MetrôRio Use IndigoVision IP Video To Protect The 700,000 People Who Travel On Its Network
MetrôRio Use IndigoVision IP Video To Protect The 700,000 People Who Travel On Its Network

MetrôRio, Rio de Janeiro’s metro system, has chosen IndigoVision to supply a complete IP video security solution to protect the 700,000 people who travel daily on its network and to allow for future expansion of the metro service. IndigoVision won the contract to replace MetrôRio’s ageing analog surveillance system because of the superior image quality of the IndigoVision cameras, which makes for precise identification of individuals in recorded images, coupled with the flexibility of the IP system, which can be easily scaled up as the metro network grows.    Mr Newton Werneck, CIO of MetrôRio stated: "IndigoVision's image quality is excellent and the distributed architecture of the system will allow the surveillance network to grow along with the metro system." Another crucial factor in winning the business with MetrôRio is the system’s highly efficient and economical storage capability. Compared with other IP video systems, storage requirements are significantly reduced thanks to IndigoVision’s advanced compression technology and the use of the unique Activity Controlled Frame rate (ACF) feature, which is built into the IP cameras. ACF regulates the frame rate of the video stream according to the motion in a particular scene. When there is no activity, video is streamed at minimal frame rate; the instant any motion is detected, video is simultaneously transmitted at the maximum configured frame rate.  This responsiveness provides both greater detail for analysis and also allows for economy of data storage.  The IndigoVision system also provides MetrôRio with improved event archives and content distribution across its network: IndigoVision’s unique distributed architecture eliminates the need for a central server, which means that the surveillance system can expand quickly and as required. IndigoVision’s Brazilian partner Setha Prosegur worked with MetrôRio to create the surveillance system, which includes 141 fixed IP cameras, 21 PTZ cameras and approximately 700 existing analog cameras that have been integrated into the system using IndigoVision encoders. An IndigoVision NVR-AS 3000 (network video recorder) is in place at each station, with back-up provided between stations. Founded in 1979 with five stations operating on one line, MetrôRio now covers 47km (29 miles) divided into two lines and 35 stations. The network continues to grow with a further line under construction and due for completion in 2016.  

IndigoVision's Integrated IP Security System Secures Premises Of Vancouver Island Mall
IndigoVision's Integrated IP Security System Secures Premises Of Vancouver Island Mall

Vancouver Island's leading fashion focused shopping destination has invested in an IndigoVision integrated IP video security system, in what is believed to be the first mall in Canada to deploy a surveillance solution with 100% IP cameras. The 93-camera system, which covers the public areas inside the mall as well as the car parks and surrounding areas, was designed and installed by IndigoVision's approved partner Laser Star Systems Ltd in partnership with Hoffman & Company Security Management Consultants Inc. "One of the benefits of the new surveillance system is that it has helped us create an excellent partnership with local law enforcement," explains Barry Greening, the center's Operations Manager. "Due to the exceptional quality and easy accessibility of the video, the local police force has shown an increasing interest in recorded footage from the system. They often analyze the system to see if ‘known individuals' have been in an around the mall and have used exported evidential video in a number of investigations."When planning for the new surveillance system the shopping center realized that an IP networking solution was the future of video security and ensured budget was made available for IT projects that would support the required network infrastructure. This forward thinking in combination with IndigoVision's low-bandwidth technology allows the IP video system to share network resources with access control, HVAC, Voice-over-IP and general IT traffic. One workstation with four monitors running ‘Control Center', IndigoVision's security management software, is used in the central control room to monitor and analyze live and recorded video. Commenting on its use Greening said: "It is remarkably good and inherently intuitive. The site plan is amazingly simple and easy to use and you can just drag and drop cameras into view. The ability to synchronize cameras and quickly access historical video is invaluable to us and the local police. IndigoVision also took on board our ideas for new features and included them in a future release of the software free-of-charge!"All cameras are continuously recorded for a minimum of 30 days using IndigoVision's Windows Network Video Recorder (NVR) software running on a custom built iSCSI server with 26TB of Raid 6 storage. IndigoVision's class-leading compression technology in combination with a unique feature called Activity Controlled Frame rate (ACF) helps reduce the overall storage requirement. ACF, which is built into IndigoVision's IP cameras, has been deployed on a number of cameras located in hallways and storage areas. When the scene is inactive the camera streams video at a lower frame rate and instantaneously ramps to maximum configured frame rate when motion is detected. This feature is also enabled on many cameras based on time of day, e.g. when the center is closed. IndigoVision's technology allows the IP video system to share network resources with access control, HVAC, Voice-over-IP and general IT traffic A combination of 26 PTZ and 67 fixed IndigoVision IP cameras were installed inside and outside the mall. The fixed cameras are Power-over-Internet (PoE) compliant allowing them to be powered from the network. This helped reduce the overall installation costs as only a single CAT-6 cable was required to connect the camera to the network. Mayfair is now considering using the surveillance system for more than just security. Retailers are increasingly harnessing the power of high-quality video for marketing purposes. This can be an invaluable tool for analyzing merchandising and promotions and monitoring the total number and movement of customers visiting the center and individual stores.

