A Complete View of Security
Based in Marble Falls, American Bank of Texas, N.A. provides banking and other financial services for the Highland Lakes, Austin, San Antonio, Seguin, Fredericksburg and Temple areas. American Bank of Texas N.A. delivers personalized attention to customers across the bank’s 16 branches. With total assets more than $747 million, ABT offers the charm of a small town bank with the resources of a large financial institution.
Personalized attention is only one of the many services that customers enjoy on a daily basis with American Bank. Behind the scenes, bank management has taken a proactive approach to customer security, not only data security, but physical security as well. Crimes like check fraud and identity theft also pose a significant threat to financial institutions and require the latest in video surveillance.
All ABT branches are equipped with the best-of—breed video surveillance security equipment and systems. Teller windows, processing rooms, ATMs, parking lots, lobbies and common areas are all monitored by high-quality video cameras for the safety of customers, employees and staff.
“ABT’s goals to protect assets, people and privacy have been en-hanced with the installation of CompleteView,” says Howard Gordon, Senior VP, Information Technology, American Bank of Texas. “It’s a powerful tool that provides fast searching and the ability to send video clips instantaneously to law enforcement and other branches. It’s easy to use so training new employees is simple which helps keep costs down.”
ABT utilizes 280 IP and analog cameras spread over the American Bank region from Marble Falls to San Antonio and Temple. All cameras are connected to servers running CompleteView Pro video management system from Salient Systems. Video recording, live viewing and instant playback provide immediate, actionable information for management and law enforcement.
Video can be searched by date, time, camera location or any combination of these, or when an alarm event occurs. Video displays instantly on an alarm to catch the attention of the security operator. Video events are then displayed in a history list where the operator can call up live video with full camera controls and review the recording of the event side-by—side.
