VidSys And Activu Partner to Enhance Situational Awareness And Collaboration For Public Sector

Combination of VidSys PSIM software with Activu’s IP-based visualization and collaboration solution provides an open standards, network-based solution

VIENNA, VA ─ April 18, 2012 ─ 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 North American-based partnership with Activu® Corporation, the leading provider of IP-based visualization and collaboration solutions for mission-critical command and control center environments. By combining their complementary technologies, the partners provide a highly visual and comprehensive situational awareness and management solution for all security and safety stakeholders across the public sector. As a result, the speed and quality of collaborative decision making is significantly improved, driving optimal, proactive and timely responses to unfolding situations in order to safeguard lives, property and assets.

“Having the ability to turn critical information into intelligent decisions is critical for the public sector,” explained Ray Treat, head of business development, Activu. “By integrating our visualization and collaboration solution, which allows the easy, instantaneous sharing of practically any information between any number of locations and devices, with the VidSys PSIM software, we are able to provide public sector organizations with the enhanced ability to make smart assessments and respond together based on real-time intelligence and appropriate standard operating procedures.”

The combination of the VidSys PSIM software with Activu’s IP-based visualization and collaboration solution provides an open standards, network-based solution that allows seamless information sharing across agencies, such as police, fire and homeland security, for effective situational awareness, collaboration and management. Operator productivity is boosted with important, situation-driven information and response plans at their fingertips. Operating costs are also drastically lowered by leveraging an organization’s existing network, the Internet and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) servers and displays.

“For public sector organizations, security and safety situations require rapid decision making and response in order to protect the public while effectively managing whatever is unfolding,” said Mike O’Dea, vice president, business relationships, VidSys. “By partnering with Activu, we are arming responders with greater visibility and enhanced collaboration tools for effectively managing and responding to situations.”

Activu and VidSys will be exhibiting together during the upcoming Secured Cities Conference, taking place April 19 – 20, 2012 in Chicago. Stop by the VidSys booth to see the solution.
