Avigilon , a supplier of HD and megapixel video surveillance systems, announced that Airberg, the UK's specialist food exporter has deployed its HD surveillance system to comply with government-regulated security requirements, ensure asset protection, and provide a safe working environment for employees at its headquarters and neighboring storage facility.
"By deploying Avigilon's advanced, HD surveillance system that captures even the smallest detail, we can achieve 'known shipper' status, eliminating the inconvenience and expense of having our cargo checked every time we ship goods by air, a savings of more than US$1 million each year," said Tony Coates, Sales Director and co-owner at Airberg. "With the HD surveillance system in place, we can also protect our facility from theft and vandalism, minimize the loss and damage of goods, and ensure the safety of our employees."
Airberg manages the HD surveillance system using Control Center network VMS with HD stream management and installed 17 HD cameras at both the main building and storage facility. Two Avigilon HD cameras have been installed on the exterior of the buildings at both the north and south sides to monitor the parking lots and surrounding yard and one at each entrance for complete facial recognition. The remaining Avigilon HD cameras were installed throughout the interior of the buildings for complete coverage of the entire operational process. Airberg also installed Avigilon analog video encoders to boost the performance of its existing analog-based cameras and two HD NVRs to store 30 days of continuous surveillance video. The Avigilon HD surveillance system operates 24/7 and is monitored live by a team of three staff during business hours.
By installing the Avigilon surveillance system, Airberg has met the security, health, and conformance requirements to be certified as a "known shipper" and can ship goods by air more quickly and at a lower cost than before. Leveraging footage captured by the Avigilon HD surveillance system, Airberg can also protect itself from suspicious workplace injury claims or substantiate its own insurance claims to lower operational costs. In addition, Airberg can more quickly and successfully investigate and prevent incidents of vandalism or robbery by being able to provide police with identifiable and useable evidence.
