Intervid awarded Kalagate Certification

February 2004 News

Intervid has achieved the official certification of the Kalagate Imagery Bureau in the UK for its DSS 6000 CCTV system.

"The formal endorsement from the Kalagate Imagery Bureau means that digitally stored images from Intervid's DSS 6000 are now officially admissible in the Courts of Law in the UK and most EC countries - and by implication - South Africa," says Brett Ludlam, managing director of Intervid Africa.

The system, like its predecessors, eliminates possible evidence manipulation because of the highly encrypted composition of the digital images. "The evidence provided by our DSS range has always been used in our courts. Now it has been suitably recognised," he says.

The Kalagate Imagery Bureau is based in England and certifies forensic imagery for the judicial systems around the world.

After careful evaluation of the hardware and software of the DSS 6000 the results were analysed by Kalagate's experienced forensic imagery analysts. Kalagate has concluded that the digital images from the DSS 6000 matched the quality and suitability to provide safe imagery for use as evidence in courts of law.

Kalagate's performance criteria cover resistance to:

* Electro-magnetic interference.

* Climatic tolerance and endurance.

* Mechanical influences.

* Sabotage protection.

* Integration in alarm system.

* Power supply stability.

* Picture quality.

"Imagery is the only permanent record of what actually happened during an event. It is therefore very important that imagery evidence, where possible, is made available. The DSS 6000 system delivers a clear picture, which is easy to work with and enables essential details to be recognised and analysed significantly faster," says Ludlam.

"We are very pleased to be given this certification", says Ludlam. "It is an endorsement of the unique qualities of our solution and the high standards achieved."
