Inpixon Now Offers a Comprehensive Indoor Positioning Product Line, From an Wi-Fi-only Entry Point Solution to Wi-Fi+Bluetooth+Cellular Device Positioning for Physical Cyber Security and Visitor Analytics
PALO ALTO, Calif., May 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inpixon (INPX) (the “Company” or “Inpixon”), a leading indoor positioning and data analytics company, today announced it has completed the acquisition of Locality Systems Inc. (“Locality Systems”), a technology company based near Vancouver, Canada, specializing in wireless device positioning and radio frequency (RF) augmentation of video surveillance systems. Inpixon, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Inpixon Canada, Inc., acquired all of the outstanding common shares of Locality Systems.
"Inpixon can now offer what we believe is one of the indoor positioning market's most comprehensive product lines for visitor analytics and physical cyber security," said Nadir Ali, Inpixon CEO. "We think Locality's Wi-Fi-based analytics solution is a great entry point for customers starting out in indoor positioning. We expect the offering to increase the number of new Inpixon customers and to help us capture a significant share of the fast-growing Wi-Fi analytics market1. Those new customers will have the option to upgrade to IPA Pod and IPA Sensor 4000 as they experience the many uses and benefits of Indoor Positioning Analytics."
Locality Systems' video management system (VMS) integration, currently available for a number of leading VMS vendors, can assist security personnel in identifying potential suspects and tracking their movements cross-camera and from one facility to another. The solution is designed to enhance traditional security video feeds by correlating RF signals with video images.
"From our standpoint, the RF-video correlation offering is a unique and powerful tool to help businesses identify persons of interest and to improve security and safety," commented Frank Hallett, Locality Systems' CTO. "We believe this solution is breaking new ground, and we will continue to innovate with the additional sensor fusion Inpixon has planned."
"I'm thrilled to be joining the Inpixon team," commented Kirk Moir, Locality Systems CEO. "The location intelligence technology developed at Locality is a great fit within the Inpixon product line. I look forward to working with the rest of the Inpixon team to take the expanded product line to Inpixon's customers, prospects and reseller partners in the Wi-Fi analytics space and also the broader, and similarly fast-growing, indoor positioning market2."
