Customer profile

Located at the Lester B. Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Canada, Vista Cargo Terminals offers a full-service multi-modal cargo terminal concept designed to offer a full range and flexibility of facilities and services to airlines, freight forwarders, expediters, couriers, and custom brokers, among other companies.

Technology & integration


  • Lower cost of ownership through flexible storage options
  • Superior image quality through the support of network cameras
  • Tremendous time savings in video review using Advanced Search features


Vista Cargo Terminals selects Aimetis Symphony™ Integrated Intelligent Video Management Software to monitor cargo traffic throughout the terminal. Vista now enjoys superior image quality and time savings in video review as a result of upgrading to a pure IP based system from its previous analogue system.

Business challenge

Aimetis' Symphony allows Vista Cargo to utilise network storage and cameras which in turn drives down cost

Operating a facility which is a combination of an air-side apron for overnight parking of aircraft, warehouse space, and a suite of office spaces ranging in size from 500 to 10,000 square  feet, Vista Cargo needed a flexible and intelligent solution to monitor "air-side" and "truck-side" traffic in and around its facility. The previous DVR and CCTV cameras did not provide satisfactory image quality, and a 30-day video retention policy was not being met. Further, the "soft costs" of the DVR system were high, as the video review and retrieval process was cumbersome.


Unlike the previous DVR, Aimetis Symphony™ is a standards-based, open software platform leveraging commercial-off-the-shelf hardware, allowing Vista Cargo to utilise network storage and cameras which in turn drives down cost. Today, Vista not only enjoys lower cost of ownership through flexible camera and storage options, but also superior image quality as a result of the network cameras. Finally, Aimetis' robust video analytics allow Vista users to pinpoint and export interesting events much quicker than the previous DVR, saving valuable time.

"Thanks to Aimetis, we can review timelines and video clips during especially high activity periods. This enables us to spot patterns and problems, and to implement best practices to ensure the terminal runs efficiently. Aimetis has taken us into the future with Symphony™, since its intelligence provides us with the tools for better management and physical security," explains Wilma Clarke, Director, Leasing & Operations of Vista Cargo Terminals.
