G4S Technology, a global market leader in providing fully integrated building security solutions, is pleased to announce the Symmetry Security Management System now integrates with the MangoDSP Raven video encoders with the leading video analytic software on-board – delivering a fully intelligent edge-based video solution.

This latest integration for G4S technology is well timed as the demand for relevant, qualified information has never been greater to mitigate risk. This has resulted in an upward surge in the demand for video analytics across the business. Until now such systems were standalone – the new solution from G4S Technology consolidates the security information centrally, all managed using the Symmetry Security Management System.

The MangoDSP Raven video encoders deliver an MPEG-4 compressed video stream at 4 common intermediate format resolutions and up to 30 frames per second. With the additional video analytic software, the combined integration can detect and classify such objects as people, unwanted activity and vehicles, based on user defined rules including virtual trip wires. The device proactively analyses video, produces alerts and other information that is accessible anywhere on the IP network, which is reported and actioned via the Symmetry solution.

The benefits

By integrating with the Symmetry Security Management System, the data can be reviewed in real time. Analysing other building security data provided by Symmetry, including access control and alarm management data, can provide the user with a complete site overview that can ensure the most efficient process to react to any threat. It is the ability to consolidate alarm data from various sources and subsequently trigger any further action that delivers a unique solution.

“Demand for video analytics is increasing as senior Security personnel continue to seek increased support in reducing risk. The integration with Mango and on board analytics ensure we have a cutting-edge solution to address increasing customer requirements” explained David Ella, Chief Technical Officer at G4S Technology.

“Bringing together the strengths of each party, and the ability for the information to be captured, analysed and stored, ensures the benefits of the partnership is greater than the sum of its parts. We are very proud to partner with G4S Technology” said Daniel Peled Executive Vice President of Sales at MangoDSP, “We both value innovation, systems interoperability and thrive on delivering the most advanced security solutions to fit today’s market needs”.
