ObjectVideo’s Intelligent Video Selected by Port of Texas City


The Port of Texas City, one of the largest private ports within the United States located in Texas City, Texas, has selected ObjectVideo’s Intelligent Video Surveillance Software to protect it from unauthorized intrusions by people, vehicles, and watercraft. The sale involves the installation of more than 40 surveillance cameras around the port’s 22,000-foot perimeter.

The port is bordered by the U.S. Texas City Harbor on its east side, and several chemical plants and oil refineries surround its northern and western sides. Additionally, an industrial ship canal borders the port on its southern side, separating the port facility itself from a chemical storage facility.

“As a major port in the U.S. surrounded by chemical plants and oil refineries, we demand the most advanced in security technologies,” says Port of Texas City Manager of Port Security Jason Hayley.

The Texas City Terminal Railway Company provides an important land link to the port, handling over more than 25,000 car loads per year.

“ObjectVideo’s technology can distinguish between an everyday occurrence and a potential threat to provide us with actionable intelligence in real-time,” says Hayley.
