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.

How to deliver adequate power to security devices in industrial sites

With security found in more and more industrial settings, advanced and heavy-duty network devices are needed on the edge to make implementations effective. Amid this trend, the first major challenge is to deliver enough power to these devices. Increasingly, traditional PoE standards, IEEE 802.3af/at that deliver 15.4W and 30W of power, are proving insufficient in this regard. A hardened 60W PoE switch, on the other hand, can better the power supply needs of industrial users.

How will Brexit affect the security industry?

As the United Kingdom starts to follow through with the necessary steps to leave the European Union (EU), there could be a number of consequences that filter through to security industry stakeholders. In theory, according to Jim Dearing of IHS Markit who has taken a look at the potential impact, in the short-term the market outlook for 2016 and 2017 should be relatively unaffected.

The U.K. has yet to activate Article 50, which instigates the formal procedure to leave the EU. Only the U.K. Prime Minister can invoke Article 50 to begin the negotiation process, which is expected to take around two years to complete.

As a consequence of this, the ISO and IEC standard for information security, ISO/IEC 27001, has become more widely used. A new standard just published will take that a step further, helping to apply the requirements of this flagship standard to specific sectors.
