Intel making a security play?

I haven't really seen much activity from Intel in physical security, other than a team-up with GE to get into medical monitoring and the fact that their chips are inevitably in servers used to store video footage, etc. They're not close to as active as, say TI, Stretch, or any number of other chip manufacturers, however. I mean, they've never sent me a press release. However, if this video is any indication, they've got a security and surveillance division primed and ready to go. I'm not sure if it indicates to me they really understand the market, but it's well produced: "Storage tapes are being replaced by digital media?" Ya think? And why do people always demonstrate LPR with stupid little matchbox cars in a well lit environment? What's the point? But it will be interesting to see what Intel has planned for the market.
