"It provides peace of mind to know we have [video intelligence] capabilities built into the system. As things happen, as events take place, it makes the job of looking for information much more efficient."
Dario Santana, Security Consultant
"I have been in hotel security since 1990 and never seen anything that is able to do the things 3VR technology does. It is light years ahead of the DVR we previously had installed, we are getting over 90 percent accuracy for facial recognition. Not only is it immensely valuable from a security standpoint, but it has also empowered us to take hotel customer service to the next level."
John Alan Moore, Director of Security and Life
The Hilton Hotel
Joe Davis, Senior Manager, Loss Prevention
”We can now locate video footage of individual transactions, do cross searches and search video by account or transaction type. The integration of 3VR with our Cleartouch teller system enables us to easily surface the face of a perpetrator when we know a fraudulent transaction has taken place... We've seen a reduction in our fraud of roughly 80% year-over-year from 2008 to 2009."
Bill McNamara, Senior V.P. of Technology & Security | Union Savings Bank
Gene Olson, Assistant Airport Manager
Evansville Regional Airport
"The system [saves] me the time I spent on viewing videos that I can use for other duties. [On the several occasions when I needed to provide evidence to law enforcement authorities], I already had it on disc to hand over to the FBI or whoever needed it.”
Kirby Milham, Security Director
Denali Alaskan Credit Union
"3VR enables our investigators to be more efficient by reducing investigation time and enabling them to respond quickly to requests for surveillance film. Previously, when an event occurred, we’d have to wait for the download of images to complete before we could conduct our searches. Now, we can conduct real time search using specific criteria to find the relevant information recorded by our video surveillance system in just minutes.”
Melissa Wolff, AVP Loss Prevention & Compliance
Washington State Employee's Credit Union
"The 3VR solution purported to do a lot of innovative things that other products had promised but ultimately failed to do. Being able to search video quickly and get sharp, clear images that we can turn directly over to law enforcement as evidence is a huge advantage. Video with a clear face shot is valuable evidence. The ability to then tie that face to a car and license plate number simply seals the deal."
Chip McBreen, Assistant Vice President for Fraud and Security Services
Members 1st Credit Union
"I wanted a system we could grow with. The system already has analytics built in with facial recognition and other opportunities, and I know as a security administrator that we can grow into the system versus the company wishing the system could do this or that for us."
Josh Brown, Director of Security
"Video is a critical tool that allows us to keep our patients, staff and medical resources safe and secure. Prior to 3VR, if a crime occurred, we would need to have investigators manually watch hours and hours of video. With 3VR, we can quickly and easily search for and find incriminating video, reducing our investigation times by up to 40% and allowing us to investigate cases that we never had the bandwidth to pursue."
