IPIX CommandView Systems Successful at 2004 G8 Summit.
OAK RIDGE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 10, 2004
IPIX Security (Nasdaq: IPIX), a premium supplier of video surveillance technology, today announced its CommandView(TM) Full-360 degree video surveillance systems were deployed for multiple applications at the 2004 G8 Summit, which wrapped up today on Sea Island, Ga.
"IPIX(TM) supplied 10 cameras to the G8 summit, an annual gathering of the world's most powerful nations including the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Russia. The cameras helped monitor events at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Ga., where the dignitaries arrived, as well as the entrance to the summit site and the rooms where the summit was being held," said Jim Griffin, general manager of IPIX Security. "We provided these units without charge since our goal wasn't to generate revenue from this event. It was to have CommandView Security systems tested in one of the world's most stringent and visible security environments."
"Many agencies depended on the cameras," said Spencer Geissinger, Deputy Executive Director of the 2004 G8 Summit. "The Secret Service utilized the IPIX camera feed in the multi-agency command center which had all the federal and the state law enforcement agencies. We used the cameras for both logistical and security reasons at the main security checkpoint. IPIX was an absolutely essential tool and I'm confident that it will be used at every Summit and high security event in the future."
"The IPIX cameras performed perfectly. You have to have equipment that is flawless, that's not going to break. When Air Force One arrives or President Putin arrives there is no time to fake it," said CIO Jim Ramsey, Jr., Lt. Colonel, Retired, Chief Information Officer for the G8 and past Head of Communications for the White House.
IPIX has been asked to meet with Olympics organizers directly following the summit regarding the Summer Games in Athens, Greece. IPIX has launched shipment of its security cameras to paying customers with 400 orders placed since the April 2004 launch.
