North American Video (NAV) announces that the company has been awarded the contract to upgrade the video surveillance system at the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal (BAT) in New York City. The surveillance system upgrade to an IP-based system is the first phase of a multi-phase project slated for the landmark campus.

The project entails adding to the number of existing analog cameras with multiple IP cameras and transmitting video to the Army Terminal buildings via a wireless mesh. The upgraded system will include a Verint recording solution and virtual video wall for operator use. The peer-to-peer wireless mesh network is ideal for remote video monitoring as well as short-term video surveillance projects or mobile video surveillance applications.

Completed in 1919, the Brooklyn Army Terminal served as the country's largest military supply base through World War II. The Cass Gilbert-designed facility sits on Brooklyn's industrial waterfront and is owned by the City of New York and leased by the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Today, it houses dozens of commercial and industrial tenants, with significant room for expansion.

NAV also has been awarded a long term contract to service all camera, access control, alarm and e-phone systems for Colorado's Regional Transportation District (RTD) Light Rail system. The system currently has over 1,100 cameras and 150 card access doors with numerous expansion projects in the works.

“The award of this service contract is testimony to the high quality technical expertise that the NAV team has provided to RTD on integration projects over the last two years” said Jason Oakley, CEO of NAV. “Our team is committed to supporting RTD in their the goal of a providing a safe and secure light rail system for passengers and staff.”

As part of the contract NAV will station NAV personnel on-site to handle all service items that arise on any of RTD's light rail locations. The NAV contract calls for an increase in staff in 2012 to handle the new West Corridor. RTD's light rail system, servicing the central, southwest and southeast Denver metro areas, has five light rail lines with 37 stations. Next year, 14 more stations will be added to the system.

NAV continues to grow its service portfolio annually with the steady addition of new contracts. The company's previous work with the RTD entailed a reconfiguring of the existing video surveillance system from analog to a hybrid digital solution including implementation of a head-end digital matrix and integration to the regional command center. The project also called for installation of 170 new cameras at 18 transit station platforms; and switching of all transit station platforms to digital.

Encompassing all or part of eight counties, the District covers over 2,300 square miles and the RTD's services include a variety of transportation services including bus, light rail, para-transit and park-n-ride facilities.
