APRIL 13, 2009--Partnering with Sarnoff (Princeton, NJ, USA; www.sarnoff.com), Duos Technologies (Jacksonville, FL, USA; www.duostechnologies.com) has designed, developed, and installed a turnkey security visualization system at a major international airport.

Duos Technologies integrated Pyramid Vision Technologies (Princeton, NJ, USA; www.pyramidvision.com) Video Flashlight and VisionAlert applications so that, through the use of more than 100 motion-sensitive video security cameras, security personnel can instantly pinpoint a suspicious bag, automatically detect intruders that breach a security checkpoint or loiter in a designated area, or even track a person going the wrong way down a concourse.

Video Flashlight is a computer-aided visualization platform that combines live video images with 3-D facility models to produce an intuitive security display. It replaces traditional banks of CCTV monitors with a view that provides security operators a picture of their tactical situation.

VisionAlert uses computer vision techniques to analyze video images and identify activities that may represent a specific set of threat scenarios. For more information, go to: http://www.duostechnologies.com/DownloadCenter/AirportSecuritySystem-CS.pdf
