Ferry Operator Chooses ACTi Network Video Surveillance Solution

The Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Steamboat Co. is a ferry service provider based in Long Island, N.Y. Located just 50 miles from New York City, Port Jefferson is a maritime transportation hub connecting Long Island with Bridgeport, Conn.

Physical security is a paramount concern for a major transportation provider like The Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Steamboat Co. With three ferries to secure and terminals to monitor, a reliable video surveillance solution was required. To meet the highest security standards of the government, the operator chose ACTi network video surveillance solutions.

Each vessel uses 22 x ACM1231 megapixel network video cameras. Cameras surrounding the vehicle deck provide a video log of all cars entering and exiting, while cameras from the passenger decks are monitored to provide physical site security. All video is managed by a Video-Insight Server with two remote clients on each vessel. Additionally, security officers at the terminal and docking facility can remotely monitor real time video via a mobile broadband connection.

The system installation was provided by Emergency Electronic Services Inc., located in Setauket, N.Y.

Hugh Whitsit, CEO of Emergency Electronic Services, was directly involved in helping choose ACTi as the preferred solution for the transportation provider.

“ACTi’s ACM1231 was chosen due to its weather tight enclosure that met our application requirement,” Whitsit said. “We like ACTi’s megapixel cameras for their capability to show clearer details when enhancing video” during playback and live viewing of the video, adding “we also like them for the affordability.”
