Challenge: Monitor events across an expansive complex

With thousands of motorists using the CBBT every day, the operations team must keep track of what is happening across the complex to ensure a safe and efficient journey for all. However, with so many things to look out for, including traffic, incidents and weather conditions, it can be challenging to stay at the forefront of security. As a result, CBBT understood that they needed a solution that could provide them with crystal-clear, real-time video of what was happening across the facility.

    The Pelco security cameras’ panoramic views and zoom features help to improve the operations team’s situational awareness.

  • Quick verification of incident reports

    Using the real-time video footage captured by the Pelco cameras, the CBBT team can now instantly verify reports of incidents across their complex.

  • Analysis that drives efficiencies

    Using Pelco VideoXpert VMS, the operator can analyze footage to see what happened and then use the findings to drive changes that help prevent future incidents.

Result: A purpose-built video security system

Today, the CBBT team continues to provide a safe and efficient way to travel for thousands of motorists. With the powerful video security solutions from Pelco, the operations team can rely on its technology to provide the extensive coverage they need to perform their duties.
