Hikvision IP surveillance system secures Ghana's International Airport
Hikvision Digital Technology and their Central African partner, Skylinks Technical Services, have recently completed the installation of an IP surveillance network for Aviance Ghana at Kotoka International Airport. A total of thirteen cameras now maintain close scrutiny of the 650-hectare site and protect passengers, aircraft, and cargo.

According to Haim Atanelov, General Manager at Skylinks Technical Services, it was necessary for them to choose a system that can deliver high resolution images at all times and all lighting conditions. Thus, four types of IP camera were installed at the airport connected to a 32-channel, RAID 5 NVR over an entirely new Gigabit network infrastructure. All the cameras feature the day/night capability of Hikvision's EXIR infrared technology, enabling them to capture good images despite poor lighting conditions.

Both the 1.3- and 3-megapixel bullet cameras employed in the warehouses has a 50-meter IR range, while the 30-meter EXIR range of the mini dome cameras deployed in the terminal building is also especially valuable during night time hours when the building lighting is partially shut down.

The airport can now claim to meet ACC3, the highest accreditation in the aviation industry. "Aviance is especially pleased with the smooth integration of the Hikvision IP system with the access control system at the four passenger gates, something which was also carefully noted by the EU ACC3 validators. Aviance was also pleased with the integration of the new system with the existing analog system, although it did show up the difference in video quality immediately. We have already agreed to add further IP cameras to the site and Aviance is committed to phasing out the old system in favor of a total Hikvision IP system as soon as possible," said Atanelov.
