By Mark Allen; General Manager, Physical Access of Identiv
We are excited to welcome 3VR to Identiv, and look forward to the impact their technology and the team will have on Identiv and the customer experience. This combination will provide Identiv with a full range of technologies to deliver its vision for secure, pervasive yet frictionless premises security, situational awareness, and business insights.
3VR’s video intelligence solutions offer a single platform for real-time security and consumer insights, enabling organizations to protect employees, customers, and assets as well as improve store operations and shopping experiences. 3VR’s open, pluggable platform leverages existing customer infrastructure and allows them to expand their systems’ capabilities seamlessly. 3VR serves customers in the financial services, retail, hospitality, and other industries.
Our DNA has always been to build trusted relationships with our customers and partners. Our companies’ vertical expertise and anchor customer strengths reflect our shared strategy as a trusted advisor to our customers. Since the video industry has arrived at the point where everything is digital — from the camera to the screen — the focus now is on usability. The combination of Identiv and 3VR not only makes sense but when we integrate 3VR’s video technology into our Hirsch PACS platform, we anticipate creating a seamless user experience. Today, Identiv is substantially deepening the scope of the solutions and bringing these benefits to the physical world of people, places, and things.
