NICE Recording Technology to Bolster Security at DFW Airport

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has placed a multimillion dollar order to expand its NICE implementation. As part of this initiative, the airport will also be expanding its audio recording capabilities, adding the NICE Inform multimedia solution, which enables authentic incident reconstruction through synchronization of voice recordings and video.

DFW will be deploying NICE's IP video surveillance solution and the NICE Inform incident information management solution. The expansion is part of a strategic modernization initiative to strengthen DFW's security, threat detection, emergency response, and risk mitigation capabilities. The NICE solutions will address DFW's growing security requirements while providing a foundation for DFW to migrate to IP video surveillance.

DFW ranks third among the world's busiest airports in aircraft movements and eighth in total passenger traffic, serving more than 56 million passengers a year. The DFW Airport covers more than 29.8 square miles, an area roughly the size of Manhattan, and encompasses five terminals, seven runways, three control towers and 155 gates. NICE's video surveillance solutions have been an integral component of DFW's Security Surveillance System for eight years.

When the project is complete, DFW will be able to centrally monitor, record, and manage all IP and analog cameras seamlessly in one system.DFW will also be upgrading its recording and incident management capabilities with the NICE Inform multimedia incident information management solution. The addition of NICE Inform means that DFW, for the first time, will be able to synchronize voice recordings and surveillance video for authentic, 360-degree incident reconstruction.

"As one the world's busiest airports and a gateway for many millions of passengers, DFW has built a reputation as a leader in airport security," said Yochai Rozenblat, CEO and President of NICE Americas, "We are honored that DFW has entrusted NICE with its security needs."

The NICE Security Offering enables capturing, analysis, and correlation of data from multiple sensors and systems, including audio, video, radio, geo-location and Web, providing a framework for fusing data silos into a single, holistic operational view
