See What's Happening Onboard Fleets and Within Terminals

Omnicast IP video surveillance system lets mass transit organizations get a full bird's-eye-view of their operations, with access to video from onboard their fleet and within their terminals from one platform. Read more about the global mass transit market.

Innate integration with Synergis access control restricts access within terminal buildings and Sipelia Communications Management module lets you speak directly with cardholders, or drivers. Unifying many other systems within one platform is a cost-effective option to multi-system management.

Mass Transit Organizations Achieve Better Coverage with Omnicast

Customers such as Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority have installed Omnicast onboard 225 buses. The onboard system provides live access to the operations control center and the MBTA police dispatch, including in-cruiser officers who respond to emergency calls.

Why Onboard Surveillance Is Effective for MBTA

For Kenneth Sprague, Deputy Chief, MBTA Investigative Services Division, the advantage is clear: "Whether it's identifying a car in the vicinity or verifying a suspect's alibi, we have the ability to view, validate and retrieve information in a timely manner."

3 Reasons Mass Transit Customers Choose Omnicast

Learn how Genetec can help you unify your fixed and mobile video systems.

With a server-based installation, you can choose your cameras and connect them all back to your onboard server where video is managed and stored by your Omnicast system. You can then automatically offload the video back to a central server through a wireless network for long-term archiving and video verification.

Not all the video has to be offloaded. Integrated bus-driver panic buttons can automatically add bookmarks and only those events can be offloaded once the vehicle is at the station. Higher resolutions can also be associated to events, to maximize onboard storage.

What's the result? You get a powerful onboard surveillance system, benefit from added flexibility during future hardware upgrades, and run other applications like in-vehicle advertising on the same server.

With a serverless installation, you can select IP cameras with edge-recording capabilities and store video directly on the camera. Omnicast's Video Trickling feature will then enable the wireless transfer of the video to your central server so you can access recordings from your entire fleet, instantly.

What's the end result? You get a reliable and advanced IP video management system, reduce your total cost of ownership and save on hardware maintenance for years to come.

Catch Every Event. See It Clearly. Always.

Omnicast, the video surveillance system of Security Center, our unified security platform, has been chosen by many leading international airports such as Aéroports de Paris, Denver International Airport and Gimpo International Airport.

Reasons Airports Choose Omnicast IP Video Surveillance

  

Distribute Costs and Improve Airport Security by Sharing Video

In an article titled Blue Sky Thinking, Mr. Bjorn O. Gunderson, Advisor GMI, explains how Schiphol Amsterdam Airport shares costs with many different entities within the airport, adding: "The Genetec Federation™ feature helped us merge all independent systems into one, and provide specific agencies with the rights to manage them as one from a centralized location."

Unification Offers Greater Cost Efficiencies over PSIM

Using the Software Development Kit, other airports develop custom applications or unify third-party systems such as perimeter detection and analytics tools to identify intrusions and reduce false alarms. To increase efficiency, airports use interactive maps to handle alarms, and find cameras and become more effective when responding to varying threat levels

Learn how Genetec can help you strengthen your ability to handle the unexpected.

Bring Greater Access Control Flexibility to Your Terminal Doors

Migrating to an IP-based access control system such as Synergis, the access control system of Security Center, our unified security platform, gives you greater flexibility at the door. Watch this short video to get a quick overview of Synergis.

Take a Long-Term Approach to Savings

Synergis is open, meaning this IP access control system doesn't lock you into any proprietary hardware. More airports are making a move away from a closed system and embracing the many cost-saving benefits of Synergis:

Unify Video and Intercom with Access Control for Quicker Response

The unified security interface is easy to use. Become more efficient when addressing access denied events, automatically viewing video upon alarms. Save time by using built-in two way SIP-based intercom with the Sipelia Communications Management module to speak directly with cardholders without needing to dispatch personnel.

Generate More Parking Revenue with Efficient Enforcement

AutoVu, the license plate recognition system of Security Center, our unified security platform, helps airports better manage their parking facilities and pro-actively identify incoming threats.

Unique Parking Applications for Airports include:

  • Automated and ticketless parking applications
  • Wanted felon or stolen vehicle identification
  • Lot counts and data collection

Ticketless Parking Reduces Overhead Costs

With AutoVu Sharp LPR cameras installed at entry and exit points of parking garages, you know exactly when a vehicle entered, where they parked and if they left. With many enclosed parking garages, the City of Perth recently implemented ticketless parking using AutoVu and saved 25,000 AUD per car park annually.

Pro-Actively Address Threats Before They Reach The Terminal

For an added layer of security, AutoVu can also alert security teams of wanted suspects or stolen vehicles that are approaching the airport, so you can dispatch police to proactively intervene.

Collect More Data to Improve Parking Operations

Mounting AutoVu LPR cameras on patrol vehicles also helps parking authorities collect vehicle inventory within a fraction of the time AutoVu can also be used as a more cost-effective approach to collecting data about facility usage and incoming vehicle traffic.

Consultant, Kimley-Horn, discusses "can defer those cost between data collection and the enforcement/scofflaw applications" and make improvements based off the accumulated data. Read the full blog.

Choose the Hardware That Suits Your Budget and Applications

Synergis is open, meaning this IP access control system doesn't lock you into any proprietary hardware. Using the Synergis Cloud Link appliance, ports can choose from many different options, including:

Build Credential-Authorized Applications for Tighter Security

Manchester Terminal, a private marine terminal in Houston, Texas, implemented a government-run security program called TWIC (Transportation Worker Identification Credential) which provides a tamper-resistant biometric credential to maritime workers requiring unescorted access to secure areas of port facilities.

"The TWIC-compliance aspect has made it much easier for our guards to conduct proper authentication," said Vincent Pilegge, President at Manchester Terminal LLC. Read more.

AutoVu Logo

Track who Is Coming and Going from Your Port

AutoVu, the license plate recognition system of Security Center, our unified security platform, enables you to track every single vehicle that enters your facility.

It captures the license plate, color image, date and time of every vehicle that crosses the LPR camera's field of view. This provides you with critical information to properly address cargo theft or fraud, and to help freight companies justify liability claims.

Unified Monitoring Helps Validate Facts During Investigations

AutoVu can also be unified with video surveillance, so not only do you get concise vehicle information, but you can retrieve video linked to each license plate read to verify facts such as driver identity.

Boost Automation of Authorized Vehicle Entry at Gates

AutoVu LPR system can also enable to the automatic identification or white-listed or black-listed vehicle and unified with access control for automated entry of permitted vehicles.
