Controlware Communications has provided an IP CCTV transmission system to Aéroports de Paris Group for the new Galerie Parisienne terminal extension at Charles de Gaulle airport.
Aéroports de Paris Group are Europe's second largest airport group, managing 14 airports, and aerodromes including Paris-Orly, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, and Paris-Le Bourget. As the airport authority for the Paris region, Aéroports de Paris requires the highest level of security to safeguard passengers, airline companies and partners.
Controlware has been working closely with the Direction Informatique et Télécommunications department at Aéroports de Paris since 2003 when they embarked on an ambitious CCTV upgrade programme to improve the level of security throughout their airports. As part of this huge project Controlware was selected to supply video codec's that enable video from analogue cameras to be streamed over IP networks. Controlware has assisted Aéroports de Paris with the evolution and expansion of their surveillance network and has supplied codec's that to date support a total of 5461 cameras.
As a service orientated organization Controlware prides itself on working closely with customers to successfully deliver even the most complex technical solutions. With more than 27 years experience and a dedicated worldwide service network Controlware helps customers such as Aéroports de Paris benefit from the very best technical solutions and a level of support that is second to none.
The Aéroports de Paris IP CCTV solution provides state-of-the-art video surveillance encompassing both airside and passenger areas including: luggage sorting, check in desks, access to restricted areas, ATM cash machines, car parks and perimeter monitoring applications. The integrated IP CCTV system enables Aéroports de Paris to constantly monitor, record and manage video from thousands of analogue cameras at any location on their network and to operate a crisis center that can be used in case of emergencies.
At a cost of € 645 million the Galerie Parisienne extension to terminals 2E and 2F at Charles de Gaulle is the largest boarding satellite in France and provides further capacity for both planes and passengers. The Galerie Parisienne can accommodate up to 26 contact aircraft, including 6 giant Airbus A380 aircraft simultaneously enabling an additional 8.5 million passengers to use Charles de Gaulle every year. To bring the Galerie Parisienne onto the existing Aéroports de Paris IP CCTV network 150 high performance 4-port video codec's were deployed connected to 600 cameras. Each codec enables live viewing of video at 25 f/s 4CIF and 12 f/s 4CIF for recording.
Carmelo Musumeci, General Manager for Controlware Central Europe, adds that "Controlware is proud to continue its successful partnership with Aéroports de Paris and to help ensure high levels of security are maintained throughout the new Galerie Parisienne terminal extension at Charles de Gaulle. The combination of high performance solutions backed up by a proactive service and support network is crucial for our customers and especially important for large-scale and evolving projects like Aéroports de Paris."
