Vivotek IP8332 cameras provide megapixel security for Phuket International Airport
Faced with an outdated system, the Phuket International Airport undertook a project to increase security by providing better monitoring on the taxiway connecting runways to the terminal and other airport facilities. Four Vivotek IP8332 day/night H.264 bullet cameras were installed at strategic locations on the taxiway and by the boarding gates. The cameras are supported by Vivotekâ€™s video management software ST7501.
With the new cameras at hand, installation was easy for the airport's security team. The cameras support 802.3af-compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE), which allowed the airport to leverage its existing Ethernet infrastructure to power the cameras and handle data traffic. With the IP8332 IP cameras the airport saw a dramatic improvement in video quality from the cameras' megapixel sensors. Image resolution rose from 720 x 486 all the way up to 1280 x 800.
The Vivotek cameras even perform well at night, made possible with removable IR-cut filters and IR illuminators. IP66-rated outdoor housing provides protection against dust, fumes, debris, and rain.
The airport especially values the scalability of the new video surveillance system. The system can be expanded to an unlimited number of cameras without having to use proprietary hardware.
