Safe City partners in Israel select SerVision DVRs for live video monitoring of public spaces.
SerVision’s remote video surveillance solutions are being used across Israel as part of the Safe City Program designed to enhance public safety throughout local communities. The campaign makes use of advanced technologies to help reduce theft, violence and other crimes.
Israel’s Safe City partners include the municipalities of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Eilat, Ra’anana, and Shoham, all of which are using SerVision’s video gateway solutions to help city authorities remotely monitor traffic intersections, public parks, town centres, and municipal security vehicles all from one centralised location. Authorised users can also view live and recorded video from any monitored site (fixed or moving) on their mobile device or laptop. Ra’anana, Israel’s first and largest Safe City partner, has over 250 cameras and 150 DVRs already installed throughout the city.
SerVision’s video servers have been developed and optimised to stream live video over cellular and low bandwidth networks and are able to stream four frames per second on only one kilobyte per second of bandwidth. The range of SerVision gateways used for Safe City applications (CVG, UVG 400, SVG 400, MVG 400) supports between one and 16 video cameras per DVR, and has advanced event detection and handling capabilities. Most gateway models also support bi-directional audio for two-way communication between control centre authorities and individuals at the monitored site.
Single channel CVGs, four channel UVGs, and 16 channel SVGs are installed at busy traffic intersections and town centres throughout Israel. All units are able to transmit video using a cellular modem, so no physical connection to the Internet is required. The MVG400, SerVision’s mobile DVR, has been installed on public security vehicles. In addition to offering four channels of live video from a moving platform, the unit has a ruggedised chassis to withstand heavy vibration, a removable HDD, and built-in GPS for fleet tracking.
Studies have shown that the technologies used by Safe City partners in Israel have helped to reduce crime and violence in local communities considerably. There is no question that SerVision’s remote monitoring video solutions have contributed greatly to the campaign’s success.
SerVision’s MVG 400 is a compact 4-camera ruggedised DVR and live video transmission system with built-in GPS, bi-directional audio, a removable hard drive and wireless streaming capabilities over cellular and WiFi networks. SerVision is soon to release the CVG-M, a mobile version of the CVG. This light-weight, compact two channel unit is ideal for body worn applications but can also be installed in small remote sites or on-board taxis, buses, trains or trucks. It has a built-in GPS module, bi-directional audio, an internal 4 GB flash for recording and comes with an internal GSM module (which supports GPRS, EDGE, EMTS and HSPA networks). All that is needed to transmit video over cellular networks is a SIM card and data plan from a local carrier.
