We do that by working in close partnership with customers to deliver tailored, user-friendly solutions that ‘do more’ and do it well. Our solutions sit at the heart of our customers’ security and functional infrastructure, underpinning everyday activity and efficiency - even when there is no immediate threat of danger - by collecting operational data and enhancing service. In the event of an incident, they can be relied on to immediately capture and relay the full situational picture, connect and enable responses, and prevent threat escalation.

Regardless of the specific security or sector environment, our solutions enable collaboration and coordination. They are always there and always on.

Critical Security in Challenging Settings

Oil and gas projects, from onshore refineries, plants and pipelines to offshore marine vessels and platforms, are some of the most demanding environments on the planet. Harsh weather, extreme temperatures, remote locations, no or poor light conditions, hazardous and technical processes, significant personnel counts – they are all factors that make safety and security both difficult and essential.

This complex matrix of conditions means surveillance has to step up. Robust and reliable cameras have to deliver evidential image quality at all times, while integrated solutions are relied on to make data from multiple site sub-systems manageable, meaningful and actionable in mission critical situations.

This is what we do, and why our experts and solutions have been selected by some of the most high profile projects in this sector for over 30 years.

High Quality Image Capture in All Conditions

Synectics’ COEX™ brand - which pioneered the first Ex certified thermal camera station - features safe area, marine and hazardous area camera stations that can be found protecting some of the world’s largest oil and gas projects.

Our camera solutions are designed and developed to meet specific sector needs. Multi-spectral camera stations that switch between colour, mono and thermal imaging for conditions where weather, light and overall visibility fluctuate rapidly. HD IP camera stations with in-built compression delivering 1080p video, whether the application is an ice-class LNG tanker operating at -55°C, or a Middle East pipeline in +70°C heat.

Whether the challenge is location, temperature, corrosion, threat detection or motion, our internationally certified camera stations - developed through decades of field-experience – ensure picture quality is always guaranteed.

Integration that Protects People, Processes and Assets

Image quality is vital but it is only part of the protection equation. With Synergy 3 as the core command and control platform, we develop and deploy factory tested, highly scalable, integrated solutions that streamline and simplify threat detection by unifying data from sub-systems vital to oil, gas and marine operations.

The result is rapid, informed decision making where and when it matters most.

Our solutions ensure that any potentially significant event originating from any source - such as an anomalous gas or flare stack composition reading, access control/perimeter fence alert, deviation from tanker loading protocols, fire/smoke detection, or man-down notification - is identified quickly, analyzed, and presented in context to operators via interactive workflows to guide appropriate response.

Solutions for the Most Demanding Gaming Environments

With millions of guests and billions in assets at risk, our casino clients demand the most reliable, flexible and scalable surveillance systems to protect their complex, high profile businesses.

Accurately identifying and efficiently neutralizing risk is paramount to casino profitability. For our users, that means impeccable picture quality to distinguish card suits, cash denominations or rapid hand movements; integration to point of sale registers, access control and slot systems; and, multi-layered hardware and software redundancy to insure access to mission critical data at all times.

Engineered with gaming in mind, Synectics has a 30 year track record deploying dependable surveillance solutions in over 100 of the largest, busiest and most tightly regulated casinos in Asia, North America and Europe.

Unparalleled Integration Capability

Synergy 3, Synectics’ third generation command and control platform, seamlessly integrates with leading third party gaming and security systems, so enterprise-wide alarm and transactional data can be reviewed and acted upon from a single, customizable, and user-friendly interface. Synergy 3’s open architecture also empowers our customers to utilize their legacy products with new technologies – like megapixel cameras and analytics – so existing systems can be cost effectively upgraded with minimal disruption and tailored to meet ever-changing requirements.

Presenting Data that Matters

With thousands of cameras and alarms to monitor, surveillance operators are susceptible to information overload. So, they need ways to quickly detect, prioritize and respond to events that truly matter and deserve attention.

Synergy 3’s integrated management software filters through irrelevant data and reveals suspicious trends and threats. Alerts are automatically presented to the right people at the right time, and user-defined workflows can be triggered to guide operators through the correct procedures for each situation.

