Military surveillance in Brazil

May 2011 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Hikvision technology secures a military complex.

Located inside the Duque de Caxias Palace, the Military Command of the East is one of the seven military commands of the Brazilian Army and responsible for securing the states of Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo. Given the extraordinary needs for security and secrecy in the defence department, an advanced surveillance system with rigorous standards was required.

The Eastern Military Command required video surveillance products with high-definition video in real-time and featuring 36X optical zoom with 360° inspection, in order to provide a secure environment and safeguard the people and assets 24/7.

The military command selected 2-megapixel CMOS-based network cameras, high-speed domes and H.264 compression cards from Hikvision.

The Hikvision 2-megapixel CMOS-based network camera delivers clear video with resolution of up to 1600×1200 in real-time, using the MPEG4/H.264 video codec based on TI’s high performance DaVinci platform. With features such as digital zoom and ePTZ (electronic pan/tilt/zoom), security staff are able to zoom for specific details by clicking the mouse. If an emergency or illegal activity occurs, the perpetrators can be identified quickly and easily. Local storage on SD/SDHC cards is supported for continuous recording even under network failure, effectively preventing video data loss.

A pan range of 360° enables the Hikvision high-speed dome to keep an eye on every corner of the military command day and night. The speed dome features 36x optical zoom for long-distance monitoring with high video quality. Additionally, the speed domes were installed on the boundary walls of the command to monitor the surrounding areas as well, alerting the security staff to unexpected events or incursions. In addition, the product supports weather-proof (IP66 standard) and can work stably under high-temperature condition (-30°C to 60°C), which fits well in the tough environment of the area where this command located.

Apart from the megapixel network cameras and high-speed domes, Hikvision’s H.264 compression cards with real-time recording and dual steam were also used to secure the military command.

“Compared to other video surveillance products, Hikvision’s products are more reliable and stable,” said Leonardo Ferreira, sales manager of Interimagen, the integrator of this project. “The real-time monitoring provided by Hikvision products helps us get access to the on-site security status timely and clearly, which increases the security of the military command.”
