IndigoVision enhances safety at Birmingham Airport

IndigoVision enhances safety at Birmingham Airport
Background
The aim of the project was to streamline processes, bring greater efficiency and upgrade the existing analogue system to IP. With six existing distributed control rooms the intention was to consolidate them into one centralized Control Center. Identifying the need for situational awareness, communication and improved visibility it became clear that an open system with the ability to integrate multiple systems was required for Birmingham Airport’s security upgrade.

Solution
Working alongside IndigoVision, ATEC Fire & Security designed a new fully integrated and centralized Airport Control Center. The initial US$1 million investment was returned within nine months, achieved as a result of IndigoVision Control Center’s built in counter flow analytics, consolidated resources, and improved playback functionality resulting in a downturn in accidents.

The existing 260 analog camera system monitored over six distributed control rooms were centralized to one Airport Control Center and upgraded IP through the use of IndigoVision’s 9000 encoders. Since the initial install Birmingham Airport has expanded to over 650 cameras, employing four generations of IndigoVision products including the Ultra 2K and Ultra 5K cameras. Control Center’s open platform enabled the integration of multiple on site alarm systems including access control and built-in counter flow analytics.

ATEC’s Guardlink utilizes Control Center to send and receive alarm input and output commands for fire detection, environmental monitoring, baggage screening, perimeter detection and baggage detection; culminating in over 8000 alarm inputs being managed from the one centralised Airport Control Center. Streamlined processes, increased efficiency and enhanced safety achieved for the Birmingham Airport.
