Identiv, nXient Expand Physical Security, Identity Management Solutions

Identiv has announced its partnership with nXient to expand security and identity-management solutions in the Australian and New Zealand markets. nXient has launched integration software that harnesses Identiv's Hirsch Velocity access-control system and Mobotix's closed-circuit television (CCTV) system. The integration uses Identiv's Hirsch Velocity Video Framework application programming interface (API) and Mobotix's native video codec, MxPeg.

Identiv's Hirsch Velocity Software is an integrated platform that manages access-control and security operations at thousands of facilities, the company reports, ranging from single, high-secure rooms to multi-building, multi-location campuses. "For the first time ever, these advanced access control and video surveillance systems can seamlessly interact for powerful results and cost savings," said Ross Head, nXient's founder and CEO, in a prepared statement. "The nXient integration for Hirsch Velocity provides incredible integration for the Mobotix video management system. Powerful and simple to operate, this integration ensures you won't miss a thing—all events contain video with full audio recording."

In nXient's software integration, the Hirsch Velocity platform provides the core functionality of the video framework and APIs for extending Velocity's use of real-time video resources. MxPeg and Mobotix's API provide direct communication with each 6-megapixel, high-resolution, IP-based CCTV camera, allowing bidirectional triggers of motion events, activity sensors and alarms, and the ability to store video and audio tagged to alarms within Velocity.

"Identiv is thrilled to be revolutionizing physical security and identity management with nXient," said Mark Allen, Identiv's general manager for physical access, in the prepared statement. "nXient's software integration extends the overall functionality of our Hirsch access control system and Mobotix's CCTV system, adding greater real-time situational awareness so a facility can respond to events quickly and more effectively."
