LAPD Deployed Milestone Video To Monitor Space Shuttle Endeavour's Final Journey

"We had numerous cameras lining Endeavour's path, with feeds from three to four devices on our screens at any moment. Milestone allowed us to split multiple views on our monitors, whereas other video products only allow a one-to-one monitor-to-camera solution. Milestone is intuitive and worked very well with our temporary camera setup. We were able to view and record in high definition with a flawless connection," reported Rich Cowgill, Police Surveillance Specialist for the LAPD Major Crimes Technical Support Unit.

The video surveillance solution provided live monitoring with the ability to quickly check archived recordings, to supervise every minute during Endeavour's transit from the L.A. International Airport to the California Science Center. Cowgill was in the command center, watching the crowds and traffic during Mission 26, constantly in radio contact with the officers guarding Endeavour, in helicopters and the surrounding areas. The entire setup provided the LAPD with optimal situational awareness and response capabilities.

Los Angeles regularly hosts events whose temporary nature requires on-the-fly surveillance to ensure the safety of participants and spectators. From championship parades and award shows to protests and political appearances, there are endless scenarios. The Milestone open platform is especially well-suited for this, supporting a wide mix of camera models and unlimited integrations with third-party security solutions - ideal for the LAPD's changing needs to protect and serve the community in different situations.  

"Our main objective was to ensure the safety of the residents and visitors lining the streets to watch this momentous event," summarized Cowgill. "There were so many eyes on the shuttle itself - from officers to responders - who were concerned about the payload. With hundreds of people filling every block, our team was able to walk with the spacecraft's security, while we had an overhead view of the huge crowd, keeping order."
