How can airports benefit from Genetec’s solutions?
Below is a list of benefits:
Airport security and perimeter security
The Security Center, including Omnicast and Synergis, is capable of managing systems of any size. Whether it is one camera or door at a time, or multiple groups, Genetec’s solutions can accommodate any current or future growth plans. Large perimeters can also benefit from Omnicast’s map feature, which allows cameras to be easily pinpointed for time-sensitive video demands and increased efficiency.
Video analytics, access control and LPR data drawing and indexing
When response time to events is deemed crucial, Genetec’s Metadata Engine can facilitate operations by drawing and indexing data from multiple sources such as video analytics, access control and LPR.
The Metadata Engine ultimately provides the system operator with a unified source of security information and allows for pre-programming of highly sophisticated event/alarm procedures which alert personnel of very precise incidents.
Easy-share of video surveillance, access control and LPR data
In high-risk environments, it is important to know that authorities can access security system information in a timely and unrestrictive manner. Genetec’s Federation architecture provides the ease of sharing security data across various independent organisations, as it unifies autonomous systems from various geographic locations and throughout a range of time zones.
Secure and reliable video surveillance, access control and LPR systems
To ensure that your system is protected at all times, Genetec’s full suite of solutions offers powerful failover and redundancy features that warrant no single point of failure. High-end integrity safeguards are also available to protect against tampering, interception and distortion of security data.
Open-platform video surveillance and access control systems
Genetec’s full suite of security solutions boasts true open-platform architecture that gives organisations the freedom to choose any hardware that suits their preferences or needs. Additionally, existing network infrastructures or hardware investments can be leveraged to reduce overall system-installation costs.
Vehicle identification systems
Offering the highest level of accuracy, AutoVu secures a facility’s entry and exit points as it reads vehicle plates at differential speeds of up to 140mph (225km/h). AutoVu can also increase efficiency of revenue control within parking facilities, and can compare all collected reads to third-party databases of either black or white-listed license plates.
Rapid-deployment video surveillance, access control and LPR systems
All of Genetec’s security solutions are designed so that organisations can benefit from easy installation and fast deployment. Additionally, Genetec’s full product suite boasts an intuitive user interface which enables security operators to effortlessly maneuver through applications, increasing overall productivity and efficiency.
