In addition, seminar attracted representatives of huge system integrators of central and northwestern regions engaged in IP video surveillance field.

Eugene Kondratiev, Axxon (former ITV) expert and analyst, has presented INTELLECT software and hardware complex - best innovative product. He spoke about system applications for creation modern integrated security systems. He gave general overview of Axxon (former ITV), developer of INTELLECT complex, a vendor whose major task is to provide its partners with a core of intellectual technology, and described the entire range of Axxon (former ITV) products for various applications with special stress to benefits of INTELLECT platform.

In his report he talked about distributed architecture of INTELLECT platform that enables integration with nearly any existing equipment and a wide range of information processing and transferring devices. Eugene enlightened in details system structure, features and key benefits of the complex, special purposed products created on the INTELLECT basis and its boundless integration opportunities. He also gave a short survey of completed projects and publications devoted to installations of the scalable security systems with application of Axxon (former ITV) products.
