CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. -- Global ePoint, Inc., a leading manufacturer of surveillance security technologies, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Tops Digital Security, has entered the airport security market with its first contract from a municipal airport. The name of the airport was not disclosed for security reasons.
Tops has installed at the airport a turnkey solution that provides cameras with digital video recording (DVR) capability for closed-circuit TV security and access control equipment with proximity card readers. Key factors in the selection of the Tops equipment included the high quality of the recorded video data playback and the system's ease of use by airport personnel. Tops is a total custom solutions provider of enterprise video surveillance systems designed for high-quality video capture and central monitoring in the high-end commercial, industrial and government electronic security markets and was recently acquired by Global ePoint.

"The launch of our custom Tops product into the airport security market complements the marketing of our Perpetual Digital surveillance product to airports and further expands our growing presence in aviation security," said Toresa Lou, Global ePoint's Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to focus strongly on homeland security on the ground and in the skies, both in the U.S. and internationally, with such products as our Cockpit Door Surveillance Systems (CDSS) and computers for X-ray equipment to scan luggage and cargo at airports."
Global AirWorks, the Company's aviation division, specializes in commercial aircraft surveillance systems, such as the CDSS, which uses digital video technology to allow pilots to monitor safely from behind the secured cockpit door activity in the airplane's cabin. The contract manufacturing division makes computers that run X-ray scanning equipment in airports.
