King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA), Saudi Arabia’s third largest airport, has deployed Avigilon’s high definition (HD) surveillance system in and around the airport.
The airport is deploying the system by Avigilon—a producer of HD and megapixel video surveillance solutions—at the facility’s 13 parking lots, its terminal lobbies, duty free shops, retail market, restaurants and coffee shops.
“The Avigilon HD surveillance system gives us the tools to effectively review and take appropriate action as quickly as possible to resolve conflicts and secure parking lots, terminal lobbies, duty free shops, restaurants, retail market, and coffee shops,” said Adel Safadi, manager of CCTV & Video Analytics Systems at Al Musbah Trading Group, who is responsible for the Avigilon HD surveillance system at KAIA. “Using Avigilon control center software, we can retrieve superior evidence at a phenomenal speed,” he said.
A total of 274 Avigilon HD cameras ranging from 1 MP to 16 MP have been deployed around the airport. All of Avigilon’s HD cameras are streamed and monitored around the clock in the airport’s state-of-the-art control room. Security personnel manage the Avigilon HD surveillance system using Avigilon control center enterprise “network video management software” (NVMS) with HD stream management, according to the company.
