Texas airport expands use of BriefCam video analysis
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA), located in Austin, Texas, has expanded its use of BriefCam Syndex, doubling the amount of licenses to further increase security and operational productivity across the airport. Using BriefCam's technology, ABIA can rapidly review, analyze and investigate large amounts of video data for maximizing security, while using the same data to get better insights into operational activities.
Convergint has overseen the migration of ABIA to a unified access control platform based on Genetec Security Center with BriefCam Syndex embedded.
Tony Varco, vice-president of security for Convergint Technologies, said, “Our companies’ long-standing partnership has deepened as Video Synopsis has become more powerful, enabling us to meet customer needs not only for security, but for transportation, safe cities and enterprises.”
Amit Gavish, general manager, BriefCam North America, commented: “ABIA is a busy airport, providing service to 15 airlines and 48 destinations, alongside managing business, retail, ground transportation, parking and many other functions. BriefCam Syndex enables leveraging the huge amounts of already-available video data to expand its value beyond security, allowing the airport to easily control and optimize operations where needed.”
According to ABIA telecommunications supervisor Bryan Moore: “Using the Access Control System unified with Genetec Security Center, as well as BriefCam, can protect people and keep them where they need to be within our airport. So if you were to receive an alarm, it would automatically populate that camera in that location with Genetec Security Center. And within that, you can also use BriefCam technology, be able to slim it down, save time and keep people safe.”
Convergint Technologies designs, installs, and services integrated building systems including electronic security, fire alarm, and life safety systems.
