LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND — Human Recognition Systems (HRS), a market leader in developing and delivering solutions which identify people and their behaviours, today announced a partnership with leading video analytics provider Vidient Systems, Inc. to address the growing demand for intelligent video analytics and smart CCTV solutions in a number of target markets including aviation, critical infrastructure, government, retail, finance and banking.

The partnership with HRS marks another significant milestone in Vidient’s strategy to align with leading systems integrators around the world that specialize in highly complex security environments.
“Partnering with HRS enables us to focus intently on the specific intelligent video analytic needs of major corporations, transportation hubs and public facilities throughout the UK while HRS concentrates on overall installation and deployment issues,” said Brooks McChesney, founder and Chief Client Executive of Vidient Systems, Inc. “This is a strong, synergistic relationship that has opened numerous new opportunities for both companies.”
HRS and Vidient will bring a wide range of smart surveillance solutions to the market. Smart surveillance systems will automatically distinguish humans and analyse their behaviours against set patterns, alerting security personnel to risks in real-time.

Combined with the correct processes and policies, smart video surveillance solutions will deliver substantial cost savings and tangible security benefits.
Hannis further noted, “Human behavioural analytics is an area that is developing rapidly and one that HRS has embraced fully due to our understanding of complex identity solutions. Vidient’s powerful range of analytics combined with our ability to work closely with clients and integrate large solutions successfully will set standards which will be difficult to match in the industry.”
