Delta Community Credit Union Takes Security To The Next Level With Verint Systems' ATM Teller Capture Platform
Delta Community Credit Union Takes Security To The Next Level With Verint Systems' ATM Teller Capture Platform

The company: Delta Community Credit Union Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Delta Community Credit Union is one of the state's largest financial institutions. Founded in 1940, it serves as a not-for profit, state-chartered credit union whose mission is to provide high-quality, fairly-priced financial services to its members. Delta Community Credit Union has more than $3.3 billion in assets and serves over 191,000 members. Its operations include 21 retail branch locations, cutting-edge online services, more than 40 branch-based automated teller machines, and over 57,000 surcharge-free network ATMs nationwide. The opportunity In support of its growth strategy and security focus, Delta Community Credit Union sought to invest in a state-of-the-art, networked IP video solution that would accommodate its expanding branch and ATM operations. In doing so, key criteria in its technology selection included technology that could: Deliver robust surveillance/data capture capabilities and intelligence to its entire system of ATM and teller operations Monitor activities in bank branches and ATM kiosks Support fraud investigation Help ensure safe and secure environments for credit union members and employees The solution Delta Community Credit Union selected Nextiva® IP video solution from Verint® Video Intelligence Solutions™ and later extended its investment to also include the portfolio's Nextiva NetDVR™ II and MicroDVR™ II offerings. The bottom line Delta Community Credit Union has successfully leveraged Verint networked IP video technology since 2003 Delta Community Credit Union has successfully leveraged Verint networked IP video technology since 2003 when it replaced its legacy VCR systems with Verint networked digital video recorders (DVRs). The migration introduced the ability for the financial services organization to monitor ATM transaction data and video centrally with greater reliability and security, as well as more rapidly detect and investigate fraud. Based on the greater security, intelligence and efficiencies introduced through its original Nextiva implementation, extending its deployment to include Nextiva NetDVR II and MicroDVR II was a logical progression in support of the organization's mission-critical security and loss prevention initiatives. "Delta Community Credit Union is committed to being a technologically innovative financial institution that offers its members best-in-class service in a secure environment," says Gail Ruppersburg, physical security specialist of properties and facilities, Delta Community Credit Union. "Verint solutions continue to meet the high standards of our members and employees." Taking security to the next level Nextiva's NetDVR II and MicroDVR II solutions deliver robust surveillance and data capture capabilities to Delta Community Credit Union's entire system of ATM and teller operations. With the Nextiva network video recorders, the team at Delta Community Credit Union captures high-quality video images from the embedded operating system, optimizes bandwidth and storage utilisation, leverages flexible video search capabilities, and benefits from programmable video retention and storage for lower cost of ownership and operation, along with superior security and reliability. Nextiva's NetDVR II and MicroDVR II solutions deliver robust surveillance and data capture capabilities "Soon after installing the NetDVR II and MicroDVR II, we had a counterfeit check incident. Within 15 minutes, we burned images of the offender to a disk and handed it over to police. The images went on to help apprehend the suspect attempting fraud at another financial institution," says Ruppersburg. Steady growth and a commitment to providing a safe and secure banking environment accelerated Delta Community Credit Union's selection of Verint's networked DVR platform. With industry-leading video/data interfaces to ATM, teller, alarm and other enterprise systems, Nextiva DVRs provide a more complete overview of bank activity, money centers and ATM kiosks, and help protect Delta's people, property and assets. "Nextiva system-wide health monitoring and diagnostics give us peace of mind. We are able to immediately know if a unit is not operating properly so we can take corrective action. With our previous VCR system, we may not know about a problem until an incident arose, and then it was too late," adds Ruppersburg. The Verint Nextiva portfolio also supports Delta Community Credit Union in its branch expansion within grocery stores owned by a major U.S. food retailer. "The Verint system has streamlined our security budget. We've created a blueprint so that in-store installation is seamless. Nextiva continues to be an all around cost-saver and time-saver," adds Ruppersburg. Since 2003, Verint has delivered robust surveillance and data capture capabilities to Delta Community Credit Union. As such, the Verint Nextiva portfolio is a fundamental part of the bank's core focus on providing its members best-in-class service in a secure environment.

