בריפקאם בע"מ

A private Israeli provider of video synopsis solutions for law enforcement agencies, governments and companies.

The company’s technology has been deployed in the Old City in occupied East Jerusalem.

A public tender published by Israeli Ministry of Housing and Construction (IMOCH) for the provision and maintenance of electronic, technological and physical security systems in 98 sites in occupied East Jerusalem specified that its video management software must support video synopsis software such as Briefcam. Briefcam is the developer and owner of worldwide patents for the VIDEO SYNOPSIS® solution.

According to the tender documents, the sites are located in Palestinian areas in which a number of Israeli settlers reside, and most are gated and can only be accessed through vehicle or pedestrian access gates. The project divides East Jerusalem into three distinct zones: the Shuafat ridge, the City of David settler complex (located in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan) and the Old City.

A local command and control system would be installed in each individual site and all sites would broadcast to nine regional command and control centers. Regional centers would be connected to three area centers which would broadcast to two central centers. The entire apparatus would be accessible to officials in the IMOHC offices in Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem.
