Magal's DreamBox to safeguard water supply

Sponsored by

YAHUD, Israel, Dec. 21, 2006 -- Magal today announced that a major water authority based on the East Coast of the United States has selected Magal's DreamBox solution to safeguard the utility's multiple-sites from hazardous threats and malicious activity. The order was placed by a nationwide system integrator, which will also install and provide full support for the product.

DreamBox is a state-of-the-art, intelligent video, audio and sensors management platform. As an integrated solution of hardware and software products that performs multiple critical security functions in one box, DreamBox offers local and networked digital video and audio recording (DVR/NVR), intelligent video analysis (IVA), virtual video matrix switching, two-way audio and site security management.

DreamBox helps high-security facilities -- such as airports, seaports, train stations, refinery facilities and utility companies -- increase safety and security, streamline operations and maintenance, improve productivity and reduce overall expenditures.

"Water supplies are particularly vulnerable to hazardous threats - ranging from terrorist attacks to accidental contamination. While traditional perimeter protection measures, such as fence and ground sensors, are not viable in this environment, risk can still be mitigated by leveraging advanced Intelligent Video for perimeter protection," said Izhar Dekel, CEO of Magal. "We are very excited that our DreamBox solution was recently selected by this major US water utility. The utility will benefit from the full capabilities of our advanced solution, including intelligent video analysis, digital recording, security management and seamless integration with other security technologies, such as radar-based sensors."

Dekel continued, "DreamBox is widely accepted and utilized in international markets and this new order demonstrates that our solution is gaining traction in the US. The type of project that is ideally suited for DreamBox tends to have a long sales cycle, and after selling in the US market for over a year now, we are beginning to see the fruits of our labor pay off with a number of new projects. We are equally encouraged by the positive feedback we have received from prospective customers who have field-tested our product and by our pipeline for DreamBox sales in 2007. We look forward to the coming year and to continuing helping clients leverage our advanced video security solution to meet their demanding security needs and requirements."
