Geutebruck Video Security System Enables 24/7 Suicide Prevention At An Australian Beauty Spot
Geutebruck Video Security System Enables 24/7 Suicide Prevention At An Australian Beauty Spot

Gap Park in Sydney, Australia extends for a couple of kilometres along sheer rugged cliffs facing the Pacific Ocean.  It is an area with stunning scenery, but sadly also a history of suicides, accidents and unexplained deaths. To reduce these tragedies and improve the park’s image, Woollahra Municipal Council implemented a master plan involving both deterrence and response measures which now includes a Geutebruck GeViScope-based video security system designed by Security Consultants International and installed by Kings Security Systems. Initial consultations with local people, mental health and crisis support agencies revealed that troubled individuals often spend several hours on the cliff tops before finally deciding to commit suicide, and that active intervention during this period might save life. Hence the council’s plan for reducing self-harm incidents, improving the area’s reputation and encouraging more visitors, included a video surveillance system to aid rapid police intervention by enabling critical incidents to be identified day or night.  Initially the project included restyling the park entries, erecting new inward curving fences along the cliff edge to deter climbing, as well as new seating and low level LED lighting to improve the ambience especially at night. New signs were installed as were two purpose-built, vandal-resistant telephone help points with autodialing for the charity Lifeline and the emergency services, together with automatic audio visual feeds and location ID. Four Bosch MIC 412 thermal PTZ cameras provided vision at night and in bad weather, at considerable distance and amongst vegetation.  With subsequent federal funding in 2011 came a GeViScopeHS/R with an expansion unit; new fixed view cameras to monitor the telephone help points; and five Moog ‘thermal & optical’ cameras for providing thermal and optical views at the same time.  Most cameras are concentrated near the entrances and along the cliff-top walk so that monitoring center operators can help police with missing persons searches by identifying individuals as they enter or leave the park, and locating them if they remain in the park. The remote operator only views the live video and assesses the situation when requested to do so by the police – i.e. when a member of the public has reported a possible incident, when there has been an emergency call from a help point, or following an alert from Lifeline. The operator can also review recorded footage for post-incident investigation but only with specific permission from the Council.  Justine Henderson, communications manager and spokesperson for Woollahra Council reports, “We know the footage has been useful to police in responding to potential on site emergencies as we’ve seen an increase in use of the monitoring provided by the camera system. At the start of the project the footage was being used for retrospective investigations and now it is being used more for direct interventions – which is a good result.” Geutebruck video analytics (VMD) on thermal camera streams can accurately identify dangerious incidents and provide a reliable basis for alerting the emergency services  Analytics with thermal camerasIn autumn 2011 an extended trial using a selection of existing cameras was successful in establishing that Geutebruck video analytics (VMD) on thermal camera streams could accurately identify dangerous incidents and provide a reliable basis for alerting the emergency services.  The GeViScope’s VMD software was set up with two lines of alarm zones, one along the fence and one parallel on the seaward side. Time thresholds were used to pick up someone climbing over the fence, and an alarm was set to trigger immediately if a target moved from the first line of zones into the second line at the cliff edge.The tests correctly identified incidents where individuals, or groups, breached the safety fence and ventured out to the cliff edge. Some people were clearly just making sight-seeing or thrill-seeking explorations but others seemed to have more troubled motivations. False alarms were minimal and proved very easy for operators to recognizeand disregard. The tests correctly identified incidentswhere individuals, or groups,breachd the safety fence and ventured out to the cliff edge  In the light of this success Woollahra Council is seeking funding to add a small number of fixed view cameras to the video system to establish a permanent analytic detection ‘fence line’. This VMD option is substantially cheaper than ground-based radar and offers the advantage of combining video display, detection and verification all in one.  With some dedicated fixed view cameras taking care of these core functions, the existing PTZ cameras would then be available to provide the operator with a wider view, more accurate details etc., without risk of disturbing the VMD function. “Geutebrück Pacific’s entire team are particularity proud of this project,” says managing director, Anthony Brooks. “It’s very exciting to be applying this advanced technology outside the traditional security environment where it has the potential to deliver very positive outcomes for many individuals and their families. We can’t think of a more worthwhile and satisfying project.”

IAEA Chose Geutebruck Equipment For International Nuclear Protection Training
IAEA Chose Geutebruck Equipment For International Nuclear Protection Training

In 2009 the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) upgraded facilities at the International Special Training Center in Obninsk in the Russian Federation. This center is where operators and inspectors of physical protection systems at nuclear facilities all over the former Soviet Union and other IAEA member states receive practical training and where newly developed equipment is tested and approved for use in the Russian nuclear industry.To enable training on combating attack, sabotage and theft of nuclear materials to be as realistic as possible, the center now has a range of security systems typical of current nuclear installations.  Key recent acquisitions included Geutebruck's re_porter and GeViScope video security platforms.  These have been integrated with a large number of other third party systems, including person and vehicle access control systems and a variety of different intruder and perimeter detection facilities, to simulate the complex systems used in nuclear plants.  "Besides always being networkable and open for integration," explains Lev Datsenko, Geutebruck's regional manager for Eastern Europe. "Geutebruck systems are particularly suitable for this kind of application because of their excellent video and alarm management characteristics which ensure that operators have complete control of     Guests at the official opening had the opportunity to view the new Obninsk training facilities extensive and complex installations.  And an additional attraction is that their video encoding is so fast that there are no latency problems so users get normal real-time handling of speed dome cameras and pan and tilt systems too."Geutebruck's own high speed, high precision Argus pan and tilt system was also on the IAEA's shopping list for the Obninsk outdoor training area.  There it is equipped with a color camera and an IR spotlight, but other customers use it with a CCD camera and a thermal imaging camera for spotting intruders in fog and smoke as well as all round the clock.At the official opening guests had the opportunity to view the new indoor and outdoor training and testing grounds and the array of new state-of-the-art security equipment from manufacturers in Canada, Israel, Italy, Japan, France, Germany, Russia, UK and the USA.

Geutebruck Video Systems In Over 40 German Road Tunnels
Geutebruck Video Systems In Over 40 German Road Tunnels

Germany has a total of 330 road tunnels, and as a consequence of a long-term partnership between Geutebruck GmbH and Goldfunk GmbH more than 40 of them have been made safer by using Geutebruck video systems.  Every year the ADAC, Germany's (and Europe's) largest automobile club carries out pan-European tunnel surveys and awards marks for safety.  Tunnels equipped by Goldfunk with Geutebruck systems have had podium positions three times in recent years.  In 2004 the Berg Block tunnel came in second place, in 2006 the Hochwald tunnel was third, and in 2008 the A38 Heidkopftunnel was named the safest road tunnel in Germany. Geutebruck's GeViScope is Goldfunk's current video system platform of choice for tunnel projects.  It combines high performance video and audio recording, with an open network matrix structure, professional video analysis and comprehensive alarm management all in a single device.  All functions operate in real time and completely independently of each other.  The system's event control functions ensure that relevant data and pictures from the cameras covering the tubes and approaches, the emergency call points, the break-down refuges as well as the interconnecting passages are displayed automatically and instantly whenever managers need them.  The system is particularly flexible and the control software allows managers to pre-program routines and responses to suit their precise requirements which makes their task easier and the tunnel safer. Clearly the video system cannot claim more than a share in the credit:  improvements in construction regulations have made a significant contribution, as has a greater emphasis on safety and security generally.  But along with the emergency call points, refuges, fire alarms and separate tubes for each traffic direction, an efficient video security system is an important traffic management tool and an essential element of an overall security concept which has a significant role to play in saving life when there is an accident or a fire.
