Arecont Vision Becomes Select Supplier of Megapixel Cameras

Glendale, CA (April 2011) - Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel

Camera technology, announces their partnership with FST21 as one of the premier suppliers of megapixel cameras for SafeRise® installations. The new partnership complements Arecont Vision’s advanced camera surveillance technologies with the combination of facial recognition, voice recognition, pattern of behavior, license plate recognition and visitor management that FST21’s SafeRise offers.

“Our partnership with FST21 further exemplifies how Arecont Vision megapixel cameras continue to be assimilated for mainstream video surveillance applications,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President of Marketing. “FST21’s SafeRise® solution features non-intrusive biometrics that is highly reliant upon the quality of video captured by the system. Arecont Vision megapixel cameras deliver the image details required to ensure highly accurate system performance. We are pleased to be the exclusive camera manufacturer for the combination of these two pioneering technologies.”

The FST21 SafeRise® system is an easy, automated and convenient identity management

system that regulates access to a room or building for both authorized individuals and visitors. SafeRise® utilizes a fusion of second-generation biometrics and high-resolution video to provide the highest level of security. The system is unique in that it uses no key, no card, and no code. Instead, the face and voice of authorized personnel work as a key. “FST21’s SafeRise® provides almost human access control, but it still needs the ‘eyes’ to see,” added Avi Lupo, CEO of FST21 America, Inc. “Arecont Vision’s high-performance megapixel cameras supply our system with high-quality images to make an intelligent decision and confirm the identity of the person at the entrance. FST21 has been consistently growing and we’ve found great success with Arecont Vision as our partner on recent projects and look forward to continuing with them on many more to come.”
