SUNNYVALE, Calif. and LIVERPOOL, England, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Vidient Systems, the technology leader in intelligent video, announced that a major UK airport has completed the deployment of MFlow - an automated exit lane security system using Vidient's SmartCatch video analytics suite, while a second UK airport, Newcastle International Airport, has just purchased another such system.
The SmartCatch system is a major component of the MFlow Exit Lanes solution developed by Human Recognition Systems (HRS), an award winning biometric and identity management consultancy and system integrator from the UK.
The MFlow Exit Lane solution, using the SmartCatch system, has been proven for use in UK airports after successfully meeting rigorous testing against the UK Department for Transport (DfT) security regulations. The solution automatically identifies people attempting to enter through the exit lane and, upon detection, immediately activates an escalating series of alerts to allow an operator to respond to the emerging threats appropriately. The passengers are initially alerted via audio message, and if the behavior continues, maximum alert will activate doors to close.
Currently in operation in several terminals at the latest airport deployment, the automated system improves security protection with continuous real-time monitoring and alerting, ensuring the smooth flow of passengers, and removing the reliance on manual security checks.
The SmartCatch Exit Lane analytic automatically identifies exit lane breach attempts through real-time analysis of CCTV video. The software accurately detects violations even at times of high exit traffic flow and when the intruder is barely visible. As well as monitoring the flow of passengers, the system detect
