CUPERTINO, CA -- BroadWare Technologies, Inc., the leader in distributed video surveillance, has partnered with ARINC Incorporated, the world leader in transportation communications and systems engineering, to increase the responsiveness and scalability of surveillance and security systems for organizations that face increasing security challenges. This new partnership enables ARINC to deliver more powerful security solutions for its airport, rail and other transportation customers, and supports BroadWare's expansion into new security markets such as nuclear power generation plants.
"ARINC is a trusted integrator with a superior reputation and dominant presence in airport and rail markets, while BroadWare's technology solves pressing video, operational, and security problems," said Peter McDonald, Senior Director of Business Development for BroadWare. "Their depth of experience and market-specific expertise will assist BroadWare in delivering new technologies to solve customer problems and in pursuing new market opportunities more effectively."
ARINC is integrating the advanced digital BroadWare Media Platform, which delivers live and archived distributed video surveillance capabilities, with the ARINC Advanced Information Management (AIM(r)) security platform. The result is an easy-to-use integrated interface for all control and security operations. The combination of these two complementary platforms will allow ARINC's customers to instantly access every video camera on a network from every AIM workstation in each facility, resulting in a single wired and wireless solution for viewing, storing and managing real-time video among numerous cameras and users. Together, these consolidated detection and notification solutions will enable ARINC AIM customers to respond more effectively and recover more rapidly from security threats and events.
The ARINC AIM platform provides centralized control of a broad range of security technologies and functions including intrusion detection systems, fire control systems, access control systems, intelligent video analytics and biometric devices. Like the AIM system, BroadWare's video surveillance platform is based on open standards and is optimized to accept new devices and applications to view, store and manage real-time video in a networked environment.
"Starting today, our integrated AIM security capability raises the bar for video performance of all centralized security management systems," said Denny Lengyel, ARINC Vice President, Surface Transportation and Energy Systems. "Because it is based on open systems, a joint ARINC / BroadWare solution helps customers dramatically improve the responsiveness of their security and surveillance teams today, and enables them to reliably and cost-efficiently expand their security operations in the future."
The joint ARINC / BroadWare solution is a highly cost-effective way for users to take advantage of the full range of new IP video technology becoming available. It creates a unique, low-risk bridge to next-generation products, achieves better bandwidth management than other solutions and offers a superior path to incorporating multiple technologies in one system.
"Our partnership with ARINC exemplifies the growing adoption of BroadWare's technology among top-tier system integrators who specialize in building network video and information distribution solutions specifically designed to support responsiveness, decision making and flexibility," said Bill Stuntz, CEO of BroadWare. "Unlike conventional proprietary systems that lock users into specific hardware and software, the BroadWare platform enables systems integrators like ARINC to easily integrate their choice of third-party technologies, while designing systems that scale massively and evolve easily as new technologies are introduced."
