The equipment will be integrated into the Honeywell MaxPro System by Preferred Technologies, a Houston-based systems integrator.

“The Houston Airport System team had the objective of creating a cutting-edge deployment that highlighted the unique value of 360-degree technology in critical infrastructure, video-system design,” said Steve Donovan, Oncam Grandeye’s director of sales for the Americas. “We are pleased that HAS chose Oncam Grandeye as a key ingredient to its critically needed security solution."

The cameras will be utilized at security check points, gate areas, large, general areas such as lobbies and waiting lounges, and in hallways. Because of the superior visuals obtained with 360-degree technology, only one Oncam Grandeye camera is needed to easily cover multiple views, which would generally require multiple fixed cameras.

HAS decided upon the 360-degree experience from Oncam Grandeye because it offers many advantages. The airport system will save money by reduced camera counts, and the technology allows for retrospection, which means that managers can go back to any event and go inside an image to find a person or an incident because the camera gives them 24/7/365 situational awareness, and the de-warping software makes an image taken with a fisheye lens smooth and readily discernible.

“By deploying hundreds of 360 cameras, HAS will achieve maximized situational awareness, superior wide-area coverage with reduced blind spots, and a valuable and efficient forensic tool for critical investigations,” said Shaun Castillo, president of Preferred Technologies.
