IP CCTV transmission delivers increased flexibility and reduces costs for one of the largest CCTV networks in Europe
Aéroports de Paris Group are Europe’s second largest airport group, managing airports, and aerodromes including Paris-Orly, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, and Paris-Le Bourget. As the airport authority for the Paris region, Aéroports de Paris view security operations as an integral part of their customer services and ensure a high level of security to safeguard passengers, airline companies and partners. In 2003 Aéroports de Paris embarked on an ambitious CCTV upgrade programme to improve the level of security and safety throughout their airports that still continues today. The superior video quality that the IP solution provides was a primary reason for Aéroports de Paris to establish a long-term partnership with Controlware.
Aéroports de Paris monitor high quality video from 14 airports. Since 2003 Controlware has assisted Aéroports de Paris with the evolution and expansion of their IP transmission network and to date have supplied over 5,000 video ports helping to create one of the largest ever integrated IP CCTV networks in Europe.
Carmelo Musumeci, Country Manager for Controlware Continental Europe, adds that ”The flexibility and scalability of the solution provides easy integration with existing CCTV equipment and this is especially important in the context of large-scale and evolving projects like Aéroports de Paris.”
The integrated IP CCTV system enables Aéroports de Paris to constantly monitor, record and manage video from thousands of cameras at any location on their network and to operate a crisis centre that can be used in case of emergencies. By using a single infrastructure costs can be saved; multiple operators are able to access, share and view live and recorded video without having to be onsite; remote control of PTZ cameras provides increased flexibility and there is virtually unlimited storage capacity for archived video. The integration opportunities are also much greater for IP solutions. By integrating the surveillance platform with access control or building management systems the creation of a single unified management and control platform is possible ensuring the safety of staff, passangers and visitors to the airport.
