Vidsys Working with City of Houston to Provide Security During Super Bowl LI

Vidsys, a leading global software technology manufacturer of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) and Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) software, has announced, as part of an ongoing effort with the City of Houston’s Public Safety Video Initiative, that it will support security efforts through situation management and data correlation capabilities during Super Bowl LI, 2017, which takes place on February 5th, 2017.

The annual Super Bowl attracts massive crowds that create logistical, safety and traffic challenges on an enormous scale. Last year’s event in San Francisco attracted over a million visitors.

Special events require the mobilization of multiple departments and organizations within a city or region as well as a system that can manage and oversee all aspects of the operations. The Vidsys platform is a key component in managing events of this magnitude. It collects, analyzes, verifies, resolves and tracks information from multiple, disparate subsystems using open architecture standards to help mitigate and manage threats and risks. The software works directly with special response groups and connects command and control center communications and video footage, enabling authorized users from any location to view and manage situations in real-time.

Vidsys’ technology allows the City of Houston to share video and other important data with security teams around the city, including the Houston Police Department (HPD), Houston Fire Department (HFD), Houston Emergency Center’s Office of Emergency Management and Real-time Crime Center, other  public safety agencies, as well as major venues (stadiums, the convention center, medical centers, and others).

The City utilizes Vidsys on a daily basis to provide situational awareness, collaborate and share video footage, and support incident management and response with other area public safety stakeholders. Vidsys is unique in that it supports a variety of government agencies charged with protecting Houston’s citizens, ranging from law enforcement and emergency responders to traffic management, by enabling their collaboration through a common user-friendly interface.

“The City of Houston is a long-valued customer, and our team looks forward to supporting their city-wide security and smart city efforts during the Super Bowl this year,” said James I. Chong, CEO and Founder of Vidsys. “While large events are a logistical challenge, having the right technology, people, and process, along with a strong partnership reinforces a well-executed program.”
