People screening camera can detect hidden objects

Building security is paramount, whether protecting bricks and mortar or the people located within.  Thruvision is a people-screening camera able to detect any type of object hidden under clothing. Widely deployed in high profile building entrances worldwide, Thruvision is not only capturing theft but also minimising public threat. Based on patented, passive terahertz technology, Thruvision is relied upon by leading risk management professionals to protect people and improve building security operations.

With public security and terrorist threat on the increase, it is vital that people remain safe in any shared building environment. Any public, or indeed private building (museums, libraries, offices) can represent a risk of concealed knives, guns or even explosives entering, which could result in a threatening or dangerous situation for the people inside.  Thruvision cameras have been developed to provide safe, fast and respectful security screening of people coming in or out of any building environment, for detecting weapons, or contraband such as cash and stolen goods, concealed under clothing.

Thruvision uses patented passive terahertz technology, developed by the British Government’s prestigious Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Unlike airport body-scanners, Thruvision uses “thermal contrast recognition” to provide a real-time video showing the size, shape and location of any object concealed in a person’s clothing at distances up to 10 metres. No radiation is emitted by Thruvision and no anatomical details of the person screened are seen.

Key benefits

  • Treats people with respect - no physical search needed
  • Fast throughput of people at any building entrance or exit
  • Effective detection of all items including knives, guns, explosives or stolen items
  • Harmless to people and completely non-intrusive
  • Can be deployed anywhere in less than 3 minutes

With over 300 units now sold, and manufacturing underway in both the UK and US, Thruvision has been successfully deployed in 18 countries and is being used for facility protection, customs and border control, mass transit and aviation security, and public area security screening. Thruvision is working with the US and British Governments to field the technology operationally after extensive testing that has proved its effectiveness.
