BATM deploys surveillance solution in new CCTV system in Islington

Solution will enable police officers, and the council's Anti-Social Behaviour team, to respond more quickly to incidents

BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LSE: BVC; TASE: BATM), a leading provider of real-time technologies for the networked telecoms and medical laboratory equipment markets, is pleased to announce that it is deploying a surveillance solution for Islington Council's new CCTV system. The contract, valued at $0.8m, was awarded through the Group's wholly-owned subsidiary, Vigilant Technology, which was recently merged into BATM's Telecom division.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Group is supplying an intelligent internet protocol surveillance solution at Islington's new CCTV control and command centre, consisting of a video recording platform and a unique video wall/virtual matrix for displaying video feeds that enables all the sightings from cameras in one area or estate to be seen at the same time. It will bring together more than 1,000 cameras across Islington in a single centre that will be continuously monitored and will allow live or recorded footage to be made instantly available to devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. The new system, in which Islington Council has invested £2 million in total and which replaces the council's old CCTV room, will enable police officers, and the council's Anti-Social Behaviour team, to respond more quickly to incidents, and CCTV evidence can be gathered more rapidly and effectively.

Zvi Marom, CEO of BATM, said: "We're delighted to be involved in this exciting surveillance project, which is London's newest and one of the city's most advanced for reducing crime and anti-social incidents. Our solution was chosen because of its robust hybrid video recording abilities and unique video wall, and because of our proven track record in delivering town centre projects in the London boroughs of Hackney and Southwark as well as many others around the world. We look forward to contributing to the council's efforts to prevent, deter and detect crime and anti-social behaviour and enhancing the safety of the community."
