Verint Systems announced London Overground Rail Operations (LOROL) is in the process of implementing the Nextiva IP-based video solution from Verint video intelligence solutions across 40 stations. The solution is being delivered in partnership with Amey, itself a key partner of LOROL and Network Rail.
LOROL, a joint venture between MTR of Hong Kong and Deutsche of Germany, was formed to create a transportation system for London. Verint will deploy more than 1,500 Nextiva network cameras integrated with its Nextiva video management software. The solution is designed to enhance passenger safety, deter vandalism and crime, and improve passenger rail travel experiences.
The Nextiva solution will be integrated to a series of platform-based passenger help-points across the network of stations, with video managed from a central control room in London. "LOROL selected Nextiva in August 2009 based on its proven application in the rail industry," said Alistair Shutler, Software Manager, consulting for Amey.
"Verint demonstrated the ability to provide end-to-end IP solutions and integrate with other technologies on the network," Shutler continued. "The technical understanding of IP and surveillance that Verint has demonstrated, combined with the quality, robustness and reliability of the technology, were key factors in its appointment."
