Harness The Wind
Harness The Wind

Securing economic expansion Chile is without a doubt one of the largest exporters of copper in the world, something that accounts for its strong trade relations with the emerging economic superpower, China. Despite these rich mineral deposits and promising dealings, Chile has a limited supply of energy resources and has therefore taken a number of progressive steps in support of renewable energy sources. Consequently, wind farms are popping up all over the country. Naturally ensuing this development are the means to monitor and secure these highly important areas. Near the town of Los Vilos, the two wind farms have recently been built. They share a video surveillance system from the systems integrator, Dessin Electrónica Ltda., and TKH Security Solutions USA, the manufacturer of advanced global video surveillance solutions. This new surveillance system includes an array of cameras, sensors, communication systems, viewing and management workstations, and network video recorders (NVR). It is intended to monitor the wind turbines and manage the farm’s perimeter for security purposes. Centralized oversight Using Siqura high-speed PTZ IP dome cameras to monitor every two or three wind turbines, video streams are sent to a central control room. The system is configured with video motion detection, and motion sensors are connected to the cameras’ input/output ports. This makes it possible to alert operators in the control room of unusual or suspicious occurrences. Siqura cameras are also mounted at various points along the perimeter of the wind farm terrains, including the main entrances and visitor viewing areas. In addition to image material, audio streams are sent to Siqura S-60 D decoders, allowing for public announcements to be made over an intercom system. From the control center, security personnel keep a close eye on the situation and take action when necessary through the video management system, Siqura VMS Pro. Siqura VMS Pro is a multiserver, multi-user IP surveillance management system used for monitoring real-time and recorded video, audio, and text data, and to control cameras and I/O devices. The software supports surveillance systems consisting of digital IP cameras, video servers, and recorders in IP surveillance networks. Through the intelligent search options and event handling included in Siqura VMS Pro, relevant recordings will be saved on one of two hardware network video recorders (Siqura i-NVR). Via this centralized VMS system, operators can view live video, search recordings, and manage intrusion, access, and deterrence controls. Ultimately, this enables personnel to ensure the immediate safety of the wind farm and its employees and visitors, as well as to use video images for forensic verification if required. Ensuring a successful surveillance solution    Siqura cameras are mounted at various points along the perimeter of the wind farm terrains With such a multifaceted system, engineers from Dessin and Siqura did extensive testing throughout the design and implementation stages of the project to ensure its success. The initial testing was carried out at Dessin’s own testing facilities and entailed a demonstration of the system to the end-user. Thereafter, Dessin and Siqura tested the system at the wind farms upon implementation, giving the systems integrator and manufacturer the opportunity to fine-tune the network’s configuration. The ultimate solution was tested in a final demonstration for the end-user’s management team, with gratifying results. Due to the success of this surveillance network, it is being replicated in other important power and distribution plants throughout Chile. Powering progress In a country rife with minerals and natural resources, having enough energy is critical to fuel economic growth. However, in order to have enough energy, Chile has had to get innovative. As a result, alternative sources of energy are becoming increasingly popular and wind power is now widespread throughout this Andean nation. Ensuring the safety and security of these wind farms is therefore vital to progress. Through working together, companies like TKH Security Solutions USA and Dessin are able to help protect the people and property at these modern power plants, guaranteeing that the economy is free to grow and expand.

Aimetis CCTV Software Selected For Optimized Security Surveillance At Whitby Mental Health Centre

