Avianca Airlines has a powerful tool to fight drug trafficking. The use of surveillance cameras in the state of the art American Dynamics CCTV and management systems digital video of Tyco International Circuit, authorities airlines can stop illegal activities and provide visual evidence to prosecute drug traffickers.

The largest airline in Colombia, South America, Avianca operates from several international airports with daily flights to major US, Europe and South and Central American cities.

A customer lifetime of Tyco International, Avianca recently decided to install American Dynamics SpeedDome programmable dome cameras and systems Intellex digital video management for greater control over airport security.

Today, Avianca protects their assigned gates and warehouses loaded with nearly 100 Domo and positioned fixed cameras to record the activity specified in and around the perimeter of their facilities. CCTV footage recorded by Intellex, providing easy access video. Intellex systems are connected through a local area network and can be viewed using the network client software from American Dynamics.

After replacing old appliances with video management systems Intellex digital video, Avianca security can also access archive material interest in a matter of minutes rather than having to run through hours of videotape to find what they are looking for. In addition, records banknotes video sequences directly from Intellex Onto dome cameras 24/7 in high traffic areas. For less crowded areas, such as luggage storage, officials have scheduled Intellex to record sequences only when the dome cameras have some movement in his field of vision. This system helps Avianca use the wide band more efficiently valuable by only recording of images of interest.

Avianca also purchased a system switching matrix, which makes it easy for operators to manage a closed-circuit television complex. Security personnel can control more cameras and easily switch between different camera views and monitors the control room. This provides greater situational awareness that helps identify and address problematic activities more effectively.

“The systems help us prevent illegal or dangerous incidents between passengers and employees,” said Edgar Cano, managing director of National Airports Avianca. For example, the use of American Dynamics Intellex cameras and security personnel Avianca work alongside the authorities of Colombia to monitor illegal activities and arrest suspects. In several cases, the airline drug smugglers caught by identifying illicit behavior through recordings of the CCTV cameras on Intellex.

An example of real life was presented on April 18, 2006, when unaccompanied 5-year-old girl arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport aboard Avianca Airlines Flight # 020 in Bogota, Colombia with two suitcases hard sided. An inspector conducting a routine examination opened one of the bags from the girl and noticed an unusually thick side. The inspector canvassed the lining of the suitcase and discovered a white powdery substance that field tested positive for heroin. The official seized heroin weighing about 1,042 grams. While customs contact the Administration for Children’s Services, Avianca officials retrieve surveillance images to determine whether the child’s mother acted suspiciously on the tape when he dropped the child off.

In an event of such magnitude as the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro the process and safety planning is vital and a huge challenge. 500,000 foreign visitors, 7.5 million tickets sold and 10,500 athletes competing. On security issues they had 85,000 workers, and its total budget amounted to 895 million dollars.

The Search

Government officials Rio de Janeiro sought a comprehensive video surveillance solution to control large areas in and around the Olympic Park Rio de Janeiro-Copacabana, Maracana, Deodoro and Barra da Tijuca. Surveillance also required certain places like the Olympic Stadium, Sambadrome, Maracanãzinho Olympic BMX Center, Beach Volleyball Arena, Olympic and Paralympic Village, adjacent streets are exclusive of staff, athletes and official press.

This large project required cameras capable of playing HD images, to make advanced video analysis, key aspects in monitoring events with high traffic of people.

The Solution

They chose Technology Dahua as their provider of high quality projects for several reasons:

  • It has the second largest market share worldwide (as reported by the market research firm IHS)
  • Fulfilling all requirements of the tender was the best solution with the highest performance.
  • The cameras have intelligent technology with integrated functions such as sending an alert control of forgotten objects, unauthorized access.
  • It has multi-transmission that lets you record and monitor real-time images and high resolution function.

Dahua supply for the event was 1823 units IP HD PTZ camera DOME 30x optical zoom. They were installed in strategic locations so that staff could observe the Olympic complex and its surroundings.

Video transmission was through a private network of monitoring stations Olympic Park and Operations Center Rio de Janeiro, from which you could clearly visualize each person and objects ensuring security.

This helped to identify medical emergencies, problems of vandalism and other incidents requiring prompt attention.

Benefits Obtained

Dahua project contributed to the security of the Olympic Games Rio 2016:

  • Providing technical and commercial support including personnel training and management and system configuration.
  • He coordinated a complete integration between cameras and third parties involved in the security project

 “The Dahua products were amazing throughout the process. Its image quality is much better compared to other brands, “said the Safety of the City of Rio de Janeiro, Thompson Peixoto.
