Surveillance solutions for cities

February 2015 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Deterring crime and vandalism as well as protecting against terrorism are the catch words which are becoming more and more important for town and community leaders. The multifocal sensor system Panomera is ideal for the surveillance of cities and public places. With Panomera, a huge area can be monitored from a single location extremely efficiently. The most impressive aspect of the product is that it combines the overall view with simultaneous top detail resolution: Even more distant objects are displayed with the same resolution as objects in the foreground of the picture.

Furthermore, Dallmeier offers a comprehensive range of high-resolution IP cameras. Depending on the area of application either high-speed PTZ dome cameras, box cameras or vandal-resistant dome cameras are used. The latter provide for safety and security in sensitive areas, too.

Dallmeier’s product range includes the latest solutions for almost every requirement in the field of CCTV surveillance. To ensure maximum security individual solutions are produced using the Virtual Matrix with multiple Intelligent Video Analysis Systems (e.g. object recognition, etc.). Dallmeier’s Virtual Matrix enables the transmission and recording of video and audio signals in broadcast quality via an Ethernet/IP network.

An unlimited number of cameras can monitor public places with their pictures recorded and if necessary sent via IP network. Owing to the video compression used, the camera pictures are transmitted in real time, top quality and full picture rate. The system architecture also allows an easy control of PTZ cameras.

Pictures are recorded in a ring memory which is automatically over-written after a defined period (e.g. 14 days). Event analysis is very quick and efficient because of the use of customer-specific user interfaces, which are complemented with the most appropriate operating devices such as keyboards and joysticks (e.g. PTZ control) or jog-shuttles (e.g. replay control).

Intelligent Video Analysis Systems support the monitoring tasks in various fields. These can classify objects and respond appropriately, triggering events when necessary (e.g. switching cameras, raising the alarm).

The pictures are analysed in specially equipped security and control rooms. How alarms are dealt with is carefully regulated between the control centre and the police to ensure that they are handled punctually and in a coordinated way. This requires flexible system design, so that the system can be expanded at any time and so that it is possible to add further alarm systems or integrate it into a higher-level management system.
