Vidsys Launches New Release of Vidsys Enterprise 2019

New capabilities include synchronized playback, mobile-ready reporting, and HA mode installer

VIENNA, Va.–Vidsys today announced the release of its latest Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) software platform, Vidsys Enterprise 2019 Release 1.0, enhancing the operator experience through the addition of the Synchronized Playback Studio. This capability enables simple retrospective incident investigation by synchronizing the playback of an unlimited number of video streams from a mixture of sources. Operators can employ fast forward/rewind speeds to scan through long periods of time and over large areas to identify the cause of an incident or situation.

This release adds multiple new reports available within Enterprise Business Intelligence (EBI) and delivers these via the existing Vidsys HTML5 Mobile client. All operators may now customize the Vidsys working environment to suit their individual display preferences using the new Font Scaling capability. 2019 R1.0 also provides a streamlined approach to deploying Vidsys in High Availability (HA) mode on select 3rd party environments. This release also shows Vidsys’ continued commitment and support to the EMEA region with the introduction of full Arabic translations for operator and administrator.

“Users will now be able to review and analyze multiple data feeds, including video perfectly synchronized to quickly identify specific incidents, their causes, and take proper action for resolution,” said Ted Kim, VP of Product Management of Vidsys. “The latest product launch at GSX signifies our continued commitment and investment in supporting the challenging and ever-changing needs of our loyal customers.”

3 Trends We Expect to See at GSX 2018

With the Global Security Exchange (GSX) Conference a few days away, Vidsys is excited to be an active part of the many presentations, demos and the conversations around innovation in the security space.

After 63 years as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, the newly rebranded GSX is the security industry’s flagship event. The organization expects to attract 550 exhibitors and more than 20,000 operational and cybersecurity professionals from all over the globe.

The exhibit hall will be transformed into a learning lab environment featuring thousands of security products, technologies, and service solutions, as well as immersive learning opportunities designed to connect the current threat landscape, as well as emerging risks, with leading solutions available in the marketplace.

The Xcelerated Exchange Stage, where Vidsys Founder and CEO James Chong will speak, provides a forum for the critical discussions that need to take place between practitioners and solution providers to proactively address the current and future security landscape.

As we approach the conference, here are 3 top trends we expect to see at GSX this year.

Drones Take Video Surveillance to the Next Level – Drones, formally known as Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), are changing the face of security surveillance. New cameras, sensors and safety technology, in addition to a workable regulatory environment, make drones are not only practical but the preferred method for large venue surveillance.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Takes Center Stage – Next-generation AI and video analytics technology are going to be center-stage at GSX. AI technology innovation will help further expand the application and use of AI and video analytics to solve real-world challenges. AI can help facilitate sophisticated risk or incident detection and automatic notification, which can support an overall security program immensely.

Physical and Cyber Security Converging – In 2018, convergence is finally being received and understood as a critical element of security as being part of a larger risk management area. This includes cybersecurity, logical security, merging with physical and electronic security when all combined creates a converged security solution. As we now are seeing, organizational convergence where CSOs are in charge of both physical and cyber security, and technologies in the industry. We believe that this is an exciting movement towards where the future of the Internet of Things (IoT is happening)

Looking Ahead To GSX 2018

We’re excited for another exciting conference with ASIS at the newly re-branded Global Security Exchange (GSX) Conference this year!

Vidsys will be partnering with Micro Focus to bring back the Intelligent Global Security Operations Center (GSOC), providing conference attendees with hands-on demonstrations and an interactive experience.

Additionally, GSX has selected our CEO James Chong to speak about Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) on the Xcelerated Exchange Stage, where he will share how the market is shifting and PSIM is evolving to the future of security – CSIM.

Interested in where we’ll be during GSX? Read on to find out about our presence at this newly re-branded show!

Intelligent GSOC hosted by Vidsys with Micro Focus

September 25-27, Booth 1171

Networked systems and applied technologies are presenting security management professionals with rising levels of information outputs and data, which provides unparalleled levels of insight for any number of commercial, industrial and government users. Unfortunately, these systems also present major security vulnerabilities. Their networked capabilities means that it has a higher need for better understanding and vigilance when it comes to information security.

To address these challenges, Micro Focus and Vidsys have jointly developed a solution – the Intelligent Global Security Operations Center (GSOC).

When visiting the Intelligent GSOC at booth 1171, GSX attendees will learn to accelerate effective decisions and actions by enabling:

  • Real-time processing of data that is diverse in format and in origin
  • Automated analysis to identify issues or potential threats
  • Streamlined workflow for alerts and responses
  • Open standards connectivity to 3rd party systems for easy integration

CSIM Keynote featuring Vidsys CEO James Chong

September 25 at 11 a.m. PDT, GSX Show Floor

As part of the Xcelerated Exchange Stage on the GSX show floor, our CEO and founder James Chong will be speaking about the rise of CSIM. The goal of the Xcelerated Exchange Stage is to foster critical conversations, specifically between security practitioners and representatives of the manufacturer and supplier community.

Guests can expect to hear James to discuss the evolution of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) to CSIM. CSIM extends software abilities beyond physical security by capturing and correlating data from multiple IT-security systems and information management systems. This advanced platform can be leveraged to support Smart City and IoT applications, in addition to a variety of use cases such as supply-chain systems, building management, logistics management, and manufacturing. These capabilities go beyond security and risk management by offering insights that can drive intelligent business decisions.
