RESTON, Va., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Cernium, the leading developer of video analytics-enabled products, announced today that Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions has selected and deployed Perceptrak, Cernium's server-based enterprise video analytics software solution. Perceptrak will assist corporate security personnel in monitoring the perimeter of the Baltimore, Maryland medical center campus.
"Perceptrak makes it possible for Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions security operations to focus on the visual information they need the most to protect people and critical assets," said Stephen Graham, president and general manager of Cernium's Systems Division. "We are very pleased to bring the organization a solution that cost-effectively meets current security requirements while allowing for future surveillance system expansion."
Perceptrak optimizes safety, security and operational effectiveness. It automatically watches video from security cameras 24x7 for events of interest and adds metadata about the content, enabling organizations to monitor, manage, distribute, store and query video in a powerful new way. Security operators are alerted in real time only to situations that require attention, and a robust database of events simplifies searches for critical video information during investigations.
"Keeping patients, visitors and staff safe is our primary objective at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions," said George Economas, director of corporate security at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. "Perceptrak serves as a force multiplier, allowing us to concentrate our efforts and proactively respond to potential incidents as they occur. The software's search functionality also assists us in conducting more rapid, productive investigations."
