In late February, global conglomerate Bosch enhanced its Security Systems division by purchasing Extreme CCTV, a provider of active infrared illuminators, video surveillance products and systems for license plate capture technology. The $92 million transaction opened the door for new technologies that could change the video security market.

Extreme CCTV staffs about 130 employees at locations in Burnaby, B.C., Canada; Newcastle and Church Crookham in the United Kingdom; and Barbados. The company’s subsidiaries include Forward Vision and Derwent Systems.

Bosch Security Systems manufactures video surveillance, access control, intrusion, evacuation and fire/life-safety systems. The company’s solutions are used in a wide range of industries and applications, including banks, city centers, industrial complexes, retail stores, train stations and airports. In 2007, the Bosch security division reported sales of about $2 billion.