Verint Nextiva™ And City Center Security For The 21st Century
Verint Nextiva™ And City Center Security For The 21st Century

How the city of Sofia in Bulgaria is working to protect its citizens and make safe its streets  Commercial city centers with millions of inhabitants and visitors and as many cars, face particular challenges when it comes to policing to increase safety and security and maintain peace on the streets.  After all, you can't put a police officer on every street corner.  Or can you? Increasingly, CCTV camera systems are taking the place of the patrolling officer, and becoming their eyes, and even ears, on the street.  But whereas in the past, there may have been a controller on every camera, these days it is increasingly important to put intelligence into these complex systems through software, so that the camera networks can support and alert the teams responsible for security when needed, without requiring constant human surveillance. Nowhere is this approach more apparent than in the city of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria in the Balkans.  Sofia is home to around 2 million people and a million cars.  In the past 10 years the population has doubled and along with it, the number of vehicles on the streets, dramatically increasing the load on the city's police force.  As a result, in 2005, the Ministry of Interior contracted to implement a fully automated CCTV system to support the policing of the city. The goal was to cover all major city intersections, all entrance/exit roads to the city, the ring road around the city, the center and the major public places with an intelligent real-time operating system.  The system integrates CCTV cameras, number-plate recognition, face recognition, speed limit and red-light violations registration, centralized traffic lights manage­ment and more. The initial project has covered an area of around 2 km in the heart of the city with more than 100 CCTV cameras, 60 number-plate recognition cameras and six face recognition cameras.  The system monitors seven major road intersections and most of the main government buildings. The solution uses Verint's NextivaTM platform for all live video monitoring, recording and analyt­ics.  Proprietary soft­ware integrates the Nextiva video solution with the systems supporting number-plate recognition and face recognition and performs other intelligent functions including red-light violation, stolen car alerts and traffic light management.  There are five operator stations in the data center.  Each operator is responsible for a specific region, covered by about 20 cameras and in­cluding one or two intersections. The Verint Nextiva-based intelli­gent functions and video analytics mean the operators can stay focused on the impor­tant events, since they are alerted by the system when action is needed.  For example, whatever else they are observing at the time, the system can alert the operator when a stolen car passes through their zone, allowing the operator to monitor the situation, verify the vehicle identity, identify possible routes the vehicle may be taking and pass vital data to the police ‘on the ground', all whilst maintaining their view of the situation they were originally observing. The system also handles off-line processing of traffic infringements, recording and passing relevant information and still photographs to traffic police for further processing. Feedback indicates the Sofia pilot project is very successful.  Police records show that the reported crimes in the area of the pilot project have decreased by 70% since the project commenced.  Drivers receiving traffic tick­ets in the mail tend to pay extra attention while passing through the monitored zones and are more careful not to commit infractions. Information from the system has also proved very useful in cases of collisions, non-traffic vio­lations, crimes, emergency situations and public events. As a result of this success, the project in Sofia is set to develop beyond the initial phase and is planned to expand over the next two to three years to cover about 200 road intersections, major routes through the city center and some public places.

Verint And EMC Join Hands To Provide Surveillance Security To Kentucky Exposition Centre
Verint And EMC Join Hands To Provide Surveillance Security To Kentucky Exposition Centre

