IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) - Irvine-based Ubiquity Corp. (
"Having seen and reviewed Ubiquity's analytics and technology, their unique approach and versatility in product offering sets a new bar for video analytics while propelling them ahead of the curve in a very competitive and fast growing industry," said Gregory Lynch, J.D., Senior Director Global Sales, Security Solutions for Cisco Systems, Inc.
Co-Chairman Nick Mitsakos said, "This specific application highlights the robust and groundbreaking technology that Ubiquity has developed. We believe that the ability to identify objects, logos, and other challenging video-based images is one of the greatest economic opportunities Ubiquity can pursue with its formidable IP portfolio."
The software package will provide customers with a user-friendly interface that can be used for independently verifying the robustness of the algorithm, and testing reading capabilities on both images and video. The WEAV software platform is ideal for reading license plates under difficult imaging conditions, such as low-resolution footage, video recorded in difficult weather conditions and heavily compressed footage.
Ubiquity assembled a specialized team of engineers and PhD's to complete the Beta test for Cisco headed up by Kristian Sandberg PhD and Sengan Baring-Gould, PhD.
"Ubiquity has been working with CISCO for the last 12 months and per Cisco's request we are delivering a beta test of our WEAV platform. I think our product will fit very nicely within Cisco's framework," said Ubiquity's CTO Kristian Sandberg.
"Leveraging the WEAV platform capability, Ubiquity intends to follow its license plate identification application with a unique and powerful application for detecting guns in surveillance footage. The software application being delivered allows for easy and convenient verification." Sengan Baring Gould, PhD.
Chris Carmichael, CEO of Ubiquity, said that "Moving into beta testing for this important application on our WEAV platform is an important milestone for our company. Our WEAV Object and Logo detection and our Automated License Plate Recognition technology within that effort, is a significant tool in the arsenal of law enforcement and public safety agencies, and we are committed to moving this technology forward to drive more effective results. We are excited to be delivering our application to Cisco for testing and believe our technology and analytics are a great fit because they can be easily integrated into Cisco's existing technology."
