VideoIQ Wins 2009 Best Deployment Scenario Award

Info Security Products Guide Selects Company for Video Surveillance Category

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2009) - ASIS 2009 -- VideoIQ, the inventor of the world's first and only intelligent surveillance camera with a built-in DVR, announced today that it is the winner of the 2009 Best Deployment Scenario Awards in the video surveillance category. The award was presented by Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading publication on security-related products and technologies.

VideoIQ was chosen for its groundbreaking deployment of the VideoIQ iCVR at customer site Champions Auto Ferry which provides transportation across the St. Clair River to and from Harsens Island, Mich. Solutions integrator Data Consultants recommended the iCVR to Champions and was instrumental in its deployment.

Champions needed an intelligent video surveillance solution that would help increase safety and security aboard its ferries and provide a digital record of activities which would serve as a reliable backup if incidents needed further examination or investigation. Champions needed a video surveillance system for another crucial reason: because of Harsens Island's proximity to the Canadian border, there is the risk that some passengers could include those seeking illegal entry into the United States. Being able to capture the images of everyone traveling on the boats and provide this footage to the authorities if needed was of particular importance to Champions.

The iCVR had everything Champions was looking for in an intelligent video surveillance solution, including minimal bandwidth and storage requirements and the ability to operate on Champion's wireless mesh network even in a harsh maritime environment. Because the iCVR stores all video at the edge and the analytics are performed in the camera itself, it was possible for Champions to have cameras on both mainland Michigan and Harsens Island while providing room for growth for additional cameras and systems on the wireless network. Most importantly, the iCVR provided Champions with increased security and proactive protection.

"Info Security Products Guide's recognition of VideoIQ's success at Champions Auto Ferry is powerful validation of the iCVR's revolutionary surveillance benefits," said Scott Schnell, president and CEO, VideoIQ. "We are excited to have been able to partner with Data Consultants and provide an effective, versatile and affordable solution to meet the customer's needs, and create a showplace where other customers can get a clear idea of what is possible."

"The most powerful message security vendors can ever give to prove their capabilities and continued commitment in solving customer's security needs is through successful deployments," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Info Security Products Guide. "VideoIQ's successful deployment at Champions Auto Ferry helped solve their customer's unique challenges, while providing them with an advanced, ground-breaking video surveillance solution."

Driven by next-generation analytics, the VideoIQ iCVR combines automated event detection, a built-in DVR and integrated video management into a single solution -- delivering real-time threat detection and high quality video recording while solving the bandwidth and storage problems of traditional IP camera systems.