The Kentucky Exposition Centre is among the top largest public facilities in the country offering close to 1.4 million square feet of indoor space, over 300 acres of outdoor demonstration areas, and park­ing for 19,000 vehicles.Operated by the Kentucky State Fair Board, an agency of the Kentucky Commerce Cabinet, the facility is home to the century-old Kentucky State Fair, the National Farm Machinery Show, and the North American International Livestock Exposition. It also hosts a full schedule of year-round events includ­ing conventions, trade shows, sports, concerts, and a variety of other engagements. This recently expanded multi-use facility features two indoor arenas and an outdoor stadium that can accommo­date over 73,000 people simultaneously. It also offers a 600-seat auditorium, 35 meeting rooms, and a championship-size, covered equestrian/livestock arena with over 1,000 permanent horse stalls and room for 720 additional temporary stalls.Monitoring and patrolling such a large and diverse campus has become a challenging undertaking. To help support and strengthen security efforts, a security design expert was engaged to develop a plan for deploying a pilot surveillance system in the Centre's South Wing.With a solid reputation for providing the state of Kentucky with many successful information infra­structure solutions, EMC was selected to supply a powerful, reliable, and highly scalable storage platform for the new video surveillance system. Recommended by EMC, and chosen for its leadership and innovation in security intelligence, Verint Systems Inc. contributed an advanced video surveil­lance and management solution flexible enough to accommodate expansion of surveillance areas and provide support for greater management and analysis capabilities as required. Verint Nextiva is a powerful, integrated IP video solution suite that features bandwidth-efficient video encoders, sophisticated video analytics, robust video management software, intelligent policy-based video distribution, automated system health monitoring, and an intuitive user interface. Surveillance of Kentucky Exposition Centre is a hard task due to its vast area and numerous resources "With our growth, we have started to attract larger and high-dollar value events," says Alicia Montgomery Dunlap, Information Systems Manager for the Kentucky State Fair Board. "Implementing a state-of-the-art video surveillance system was a natural next step, and helps us fully address the expectations and security requirements of our customers."Advanced, 24x7 surveillance capabilities for "CLASS A" exhibit spaceAn integrated solution consisting of a combination of 20 fixed and pan/tilt/zoom cameras, a Dell server running Verint's Nextiva Video Management software, and a 3.2-terabyte EMC CLARiiON CX3 series-based system have been supporting advanced video surveillance and management capa­bilities for the facility's South Wing conference centers and "CLASS A" exhibit space for the last seven months.Verint's Nextiva works in conjunction with high-performance, highly available EMC CLARiiON CX series storage to continuously record and archive incoming video streams. Older video is purged automatically after approximately 60 days, as specified by customer-set policy."We purchased a seven-foot rack to start housing the storage for this system and with our expansion plans, we expect to quickly fill it," says Dunlap.Nextiva also enables cameras to be configured to execute certain actions at various times. For exam­ple, "trip lines" can be implemented to trigger cameras in specific areas and times to zoom in on activity, such as a door opening in a closed exhibit hall. Nextiva enables video records to be quickly and easily retrieved from the EMC CLARiiON CX series system for viewing virtually anytime and anywhere.   Verint's Nextiva is flexible enough to work with a wide variety of security cameras "We had an instance recently where we were trying to determine who was leaving a door unlocked," says Dunlap. "We were able to easily call back and review video records to find out who was involved and when it happened so that we could reiterate with those folks the necessity of locking the door so equipment doesn't walk away."The fact that Nextiva is flexible enough to work with a wide variety of security cameras is also an advantage, both in terms of balancing expenditures within a state budget and acquiring the right equipment to meet particular needs."Because of Nextiva's flexibility, we can essentially purchase whatever cameras suit us best from lower cost fixed cameras to those with lenses or features we would like to take advantage of," says Erik Marvin, Network Analyst III. "We learned that those would also be compatible with our Verint system." Also part of the Centre's strategy to build out its security management capabilities are plans to incor­porate Nextiva analytics on board the Nextiva encoders. These integrated, embedded analytics will help security personnel more rapidly detect and address events, with significantly lower bandwidth, server, and storage requirements than server-based video analytics."Right now we only have 20 cameras, but once we move beyond the 60 to 80 mark, we plan to take advantage of the additional security management and analytics capabilities that Verint offers," says Marvin. EMC and Verint engineers closely collaborated to ensure that Nextiva software was prop­erly installed at the centre Coordinated service and supportBecause events are continually in progress, installing cable and cameras had to be coordinated around those events. Trained by Verint before installation, a team of technicians from Orion Systems worked closely with the Centre's IT team to facilitate a non-disruptive installation.Meanwhile, EMC and Verint engineers closely collaborated to ensure that Nextiva software was prop­erly installed on the designated recording server and that supporting EMC CLARiiON CX series storage was up and running. Despite having to squeeze work in between events, the entire installation from start to finish only took a little over a month to complete."EMC, Verint, and Orion were very engaged in our project and ensured that everything was working the way we wanted it to," says Dunlap. "EMC played a large role in bringing everyone and everything together. We were comfortable knowing that if we needed anything we could just make a call. Every­one worked well as a team, and it seemed like they were all from the same company."Success and scalability set the stage for future expansionThe success of the Verint Nextiva system supported by EMC technology in the South Wing, coupled with the easy expandability of the solution, has solidified the Centre's strategy to extend video sur­veillance capabilities to indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the entire facility as budgets and needs permit. This includes video surveillance and traffic support for the Centre's parking lots as well as for the "Circle of Champions" road that rings the perimeter of the property. Plans also involve deploying a similar solution at the Centre's 460,000 square foot sister facility, The Kentucky International Convention Centre, which extends across two city blocks in downtown Louisville."One of the system's greatest advantages is its scalability," says Marvin. "We merely have to install cameras and add more storage, which is easy to do on the CLARiiON, and we can quickly expand our surveillance capabilities when and where we need them." EMC information infrastructure solutions, such as EMC Documentum content management software, EMC Centera content addressed storage, and other EMC storage platforms to support storage, backup, and archiving needs on the enterprise side also are being considered to help support the Centre's many needs from e-commerce to video streaming.
