OV Security Live Video X‑Ray System.

OV Security™, formerly OpenVision, is a portable, live video security x-ray system that has helped bomb squads and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams quickly inspect and detect high potential hazards for nearly fifteen years.

OV Security has a small radiation footprint to help you rapidly assess packages and unattended items for "threat/no threat" in and out of crowds without drawing attention. Real-time live video, still images, and targeting images provide vital information in determining the next step once a threat is identified, potentially eliminating the need for additional manual approaches.

Why OV Security?

    Saving Time Saves Lives

    Deploy in under two minutes to minimize risk and expedite inspection without evacuation. Real-time live video x-ray enables rapid assessment of unattended items in public areas or discreet VIP protective details.

    Sweep from the Ground Up

    A unique imager explicitly designed for security enables the technician to sweep the entire item of interest from the ground up. There are no dead spaces near the ground or flat surfaces, as is typical of standard digital panels designed for medical and industrial scanners.

  • Icon showing safe radiation footprint


    Highly collimated x-rays and specially designed shielding reduces your radiation footprint to a few feet, enabling handheld operation while ensuring public safety.

    Expert Support

    Application support and training are provided by a retired US Army SFC EOD technician with many years of experience to get you up and running quickly.

Event/Crowd Security

For nearly fifteen years, OV Security has been deployed at airports, major sporting events, and VIP events to perform threat/no threat sweeps. For example, at the Calgary Stampede, OV Security helped determine "no threat" from an unattended bag found in a crowd of over 400,000 people.

Secondary Sweeps

Secondary sweeps are critical for thoroughly clearing areas for potential dangers after an initial threat happens. Bomb technicians utilized OV Security to investigate and clear suspicious packages, bags, and cars after the Aurora Theater Shooting, Orlando Pulse Nightclub Shooting, Austin Serial Bombings, and Boston Marathon Bombings.

What the Experts Say.

  • "[OV Security] is easy to get a quick x-ray as opposed to having to go with some of the mobile systems that take a few minutes to take an x-ray and run the imaging plates through the system. "
