Video Intelligence Platform™ Becomes Member in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program

SAN FRANCISCO, March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 3VR, Inc., the video intelligence company, today announced that it has received Lenel factory certification and joined the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP).

This certification applies to all 3VR SmartRecorders, software and search applications, extends the power of 3VR's platform and underscores the ability of 3VR's Video Intelligence Platform™ to support of a broad range of video applications and products. The combination of Lenel's OnGuard security management platform with 3VR provides an easy-to-use and comprehensive solution to a wide range of security challenges.

Lenel is a global leader in scalable, integrated systems for the commercial security market with over 18,000 system implementations in more than 90 countries. Lenel certified 3VR's interface to its OnGuard product, which delivers access control, ID credential issuance, intruder detection and smartcard functionalities, among other applications.

The combination of 3VR's patented platform with versions 6.1.222, 6.3.249 and 6.4.500 of Lenel OnGuard provides monitoring and searching of OnGuard events in a single interface through 3VR OpCenter™.

OpCenter, 3VR's easy-to-use software for monitoring, searching, and organizing live and stored video now provides users with the ability to search and monitor their OnGuard access control activity quickly and effectively. This integration also makes it possible for security personnel to maximize the value of their 3VR SmartRecorder, while benefitting from 3VR's innovative monitoring, searching and SmartAnalytics capabilities.

Features include:

  • 3VR Event Storyboard: Monitor OnGuard access control events in an easy-to-view visual summary
  • 3VR Intelligent Search: Conduct powerful searches and receive alerts from any data point captured by OnGuard or the 3VR platform, including ID, name, access granted/denied, etc.
  • 3VR Correlated Searches: Manage searches for access card activity correlated with other types of information such as facial surveillance, license plate recognition, and motion. Security personnel can also monitor, search and establish alerts related to access card use and alert security staff of possible intrusions.
  • 3VR SmartStorage: Leverage 3VR's video analysis capabilities to isolate and store critical images from OnGuard events and store high-quality footage up to 15 times more efficiently than industry standard DVRs.

3VR customers report reductions in investigation times of up to 60 percent, freeing up personnel and resources to focus on other security priorities.

"This integration is a great fit for both companies and addresses the growing customer and partner demand for efficient, flexible and reliable security systems," said Aisling MacRunnels, chief marketing officer, 3VR. "Our work with Lenel showcases 3VR's open platform and our commitment to partnerships which ultimately benefit our customers. We'll continue to seek out and integrate with many other solutions to meet the constantly evolving needs of the physical security market."

"3VR has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its interface to OnGuard," said Gidon Lessai, director of strategic alliances, Lenel. "We look forward to their continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program."
