Pelco by Schneider Electric has announced that its VideoXpert video management system is now integrated with iTrak, the latest incident management solution to be developed by iView Systems.
“The iTrak plugin continues our efforts to work with other leaders in the industry on providing Pelco customers with seamless access to ready-made security solutions such that they can better understand and protect their organisations,” said Jonathan Lewit, director of business applications at Pelco by Schneider Electric.
Ideal for multi-site, multi-departmental solutions, iTrak provides end users with a centralised platform for incident and risk management. Its intuitive system design makes it easy to access comprehensive reporting, profiling, interview management, risk analysis and subject profiling information.
With the integration to VideoXpert, end users will not only be able to see all related incident data via a single report, but they can also now link these incidents with supporting video.
The Incident File feature captures critical incident data including location, sub-location, date and time as well as a short description of the incident in question. The added ability to include supporting attachments in the form of a narrative or media file to the incident subsequently allows for quick information retrieval.
Narrative files provide flexibility to include free-form text. This can be critical in instances of collecting witness accounts or documenting incident notes, while the media file attachments enable end users to include pictures or PDF files for more thorough event investigations.
“Ease-of-use and the integration of video with critical business data are cornerstones of the VideoXpert platform,” added Lewit. “The integration with iView really is a prime example of our long-term commitment to providing end users with extensible functionality through partner integration.”
Martin Drew, president and CEO at iView Systems, explained: “The seamless integration of iView Systems iTrak with the Pelco VideoXpert Ops Centre provides an instant and efficient method of converging incident-related information with its associated video data. This is hugely important. Users will also be able to leverage the tagging capability to identify video from cameras associated with iTrak’s incident location classifications. We believe the overall integration will provide significant improvements in overall operational efficiency and accuracy of reporting.”
