OnSSI gets artsy
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 yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ingenuity Festival in Cleveland, Ohio. Entitled Ã¢â‚¬Å“Red Eyed Skywalkers,Ã¢â‚¬Â 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 ClevelandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Star Plaza.Ã‚Â The balloons were equipped with specially-designed video-surveillance cameras using OnSSIÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s networked video surveillance solution to transmit aerial images wirelessly to numerous large screens around the festival.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“OnSSI was very excited to be a part of this cultural phenomenon,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Gadi Piran, CEO, OnSSI. Ã¢â‚¬Å“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.Ã¢â‚¬Â
