New video compression technology

October 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

GE Interlogix and eTreppid Technologies, LLC (eTreppid) have announced an agreement granting GE Interlogix exclusive use of eTreppid's new video compression technology for the global security and surveillance market. As part of the agreement, GE Interlogix will manufacture and market a new Digital Video Casino Surveillance System, which incorporates eTreppid's advanced video compression technology, along with automatic gaming audit software and object recognition and tracking software developed by eTreppid.

The technology that GE Interlogix will use from eTreppid is aimed at allowing digital video surveillance images to be stored more efficiently as well as improve transmission speeds over networks and the Internet by using less bandwidth and ensure improved data back-up capacity.

"We believe eTreppid's technology represents a significant advancement in video compression," said Ken Boyda, CEO of GE Interlogix. "We have been successful in the field of video compression for many years now, and believe eTreppid's technology offers a major leap forward. The first system we are introducing that uses this new compression has been designed specially for the needs of the gaming industry. Casinos place some of the most stringent demands on video storage and surveillance, and in our opinion this will establish a new standard in video image quality and performance for high-end video systems."
