Paramus, New Jersey, July 2, 2015 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that it is the winner of a 2015 Airport, Seaport, Border Security award from Government Security News (GSN). NICE Suspect Search was recognized as the Best Video Analytics Solution in the surveillance systems category.
NICE Suspect Search is a patent-pending video analytics technology that can quickly locate and retrace the movements of a suspect, lost child, or other person of interest within a video surveillance network. Video footage from different cameras and time frames can be reviewed in just minutes, as the system automatically filters out 95 percent of irrelevant images. In addition to achieving faster response times, organizations are able to restore normal operations quicker following a breach to a sensitive area. Digitally stamped images, video, and related location information associated with each search can easily be shared with police departments and district attorneys as part of forensic investigations.
According to GSN, the awards program “demonstrates the spectacular scientific achievements and dedication to homeland security that are shared by the public-private partnership of vendor companies and federal, state and local government agencies.”
“NICE Systems has been a frequent winner in GSN’s homeland security awards, and we’re very pleased to extend the recognition to the company’s technological excellence in the domain of airport, seaport and border security,” said Adrian Courtenay, CEO of World Business Media, LLC, which publishes Government Security News. “NICE Suspect Search stands out for its practical application of video analytics to significantly minimize search times to enhance security and overall operations.”
Moti Shabtai, General Manager, Physical Security, NICE, said: “NICE Suspect Search has proven its broad applicability across a range of scenarios in various sectors. This accolade from Government Security News adds to the global recognition
that we’ve received for this solution since its launch last year. This is further testament to NICE’s leadership and innovation, and its commitment to helping both private organizations and government-level institutions safeguard both people and assets.”
