Baxall goes underground in Moscow

December 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Baxall has had its equipment installed on the Moscow Metro transport system.

The Metro system in Moscow is a highly grandiose example of architecture and design, filled with works of art and underground 'palaces'. The first line was built in the early 1930s, but there are now 11 lines covering 200 km of track and serving 9 million people each day.

Baxall has had its CDSP cameras, ZMX+ multiplexers and DTL-96Ne digital recorders installed in 25 Moscow Metro stations

Twenty-five Metro stations have most recently benefited from Baxall equipment, which includes CDSP colour cameras, ZMX+ 32 channel multiplexers and the new DTL-96Ne digital recorders. For example, at Proletarskaya station, 28 Baxall digital signal processing CDSP9313 cameras have been installed in total - four at the entrance and exit, four in the cash hall, four covering the escalators and 12 in the underground hall. All the cameras are connected to a ZMX+CT32/M4 multiplexer, which enables the operator to see various multiple or single images from live or recorded cameras.

The ZMX+ multiplexer also enables images from all of the connected cameras to be recorded on a single DTL-96Ne digital recorder. This recorder provides high resolution images and direct connection to an existing Ethernet LAN or WAN. The latter feature is particularly important in this installation as the Moscow Metro CCTV system is being run across a digital network. Operators therefore have the opportunity to distribute images to other stations, which is ideal when tracking a suspect who may try to evade detection by getting on a train to another station.
