Video system links surveillance to computer-aided dispatch

Intergraph's Video Responder helps public safety dispatchers view video while allowing security officers to send information to CAD maps.

Intergraph has introduced its Video Responder public safety technology, which links video surveillance feeds to Intergraph's computer-aided dispatch software, providing dispatchers with more and better information.

According to the company, the system enables dispatchers to automatically identify and view camera feeds in the vicinity of an incident on a CAD map. Video Responder also helps public safety and security personnel monitor live video feeds and enter information directly into CAD, aiding video surveillance and virtual patrols.
