The video intelligence company 3VR says it is opening up its Video Intelligence Platform (VIP) for integration with select hardware partners including Intransa, the physical security infrastructure and services company.
The partnership with Intransa marks the first implementation of 3VR’s VIP with a third-party hardware provider, 3VR says. Prior to the agreement with Intransa, 3VR VIP’s video management software (VMS) has only been available for use with its own network video recorders (NVRs) and hybrid NVRs.
Intransa customers now can augment their existing hardware infrastructure with 3VR’s VMS suite of forensic search and analytics solutions to solve crimes faster, reap significant business intelligence from their video assets and reduce problems associated with information technology (IT) integration, the company says.
However, 3VR already has certified partnerships with leading camera manufacturers, data integration partners such as access control and analytic developers. “We wanted to give our customers more choices and flexibility in how they deploy our software,” said Al Shipp, 3VR’s CEO. “By opening up our software platform to premium select hardware vendors such as Intransa, we allow 3VR customers to optimize their network security infrastructure while still taking advantage of 3VR’s powerful forensic search engine, case management, and wide range of video analytics.”
In addition, Intransa customers will now be able to leverage 3VR’s VMS without the need for additional hardware purchases, according to Bud Broomhead, Intransa’s CEO. “Our certified partnership with 3VR enables us to combine our strengths to create a powerful, sophisticated solution that addresses a wide range of project needs, and ultimately offer greater value to our integrators and end users,” he said.
3VR offers several built-in and premium applications that allow users to manage and bolster the performance of their video assets (mix and match analog, IP, megapixel and pan/tilt/zoom cameras) across thousands of sites.
