THRIVE IntelligenceTM Unveils Real-Time Video Monitoring Service for Hospitals and Schools at ISC West

DALLAS -- THRIVE Intelligence, which provides an end-to-end video surveillance solution that detects, alerts and intelligently intervenes, unveiled today at ISC West specialized security offerings for the healthcare and education markets.  The vertical market solutions, which address the growing problem of violence in hospitals and schools, combine leading-edge video analytics with real-time, event-based monitoring by security intervention specialists at THRIVE's national command center in Dallas, Texas.  Company representatives are demonstrating THRIVE's full array of video security offerings during ISC West, April 10-12, 2013, in Booth #10133 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

"Hospitals and schools are supposed to be safe havens, but the sad reality is that in recent years both have seen increasing and ever more shocking levels of violence," said Rick Cook, THRIVE's executive vice president of sales.  "For these facilities, THRIVE is pleased to now offer specialized programs that can detect major threats and alert first responders in real-time.  For less than the average salary of one guard, THRIVE is now able to protect a hospital or school with 100 cameras and 24/7/365 video monitoring."

"Hospitals and schools are large, complex, fast-moving environments that require a more sophisticated security infrastructure to help counteract an alarming rise in violence," said Matt Antkowiak, chief intelligence officer for THRIVE Intelligence.  "Our vertical solutions enable us to leverage the technology, processes and methodologies that have proven so successful in the general commercial market and apply them to address the unique security concerns in education and healthcare."

THRIVE assesses each facility to customize protocols that define events and responses most appropriate to the environment.  For example, education protocols may include after-hours presence detection, facility protection, appear/disappear detection for the gym, cafeteria, and auditorium, admittance to authorized access-only areas, and much more.

THRIVE Intelligence typically provides:

--  24/7/365 real-time monitoring of emergency room perimeters and other key, identified locations.

--  A virtual guard to allow on-site security personnel the freedom to patrol and actively assist.

--  Real-time detection and first responder dispatch (as necessary) upon unauthorized intrusion.

--  Video escort and two-way audio intervention for immediate alert and response.

--  Monitoring of restricted movement and special needs patients and students.

--  Cost-effective retrofit of existing IP or analog cameras or custom hardware and service packages.
