MODI’IN, ISRAEL – An Israeli company was chosen to be part of a nine-member team of technology vendors in a digital security system project for the Statue of Liberty National Monument in New York Harbor.

Assembled by Total Recall Corporation, a video-centric security technology provider specializing in surveillance solutions, the company put together a “dream team” which has top technology to enhance public safety and operation efficiency at America’s well known monument. BriefCam was selected for its award-winning Video Synopsis technology that summarizes hours of events into a “brief” that takes just minutes to watch including direct video feed or archived footage. The Israeli company, headquartered in Modi’in, Israel, has projects in several cities in North America, China and Taiwan, a company representative told Tazpit News Agency. “We are being used by law enforcement and investigative agencies in the US, China and of course, Israel.”

The current surveillance deployment marks the first time an all-digital surveillance system has been installed at the Statue of Liberty monument, which previously had implemented an old analog system that had been unable to reach certain areas of Liberty Island. Following the heavy damage caused by deadly Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the Statue of Liberty underwent eight months of renovation and repairs. The monument reopened to the public on Independence Day, June 4, 2013.

“The National Park Service and Statue of Liberty National Monument greatly appreciate the comprehensive security system donated by Total Recall,” Capt. Gregory Norman, Commander of Liberty District, U.S. Park Police said.

“The lack of electricity, flooding and damage caused by Sandy could not stop the amazing team from making sure that Lady Liberty could welcome visitors – as she always has,” said Jordan Heilweil, president of Total Recall Corporation.

“We assembled a Dream Team of cutting-edge security technology providers to give her the best protection possible while helping the Park Police, Department of the Interior and National Park Service deliver a memorable experience for the millions of families who visit the Statue each year,” added Heilweil.

Dror Irani, CEO and President of BriefCam further added that “for over a hundred years, as people arrived at Ellis Island from every part the world, they would see the Statue of Liberty and feel they had reached a safe haven in the USA. Today, we’re extremely proud to be part of the team bringing 21st century safety and security technology to this long-standing symbol of hope and freedom.”

The Statue of Liberty was a gift of friendship to the United States from the people of France and was dedicated in October 1886. The robed female figure, holding a torch and tablet, represents Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom. Approximately four million people visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island each year according to the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy.