IndigoVision's Offshore IP Video Surveillance Deters Poachers
IndigoVision's Offshore IP Video Surveillance Deters Poachers

IndigoVision's IP Video technology is at the heart of an innovative wireless CCTV system that's providing both security and operational benefits for an offshore fish farm.Acuicola Marina is one of the leading producers of farmed fish in the Spanish Province of Castellon on the Mediterranean coast.  Their offices and warehouse are located at Burriana, 3 km inland, with the fish farm facilities sited 10 km offshore.The valuable fish stock is a target for poachers and Acuicola Marina has always found it difficult to police the offshore facilities.  Offshore patrols were partly successful but proved too costly and so it was decided that a CCTV monitoring system was required.  This would provide the necessary security as well as a number of other monitoring functions that could benefit the business, for example submersible cameras monitoring fish growth.IndigoVision's complete end-to-end IP Video system was chosen to provide the real time video and alarm management facilities required of the system.  The overall solution was designed and installed by IndigoVision's local approved integrator, Ralco Networks.The system is managed by IndigoVision's ‘Control Center' software and recording is achieved using IndigoVision's Networked Video Recorders (NVRs), which are installed on the network at the on-shore offices.  Several operators use ‘Control Center' workstations to view both live and recorded video from any of the offshore cameras.  ‘Control Center' provides advanced search and video analysis tools that the operators use to identify security breaches and to monitor fish growth which helps determine the correct distribution of food.‘Control Center' also handles alarm and event data such as equipment malfunctions and power system monitoring, all of which is transmitted over the network. Commenting on the project, José Soriano Reyes, Ralco Network's Project Manager, said,  "IndigoVision's system was chosen because of the flexibility of their ‘Control Center' software, the NVR recording structure that allows the recorders to be sited on-shore and the excellent MPEG-4 compression that ensures high-quality video can be transmitted across the limited bandwidth available on the wireless network."A wireless network infrastructure was developed, consisting of a local Wi-Fi network covering the offshore facilities with a 7 Mbps WiMAX radio link back to the on-shore offices, 13km away.  Day/night weatherproof dome cameras were mounted on the fish pools as well as onboard the production boat and a submersible camera was installed to monitor the fish stock underwater.  Each of the cameras is connected to an IndigoVision 8000 transmitter module, which encodes the analog feed to high-quality MPEG-4 digital video for transmission over the wireless network.All of the offshore equipment is powered by specially designed standalone solar powered/battery power packs.  A VPN router was also installed to allow access to the video feeds over the internet.As well as improved security the new CCTV system has provided Acuicola Marina with a number of other benefits.  Their production has increased, partly because of the deterrence to poachers and partly from the operational improvements that offshore monitoring has provided.  The wireless network not only allows transmission of video and data but also two-way audio, which is being used to provide voice communications between the offices and the offshore facilities.  In the near future Acuicola Marina plans to expand the fish farm with the addition of extra fish pools and additional facilities.  As IP Video is a very scalable solution, adding additional monitoring will be easy and very cost effective.
