Searidge Technologies, a global provider of Remote Tower and Surface Optimization
solutions to airports and Air Navigation Service providers (ANSPs), has successfully
integrated Bosch IP cameras into its solution offering.
Searidge leverages the Bosch MIC IP starlight 7000 HD pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) and
DINION IP starlight 8000 MP cameras to help airport operators monitor and manage
surface operations, safely and efficiently. The ability to monitor live traffic, day and
night, and in all weather conditions is critical to operating an airport around-the-
clock, 365 days per year.
As part of the Searidge offering, video streams from multiple Bosch starlight
cameras are stitched together and run through sophisticated processing algorithms
to deliver seamless panoramic views of the apron, gate, taxiway, and runway areas
of the airport surface. Video is displayed live to users, such as air traffic
controllers, airport operators, security personnel, and more, and is archived for
future playback and review.
“The critical nature of our customers’ airport operations requires high camera
reliability and visual output,’ says Thuan Nguyen, Head of Operations, Searidge
Technologies. “We selected the Bosch starlight line because they offer proven
quality, backed by strong sales and engineering support.’
Bosch starlight cameras are designed to deliver excellent images in the lowest light
conditions. They produce full colour images in the dark beyond the point where
other cameras have switched to monochrome. The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP
camera offers five-megapixel resolution and provides excellent colour performance
even with minimal ambient light. The MIC IP starlight 7000 HD are ruggedized PTZ
cameras built to withstand harsh conditions, including extreme temperatures, rain
and snow, high wind gusts and vibration.
Bosch starlight cameras are currently deployed by Searidge Technologies to support
a variety of surface management operations in airports worldwide, including its
Remote Situational Awareness and Zone Occupancy solution at Dubai International
airport, Remote Tower solution at Budapest Airport, and Remote Airport concept of
operation at Milano Malpensa and Linate airports.
“The integration of Bosch starlight cameras with the innovative airport surface
management solutions developed by Searidge Technologies is an excellent example
of how video surveillance can extend beyond security to improve operations and
efficiency for facilities worldwide,’ said Jacquelyn Hall-Davies, Vice President of
Sales, Canada, for Bosch Security Systems. “The Bosch team is proud to have
supported Searidge Technologies with projects here in Canada and look forward to
future deployments of the solution around the globe.’
