How Continental Airlines and OMNI Security Were Able to Provide Real-Time Digital Images to a Central Control Center for Security and Surveillance at Newark International Airport
Continental Airlines and OMNI Security needed to solve the increasing costs of analog security and surveillance of Continental's employee parking lots. Continental Airlines employees at Newark International Airport were more concerned about their personal safety after the Sept. 11, 2001, tragedy. Motorola's Canopy point-to-point wireless technology was connected to full-motion cameras relaying full-motion sound and video to a command center where security officers monitor activity and control cameras, gates and phones. As a result employees feel safe with the new security system and its initial success. Besides increasing security, the airport authority has eliminated recurring costs.
