IPSecurityCenter Interoperates With ShotSpotter

CNL : 12 October, 2010  (New Product)
The innovative Gunshot Location System from ShotSpotter has now been interfaced to the IPSecurityCenter Physical Security Information System from CNL
CNL has implemented a technology interface to the ShotSpotter Gunshot Location System (GLS).

The ShotSpotter Gunshot Location System uses wide-area acoustic surveillance coupled with audio analytics for public safety, homeland security, critical infrastructure protection, and military applications. The ShotSpotter GLS greatly aids with violent crime reduction and enhanced physical security and includes an open interface for conveying alerts to complementary systems, such as the IPSecurtyCenter.

This interface will ensure that when an incident is detected by a deployed GLS, its location is immediately conveyed so that intelligence is aggregated from other systems such as CCTV and GIS mapping ensuring operators have immediate awareness and enhanced situational intelligence. Incident activity can be visually verified using nearby video surveillance cameras enabling the most rapid and appropriate response. Two-way communications can simultaneously be maintained with the response team, until the incident is resolved. All of this is managed through one intuitive interface, and the action of every operator is recorded in a centralized database for management and auditing purposes.

IPSecurtyCenter has the ability to bring together disparate video sources, which means agencies can access feeds from third party CCTV systems, such as airports, shopping centers, hotels and convention centers. This gives them a much larger pool of cameras to use to assess a situation. Together the two systems will give a command and control center complete situational management capabilities following a gunshot incident.

"CNL is committed to working with new technologies that provide End-Users with improved security and greater efficiency. The ShotSpotter GLS is a very exciting and complementary surveillance technology that allows IPSecurityCenter to obtain real-time alerts indicating the origin of a gunfire." says Matthew Kushner, President, CNL Americas. "Combining gunfire detection and alerting technology ensures that when a firearm is discharged, agencies no longer need to rely on the delayed and imprecise reports of incidents from citizens. As a firearm discharge is detected, audio and video at and nearby the scene can instantly be available at any command center, significantly increasing the chance of apprehending the culprits, obtaining evidence, finding witnesses, and enabling a more responsive police presence."
