TimeSight Systems Announces Technology Alliance to Support Sentry360 FullSight Immersive Camera Technology

Complementary Technologies Exploit Multi-Megapixel Technology for Advanced Video Surveillance on Vastly Reduced Storage/Server Infrastructure for Better Security and Information

MT. LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2011) - TimeSight Systems, the industry leader in video lifecycle management (VLM) for video surveillance, and Sentry360, a leading developer of advanced multi-megapixel surveillance cameras, today announced a technology alliance leveraging two important emerging technologies for the IP video surveillance industry.

Industry reports indicate that the video surveillance industry is seeing continued growth, with the number of installed cameras at over 100 million worldwide and climbing annually. According to users, two of most significant problems associated with traditional video surveillance installations are ensuring the exact target area for adequate video coverage in the event of incidents, coupled with the rising cost of storing that video data as cameras continue to increase in both number and in resolution. Today's collaboration between two security technology companies in the IP video space addresses both of these issues by combining industry-leading fully immersive video with video lifecycle management to allow enterprise-class systems to not only catch all relevant video, but to also retain that video through a complete and useful lifecycle to enable true return on investment (ROI).

The hallmark of this alliance is the delivery of scalable ROI for digital surveillance. Sentry360's multi-megapixel 360-degree immersive imaging and directional cameras actually reduce the amount of cameras needed to cover a given environment, thereby reducing both cost and complexity. Complementing this is the TimeSight video lifecycle management technology, which provides the ability to actually shrink stored data over time, according to business rules, to allow for greater capture and retention of high resolution video on far less bandwidth and storage requirements.

"This alliance leverages the two key technologies that deliver exactly what enterprise users are demanding -- better video and better use of that video," remarks Charles Foley, CEO of TimeSight Systems. "They get wider coverage, better video, and longer retention, all with fewer cameras, fewer storage servers, and less overall cost."

"Today marks a giant step toward resolving these burgeoning issues while providing a lower cost of ownership to the end-user," remarks Thomas Carnevale, CEO of Sentry360. "The combination of our technologies brings a heavy return on investment to mission critical security projects. Sentry360's multi-megapixel 360-degree immersive imaging and directional cameras together with TimeSight System's Video Surveillance Appliances, featuring video lifecycle management, combine to create a next generation, high resolution efficient video evidence collection platform."

TimeSight and Sentry360 will be demonstrating their synergistic technologies at the upcoming ISC Solutions event at the Javits Center in New York City on November 2-3, at Booth 1822.
