Cernium and MyerEmco Partner to Bring Archerfish Mobile Video Intelligence to Washington Metro Area

May 5, 2009

Leading Retailer Joins Expanding National Network to Bring Award-Winning Monitoring Solution to Area Home and Business Owners

RESTON, Va., May 5 /PRNewswire/ – Cernium Corporation, the leading developer of video analytics-enabled products, announced today that Archerfish(R), the first and only mobile video intelligence (MVI) solution, will now also be available to consumers in the Greater Washington, DC area through MyerEmco AudioVideo, a leading consumer electronics retailer serving the region for more than 50 years.

Archerfish gives consumers an innovative and convenient way to remotely keep an eye on their homes and businesses, no matter where they are physically located. Using a combination of video cameras, an Archerfish SmartBox(TM) (an intelligent device with advanced video technology), and the Archerfish SmartPortal(TM) (a custom web portal), Archerfish ‘watches’ businesses and homes for events users define as important, such as children arriving home from school or an unwelcome intruder. When a defined event occurs, Archerfish notifies users by forwarding event text and video to their mobile phone, email inbox or the Archerfish SmartPortal. Archerfish helps users know what’s going on with the people and places that matter most. Unlike other monitoring products, Archerfish does all the hard work, pushing critical, visual information as events of interest occur, freeing users from watching hours of video. Archerfish debuted at the International Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, where it was an Innovations Design and Engineering Award Honoree in the Integrated Home Systems product category.

“Archerfish has major appeal for consumers who want timely, relevant, visual information about the people and places that matter most to them, no matter where they may be,” said Craig Chambers, president and CEO, Cernium Corporation. “Residents of the DC area are apt to be busy professionals or business owners with active lives that cross Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Thanks to the professionals at MyerEmco Home Security, consumers in our own backyard now have an added opportunity to own this unique and powerful solution.”

“At MyerEmco, we offer comprehensive services – from product selection to expert installation – to ensure our customers are getting the best solutions for their unique needs,” said Scott Miller, vice president of sales, MyerEmco. “We’re pleased to introduce Archerfish to the DC metropolitan area because it’s not only an exciting product, but it will help our customers stay in control of and on top of their busy lives in a way they have not been able to before.”
