Iveda Solutions Receives Purchase Order for Public Safety Projects in Mexico
For Immediate Release
Mesa, AZ (June 6, 2011) – Iveda Solutions (OTCBB: IVDA) announced today receipt of a purchase order from its partner INSYS for Public Safe City projects in Mexico. The initial phase of the project is estimated to generate over $1 million in revenue for Iveda Solutions during the second and third quarters.
INSYS won the contract with the State Government of Chiapas and the State Government of Tabasco consisting of citywide deployment of video surveillance systems to support public safety initiatives in several main cities and metropolitan areas throughout the two states.
INSYS has chosen Iveda Solutions as a partner because of the company’s expertise in open-source, cloud-based video surveillance products and services.
As part of a national effort to enhance public safety, municipal governments in Mexico are establishing initiatives to integrate citywide public notice systems with video surveillance technology. These initiatives are collaborations between different city departments, including Public Works, Traffic and Roads, and Public Safety.
The initiatives require open platform standards that increase flexibility, scalability, and future-proofing.
According to INSYS, the city governments will begin with at least 200 urban locations for the installation of public structures designed for placing public notices and advertisement. Leveraging the soon to be available structure with ready electrical power and connectivity sources onsite or within range, they will be designed to integrate video surveillance cameras at each of these sites for public safety functions.
The governments want to use this technology to increase the efficiency and responsiveness of the police and increase public safety.
“Iveda Solutions came highly recommended to us by a federal government agency here in Mexico, already utilizing their services. I know that the agency did a thorough due diligence not only on the company but its technology,” said Julio Cesar Ovalle, president of INSYS.
“MEGAsys, Iveda Solutions’ subsidiary in Taiwan, is well versed in safe city deployments in Asia, further corroborating their strengths and capabilities. I am confident that Iveda Solutions will provide the best cloud-based technology and video hosting services for the cities involved in this project,” added Ovalle.
For this deployment, Iveda Solutions will partner with INSYS in video surveillance and wireless design, data center infrastructure buildout, and project management.
At the end of the day, Iveda Solutions and INSYS will host and centralize video management, remote access, and storage. This will alleviate the cities’ burden of maintaining costly infrastructure.
Centrally hosted and managed video throughout the cities is designed to allow law enforcement and other first responders multiple simultaneous access for real-time, coordinated assessment of ongoing events.
This will provide officers with enhanced response capabilities through real-time access to video throughout the city.
“Our company is honored to be a part of a public safety initiative of this magnitude, working side by side with a leading international technology provider,” said David Ly, president and CEO of Iveda Solutions.
“This is further validation of our enterprise-class, cloud-based video surveillance solutions,” added Ly.
