Half of the ten companies that were recognized by the ASIS 2010 Accolades specialize in surveillance technologies ranging from color night-vision, weapon detection, and system management. Accolades co-chair Ron Lander commented on the large number of video surveillance technology at the conference, showing rapid development and offering “enhanced analytics functionality and better resolution.” Lander admitted that this year’s program was very “competitive.”
The company’sF-Series line of IP security cameras now comes with the night vision option. ChromaNox is an advanced electron multiplied charged-couple device (CCD) camera that produces high quality color or monochrome video in lighting conditions from daylight to starlight, without the need for additional illumination. With applications for government, military, defense, police, security professionals, and the industrial science markets, this technology provides the visual color details users need to identify people and objects.
Homeland Security NewsWire had the opportunity to speak with Bill Klink, FLIR’s vice president for Security and Surveillance Business Unit on the company’s reception of the ASIS 10 accolade. “We’re really gratified by the award. It’s a completely new technology for the commercial security marketplace — the driving trend in the market to keep on getting better and better imaging in lower lighting conditions keeps us striving. This conference is always good for us since we’re in a business that benefit greatly by awareness. FLIR is known for bringing military technology to the commercial market—and since newer technologies are so easily overlooked in this industry, conferences like ASIS help to bring about the kind of exposure we need.”
