IT Gallery Computers (Pvt) Limited, Sri Lanka and Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co. Ltd, China, donated a Hikvision temperature screening thermographic camera to Airport and Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) Ltd  recently, to help identify people with abnormal body temperatures.

CEO of IT Gallery, Dilantha Perera said, ‘’As a socially responsible corporate, we are extending our support in this hour of need introducing latest technology solutions to help BIA. Safety of the people around us is of utmost importance right now as we are wading through tough times and we need to stay together and support each other if we are to overcome this.”This Thermographic camera is a full standalone solution that combines the storing of the video footage using a Network Video Recorder (NVR) and incorporates two lenses. There is also the possibility of seeing both the optical image and the thermal image on the same screen and the footage recorded with each individual’s face and the detected temperature are stored for further analysis. Its in-built alarm system notifies as soon as it detects a person with abnormal temperature and its AI detection minimizes false alarms from other heat sources.

‘’Hikvision temperature screening solutions promise an accuracy of 0.5C and are reliable and effective unlike the unbranded thermometers that do not guarantee an accuracy in their readings. Thermometers have their own disadvantages such as time consumption, manual procedure and are not effective for places with long queues,’’ he said.
