International Airport in U.A.E. Selects VideoSphere Solution with Integrated Analytics for Enhanced Security



    OTTAWA, Aug. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - March Networks(R) (TSX:MN), a leading
provider of intelligent IP video and business analysis applications, announced
today that Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) International Airport has selected the
VideoSphere(TM) intelligent video management solution to enhance passenger and
asset security in its main terminal and adjacent facilities.
    Located in the United Arab Emirates, RAK serves 27 airlines linking it to
destinations in the Middle and Far East, Central Asia, the Indian subcontinent
and Africa. The airport is in the midst of a US $16 million renovation and
expansion project, which includes two new terminals, a VIP lounge, automated
passenger and baggage handling facilities, and a cargo collection center.
    The VideoSphere solution will provide RAK with real-time operational
intelligence and advanced video management. More than 100 VideoSphere encoders
with embedded video analytics will increase the capabilities of the airport's
existing CCTV network by automatically alerting staff to events such as an
unattended bag or unauthorized person entering a restricted area. New
VideoSphere recording platforms will ensure extended archiving, while powerful
video management software enables efficient administration of the integrated
IP video network.
    The solution will be delivered by Oasis Enterprises, an experienced March
Networks systems provider, based in Dubai.
    "The VideoSphere solution provides Ras Al Khaimah airport with
world-class surveillance capabilities in keeping with its new,
state-of-the-art passenger and cargo services," said Basel Al Aref, General
Manager of Professional Projects Division, Oasis Enterprises. "The analytics
capabilities in particular are of critical importance, enabling the authority
to maintain the highest security standards for its customers and partners."
    March Networks President and CEO Peter Strom said, "Our VideoSphere
solution enables airport authorities worldwide to extend their investments in
existing video infrastructure as they transition to next-generation IP video
technology. We are pleased to provide Ras Al Khaimah with high performance IP
video software and systems that can meet its current and longer-term critical
infrastructure security requirements."
