Adesta to Provide Intelligent Video at Port of Houston

Integrator to deploy system for managing video, enabling automated detection


Nebraska-based security systems integrator Adesta has landed a $1.4 million contract from the Port of Houston Authority to deploy an intelligent video security surveillance solution.

According to a statement from Adesta, the system adds to the existing video surveillance infrastructure and integrates with the existing access control system. The system will provide continual surveillance at the Port of Houston's terminals, and is designed to use automatic event detection and response to aid the port's existing security programs. The video analytics system is expected to monitor outputs on 150 cameras at the terminals.

"The new intelligent video surveillance system will incorporate the functions of video management, video analytics and access control into a single system," said Bob Sommerfel, Adesta's president, of the new project. "The project provides a tighter integration, increased reliability and expanded features for the Port's command and control system. It will add efficiency to PHA's emergency response capability."
