McCarran International Airport Expands its Pelco Security System in New Terminal

Schneider Electric recently announced the successful expansion of its Pelco by Schneider Electric Endura IP video management system (VMS) in the newly opened Terminal 3 at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

The airport, which ranked 20th-busiest in the world in 2011, added more than 900 Pelco cameras and integrated the video system with an access control system to provide mission-critical surveillance for public and back-of-house areas, security checkpoints, U.S. Customs and Border Protection sections, baggage systems, the tram system, and parking facilities. This expanded system integrates with an existing Endura solution already deployed in McCarran, allowing security personnel to effectively safeguard people and property throughout the entire airport.

The intelligent, yet easy-to-use Endura VMS was originally chosen by the security team at McCarran International Airport in 2006 for its reliability, enhanced operational flexibility, centralized management, cost-effective recording, integration and future growth capabilities.

“Schneider Electric’s Pelco security systems have played a crucial role in protecting McCarran Airport and its patrons for more than a decade,” said David Bourgon, manager of IT services, McCarran International Airport. “With more than 41 million people visiting McCarran in 2011, the Endura solution provides us with the scalability that our airport requires as well as the tools to effectively monitor and quickly respond to events.”

According to airport officials, the system, which includes cameras in seven buildings, can also be accessed by various local law enforcement agencies and security groups. With the extension, the security team at McCarran also implemented the Endura mapping application, which makes use of existing geographical information system maps, to provide easy reference points for the cameras. The mapping gives operators the ability to pull up a map of an area at the airport and visibly see all of the cameras in that area. Users can then click on specific cameras in that area to view the video.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with McCarran International Airport and support them in the expansion of the security system in Terminal 3,” said Sam Belbina, vice president of Pelco video security, Schneider Electric. “McCarran has long been on the cutting edge of airport technology. The Endura VMS is the ideal solution for this airport, providing mission-critical surveillance operations, around-the-clock monitoring and unwavering reliability.”

With a long and prestigious history of offering high-quality, innovative products and exceptional customer service, Schneider Electric, with its Pelco video portfolio, has become one of the most sought-after video security solutions for airports around the world. The Pelco airport solutions not only improve airport security, but also increase operational efficiencies, enhance perimeter protection, more readily allocate resources and respond to any number of situations that may arise.
