In 2008 RMS Technology Solutions became a Generation 3 Capital portfolio company and was joined by [and merged with] Avrio Group in 2009 and is now known as Avrio RMS Group. Avrio RMS Group is a national leader in IP-surveillance solutions for the public safety market. The company designs, engineers and deploys turnkey wireless security solutions for municipalities and organizations with wide area surveillance needs.
A pioneer in the space, Avrio RMS Group created the nation’s first pole mounted wireless surveillance camera systems known as PODSS¨ (Portable Over Digital Surveillance Systems) and developed the nation’s most sophisticated wireless IP video network covering over 200 square miles.
In 2014 Avrio RMS Group was acquired along with PantaScene LLC (another Gen3 holding) by Hitachi Data Systems. Pantascene and Avrio solutions form a new public safety group within Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) whose mission is to make safer, smarter, more efficient cities. The group helps to deter and suppress crime by combining video with a wide variety of other sensor data to create a full operational picture – in other words, connected intelligence.
