Video surveillance plays a crucial role in security at ports. The surveillance systems used should be virtually maintenance free, provide high-resolution image quality and be able to withstand the weather conditions of an ocean environment. Moreover, each individual camera should be capable of monitoring larger areas with greater detail.
There are three main areas of concern at ports: theft and injury prevention as well as protection from acts of terrorism.
Mobotix network cameras are able to provide the needed high-performance requirements: high resolution, integrated intelligence, cost-efficient recording, analytical software and extremely robust design.
Installation: The multiple configuration possibilities with Mobotix network cameras, including single or dual lens, wide-angle or telephoto, day or low-light, provide the flexibility to deploy the same basic camera type into a wide range of specific viewing requirements with varying lighting conditions.
Weather conditions: Particular concerns relating to the weather conditions of a coastal environment include: salty air, frequent wind driven rain, intense heat and humidity. Mobotix cameras are built to withstand extreme environmental conditions, from -30°C to +60°C. There is no concern about deterioration due to salt air, camera lenses fogging up or the system getting rain or heat damage.
Audio features: Mobotix cameras have both audio and video features. Mobotix cameras can also trigger audio alarms that warn individuals to stay away from dangerous areas. The audio feature also allows you to communicate directly with an employee if they are in danger.
The cameras include internal memory and can temporarily store the video sequences in the case of server failure. When the server is again available, it is automatically updated.
Using Mobotix technology means the reduction in the number of cameras required combined with reduced storage requirements and the fact that the systems need no additional software and are license free also add up to a substantial overall cost saving.
