“Intelligent Video Analytics” Helps Secure MLB All-Star Game

July 12, 2006

Cernium Corp.'s Perceptrak system to watch and monitor all security video feeds for suspicious behavior (abandoned objects, fallen individuals, rapidly dispersing crowds, and intruders in secure areas) that may require the further attention of security personnel.

Reston, VA (from release) - Cernium Corp., the leading provider of advanced video analytics, announced that PNC Park in Pittsburgh, site of the 2006 Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 11, used Cernium's state-of-the-art intelligent video analytics system to monitor security video for events surrounding the All-Star Game. InterTECH Security LLC, PNC Park's security consultant, selected the Cernium Perceptrak system, which alerts security personnel when it detects suspicious behaviors, such as fallen persons, abandoned or removed objects, facility intrusions, and lurking or erratically-behaving individuals.

"Advanced video analytics is an extremely effective way to ensure that every security camera is being continuously monitored for behaviors or events that may require the added attention of security or law enforcement personnel," said Chris Wetzel, COO of InterTECH.

InterTECH and PNC Park join a wide range of Cernium customers that are adopting video analytics, including the City of San Diego, Boeing Corporation, The Johns Hopkins University, the City of Yonkers Municipal Parking Authority and George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate. InterTECH says that Perceptrak is the only advanced video analytics solution able to simultaneously analyze security video for any combination of 18 distinct behaviors, from 16 cameras, in real time, on a single video processor.

"The Cernium Perceptrak system constantly monitors for suspicious behavior and then alerts to that behavior in real-time, so that security officers can be preemptive and not reactive," said Robert Evans, Regional Director of Cernium Corp. "Cernium is very pleased to be working with InterTECH Security and PNC Park to make the 2006 Major League Baseball All-Star Game a safe and successful celebration."
