Ultra HD video system provides comprehensive situational awareness of
the airport surface
MADRID, Spain, March 4, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - World ATM Congress, Stand
#826. Searidge Technologies, provider of surface management solutions
to Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) and airports, announced the
launch of their Enhanced Airport Vision Display (EAVD) for airport
surface management and remote towers.
EAVD is a highly advanced, customizable Human Machine Interface (HMI)
that integrates day/night visible, thermal and pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ)
cameras to seamlessly display multiple sources of real-time information
to air traffic controllers and airport operations staff (e.g. Ramp
management, security, resource management, etc.). Video images from
distributed cameras are stitched together and run through sophisticated
algorithms to offer a seamless panoramic view of the surface presented
on as many or as few monitors required by the customer.
The Searidge EAVD supports the latest technology including ultra HD
resolutions (4K), is camera and platform agnostic and offers some of
the fastest processing capabilities on the market. The system also
allows for video data overlays or augmented reality which adds valuable
static and dynamic information to the video such as thumbnail images of
targets on the surface, aircraft ID, target type, destination, gates,
runway outlines, service roads etc. to deliver comprehensive
situational awareness of the airport's surface. "Searidge initially
provided us with their remote apron management system. The flexibility
and usability of EAVD allowed us to tailor features ranging from
viewing options to user controls." says Robert Sant, Chief Operating
Officer, Malta Air Traffic Services. "The significant benefits the
system brought to our operation led Malta ATS to leverage and scale the
system in order to achieve an airport-wide low-cost ground surveillance
"Our goal with EAVD was to combine the safety and reliability of our ATC
Grade video platform, the most widely deployed video platform in ATC
today - and the most innovative elements of intelligent video
technology available on the market, from ULTRA HD to advanced
image-processing, and rapid real-time compression techniques. In
achieving this goal, we believe that for ANSPs considering video
technology EAVD provides a robust, scalable platform that will meet
today's operational needs and support the evolution of tower operations
well into the future, " says Alex Sauriol, Executive Vice President
ATM/Airport Technology, Searidge Technologies.
Built with a flexible interface for easy integration with other
ATC/airport systems, EAVD can solve a multitude of airport challenges
including elimination of blind spots, incursion prevention, hotspot
monitoring, remote tower services, and perimeter surveillance.
The Searidge Enhanced Airport Vision Display is currently available and
operational in airports in North America, Europe and the Middle East.
Searidge Technologies is a leading technology innovator providing
collaborative surface management services and solutions to airports and
Air Navigation Service providers (ANSPs) worldwide. Our unique blend of
experience in airport operations and Air Traffic Control (ATC) allows
