Viracopos Airport tightens security with high definition cameras
The installation of 1004 HDTV Axis cameras makes Viracopos airport safer for passengers and employees
"Viracopos Airport invests a lot and spares no effort in implementing improvements to make the traveling experience through Viracopos better and better.” Luiz Alberto Küster, CEO of Aeroportos Brasil Viracopos.
Viracopos International Airport, located in the Metropolitan Region of Campinas, one of the most important technology centers in Brazil, is the second-largest cargo terminal in Brazil, and the number of passengers this facility serves is also growing every year. Since its privatization, the airport has undergone a series of improvements under the management of the airport’s operator Aeroportos Brasil Viracopos. The operator is going to invest US $3.8 billion over its 30-year concession agreement, transforming it into the largest and most modern airport in Latin America. This video surveillance project was needed to prepare the airport to handle this situation.
The project involved the installation of 1,004 Axis HDTV network cameras, including the vandal-resistant AXIS M3004-V and AXIS P3364-V. The internal and external versions of PTZ camera AXIS Q6034 were also used. Some of these cameras were used together with software from Axis partner Aimetis for license plate recognition. Another set of equipment has been used with software provided by Innercalc, also an Axis partner, to enable facial recognition of people in the airport terminal.
The project enhanced security throughout the airport premises, using an advanced video surveillance solution that allows for the identification of suspects even before boarding.
