Foxstream is an innovative software company that has specialized in real-time intelligent video analytics since 2004. In 2014, Foxstream acquired Blue Eye Video to strengthen and expand their brand, renaming the subsidiary Foxstream Inc.

Foxstream's software solutions have been developed focusing on security and flow management. The company's solutions are the result of more than ten years of work in this field, in partnership with the Laboratoire d'InfoRmatique en Image et Systèmes (LIRIS) and National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) labs, in order to offer the best innovative technology. Foxstream's goal is to provide optimal detection, with accurate, real-time information.

Foxstream, formerly known as Blue Eye Video, is a queue management software solution provider for the airport industry. It supplies reliable people counting tools, with both predictive and real figures.

Passenger data gathering tools for airports
This data is useful to enhance the passenger experience and the airport's image, as it can be displayed on-site on information screens to inform passengers of waiting times of different checkpoints. It can also be displayed on the airport's website, or on different apps that passengers can view on their phone or tablet. The provided data is also useful for airport managers, as it is used to create dashboards to help operators manage the different lines, such as check-in, security, and baggage claim, for a greater airport income.

Optimized resource allocation to reduce passenger waiting times and increase airport revenue
The goals of Foxstream's queue management solutions are:

  • Reduce waiting times
  • Optimize resource allocation
  • Increase airport revenue
  • Enhance passenger experience
Reduced passenger waiting times and queue density through video analytics
With video analytics, every passenger is monitored, as opposed to 10%-30% through Wi-Fi. Compared to other solutions, Foxstream doesn't only provide historical information, but complete data, such as real-time and estimated wait times, the number of passengers in lanes, and queue density. A camera view can also be displayed.

Customized dashboard configurations and tools for airport operators and managers
A dashboard configuration tool defines exactly what each customer wants. Real-time decision-making tools are provided, as well as anticipating tools to avoid long queues. The solution includes dedicated and customized dashboards for airport managers, airlines, security managers, as well as for stakeholders.
For each queue, dashboards can display:

  • Estimated wait times
  • Real waiting times
  • The number of passengers in queues
  • The exit flow
Real-time predictive performance measurement and airport traffic calculation
The Foxstream solution offers a high number of tools for an optimized use of queue data by airport managers. For an even higher level of performance, Foxstream works with partners to offer a complete predictive tool. Reports can be integrated to compare forecasts with real-time performance measurement in order to improve planning. The target is to provide advanced simulation software to calculate traffic according to airport planners' needs.
