Smart city video platform ‘fuses’ public, private camera systems

The FususONE video platform, says the company, removes barriers created by disparate camera systems by fusing all private and public video sources into a single platform. Fusus can be dropped onto any network in any building, anywhere in a city, and within seconds it detects, analyzes, and connects to every camera on the building’s network and sends a unified video feed to a single web-based interface.

Field-based users such as police, fire, and EMS personnel can access a mobile version of the system via an iOS- or Android-compatible mobile app to stream video from incident sites, transmit their location, send panic alerts, receive image and text alerts, and communicate directly with their command center.

“Even today’s smartest cities are missing a major source of intelligence – data from both public and private video sources.” says Chris Lindenau, CEO of Fusus. “Fusus bridges that gap by pulling in video from multiple sources into a single video platform to speed emergency response and provide situational awareness.”

The platform features policy-based sharing, which ensures that video is transmitted when required, and adheres to the privacy considerations of its users, based on the location of the video. For example, schools may limit video sharing to emergencies, such as an active shooter event.

A blend of event-based and constant sharing is also possible through the system’s rules-based engine. Businesses may share live video across a multi-campus environment while sharing only on alarm to first responders.

“For years, public and private video was separate,” says Anthony Baldoni, COO of Fusus. “Large camera software companies built bloated and proprietary video management software because it was in their financial interest to control the user interface, not because it helped the client. Fusus disrupts this model – video can be shared between public and private entities with the simple installation of an appliance. No expensive integration fees, software licenses, servers, or proprietary APIs.”

The Fusus camera registry also allows entire communities to collect and securely share camera locations and recorded video evidence between private and public sources. In the event of a theft, for example, police may automatically request to a store owner a recorded video to speed the process of evidence gathering in their investigation.

Fusus was previously SecuroNet – a public-private camera mapping and registry company. The updated brand and product offerings, say the company, are a reflection of the advances in video and IoT networking that the company has since developed.
