East Midlands Airport upgrades surveillance with Indigovision

Edinburgh, UK

Indigovision's end-to-end IP video surveillance system has been installed at East Midlands Airport, providing the business with more detailed analysis and greater storage of video surveillance footage.
Located in the heart of the UK, East Midlands Airport is an important hub for UK passenger travel, connecting over four million passengers annually with more than 90 destinations. As the UK’s primary pure freight airport, East Midlands Airport is home to leading air freight operators DHL, TNT and UPS and is a major air hub for the Royal Mail.

Working with local partner P&G Electrical, Indigovision has reused some of the existing infrastructure and cameras, adding new high definition cameras, 195 static and 18 PTZ cameras. These are a combination of analogue and IP units, alongside Indigovision’s NVRs (Network Video Recorders).

The distributed and open architecture of Indigovision’s IP video system provides the ideal installation platform for the migration of existing CCTV equipment, and seamless integration with other security systems.

The airport now has 52Tb of storage available, necessary due to increased government requirements for retention of footage. The export of that footage for analysis has also been simplified.

Three Control Center stations have been established at the airport, to allow multiple-location monitoring from the car park, security operations and apron control centres. User reports have been particularly positive regarding the camera salvos, guard tours and alarm acknowledgement features of Control Center, as well as its easy to use, intuitive interface.

John Doherty, Security General Manager East Midlands Airport, commented: “The Indigovision solution has allowed new technology to enhance our security monitoring and analysis of footage at East Midlands Airport. As a large organisation with multiple sites that need to be monitored, the IP video surveillance system has provided us with an easy to use solution that suits all of our requirements.”

All cameras across the airport now use Indigovision’s Activity Controlled Framerate (ACF) technology. ACF controls the framerate of the video stream based on the amount of motion in the scene. When there is no activity, video is streamed at minimal framerate; the instant any motion is detected, video is simultaneously transmitted at maximum configured framerate. This significantly reduces the bandwidth and NVR storage requirement for cameras monitoring generally static scenes.

G-Sim boosts security information management

Security, planning, processes – the right information is always important. It usually comes from different systems. G-Sim from Geutebruck has been designed to provide the comprehensive overview. In the version now available, thanks to 64-bit architecture and GPU acceleration, this now also happens three times faster. And because the stringent demands placed on security information management do not depend on the size of the system, there is also G-Sim Express, an interesting starter package.
