“The use of network video management software is a critical element of our airport physical security strategy,” said Fiona Lander, executive general manager, Perth Airport. “Based on our analysis of the market, Aimetis VMS stood out from other software in terms of reliability and quality for projects of this large scale”, she said.
Initially, Perth Airport will install Aimetis VMS to 570 new and existing analogue and IP cameras, with approximately 20 per cent of cameras running Aimetis video analytics. The number of cameras is estimated to expand significantly, as the airport redevelopment unfolds and growth continues.
“Aimetis partnered with Altech Computers, a leading solution provider and local distributor for Aimetis provided the VMS/Analytics and technical support. “Aimetis Symphony is the centerpiece of our network video solutions offering,” said Adam Storoschenko, national surveillance manager, Altech Computers. “The software is highly scalable to meet the current and future needs of large enterprise projects like the Perth Airport.”
