March Networks, a provider of intelligent network video and business analysis applications, announced that Australia Pacific Airports Melbourne (APAM) is expanding its existing March Networks video system significantly and enhancing surveillance and monitoring capabilities with the company's VideoSphere solution.
Responsible for the security of more than 24 million travelers annually and more than 30 percent of Australia's airfreight market, Melbourne Airport staff are using the March Networks systems to monitor activities in real time and quickly access high-quality archived video from a centralized control room. They are also using the network video to maintain customer service and operational excellence, through applications such as taxi queue monitoring, luggage trolley tracking and baggage handling oversight.
Working with experienced March Networks solution provider Nedax Systems, APAM is transitioning its hard-wired analog camera infrastructure to the IP network with VideoSphere Edge Encoders connected to March Networks IP recording platforms. The phased deployment also includes VideoSphere Decode Stations, which facilitate the management and operational interaction with the video system from several different airport locations. In addition, a large number of VideoSphere fixed and megapixel PTZ network cameras will be installed in strategic locations as part of a planned expansion of terminal and gate facilities.
