VIVOTEK announced that it will feature its acclaimed cloud-based video-centric safety and security solution, VORTEX, during GSX 2023, held in Dallas from Sept. 11-13 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth #3010. VORTEX was launched in the United States late in 2022.
“VORTEX has been incredibly successful since its launch last year,” said Albert Lin, who was recently named VIVOTEK USA General Manager, beginning on August 1. “Since early 2000, we have witnessed multiple generational technology shifts in the industry. Almost with certainty in every shift, we see new products introduced, new business models emerged, and the competition landscape changed. VORTEX is VIVOTEK’s next generation cloud platform that meshes video data, AI, big data, and cloud into a cohesive and powerful safety and security solution.”
At GSX 2023, VORTEX safety and security service introduces a new feature called “Profile Search”. This exciting new function allows users to create a profile with the image(s) of a person’s face and then search that person by those face image(s) within a profile. The profile’s face image(s) can be uploaded by a user and can be searched in the recorded footage within a single site or across multiple sites. VORTEX’s Profile Search further improves the usability of AI technology, reduces cost and overhead on forensic data collection, and empowers security integrators to modernize their security operation.
Also during GSX 2023, VIVOTEK adds the MS930-EHV to the VORTEX edge hardware portfolio, providing an extensive class-leading camera that redefines the systems’ possibilities. Equipped with WDR Pro technology, two wide-angle lenses, advanced electronic image stitching, and high-resolution dual-sensor design, this 8MP 180 degree unlocks a higher vertical field of view (FOV), providing unmatched video coverage. This expanded FOV empowers users to capture crucial evidence below the camera’s installation point, another testament to VIVOTEK’s capabilities of offering a wide range of edge camera options for its cloud-based platform and service.
“VORTEX is a comprehensive end-to-end AI surveillance solution that seamlessly integrates deep-learning-based network cameras, cloud video management software, and caters to the diverse needs of business applications,” Lin concluded. “We are excited to introduce these new features and hardware at GSX 2023, continuously adding new value for VORTEX, VIVOTEK partners, and users through this evolving platform.”

Lin was most recently Senior Vice President Strategy with Turing Video, Inc. where he led GTM and strategy execution for Turing Vision and its data-driven AI platform.
“I am proud to take on this new role with VIVOTEK USA and help guide the company and its products and services to the next level in this very important market,” added Lin. “VIVOTEK has an impressive catalog of cutting edge technologies in both its physical products as well as its enterprise software and cloud services.
