3 Ways Airports Can Boost Security with These Sharp Surveillance Solutions
Airports inherently contain a multitude of security challenges and obstacles that can raise the risk of physical or data-based threats. For example, these environments are more likely to have layouts that can hinder the efficacy of conventional surveillance cameras due to the increased likelihood of potential blind spots. What’s more, securing sensitive data such as credit card numbers are especially crucial since millions of people circulate through airports on any given day. That’s why it is vital that airports have a video surveillance system that rises to the occasion. Find out how Pelco’s GFC Professional 4K camera provides these environments with an intelligent solution that significantly increases the safety of passengers and staff.
1. Landside terminals are secure with license plate recognition and intelligent lighting capabilities.
Areas such as parking lots and drop-off lanes have its unique challenges, one of which involves being able to quickly and accurately identify suspicious people, vehicles, and signs. License plate recognition gives security administrators the ability to automatically identify a threat in seconds, which increases response times and lessens the extent of damage done at the scene. Lighting also presents another challenge for airports since license plates can often be obscured by bright tail lights, especially during night time. With 4K cameras such as the GFC Professional 4K camera, both over and under-exposed lighting are equalized. It also saves you on storage and bandwidth costs thanks to H.265 and Pelco Smart Compression.
2. You experience enhanced monitoring with sharp views of passengers and staff
When it comes to monitoring the terminal itself, there are multiple factors that security administrators need to keep in mind. For one, knowing where each of your cameras are located can significantly increase the safety of airports because any maintenance issues can be quickly reported and solved. Airports need a way to prevent unauthorized entry or exit while responding to instances of unattended baggage and retail theft. The VxMaps feature in Pelco’s VideoXpert VMS gives security administrators the ability to do just that. As with organizing your surveillance system, it is just as important to install cameras in such a way that they can easily capture passengers and staff so they can be easily identified in the event of a security breach. Pelco’s GFC Pro 4K camera makes an ideal product for this kind of environment since it is specifically designed to capture one of the sharpest possible views.
3. Protect airsides with a rugged camera that takes on a wide range of temperatures
For a comprehensive security solution that protects airport perimeter and exterior premises, you can count on this 4K camera. It can detect potential breaches by unauthorized individuals on runways, taxiways, and aircraft with the IR Illumination feature (include specs on distance of IR illuminate). This camera is also rugged and reliable as it can withstand tough, outdoor weather conditions. Facial recognition is another capability that is possible when coupled with VideoXpert.
