Futuretel Digital Imaging Debuts Intelligent Cameras For Homeland Security
Advanced Digital Video System Enables Proactive Surveillance
Silicon Valley (PRWEB) California May 2, 2003 -- Futuretel Digital Imaging (FDI) provider of military grade digital surveillance technology, recently launched the FDI SmartCam System--the world's most advanced high security video surveillance system. The System's ability to process security applications in real-time, enables proactive surveillance for the first time. This means security experts can have access to critical information to assist them in preventing dangerous or threatening situations from occurring.
FDI's new digital surveillance system was designed to meet the requirements of large, mission critical situations with an unprecedented clarity at any range. Incorporating multiple world-class technologies, FDI cameras are the first to combine intelligence and robotics so they can synchronize to track detected movement and activity seamlessly from room to room--operating with frame-lock accuracy.
Market analysts say the global marketplace for high-end video surveillance is projected to grow from $4 to $10 billion over the next three years. Post 9/11, the United States is facing a critical upgrade to digital systems over the next five to ten years to improve the quality of video, retrieval of information and capabilities of physical alarm systems.
"Expensive analog systems are lumbered with unclear images, limited distance transfer, huge storage requirements, complex multi-camera designs, data degradation, and costly ongoing operations and maintenance," said Mark Koz, CEO, FDI. "Our intelligent camera and the SmartCam System more than address these issues, and have been well received by security experts worldwide."
Based in Silicon Valley, CA, Futuretel Digital Imaging designs and manufactures the FDI SmartCam System, which includes the SmartCam intelligent camera--the first programmable IP-based digital surveillance cameras with the optical flexibility of HDTV. The cameras are small, but can store up to one week of DVD quality video and audio on their own built-in hard drives.
