Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB UK) 31 October 2013
Xtralis, the world’s leading provider of early detection and visual verification of safety and security solutions, today announced Xchange, a revolutionary & proprietary tool, designed to deploy and commission best-in-class Xtralis applications in 1-step for the FastTrace 2/2X platform. Xchange simplifies & streamlines the licensing process and reduces overall installation time while ensuring quick and easy commissioning. Xtralis has sold over 26,000 channels of outside motion detection and continues to expand the application base for its customers. As announced earlier this year, IntrusionTrace is an i-LIDS® approved primary detection system for operational alert use in sterile zone monitoring applications and delivers unmatched reliable detection. The innovation continues with the announcement of added thermal camera support and enhanced headlight suppression, and that LoiterTrace, a detection analytic for unauthorised loitering, has been expanded to indoor and outdoor applications.
“Convergence, innovation and a flexible approach to the changing business needs of Pendragon were key to the development and implementation of a successful security strategy,” commented Dave Barker, Group Security and CCTV Leader of Pendragon. “Having 245 sites already installed with ADPRO throughout the UK, the ADPRO by Xtralis FastTrace 2/2X and IntrusionTrace package was the obvious choice when fulfilling the high end requirements for numerous dealerships across the UK. The IntrusionTrace video analytics platform is extremely easy to deploy via the online portal and provides us with a better class of complete site detection without nuisance alarms,” said Barker.
In addition to revolutionizing analytics deployment, Xtralis has applied over 25 years of analytics innovation and expertise to design video content analysis focused on early and reliable detection and remote visual verification resulting in reduced nuisance alarms. LoiterTrace is a video analytic that enables real-time, reliable detection of unauthorised loitering in indoor and outdoor monitored areas. The analytic was designed for a variety of applications such as lobbies, ATMs, retail shops, car parks, parks and playgrounds, public transportation hubs, and multi-family housing complexes that are vulnerable to loitering threats such as aggressive begging, solicitation, drug dealing, homeless persons, aggressive behaviour, unauthorised loitering, vandalism and graffiti. These applications prove challenging as they often share spaces that transition from outside to inside, therefore it’s important that the analytic can operate in both indoor and outdoor applications and adapt to fast and slow changing backgrounds. LoiterTrace provides more reliable object detection and the ability to simply configure the alarm time to meet the needs of the application. View LoiterTrace footage library here.
"We’ve had great success with LoiterTrace detecting unauthorised loitering and suspicious behaviour inside and directly outside the lobbies of over 100 multi-family housing complexes that we secure throughout New York and New Jersey. With over 35 years of experience in securing challenging applications such as high-density housing complexes, critical infrastructure, and high-rise office complexes we chose ADPRO FastTrace 2 and LoiterTrace for 2 key reasons,” commented Larry Dolin, Founder and CEO of American Security. “Xtralis is known for its reliability and analytics expertise, and that is demonstrated time and again in the reliable detection we see with LoiterTrace both indoors and outdoors. Secondly, it’s easy to deploy. My installers have reduced their overall installation time by 10% to 20%, since licenses can be remotely deployed and configured,” continues Dolin.
Remarkably, outdoor LoiterTrace can attain higher levels of detection accuracy when used in conjunction with IntrusionTrace. Thousands of video surveillance channels at various outdoor applications such as utility facilities, solar parks, car dealerships, and borders rely on IntrusionTrace for early and reliable detection and remote visual verification of intrusion.

Xchange, an evolution of the existing licensing system, also enables automatic download for the latest version of FastTrace 2/2X firmware, version 2.9 and when used in conjunction with VideoCentral Platinum (VCP) 2.5 customers experience 4x quicker connection times and lower bandwidth use.
