Video analytics deal with Siemens follows similar successes in China, France, and the United States

Here is a promotional opportunity for Borat. Raanana, Israel-based NICE (“niiice”) Systems has signed a deal with Switzerland-based Siemens to help provide video analytics technology for a security upgrade of the Belgian railroad system. “The NICE solutions are the de-facto choice of leading European mass transit systems,” said Siemens’s Erik Verhaegen. The good news follows a recent company failure to buy business intelligence software company Witness Systems, but it also follows a string of similar successes in winning deals to protect everything from Beijing’s subway systems and the Eiffel Tower to Ronald Reagan National Airport. Under the Siemens deal, NICE will provide its award-winning NiceVision video surveillance system — currently installed on more than 200,000 cameras worldwide.
