BIT and Lenrianta (Duty free shops network in Pulkovo 1 & 2 airports) companies have successfully finished the first stage of a distributed video surveillance project covering Lenrianta sites. The customer company intended to build a system to control all business processes while providing additional client safety.
During a set of collaborative seminars and discussions, an optimal networking solution had been developed to address the customer's needs. Axxon Enterprise platform from Axxon (former ITV) had been chosen to form the system core.
The system has a distributed network architecture. Video servers are located at Pulkovo-1 and Pulkovo-2 airports using wired and fiber networks for data transmission. Over 50 CCTV cameras have been deployed at different locations varying by image contents, lighting and weather conditions.
BIT company professionals organized the needed number of remote operator workplaces using networking capabilities of Axxon Enterprise platform. Each remote operator's monitor is capable of displaying a set of camera images matching the operator's user rights status within the system. The administering is being done by customer's staff qualified personnel under BIT tech support service supervision.
The next phases of the project should be system expansion while introducting intelligent video sensors.