Customer profile Whitby Mental Health Centre (WMHC) is a specialty psychiatric hospital which is focused on providing specialized mental health programmes for inpatients and outpatients for a population of 2.8 million residents in an area extending from the east of the City of Toronto, Canada. WMHC employs 1100 staff and has an annual operating budget of approximately $88 million.Technology & integration Aimetis Symphony™ Client & Server Axis 241Q encoders IQinVision 703 network cameras Analog Panasonic WV-CW864 PTZ Panasonic WV-NF284 network camera  Results Increased scalability of security personnel Improved image quality Greater value extracted from PTZ cameras through auto-tracking capability SummaryWhitby Mental Health Centre selects Aimetis Symphony™ Integrated Intelligent Video Management Software as its video platform for analog and network cameras while leveraging video analytics to automatically control PTZ cameras, increasing the scalability of security personnel.Business challenge Aimetis Symphony was selected due to its ability to support Axis, Panasonic and IQinVision network cameras concurrently  Whitby Mental Health Centre (WMHC) includes a forensic programme, an 85 bed medium and minimum security programme for persons subject to detention under the Criminal Code of Canada and the Mental Health Act. Skyrocketing occupancy, from 70% in 2006 to 95%, had left the facility with the need to expand its video coverage. WMHC wanted to slowly migrate to an IP based deployment while still making use of their existing analog cameras. The need to have an intelligent video system with auto PTZ tracking capability was required as timely manual control of the PTZ cameras was not always guaranteed.SolutionAimetis Symphony™ Intelligent Video Management Software was selected due to its open architecture and ability to support Axis, Panasonic and IQinVision network cameras concurrently. To achieve control of the analog pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras, an Axis 241Q encoder was used to interface with the analog camera and IP network, allowing Symphony™ to send commands across the network and automatically control the cameras as needed. Symphony™ was configured to automatically zoom in when people were detected in areas which were designated as off-limits, such as around the garbage bins outside the hospital. Megapixel cameras were also deployed which gave superior image quality in strategic parts of the hospital where high image detail was a must. These are especially useful in aiding security personnel in the detection and prevention of violent behavior or persons going missing. "Aimetis allowed is to leverage our analog investment while adding high value features such as auto-PTZ control and megapixel cameras," says John Premzell, Fire and Safety Officer, WMHC.

Axis Network Cameras Hitch A Ride On Madrid's Buses
Axis Network Cameras Hitch A Ride On Madrid's Buses

9,000 surveillance cameras will be installed across Madrid's public bus serviceThe Municipal Transport Company of Madrid (EMT) has chosen Axis Communications, the global leader in the network video market, to deliver network surveillance cameras for Madrid's public bus service. EMT has chosen Axis to help support its aim to become Europe's best public transport company. The €20 million project will involve the installation of more than 9,000 cameras in 2,300 buses. The surveillance system includes high resolution real time recording and monitoring, and also features a panic button which is connected to EMT's Central Alarm Station. In the event of an emergency the Control Centre Operator can notify the relevant emergency service. Each bus also includes GPS so it is easy to locate the bus quickly. The network surveillance cameras have already been installed in 400 buses, and it's expected that all buses will support the technology by the end of this year. The tender was won by a consortium formed by Spanish IT and security companies - GRUPO ETRA, IECISA and PLETTAC who presented a project based on Axis network cameras and video encoders. Each bus will include three AXIS M3113-R network cameras and one AXIS Q7401 video encoderAxis has supplied cameras that are robust, easy to install and compact, yet also deliver high resolution images and include vibration resistance and tampering alarms. Each bus will include three - AXIS M3113-R network cameras and one AXIS Q7401 video encoder. The cameras support SVGA (800x600) resolution, which provides enough detail to make it possible to identify people or objects. The cameras also offer H.264 and motion JPG compression formats. H.264 compression optimizes bandwidth use (critical for 3G mobile communications) and storage requirements by considerably reducing the binary speed. The cameras also support standard Power over Ethernet and can be integrated with other devices and security systems. Juan Luis Brizuela, Axis Communications Iberia Country Manager said: "This project presented us with a challenge which resulted in a new range of cameras that are well suited to the demands of public transport. We look forward to continuing to work with the Municipal Transport Company of Madrid this year and completing Europe's leading transport surveillance solution." Ignacio Uría, Head of the VEA System Implementation Project (Security Department of EMT) said: "For this pioneering project, it has been very important to be able to rely on a camera vendor such as Axis Communications, which has demonstrated a proven ability to support its customers closely. Axis took full account of our previous experience with onboard video surveillance and the specifications of the bus fleet. The network cameras are ideally suited to our project's objectives, and we believe that, in view of the similarities between urban bus transport systems, they could be well-suited to the majority of transport systems in Spain, or the world."
