NICE Systems IP-based video solution enhances the safety and security at Shanghai Pudong International Airport. Located in the eastern part of Pudong district of Shanghai, China, Shanghai Pudong International Airport is a major international gateway into China, handling more than 17 million passengers on international flights in 2006. The airport is planning to increase its capacity with a total of three terminals, two satellite halls and five parallel runways, for a final capacity of 80 million passengers per year. According to NICE Systems, Shanghai Pudong International Airport has placed a 7-digit order to provide its IP-based video solution with content analytics. Shanghai Pudong Airport will use the NICE solution to enhance the safety and security for a capacity of tens of millions passengers per year. Pudong will also apply NICE’s capabilities for simultaneous advanced video content analytics to give its site managers the power to identify risk in real time, make optimal decisions, and take action that improves security efficiency. The NICE solution will enable Pudong with real-time threat detection capabilities, including automatic detection of unauthorized entry into secured areas, counting the number of people across multiple entries/exits, with trends analysis, and detection of illegally parked vehicles. “We are very excited to be a part of this important project and deliver Insight from Interactions to help increase the security of Shanghai’s important airport,” said Doron Ben Sira, President of NICE APAC. “This win is another confirmation of NICE’s value proposition in offering airport security with advanced IP-based, video content analytics to the world’s major airports.”
