For the already-installed system, legacy cameras are connected to the IP network using encoder technology. A mix of DVTel IP PTZ domes, Mini Domes, and Fixed Cameras, including innovative video analytics, providing a unified solution that includes a combination of network cameras, IP video surveillance, IP access control and integrated third-party solutions.

In addition, DVTel’s unique and powerful SceneTracker software can be deployed to stitch together multiple cameras in both the Immigration area, to show which areas are particularly busy, and in the Airside control area to give an overall view of the Aircraft docking area. SceneTracker provides a real-world, real-time perspective of multiple camera images in a single integrated view. One SceneTracker installation will cover five cameras viewing an airport apron, while another will stitch four cameras trained on immigration lines.


O.R. Tambo International

For example, Central Terminal Building (CTB) at O.R. Tambo International is using 650 IP surveillance cameras in the building linking international arrival and departures. The DVTel intelligent Security Operations Center (iSOC) is the management platform for viewing, storing, and utilizing all camera data from the many hundreds of cameras deployed throughout the airport. Read more

Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport

In Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport the DVTel intelligent Security Operations Center (iSOC) platform, was selected as the primary command and control management software and to provide IP network video surveillance for what will eventually number thousands of surveillance cameras located throughout the airport’s passenger terminals, concourse buildings, parking areas, baggage inspection rooms, and baggage conveyor areas. Recently, the KingPower duty-free operation with 180 individual stores, also chose the iSOC to manage over 500 cameras covering the 43,000 square feet (4,000 square meters) of luxury duty-free shopping. Read more

In addition to managing all video data over the airport network, several technology integrations are underway and/or planned. Video can be used for non-security applications, thus enabling surveillance technology to be used for multiple roles. For example, car park cameras will be used for car counting applications to show airport users where available parking spaces are located.

Continental Airlines

Continental Airlines at Newark Airport, the fifth largest airline in the United States, manages thousands of take-offs and landings every day of the year. The company’s headquarters is located in Houston, Texas with hub airports in that city as well as in Newark, New Jersey and Cleveland, Ohio. Aside from labor costs, an airline’s biggest expense is fuel. In recent months, as fuel costs have skyrocketed, the efficient scheduling and management of every aircraft has taken on increased importance because of the major impact to the airline’s bottom line. Continental has an excellent track record and takes considerable.

Continental chose DVTel’s Network Video Management System (NVMS) and its newest software solution, SceneTracker, to provide its Terminal C Coordination Center with the capabilities to more effectively manage the movement and servicing of hundreds of aircraft from runway to gate and back again. SceneTracker, powered by revolutionary Advanced Visualization Technology (AVT) provides a real world, real time perspective of multiple camera images in a single integrated view. After a few short months of deployment, management decided to examine extending SceneTracker deployment to Terminal A. Such a deployment can create a “virtual tower” that would enable NOCC staff in Terminal C to control aircraft without any direct line of sight.
