ATLANTA - VistaScape Security Systems, a provider of surveillance solutions, has been awarded a contract to implement its automated wide-area surveillance platform at the Port of Long Beach in California, and the Port of Orange in Texas.
VistaScape’s platform will link video and sensors in the ports’ area to central command centers. The company’s surveillance software automatically detects security intrusions by allowing security personnel to define virtual barriers on a digital map of the secured area.
The Port of Long Beach is considered to be the nation’s second busiest port and covers more than 3,000 acres. The Port of Orange, located less than 100 miles east of Houston, is a major hub to other ports located in the Gulf of Mexico.
