VidSys, a provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software that allows organizations to resolve business and security situations in real time, announced its involvement in the opening of one of the largest transportation command centers in North America - the Joint Transportation Management Center (JTMC) in Long Island City, New York.
The JTMC is focused on around-the-clock coordination and communication among the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Region 11, New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), New York Police Department (NYPD), the Federal Highway Administration and other partner agencies in the metropolitan area to manage daily transportation incidents and reduce congestion on some of the busiest expressways in the world. Additionally, it is designed to safely move people, goods, services and information vital to the economy through the State and City of New York.
VidSys PSIM software is at the heart of the JTMC in the Central Video and Control System (CVCS). The CVCS monitors and manages all incidents within the New York sub-region. The software collects, correlates and analyzes information from across multiple devices from different vendors and presents intelligent views of the situation to the center operators. The CVCS provides one common operating picture for the multi-agency coordination, empowering the JTMC operators to manage complex technologies and emergencies by enabling them to focus on the management of situations instead of technologies.
