Seamless transport safety and ­security

CCTV Handbook 2015 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Transport (Industry)

Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) is one of five airports in Taiwan with regular international flights, and is by far the busiest. Last year, TPE dealt with approximately 34 million passengers, ranking TPE the 11th busiest airport worldwide in terms of international passengers.

TPE comprises two terminals, each handling roughly half of the passengers. A comprehensive transport system is established within the airport to transport passengers between terminals and in/out of the airport. This system comprises trains, buses, taxis and the people mover system (PMS), better known as the Skytrain.

TPE commissioned Apogear, a distributor of Vivotek products in Taiwan, and system integrator Plustek to design and deploy a solution to meet the safety and security demands of TPE.

Taking into account the immense flow of people in an international airport context, as well as the fact that surveillance in mobile environments required specialised products, Apogear and Plustek formulated a comprehensive mobile solution, comprising 10 Vivotek cameras. A series of hardware and software comparisons were conducted to identify the ideal device for this setting, where the Vivotek MD8562 mobile dome network camera surpassed all established benchmarks and all competition in its category. Thus, the MD8562 was selected for the in-carriage surveillance of the Skytrain.

The MD8562 is a dome network camera geared specifically for mobile applications, such as trains, buses and other vehicles. This camera model is fully compliant with EN50155 standards and meets all shock and vibration criteria set by EN50155. The camera is housed within a vandal- (IK10-rated) and weatherproof (IP67-rated) dome housing to withstand the harshest environmental conditions.

The camera itself features a 2 megapixel CMOS sensor capable of capturing 1080p Full HD video at 30 fps and supports real-time H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG compression technologies to provide detailed footage whilst reducing file size and conserving network bandwidth. The wide-angle fixed lens and WDR Pro technology exponentially increases the camera’s field of view and ability to capture minute details in extremely bright, extremely dark, or light-fluctuating environments. Therefore, the MD8562 Mobile Dome Network Camera is ideal for monitoring the mobile carriage spaces of the Skytrain system.
