Intelligent Security Systems (ISS) is a leading developer of security surveillance and control systems for networked digital video and audio recording, video image pattern processing and digital data transmission. ISS systems can be integrated with access control systems, fire and life safety, and can be made compatible with virtually any third party security equipment.
The company’s roots are in space technology, dating back over fifty years, and this considerable pool of scientific and engineering talent has brought their significant research and development capabilities to bear in the field of integrated security systems. The scientific and experimental potential of the company was based on fundamental research in neural networks, pattern recognition, and robotic control systems, initially conducted in the aerospace industry, and in flexible, automated production systems.
As the industry leader in video management and image analytic software, their expertise with advanced algorithms is unmatched, providing a level of intelligence that was previously only available for government and military applications. The company continuously develops functional capabilities of production, acquiring an advantage in the global market of video surveillance and security.
Today, over 25,000 systems using ISS technology are employed in 51 countries. The products are implemented in banks, office complexes, industrial and manufacturing sites, retail locations and supermarkets, petrochemical processing facilities, marinas, sports arenas, casinos, hospitals, schools etc. ISS has patented object-oriented event driven core firmware, Delta Wavelet video compression, intelligent video motion detection and digital video recognition capabilities
Dr. Roman Jarkoi, Founder. Chairman, and Chief Technical Officer
Dr. Roman Jarkoi, founder of ISS, began his career in the space and rocket program and as such has extensive experience with developing the sorts of complex algorithms that would later substantially change the world of video security.
Dr. Jarkoi began developing revolutionary multichannel video systems in 1993. The system, which automatically tracked the displacement of objects, had the means of vocal notification of events and controlled the video recording of tape recorder. In three more years, he developed a completely digital system, capable of writing video directly to the hard disks and reflecting live and multiplexed video on the digital monitor. Dr. Jarkoi founded the company based on this innovative technology in 1996.
