Provide real-time surveillance to multiple departments
With surveillance enabling digital surveillance streams to travel over the internet, either through direct IP cameras and / or NVR’s and DVR’s, or through enterprise servers, operators in various airport departments such as police, customs, fire and medic, baggage, and airport operations, can all monitor the video feeds from separate PC workstations.
Optiview’s Edge Intelligent cameras have built-in video analytics that work with the head-end or on a stand-alone basis play a pivotal role in airport security. These cameras utilize software algorithms to detect specific activities and scan for suspicious individuals. For instance, cameras with facial recognition technology work to help authorities find terrorist threats and marked individuals on government watch lists or any other form of established data base. On-board or head-end behavioral recognition allows Optiview’s surveillance solutions to detect incidents such as left objects, congestion, reverse movement through checkpoints, and cars spending too much time parked in one spot outside of the building. Whether these features run through cameras themselves or through a server, the analytics operate in real-time for a multitude of users.
Flexibility and scalability
Optiview’s video surveillance systems are scalable, meaning they can grow as needed, or as the airport grows. This is particularly important because this allows for accommodation of budget constraints while ensuring that the equipment that does go in is compatible with future additions. Optiview’s equipment is also backward compatible – Optiview systems can integrate Analog, HD over coax, IP, TVI, CVI and any Onviv protocol. Additional cameras are easily connected to the network, and pre-existing analog cameras can be incorporated into new systems by using digital encoders.
All of Optiview’s units utilize the latest compression technology – currently .265. This vastly increases the amount of data stored on a hard drive. In turn hard drives can be piggy-backed within a DVR/NVR or server, and these in turn with other DVR/NVR’s or servers for literally unlimited storage capacity. Advanced search features crunch this data quickly and accurately.
Optiview surveillance systems send live video streams over the internet or over 3G/4G networks, where they can be viewed, along with archived footage, remotely from any device with network or wireless access. This allows authorized users to monitor airport activities from off-site locations. Optiview’s video management software adapts to Microsoft Exchange server environments and interfaces with Microsoft’s active directory.
