ObjectVideo Supports International Weapons Security Teams

Sandia National Laboratories' International Nuclear Security Engineering department is using ObjectVideo's OV6 video analytics software for training purposes. The department works to reduce weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and terrorism threats to U.S. national security through international technical cooperation.

OV6 is an integral component of the Sandia training and demonstration system that highlights the security technologies required to protect critical resources and international weapons systems. The work is taking place at the Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM.

The system deployed at Sandia is a fully integrated intrusion detection, access control and video management security solution. ObjectVideo technology partner Open Roads Consulting, Inc. provides the video system backbone with its Video Image Control and Display System (VICADS™), a video-over-IP distribution and management platform.

"Our goal is to help the international community protect critical assets and reduce threats," said Dominic Martinez, manager of Sandia's International Nuclear Security Engineering department.

"ObjectVideo is very pleased that our new OV6 software was chosen as the video analytics component for this very important international security program," said Raul Fernandez, ObjectVideo chairman and CEO. "And we are proud our industry leadership has helped pave the way for technology innovations to play an increased role in making our world safer."

"We appreciate being able to partner with ObjectVideo on the integration of OV6 into VICADS," said Joseph Cardyn, vice president of Open Roads Consulting, Inc. "These combined technologies play a vital role in securing critical assets and protecting our national interest."

The OV6 Analytics Service™ is an Intel-based video analytics offering designed to enable a more turnkey-style implementation of one or more video analytics processes within network video recorders (NVR), video management systems (VMS) and other enterprise PC-based applications and hardware. OV6 utilizes the highly optimized ObjectVideo OnBoard® library for Intel®, enabling very high video analytic channel densities (up to 64 channels per processor, depending upon configuration) and more scalable video analytics-enabled solutions.
