OnSSI gets artsy

Monday, September 1, 2008

SUFFERN, N.Y.--On-Net Surveillance Systems, a maker of open architecture intelligent IP-based video surveillance software solutions, was selected to participate in an avant-garde art event at this year’s Ingenuity Festival in Cleveland, Ohio. Entitled “Red Eyed Skywalkers,” and created by new media artist Jenny Marketou, the event sent 100 red, five-foot diameter meteorological balloons skyward to create a floating canopy over Cleveland’s Star Plaza. The balloons were equipped with specially-designed video-surveillance cameras using OnSSI’s networked video surveillance solution to transmit aerial images wirelessly to numerous large screens around the festival.

“OnSSI was very excited to be a part of this cultural phenomenon,” said Gadi Piran, CEO, OnSSI. “Since we typically keep our focus on serious technology development in the realm of IP video surveillance, it was enjoyable to be able to be involved with a project that has evolved from a fully artistic point of view.”
