Intellectual Property

As early technology providers of municipal surveillance, we discovered the unique requirements of a successful deployment, and continually evolve with the technology. Our team has always included onsite technical innovation, and as we immersed ourselves into the culture of public safety and local governments, we developed a deep understanding of their needs and embarked on a course to produce technology solutions specifically designed for municipalities.

We are proud to offer years of experience, depth of knowledge, and best-of-breed technology to meet the ever-expanding needs of cities, police departments, and other critical departments that every urban area depends on. The U.S. Patent office acknowledges the uniqueness of our technology, which is currently at work in a number of communities to provide the best surveillance possible.

Peer-to-Peer Surveillance Architecture

US 2016/0249017 A1
US 2017/0104962 A1


A peer-to-peer surveillance architecture comprising a plurality of independent nodes for capturing, analyzing, storing, and viewing surveillance information is disclosed. The surveillance architecture has no central controller or single point of failure because of the peer to peer or independent relationship between its nodes. Generally, surveillance information of various types is captured by one or more capture nodes and transmitted to or one or more viewing, content storage, or server nodes for display, analysis, storage, or a combination thereof. Server nodes may provide authentication services to validate user or device credentials prior to granting access to surveillance information. In one or more embodiments, specialized video compression hardware is provided to allow high quality video surveillance information to be transmitted across low bandwidth connections. Compression may also be performed on other types of surveillance information.

Connection Node Providing Supplemental Bandwidth for Mobile Units

US 2016/0295452 A1


A connection node provides a high bandwidth connection on demand to mobile units that are in need of increased bandwidth for data transfers. In this manner, the connection node can supplement the bandwidth available to a mobile unit so that large volumes of data can be communicated to and from the mobile unit. A movable antenna automatically focuses its reception area on the mobile unit’s location, after which, a high bandwidth connection can be established for high-speed data transfer. The high bandwidth connection is maintained, such as by tracking the mobile unit with the antenna, even if the mobile unit is moving.

Automated Camera Response in a Surveillance Architecture

US 2011/0013018 A1


A detection and response device for a surveillance system detects events, responds to events, or both. The detection and response device may be used with or provided by a variety of surveillance systems, including peer-to-peer surveillance architectures. The device may utilize one or more defined geo-spaces. If an event occurs in a geo-space a predefined response may then be provided. The predefined response may include automatically targeting one or more cameras to areas relevant to the event and presenting one or more predefined views optimized for viewing the event. If an event does not occur within a geo-space, the detection and response device may provide one or more default responses.
