MacArthur Airport is an excellent example of how current digital technology can improve airport security in a cost effective manner.
Bay Shore, New York (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
IPVideo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of Video Management Systems (VMS) and Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solutions, announced that Long Island MacArthur Airport (LIMA) is using its Sentry VMS to enhance protection of passengers, aircraft, and baggage.
LIMA, a public airport owned by the Town of Islip, serves nearly two million commercial passengers a year from four runways and two helipads. Averaging 500 flights a day, the 1,300- acre property also houses approximately 250 private and general aviation aircraft. In 2011, the FAA designated LIMA as a New York Metro Airport. With the opportunity for expanded air service and potential passenger growth, the Town of Islip decided to upgrade the airport’s analog surveillance system to a more advanced digital technology.
LIMA selected IPVideo’s intuitive Sentry VMS to fully integrate all its surveillance cameras under a central video management system. IPVideo’s solution enabled LIMA to upgrade its existing system, taking full advantage of advances in digital video while leveraging previous investments by incorporating the airport’s existing technology into the new system.
The Sentry VMS system provides enhanced features that address the unique needs of airport operations including high-resolution cameras that capture facial details to aid officers in identifying persons of interest. In addition, the system’s timeline feature improves customer service, allowing law enforcement to review video to help travelers find lost property and locate their cars in the parking lot.
“Sentry VMS gives us fuller coverage than we had before, providing us with an extra set of eyes to help protect the traveling public,” said Greg DeCanio, Chief of Law Enforcement at Long Island MacArthur Airport. “We are pleased with the new system’s ease of installation, and comprehensive flexibility, which allows us to expand as we grow our operations. The system also provides us the ability to access video at our computers, making us more efficient and letting us monitor activity for security and law enforcement purposes at the touch of a button.”
“MacArthur Airport is an excellent example of how current digital technology can improve airport security in a cost effective manner,” said David Antar, President and Chief Executive Officer at IPVideo Corporation.
