YARMOUTH, Maine—United Publications is pleased to announce the participants in the Lightning Round portion of the 6th Annual TechSec Solutions ( Selected by TechSec editorial programmer L. Samuel Pfeifle, the presenters will give a quick and intense insight into some of the newest technology to hit the security industry. Opening the second day of TechSec Solutions, to be held at the Delray Marriott, in Delray Beach, Fla., Feb. 1 and 2, the Lightning Round is the quickest way to be introduced to the most cutting-edge technology being installed to protect people and property today.

Participants include:

Dave Tynan, VP of sales at Avigilon, presenting on JPEG2000 Compression for HD stream management

Avigilon Control Center with High Definition Stream Management (HDSM) provides progressive compression used in storing and managing image transmission to disk. Within the end-to-end Avigilon HD surveillance system, images are compressed using the industry standard JPEG2000 format. JPEG2000 compression was introduced in 2000 as the evolution of JPEG compression and provides high-resolution compression more efficiently than conventional JPEG/MJPEG while also allowing for progressive decompression. Progressive image decompression is used by HDSM to allow the image data sent to a remote client to be scaled to the resolution required by the client monitor. Scalable transmission and HDSM allow you to efficiently transmit detailed regions of the image to greatly reduce the bandwidth required to view the image as well as the demands on the client workstation to decompress the video.

Charles Foley, Chairman and CEO, TimeSight Systems, presenting on Video LifeCycle Management

Video LifeCycle Management, or VLM, recognizes that there is essentially a “time value to video,” meaning that video is very valuable in the hours/days surrounding its initial capture, but that the video declines in value over time as it gets older, less relevant, and no untoward events have happened. Eventually, video is discarded as it costs more to retain than it's worth. With this new VLM technology, the video can be increasingly compressed over time as it ages, thereby freeing up massive amounts of storage.

Steve Russell, co-founder and chairman of 3VR Security, presenting on intelligent video search

The P-Series is a hybrid DVR/NVR built on 3VR’s searchable surveillance platform. The P-Series SmartRecorder makes all the rich features of 3VR's unique surveillance video search available to enterprises and provides new possibilities for large scale deployments, offering customers the ability to easily scale and network implementations supporting thousands of cameras.

Doug Marman, CTO of VideoIQ, presenting on cameras with on-board analytics and storage

The VideoIQ iCVR family of products offers a complete built-in DVR, bandwidth and storage control, automatically calibrating video analytics that nearly eliminate false alarms, and video management software. Further, the cameras integrate with many commonly used video management systems and central station automation platforms.
