VidSys and Pro2Serve Partner to Provide State of the Art Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) Solution for Public Safety Organizations

Joint Solution Integrates Situation Management With Mapping and Tracking Mobile Safety Personnel With Motorola's Wireless Broadband Technology for Faster Response to Real-Time Emergencies

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - VidSys, the leading provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software that allows organizations to resolve business and security situations in real time, today announced its strategic partnership with Pro2Serve, a technical and engineering services firm dedicated to providing critical infrastructure engineering services in support of our Nation's security. Pro2Serve has developed a security management solution leveraging VidSys' PSIM software that will offer a single visual application of all relevant security data to provide users with the right information on the right display system at the right time.

The joint solution will combine Pro2Serve's Systems Integration Engine (PSIE), which provides real-time fusion of physical security sensors and location information with VidSys' PSIM software including the VidShield and RiskShield video and situation management applications. The solution leverages Project 25 LMR radio systems and wireless broadband technology to track mobile personnel and integrate their presence information with the RiskShield situation management system. The resulting system combines RiskShield's management of video devices, license plate or identification systems, radar targets (red force tracking), blue force locations and other critical information to allow central and distributed personnel to share information and collaborate around resolving situations.

"By allowing information sharing across multiple locations, public safety organizations have better situational awareness and can make smarter decisions in real time as security events unfold," said David Fowler, senior vice president, Marketing and Product Development, at VidSys. "Through our partnership with Pro2Serve, we're enabling users, regardless of their location, to send and receive information from their mobile devices for improved situation management and decision making and greater safety for first responders."

VidSys' PSIM software creates a common operating picture that seamlessly communicates with numerous video and physical security systems for rapid situational awareness, management and real-time resolution. VidShield is a multi-vendor video management application that facilitates centralized utilization and management of deployed video assets and the selective presentation of live and recorded video streams. RiskShield, the master control point in the VidSys PSIM system, enables integrated situation management. Situations are identified, analyzed and prioritized automatically and then all appropriate information is presented to the operator in an integrated display.

"The VidSys platform provides an integrated display system that seamlessly communicates with numerous security devices and systems," explained Mike Berta, Director Network/Wireless Solutions, Pro2Serve. "Coupled with our technology's comprehensive integration capabilities, VidSys provides the best solution for force protection, physical security information management and public safety."

The combined solution is designed for Department of Defense, Department of Energy and other federal agencies along with state and local public safety organizations, as well as state and local government organizations looking to proactively resolve security-related or emergency situations with real-time data aggregated from multiple systems.
