Visual Defence Introduces Command and Control Centre 2.0

    Enhanced Features Provide Increased Ability to Mitigate and Control Risk
    of Security Threats

    RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, April 11 /CNW/ -- Visual Defence Inc. (LSE: VDI),
the security convergence company, today announced the second generation of its
Command and Control Center (3C), its common management software platform for
comprehensive security management. 3C 2.0 provides an enhanced ability to
mitigate and control risk by providing clients a customized platform to
converge multiple security systems including CCTV, intercom, access control,
perimeter detection, fire alarm, building management and traffic management.
    As a fully scalable, flexible and vendor-agnostic platform, 3C 2.0
seamlessly integrates traditional analog components with newer digital
technologies and works with cameras, digital video recorders and other
subsystems from nearly any vendor. The system provides operators all relevant
risk information within a central system, creating fast, intelligent event
response by reducing the risk and time associated with gathering and
interpreting data from individual systems. Incorporating pre-defined "best-
practice" procedures, 3C 2.0 removes manual decision-making requirements from
the operators thereby reducing the risk associated with human error.
    Offering increased reliability, functionality and robustness over the
previous generation, the current version is designed for large-scale
installations and can handle up to 2,000 events/alarms per minute and over
100,000 events/alarms per day. 3C 2.0 also offers full redundancy capabilities
with seamless failover so that, in the event of a server error, security is
not compromised and operators are not interrupted.
    "Clients configure the system according to highly confidential internal
policies and procedures," said Michael Godfrey, chief technology officer of
Visual Defence. "The unique Process Flow tool included in 3C 2.0 allows
clients to easily integrate these policies and procedures into the system
themselves through the creation of flowcharts based on event conditions. The
client-defined flowcharts are translated into step-by-step instructions for
operators and can include both automatic and manually-generated activities."
    3C 2.0 unites mapping, video, and alarm management functionality and
relays the information on an easy-to-use triple screen display that includes a
video and asset management screen, alarm management and response screen, and
multi-level mapping screen. The mapping functionality has been extended to
integrate the geographical location of assets like cameras, intercoms, help
phones and fire alarms allowing security guards and law enforcement officials
to more rapidly respond. The mapping features also allow for horizontal and
vertical panning, and support standard and vector maps enabling users to zoom
and drill-down to view the location in a specific area of a building.
    "Security events in recent years have highlighted the growing risks
facing organizations and the increasing need to protect people and
infrastructure," said Dagan Sadeh, CEO of Visual Defence. "Increased
flexibility and functionality are important facets of any advanced security
system today. The 3C 2.0 records all events, alarms and operator actions,
allowing clients to generate reports that can be used to analyze their entire
security system, assist in optimizing response times and refine policies to
continually improve public safety and security. These comprehensive records
also provide a defensible audit trail ensuring compliance with process
controls such as Sarbanes-Oxley."
    3C 2.0 is highly customizable and therefore has applications in many
market segments including transportation, government, education, healthcare
and industry.
