Modern video surveillance in airports requires flexible solutions which fulfil stringent quality and security demands: Distributed cameras, recording and transmission of video signals, live presentation, use of digital networks, intelligent picture processing, integration of audio channels and control as a video system via a higher-order (often already existing) building-management system.
Due to the layout of modern airports with numerous separate buildings and areas, the need arises for multi-area surveillance systems with the flexibility to set up secondary control centres as well, for example. Emergency scenarios and the integration of mobile control stations also play an important role.
HD security systems provide digital video streams over a network or internet allowing various operators at the airport to monitor the same feeds in conjunction. Customs, police, fire and medic, airport operations, and baggage can all view cameras simultaneously from separate Mac, PC’s, iPads or Smartphones.
Scalability and Growth
Todays HD digital surveillance systems are scalable and can grow as big as you need them. Newer systems allow for cross-technology and hybrid use, meaning that you can use existing older technology such as older CCTV analog cameras and tie them together with new IP or HD cameras on the same system.
HD video recorders allow for live monitoring via a local network or the internet. Video feeds can be accessed anywhere in the world you have an internet connection and you can even access archived footage. Newer systems support email and push notification alerts so you may instantly be notified of an event no matter where you are.
