|In early 2010, the Santa Rosa International Airport in El Oro, Ecuador opened to the public. This airport deals with both cargo and passenger traffic. The new airport will enable growth and development for Ecuador by encouraging new opportunities for growth in business and tourism. It offers flights to major cities in Ecuador like Guayaquil and Quito as well as the United States. The US$44 million international airport includes a 5,000 sq. m. terminal building. A 2,000m x 45m runway is capable of handling some of the world's largest aircraft. |
Security was the primary concern for the Ecuadorian government. They needed to be able to monitor passengers the entire time they were on the airport premise. Crystal clear images were required to make identification simple. To meet these challenges Santa Rosa airport selected cutting edge MESSOA IP-cameras for their video surveillance system. Traditional analog CCTV had many limits such as expensive installation cost over large areas and requiring the use of many obtrusive cables. IP solutions offer a single, scalable, integrated solution which provides high-quality video surveillance at a fraction of the cost.
A total of 44 network cameras were installed to monitor the full range of the airport. Four different camera models were selected for their strengths. 40 sets (NIC830 + NIC835) were chosen because they used Power Over Ethernet (PoE) thus reducing hardware requirements. Also, they employ MESSOA's high-sensitivity Lumii™ II technology, which delivers sharp and highly detailed images even in low light conditions. These solidly built cameras are suited to round-the-clock monitoring applications and feature a vandal-proof and water-proof housing that enables it to capture crucial images even in extreme conditions.
4 sets (NIC930PRO + NIC950PRO) were chosen for their wide coverage area and ability to get detailed images even while using digital or optical zoom. A hybrid (CCTV/network) output ensures that repairs are quick and easy. A 360° continuous pan operation range with a max pan speed of 400°/sec ensures a quick response time. MESSOA’s Smart Focus technology use a built-in nine-point focus indicator that enables the camera to focus precisely and automatically on objects, relieving users of the need to adjust the focus manually.
