Qognify secures expansion at Hefei Xinqiao International Airport
Qognify’s advanced IP video surveillance solution expansion geared to address challenges of public transit, while increasing operational efficiencies at a reduced total cost of ownership
Qognify, formerly NICE Security, announced that Hefei Xingiao International Airport is expanding use of its Video Management System (VMS).
Originally implemented in 2010, airport officials are scaling the Qognify solution as the airport increases flight volumes domestically and internationally.
Hefei Xinqiao International Airport is the main airport serving Hefei, the capital of Anhui Province in East China, currently averaging 600 domestic and international flights per week, the airport is facing significant growth: it is estimated that in 2020, over 11 million passengers and 150,000 tons of cargo will pass through the airport. The task of securing all of this activity and covering a 3,400-meter runway, as well as a 110,000 square-meter terminal building, is handled by Qoginfy’s (VMS), with centralized management of 1,200 cameras.
The airport uses Qognify’s VMS to monitor, manage and record activity within the terminal for enhanced security. The centralized management of the system improves operational efficiency and lowers the airport’s total cost of ownership (TCO). Additional advanced capabilities include Qognify’s patented Visual Parameters Optimization solution and NVR-based Camera Tampering Detection that ensure high-quality video and capturing of the relevant field of view, at all times.
