One digital eye on ports

Saturday, 22 January, 2005

ADT has announced it will become the official Australian partner with ObjectVideo, a leader in intelligent video surveillance software.

"With focus now intensified on homeland security, ADT is aware of the importance in securing our ports, borders and critical infrastructure," said Jordon Peters, ADT's Integrated Systems manager. "With this revolutionary new software, developed by US military research scientists, port security personnel can create virtual perimeters across land and water by simply drawing a video tripwire directly on a computer snapshot of the camera's view.

"The software is currently deployed across the US to protect against terrorism and other threats and to secure critical infrastructure such as airports, seaports, oil refineries, chemical and nuclear plants and public water supply facilities," Peters said.

Organisations in the US currently utilising this technology include the Department of Homeland Security's US Customs and Border Protection Bureau, the Department of Defence, the US Air Force, the US Navy and a variety of private sector businesses.
