Hikvision IP CCTV system secures Ghana’s International Airport
Ghana’s ‘Kotoka International’ can now claim to meet ACC3, the highest accreditation in the aviation industry
Hikvision, the global leader in video surveillance equipment, and their Central African partner, Skylinks Technical Services Ltd, have recently completed the installation of an IP CCTV surveillance network for Aviance Ghana Ltd at Kotoka International Airport. A total of thirteen cameras now maintain close scrutiny of the 650 hectare site and protect passengers, aircraft and cargo.
Haim Atanelov, General Manager at Skylinks Technical Services Ltd says,
“We were challenged to deliver high resolution images at all times and in all lighting conditions. It is these pressures that helped us in choosing Hikvision components, with their robust build quality, excellent video quality, and quick and simple installation and operation due to the user-friendly software. It also helped that the products offer very competitive prices and are accompanied by after-sales service and technical support from a first-class team.”
“Aviance is especially pleased with the smooth integration of the Hikvision IP system with the access control system at the 4 passenger gates, something which was also carefully noted by the EU ACC3 validators. Aviance was also pleased with the integration of the new system with the existing analog CCTV system, although it did show up the difference in video quality immediately. We have already agreed to add further IP cameras to the site and Aviance is committed to phasing out the old system in favour of a totally Hikvision IP system as soon as possible.”
Four types of IP camera were installed at the Airport connected to a 32-channel, RAID 5 NVR over an entirely new Gigabit network infrastructure. All the cameras feature the true day/night capability of Hikvision’s EXIR infrared technology. This guarantees that they always deliver clear images, even in the warehouses where lighting conditions are not good. Both the 1.3MP and 3MP bullet cameras employed in the warehouses boast an exceptional 50 meter IR range while the 30 meter EXIR range of the mini dome cameras deployed in the terminal building is also especially valuable during night time hours when the building lighting is partially shut down.
