Denver RTD is expanding its implementation and will now use multiple elements of the NICE product portfolio to meet the challenges of public transit, securing people, operations, and assets
RA’ANANA, ISRAEL, April 11, 2012 NICE (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that the Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD), the public transit system for greater metro Denver (CO), is expanding its implementation of NICE video security solutions to the West Rail Line, Union Station, and the Denver Civic Center.
The first two projects stem from Denver RTD’s FasTracks plan, a major program which will extend Metro Denver’s entire mass transit system. In addition, Denver RTD also purchased the NICE IP radio recording solution and NICE Inform, an information management solution designed to capture, consolidate and manage voice, video, and other multimedia, for complete debriefing and investigation.
Denver RTD has been a NICE customer since 2001 and with the expansion, Denver RTD will use the NICE video surveillance solution to monitor, manage and record more than one thousand video surveillance cameras at dozens of light rail stations, Park-n-Ride facilities and bus transfer stations.
The Denver RTD Transit Police conducts over 5,000 video investigations a year, and its 2,348-square mile service area encompasses 40 municipalities in six counties plus two city/county jurisdictions. The Denver Police Department is also linked into the system and can view live video feeds. Local law enforcement agencies routinely use video from NiceVision for their investigations as well. NiceVision has helped solve numerous crimes, both within the transit system and off property.
“We are proud to see the long-standing relationship we have with Denver RTD continuing to grow,” said Guy Yaniv, General Manager, Surveillance Solutions, Security Group at NICE. “This further expansion of the NICE solutions complements the other parts of our portfolio already installed at Denver RTD for addressing security, safety and operational risks.”
The NICE Security Offering addresses the needs of governments and enterprises with intent-based solutions for fighting crime and terror, by anticipating, managing and mitigating safety, security and operational risks. The solution enables capture, analysis and correlation of data from multiple sensors and systems, including audio, video, radio, geo-location and web, providing a framework for fusing data silos into a single, holistic operational view. NICE Security solutions empower organizations to act effectively in real time to prevent, manage and investigate incidents, ensuring fast resolution and debriefing, and continuous security improvements. NICE Security solutions are deployed worldwide in transportation systems, critical infrastructures, city centers and enterprise campuses.
