“Demonstrating a scalable end-to-end solution that can be fully adopted and marketed by any of our systems integration partners reinforces the value of a converged security solution,” says James I. Chong, CEO and founder of Vidsys. “By engaging the ASIS audience in a more dynamic and interactive way, we plan to showcase the true benefits of a CSIM platform in a variety of applications, as well as the ability to expand beyond security and into Internet of Things.”

The Safe City Consortium will provide demonstrations during the ASIS show at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in conference room, Bayhill 17-18. The presentations will consist of industry-specific use cases, such as Smart Security, Smart Transportation, Smart Campus, Smart Buildings and others. The goal of the event is to educate attendees on how the Safe City GSOC can provide a safer and more secure environment, with tangible ROI and lasting benefits for municipalities and organizations alike.
