and identifies objects, and delivers video intelligence from live video streams by performing real-time video analytics. The ION Video system makes this intelligence actionable by issuing alerts to appropriate security, safety, and operational personnel, and archiving video for intelligent search, event correlation, and performance auditing. 

As part of Apprion's ION System, ION Video provides seamless integration with existing safety, security, and operational applications -- along with integrated archiving, storage, and management services. Designed to be implemented at 25% of the cost of competing systems, ION Video enables plants to be equipped with an advanced, industrial-quality, low-cost video solution. 

"The use of video is expanding rapidly in the process manufacturing industries because applications such as Apprion's ION Video address the greater application and environmental demands of facilities such as petrochemical refineries, power plants, and paper mills," commented Harry Forbes of ARC Advisory Group.

New features of ION Video R3 include:

  • Optimized Archiving - Store all events and activity to be search ready -- channels and video are indexed and readily available instantaneously. 
  • Intelligent Search - Search on key visual attributes captured in the video itself.
  • Carousel Monitoring - Stream video from multiple cameras to an integrated dashboard.

"Intelligent Video Search, especially in the case of safety and security breaches, is time critical. When an incident happens, there is enormous pressure on security professionals to quickly reconstruct events from archived video," said Doug Donzelli, Apprion CEO. "Currently, security professionals go through time-consuming manual review of archived video to do this. ION Video R3 provides an automated way to quickly search through video for motion or activity, object by size, color, speed and direction of motion."

ION Video's Intelligent Search and Optimized Archiving enables security professionals to rapidly search for past incidents from archived video and respond to incidents in a timely manner. Security professionals can search across multiple cameras to reconstruct past events or incidents and view all cameras in one integrated dashboard for immediate action. ION Video's new features and low price point per camera equips plant managers with an affordable solution to address the inherent problems of most processing facilities for safety, security and operations. Plus, by providing visibility into hazardous and unmanned areas, ION Video R3 enables security professionals to cost-effectively comply with safety regulations and security requirements.

ION Video is integrated with the Apprion IONosphere as part of Apprion's ION System. This integration allows real-time video analytics to be combined with other ION applications such as ION Condition Monitoring and/or ION Communications to create individualized, operational dashboards customized to the individual's role in the plant.
