Krakow Airport safe thanks to Axis solutions

Modernization of surveillance system provides high level of passenger service and safety

When choosing a solution tailored to the Krakow Balice Airport requirements, we had no hesitation in choosing a technology partner. We have worked with Axis Communications for several years and we are aware of the advantages of the manufacturer and technical capabilities.“ Krzysztof Durlak, CEO, DG ELPRO.


The mission of Krakow Airport is to achieve a leading position among European regional airports, taking care of the high level of passenger service and satisfaction. The company’s activities include the development, modernization and operation of the International Airport Krakow-Balice and to take all actions related to the operation of passenger and freight air traffic, including international border crossing in the port, in order to promote Krakow and the region. The Board of Directors relies on proven technologies in order to support the airport, including the video surveillance system guarding the safety of passengers and Krakow Airport staff.


Axis partner, DG ELPRO in cooperation with KABE Systemy Alarmowe; PKiMSA CARBOAUTOMATYKA S.A and FRB Inter-Bud took part in concept development of the modernization and digitization of the video surveillance system of Krakow Airport. The process took place in four stages. The first one, which was also the test stage, was to create a nextgeneration surveillance system for a newly created multi-story car park. A seemingly simple task turned out to be a challenge for installers, engineers and equipment. Parking levels were poorly lit and there was continuous movement of vehicles whose lights were blinding the camera. The next three stages of system design were carried out at the same time. The existing analog video surveillance system had limitations and did not have the variety of possibilities as a system based on IP technology. On the other hand it was an extended and costly system, in which image quality was sufficient in some areas. Changing the system to a entire brand new one would involve unnecessary costs and enormous effort. Therefore, an economically justified decision was made: to modernize the system and adapt it to IP. For this purpose Axis video encoders were used.


Axis devices, thanks to their extensive configuration options and innovative features made possible the acquiring of satisfactory images.
