When a group airport executives from Latin America came north to look at the best in airport security technology, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency and the American Association of Airport Executives took them to Dallas Love Field.
The Avigilon Control Center at Dallas Love Field
There, a high-definition surveillance system from Vancouver, British Columbia-based Avigilon is part of the airport's modernization and expansion. The Love Field Modernization Program renovations include a new centralized concourse with 20 gates, a remodeled lobby, expanded baggage claim area, and a new ticketing wing.
The executives toured the airport May 18.
The first phase of the program included the replacement of two existing surveillance systems with the Avigilon gear. That included installation of encoders to leverage the airport’s existing 80 analog cameras, and the addition of more than 40 new Avigilon megapixel HD cameras. Future phases will replace all analog cameras with new megapixel cameras, add hundreds of new megapixel cameras, and eliminate the two remaining separate surveillance systems.
“Before the launch of the Modernization Program, Love Field had four separate video surveillance systems which made it challenging for law enforcement to monitor activities and airport officials to maintain these systems. The Love Field Modernization Program is transforming the Dallas Love Field airport into a benchmark for best practices in airport efficiency, service, and security,” said Dave Tynan, vice-president of global sales and marketing for Avigilon. “We are honored to have the opportunity to also showcase the benefits of the Avigilon HD Surveillance System to the delegation of Latin American airport executives.”
The Avigilon Control Center platform captures, transmits, manages, stores, archives, plays back, and exports HD video while efficiently handling bandwidth and storage. Its modular, open architecture allows system designers to integrate Avigilon solutions with existing assets including analog and IP cameras, access control and other intrusion systems. In 2010, Avigilon Control Center won the Frost & Sullivan Surveillance New Product Innovation of the Year award.
Avigilon systems are finding their way to all sorts of facilities. To read about the use of Avigilon in a county detention center environment, click on the Government Video feature here.
