Seattle airport migrates to IP

The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport recently completed a major overhaul of its surveillance system with the help of VMS provider Genetec.

According to a statement issued by the company, Sea-Tac, a division of the Port of Seattle, wanted to integrate its six disparate, analog-based surveillance systems with one fully merged IP system. Based of the recommendation of integrator for the project, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies chose Genetec’s Omnicast solution to help tie the systems together.

The entire systems consists of Bosch, Panasonic and Pelco analog cameras integrated using IP encoders. Sea-Tac also decided to use Pivot3 serverless storage solutions to archive video.

"Working with Ingersoll Rand and our partners on the Sea-Tac Airport project was truly a collaborative effort with long-lasting benefits for the end user," said Danny Peleg, director of transportation market for Genetec. "I also commend Sea-Tac Airport for not only looking at the efficiency gains they can experience with Omnicast, but for truly leveraging its capabilities to be more green."
