Welcome to another edition of PowerTalk. I’m your host Chris Versace, editor of the investment newsletter PowerTrend Profits, and these are my one-on-one conversations with the movers and shakers in the business world that take you behind the scenes and in the know. Be sure to check out ChrisVersace.com for more on PowerTrends and past editions of PowerTalk.

Since we started PowerTalk back in late 2012, I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my one-on-one conversations with Steve Forbes, Dr. John Lott, Smith & Wesson CEO James Debney, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and dozens upon dozens more with you.

Looking at what we have coming up in the following months, I can honestly say we are just getting started. So sit back, relax and get ready to once again go behind the scenes and in the know.

As we get started today, let me share an interesting factoid with you.

Internet backbone company Cisco Systems (CSCO) sees video becoming a key driver of Internet traffic, and, with more and more devices equipped with cameras, it’s easy to see how. It’s not just smartphones and tablets — there is an increasing demand for video surveillance from retailers, banks and other companies and even law enforcement.

With this exploding amount of data in general and with all that video being created, uploaded and shared, a key question is: how can consumers and companies harness that data?

Joining me to talk about that opportunity today on PowerTalk is Al Shipp, the CEO of 3VR. 3VR provides value by enabling organizations to search, mine and leverage video to bolster security, identify and mitigate fraud and better serve customers.

A seasoned technology veteran, Al joined 3VR from Apple (AAPL), where he built a world-class sales and marketing group and led the Enterprise Division to be one of Apple’s most profitable business units. Prior to Apple, he served in senior leadership roles at Critical Path, Inktomi Corporation, BEA Systems and IBM (IBM).

You may be asking yourself: who is using 3VR’s technology? They include organizations such as Hilton, T-Mobile, Chico’s FAS, the Elk Grove California Police Department, Union Savings Bank and many more across a number of industries.

After listening to Al and what 3VR is working on, you may think twice before walking out with that pen you just used to sign your name on the credit card receipt.
