Last year, an ADT home security customer noticed an unfamiliar email address connected to her home security account, a professionally monitored system that included cameras and other devices inside her home.

New Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions In-car Video System Takes Mobile Video Recording Technology Into the Future
| #TpromoCom | Advanced Video Processor Speeds Deployment and Streamlines Video Reviewing and Sharing https://bit.ly/3gfdqWW

Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions is excited to announce their new in-car video (ICV4000) system featuring a powerful new video processing unit (VPU4000). With high-speed processing, wireless networking, new security features, improved image quality and easier deployment, the new Panasonic i-PRO ICV4000 system takes in-car video technology into the future.

“Panasonic i-PRO in-car video systems for law enforcement and professional security applications have a well-deserved reputation for exceptional reliability and video quality,” said David O’Connor, Director, Public Safety Division, Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corp. of America. “Building from that legacy and our extensive experience in professional video recording technology, the ICV4000 is a next-generation in-car video evidence capture solution with higher performance, improved security, and simplified installation.”

The new ICV4000 employs the MPEG-4 recording format, eliminating the need for proprietary media devices and making it easier to share video and audio content with other applications. By eliminating the conversion processes and workflows associated with proprietary video formats, the ICV4000 provides a more streamlined approach to video reviewing and sharing.

As with all evidence-capture technology, securing the integrity of video and audio data is a top priority. The ICV4000 uses new and improved security features such as SSD drive lock and AES/256 data encryption at rest, which ensure that evidence data is completely secure and cannot be accessed or forcibly removed by unauthorized parties.

With several options for front-end cameras, the ICV4000 offers industry leading full 1080p HD recording along with a wider field of view and multiple optical/digital zoom levels. This provides users with superior video evidence quality and ensures that every detail is clearly captured, even under challenging conditions.

The ICV4000 incorporates embedded Bluetooth (BLE) and two wireless LAN modules to support seamless integration with Panasonic i-PRO’s BWC4000. Additionally, the ICV4000 features a consolidated system design that combines multiple system features, which results in reduced vehicle installation time and easier deployment and usability.

With higher performance, superior image quality and the open standard MPEG-4 recording format, the new Panasonic i-PRO ICV4000 system is the ideal choice for virtually every in-car video system application.

Openpath Offers Card Reader with Camera -- Improves Security at the Door

#Openpath Offers Card Reader with #Camera -- Improves #Security at the Door | #TpromoCom #SSI #AccessControl | New Pro Series Video Readers Boast Sleek Design, High-Quality Video, an Abundance of Features and Universal Compatibility (prnewswire). https://bit.ly/3dNNjVP

Openpath, a leader in touchless, modern access control and workplace safety automation, today announces new Pro Series Video Readers with sleek hardware, touchless unlock, remote management capabilities and high-quality video to enhance security, starting right at the door.

By adding a camera right on the reader, Openpath's Video Reader Pro attaches visual verification to every access event from the vantage point of exactly where the event occurred; at the door. Combining video with access logs gives security teams the full story of events throughout the day and allows them to see what's happening outside the entrance in real-time, plus up to 180 days of cloud storage viewable in the Openpath mobile app for historical access. The high-quality video feed is also optimized for mobile with remote features on any device, allowing security administrators to quickly and easily take the necessary actions, such as granting remote guest access, activating Lockdown capabilities, diagnosing automated alerts, or informing on-site personnel to a specific situation that may require immediate attention.

Openpath's cloud-based Video Readers provide enterprise-grade security with double encryption and are built on open standards software for unlimited flexibility, which leaves capacity to run additional apps and rich integrations like facial authentication in the future. Powered by Openpath's security platform, the Pro Series Video Readers are ideal for organizations who want a touchless, convenient, secure security solution with visual verification to enhance safety, and remote management capabilities for hybrid and remote employees. It serves as an excellent compliment to any existing video surveillance system, offering a close-up, eye-level view of what is happening right at the front door or can work in isolation, offering video footage context to any motion activated or access event as users are coming or going.

Carrying on the award-winning design legacy of Openpath's original flagship readers, the new Video Readers have a sleek, modern look that compliments and elevates any building aesthetic. The unparalleled "Wave To Unlock" user experience Openpath provides is designed to reduce friction in the workplace and is unlike anything else on the market, which has contributed significantly to Openpath's explosive growth over recent years. The hardware fits easily on any door frame and with its multiple mounting options, it can be angled for optimum video placement and is weather-proofed for both indoor and outdoor requirements.

"As a long time partner of Openpath, we continue to be impressed with the level of innovation and market disruption they deliver. Their new Pro Series of Video Readers is proof positive that Openpath is the disruptor in the Access Control market and we at Lincoln Property Company are excited to add this new capability to our buildings," said Eric Roseman, Vice President of Innovation & Technology, Lincoln Property Company.

"Very recently, we've witnessed an exciting wave of technology and investment hitting the commercial security industry and setting new standards for innovation, safety and user experience," said Dayann Charles, Industry Analyst at Verdantix. "User-centric solution vendors such as Openpath are reinventing the security market, propelling a surge of functional innovations which continue to drive up the value delivered by security and access control building solutions. Openpath's new card reader offering with a built-in camera, for installation at entry doors, is another indicator of this perpetual innovation in this space, with Openpath in the leading pack."

"The way that we use and occupy commercial buildings and office spaces has changed significantly in recent years, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach to security anymore. With the introduction of our new Pro Series Video Readers, we're excited to add video to the many solutions we offer to help organizations of all types and sizes strengthen their security posture for the New Normal and whatever comes next," said James Segil, President and Co-Founder of Openpath.