Enhanced situational awareness helps personnel proactively identify and prevent security breeches, table game or slot scams, POS anomalies, or recognize player preferences to enhance customer experience and retention, for valuable ROI. And, with reslient data replication, hardware failover, and IP backfilling, single points of failure are eliminated for maximum uptime and guaranteed availability 24/7/365.

Protecting Passengers and Assets

Transport hubs serve numerous businesses, employ hundreds of staff and process tens of thousands of passengers every day. They are critical to our infrastructure and as such require surveillance solutions capable of distilling data from a wide variety of sources to deliver an instant, clear and actionable view of activity across the whole site.

The transport assets that use these hubs - buses, trams, trains and light rail - also have a unique requirement portfolio. Here, on-vehicle technology that guarantees evidential quality image capture and reliable data storage is a must, to enhance passenger safety, safeguard against costly insurance claims and aid vehicle/driver performance.

Synectics is experienced in designing and delivering proven surveillance solutions for transport infrastructure and mobile assets, which is why our technology can be found protecting airports, ports, ships, rail networks and bus fleets throughout the world.

Understanding Need, Tailoring Solutions

Transport operators need to keep sites and assets secure and operations efficient, all within a framework of regulatory compliance. Their core mission and greatest challenge, however, is to ensure the safety and customer satisfaction of the people they are transporting.

We have built our proposition on the foundation of deep sector knowledge and a well-honed understanding of these challenges. Working collaboratively with our customers to garner a 360 degree view of a project is at the heart of our approach and guides the tailored solutions we provide.

Synergy 3, our command and control platform, embodies this approach. Its open architecture enables data integration from any security, efficiency or public safety system according to exact needs, while a powerful analytics engine, intuitive workflows and fully adaptable GIS mapping for incident pinpointing, ensures this information can be monitored and managed securely and efficiently.

Making the Connection Today and Tomorrow

Synectics provides elements vital to transport and infrastructure surveillance, including cameras for all environments and light conditions, servers, encoders, storage, workstations and Synergy 3.

We excel in complete, turnkey solutions that make connections like these possible: scenario detection that links an item of left luggage with unusual access door usage to generate an alert; WiFi-enabled solutions that connect vehicle and transport hub security; open protocols that allow transport operators to communicate with city-wide systems and agencies for ‘Smart City’ collaboration.

With our future proofed, scalable solutions transport operators can make these important connections now, and well into the future.

Sophisticated Surveillance for Highly Secure Facilities

High security sites, from financial institutions and utility providers to data centres and government organisations, are both vital and vulnerable.

Physical security is paramount in these environments and so is the ability to quickly identity, understand and respond to more subtle threats, from equipment malfunctions to safety failures. Synectics has a long history of delivering turnkey surveillance solutions that achieve this aim, with our sophisticated Synergy 3 command and control platform at their core.

The integration possibilities are endless which enables security teams, on or offsite, to merge and mine data from virtually any facility sub-system. Blending security, building management and facial recognition data to quickly spot threats, escalate alerts, and react based on automated workflows is simple. And for complete peace of mind, every action is securely stored to provide a comprehensive audit trail and evidence bank.

Comprehensive Solutions for Public Protection

Locations and facilities that experience high public footfall, such as town centres, retail malls and museums, have similar needs but come with the added challenges associated with public access. Additionally, those responsible for public space protection are often restricted by budget constraints. The need to achieve more with less is ever-present.

Synectics has a long heritage in public space protection, particularly in the UK where ours is the surveillance system of choice for local authorities. The integration capabilities of Synergy 3 are ideally suited to multi-site consolidation such as merged control rooms, inter-agency communications, unifying analogue and IP camera technology, and enforcing operational efficiencies for cost reduction.

Our experienced technicians have years of public space know-how and project management experience. Paired with the powerful capabilities of our solutions, we are well positioned to support the sector.

Helping to Make Smart Cities a Reality

The intelligently integrated surveillance solutions we deploy facilitate cross-city communication and incident response - between public, private and high security sites - by enabling shared awareness and response.

Inter-organisational workflow prompts, secure remote evidence access, universal alerts based on ‘known threat’ list data are all tools that can help inform critical decision making to help keep towns and cities safe.

Synectics’ strength in design, integration and project management makes us ideally positioned to support and enable those responsible for making smarter, safer cities a reality.
