Maldives airport upgrades to Ethernet and panoramic tech

The Gan International Airport in Maldives has recently deployed an IP-based video surveillance system consisting of Amg Systems panoramic 360 degree cameras on an Ethernet transmission platform and Wavestore VMS to monitor its executive terminal lounge areas. The Gan International Airport is owned and managed by Addu International Airport.

“Amg has worked with Gan International Airport for more than eight years,” said Leona Hayes, Business Development Manager for Overseas Markets at Amg Group. Being early adopters of analog video surveillance technology, authorities decided to move into IP some time ago to implement an Amg Ethernet technology backbone transmission structure. The camera's electronic-PTZ allows each user to control the camera without interfering with other users, and can be positioned for simultaneous view from eight different locations using multiple-dewarped streams generated from the camera. De-Warping is provided within the camera, which reduces the load on the NVR system. Amg's dewarping SDK provides electronic PTZ during user playback on the VMS. The PTZ streams can be pre-positioned to point to four different directions, such as north, east, south or west or controlled like multiple PTZ domes. Another feature is the cameras have no moving parts, which reduces maintenance costs from wear and tear.

“We have recently adopted a proactive approach to more intelligent surveillance solutions,” said Abdul Mujahid, Senior Technician also acting as Head of Technical Services at Addu International Airport. “ At Gan Airport, we wanted a cutting edge solution, and PanoCam360 delivers all the features and functionality we need. We're currently integrating the cameras with a Wavestore recording solution.”
