Security technology developer Qognify has announced that Hefei Xingiao International Airport in Eastern China is expanding use of the company’s video management system (VMS). Originally implemented in 2010, the airport is now planning to expand the solution following increases in domestic and international traffic.
Hefei Xinqiao International Airport currently serves an average of 600 domestic and international flights per week and estimates that in 2020, more than 11 million passengers and 150,000 tons of cargo will pass through the airport.
Hefei International currently uses 1,200 cameras and 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. Additional advanced capabilities include Qognify’s Visual Parameters Optimization solution and network video recorder (NVR)-based Camera Tampering Detection technology.
Yang Jing, director of technology, Hefei Xingiao International Airport, said, “With Qognify’s advanced technology and in-depth knowledge of the airport industry, we’re able to provide our passengers a safe environment. Employees have a scalable, easy-to-access and stable security solution that monitors and manages surveillance of our terminal building as well as other areas.
“Our positive experience with the Qognify security solution has given us strong confidence in its capabilities. We plan to increase the investment in our video surveillance system even further, allowing us to improve our customers’ satisfaction and to fulfill growth and expansion plans.”
Moti Shabtai, president, Qognify, said, “When customers gain such a high level of confidence in our technology through its capabilities and the benefits it provides, and experience the value our expertise brings to the table, it’s a testament to the intense focus we’ve placed on providing solutions that go beyond effectively meeting security needs. We look forward to supporting Hefei Airport as it continues to grow.”
