Israel-based NICE Systems announced the advancement of its Open Situation Management initiative for multi-sensor security deployments. As part of the initiative, NICE Situator will be interoperable with the latest version of DVTel’s Latitude network video management system (NVMS).
NICE Situator is a situation management software platform that addresses the security operations needs of seaports, airports, public transport, railways, city centers, military organizations, and enterprises. It already has more than 150 gateways to different security and safety systems, including video surveillance, communication devices, access control, intrusion sensors, fire and safety, geo-location, building management, Web feeds, and databases. NICE Situator enables automatic situation planning, response and analysis in real time, as well as post-incident reviews and investigations.
Combined with DVTel’s Latitude NVMS, NICE Situator can further enable organizations to employ a broad number of video surveillance technologies as a single, tightly integrated situational awareness solution. Events and behaviors that can be communicated between NICE Situator and DVTel’s Latitude NVMS include viewing of live and recorded video enhanced with metadata; integrated geographical information system (GIS) and video solution (geographical orientation-related events); video-related alarms to trigger a NICE Situator response; and zone management, among others.
“The cooperation between NICE and DVTel reflects our commitment to the market to continue to ensure the interoperability of NICE Situator with leading security, safety and management solutions,” said Israel Livnat, president, NICE Security Group. “By actively promoting the adoption of standards industry-wide NICE enables security organizations and system integrators to choose the components of a security solution that best meet their safety and security goals.”
