|NICE Situator was selected as the centrepiece of the integrated management centre that will oversee safety and security
NICE Systems recently announced that a large city in Brazil has implemented NICE Situator to help secure its community and next week’s 2014 FIFA World Cup, taking place in Brazil from June 12 to July 13, 2014. NICE Systems will continue working with local authorities following the tournament as part of a broader safe city initiative, to protect its millions of citizens.
NICE Situator was selected as the centrepiece of the integrated management centre that will oversee safety and security in one of the football tournament’s host cities. The centre brings together 24 government agencies that will leverage NICE Situator to enhance situational awareness, decision-making and incident response. Should an incident occur, security operators will have instant access to real-time video from hundreds of video cameras along with an automated response plan.
“We’re proud to have been selected for this safe city initiative, which involves securing one of the biggest sporting events in the world,” said Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE Security Group. “NICE’s experience and technology makes us uniquely equipped to support a multifaceted security initiative of this level. This comes on the heels of our successful safe city initiative with Sochi, Russia.”
At the conclusion of the project, NICE Situator will be the centrepiece of a comprehensive city-wide solution that integrates multiple video surveillance systems, including NiceVision, and connects to thousands of cameras and sensors. The solution will correlate data from behavioural analytics software, social media analysis, access control, and fire and intrusion detection systems. Operators will use Situator to monitor and manage security at the football stadium, hotels, roads, transit system, airport, and other locations in the city. The solution will also integrate computer aided dispatching, helping to manage incidents that are escalated by emergency service centre operators.
