Save with fewer cameras

January 2013 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Mobotix announced an installation agreement with Berkeley County, West Virginia, USA, in which the company will be integrating a surveillance infrastructure across multiple municipal buildings and complexes. Adding more than 25 Hemispheric Q24 cameras (featuring 360-degree all-round views and panorama functionality) and MonoDome D24 cameras (featuring integrated multiple-window motion detection and flexible mounting for indoor and outdoor) to its existing analogue network, Berkeley County security and technology administrators have enabled best-in-class, high-resolution security through a cost-effective, plug-and-play network upgrade.

“The entire installation process has been effortless from design to implementation to activation,” says Gary Wine, director of information technology, Berkeley County. “With the hemispheric camera technology, the number of devices needed on-site has dropped significantly from previous levels – a testament to the precision and accuracy of image detail, the wide-angle images produced, and the expansive high-resolution storage capabilities. This hardware reduction and the associated software and storage savings give Berkeley County the best quality at the best price, a critical need for public and government organisations in this economic climate.”

“What Mobotix does differently is this concept of a decentralised approach meaning that everything is done on the camera itself,” says Steve Gorski, general manger for the Americas for Mobotix. “That includes storage and VMS software and image compression – it is all done on the camera that way they do not need to invest in higher-end servers.”

Mobotix delivers efficient hemispheric video surveillance through its patented decentralised concept – an in-camera technology construct that alleviates bandwidth constraints and allows full-spectrum high-resolution video across an IP network. The decentralised Mobotix concept employs a high-speed processing unit and internal flash memory card (SD/MicroSD card) built into every camera, driving significant cost savings to the end-user through:

* Fewer cameras (panoramic images with more accurate detail produced via megapixel technology).

* Less PCs/DVRs (all recording/memory storage takes place within the camera).

* Lower network bandwidth (all data processed in the camera itself).

Mobotix cameras will be installed at the Berkeley County historical courthouse, Emergency Communications Centre, County Office Complex and Judicial Centre. All cameras come equipped with the latest versions of the versatile MxControlCenter software.
