Critical Infrastructure Security
Critical Infrastructure Security Video Surveillance
- Greater surveillance coverage from fewer CCTV Camera Installations.
- More close-up evidence captured automatically.
- Delivering the best security for the highest deterrent.
Today’s Critical Infrastructure Security Video Surveillance Challenges
With today’s security climate of global terrorism there is a need to combat threats on critical infrastructures. For this it is crucial to collect high quality close‐up video evidence of when, where and how the security of a remote site was breached causing considerable loss and damage. The events in Algeria 2012 is an example of where better critical infrastructure security could have helped.
In reality terrorists, criminals or even vandals commit the security breach within just a few carefully planned seconds, but Before the availability of Viseum security solutions trying to collect such evidence often proves futile, because it did not occur close-up to the CCTV camera, or the incident was missed completely because the CCTV camera was pointing the wrong way.
This narrated presentation shows of how it is impossible for anyone to identify a weak point of a perimeter that Viseum Thermal and/or Optical Surveillance Cameras are protecting.
This presentation shows how Viseum has solved the many problems with using radar and thermal automated threat detection systems, by using automated visual verification.
Today’s future-proof CCTV Surveillance Camera, the solution to critical infrastructure security.
The Intelligent Moving Camera (Viseum IMC)
Viseum UK supplies the only intelligent video surveillance camera in the world to automatically detect multiple attacks from 130 metres away and in all directions at the same time, automatically controls a PTZ camera to capture ID video evidence of the intruders(s) even before the alarm is raised, and then automatically report the potential breech for rapid response.
At the heart of all our intelligent video solutions is the patented Intelligent Moving Camera (Viseum IMC). This uses multiple fixed and one moving PTZ surveillance camera in a single unit, with advanced software called Virtual Operator Monitoring Software, to detect, zoom into and follow all suspects no matter where they each break into, circulate, or leave the remote site. It is modular hardware configured to cover from a targeted area, up to a vast simultaneous full 360° panoramic coverage, up to the size of 14 football pitches from just one camera installation.
Best value CCTV surveillance camera for critical infrastructure security
It has been independently endorsed that it would take at least 5 – 6 times more installations of any other advanced manned or unmanned camera solution, or at least 10 of the industry’s latest panoramic megapixel cameras, or a minimum of 200 times more standard fixed camera installations, to provide the level of security that each Viseum IMC provides without being dependent on any CCTV surveillance operators or infrastructures.
Long term deterrent for Critical Infrastructure Security
The criminal is always deterred where cameras perform “manned” and once they see Viseum’s overt camera model follow them they believe a proactive human operator has already spotted them. This is well proven to deter the threat of breaching the security, better than any other crime reduction initiative short of having resident security staff constantly on alert.
Today’s Critical Infrastructure Remote Monitoring Services
The best situation awareness for critical infrastructures
Operating completely independently of the central control, the Viseum outdoor CCTV surveillance camera provides full visibility and control of the entire area under protection, and it does not need to rely on any CCTV surveillance infrastructure in order to proactively detect and capture intruders.
This intelligent CCTV automation, operating with advanced remote monitoring technologies results in the best of both worlds, where intelligent automation interplays with human vigilance. This new partnership optimises the key human element of security by not depending on it to detect and capture intruders, and index evidence of the breach. This means that operators can have more time to react in making the key decisions for responding.
Greater quantity and quality of local camera recordings
Not only is the Viseum PTZ camera trained to point itself to zoom into and follow events of interest, but Viseum’s contextual view camera recordings are also valuable during live incidents or post investigations. Images from these cameras matched with the PTZ’s close-up recordings show what else is happening in the whole area and who else is witnessing the incident.
As well as the PTZ cameras images typically being recorded centrally, its images and all Viseum’s wide contextual view cameras are stored locally and of greater quality than can be transmitted over a typical wireless network. This makes them invaluable for primary evidential use or for distributed backup storage, and provides resilience against loss of evidence by removing any single point of failure.
Viseum IMC digital integration to command control systems
Digital Integration of the Viseum outdoor CCTV surveillance camera eliminates the need for any operator training on the basic use of Viseum cameras and local DVR. Delivering a higher level of service with fewer operators, images from the moving PTZ camera and all or any one of Viseum’s wide contextual camera views, can be displayed on the central control room video wall and/or spot monitors only when relevant activity occurs at the camera installation.
