. has announced that London Overground Rail Operations Ltd. (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 Corporation of Hong Kong and Deutsche Bahn AG of Germany, was formed to create a world-class transportation system for London. Verint will deploy more than 1,500 Nextiva IP 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, according to Alistair Shutler, software manager, consulting for Amey. "Verint demonstrated the ability to provide end-to-end IP solutions and integrate seamlessly with other technologies on the network," he explains. "The technical understanding of IP and CCTV that Verint has demonstrated, combined with the quality, robustness and reliability of the technology, were key factors in its appointment."
"Our expertise in this sector, working with some of the biggest names in the rail industry across Europe, has been recognized by London Overground Rail Operations, and we are delighted to be working together on this initiative," says David Parcell, managing director, EMEA, Verint Systems.
