Digital Barriers has announced the acquisition of Essential Viewing Systems, a UK-based provider of surveillance products that are capable of streaming real-time video and related data over cellular and other wireless networks where bandwidth limitations can seriously compromise video quality and equipment control. Essential Viewing’s products can be rapidly deployed and are especially well suited to covert surveillance, specialist areas of defence and law enforcement, public safety including transportation security, and deployment within remote or hostile environments.
Essential Viewing was founded in 1999, utilising intellectual property under an exclusive license from Scotland’s University of Strathclyde. More than 10 years of ongoing technical development and product engineering refinements have created a market-leading technology product and a network of partners, distributors and integrators that are highly complementary to Digital Barriers. The existing management and product development teams will remain with Essential Viewing upon completion of the acquisition.
Digital Barriers believes that the high quality of the Essential Viewing products and technology will enhance and further differentiate its offerings to customers across the surveillance market. It will provide a broad-based capability that will help organisations in a diverse range of end markets, with particularly strong opportunities in Asia Pacific and North America. This acquisition is an exciting step that brings Digital Barriers a truly compelling technology with great potential for the international homeland security market.
