What is Remote Screening?
Remote screening allows security checkpoint operators to be positioned away from the lane to perform X-ray image analysis. By doing so, it provides airports with increased flexibility as screening agents can share the workload to counter the effects of traffic variation and improve operational efficiency.
Otherwise called Centralized Image Processing (CIP), the technology allows airports to control the lane to operator ratio thanks to multiplexing, which removes the one to one relationship between screeners and X-ray scanners. When traffic is high, multiple operators can analyze the images coming from a single lane. When traffic is low, a single operator can analyze the images coming from multiple lanes.
