27 June 2007 - Macau Police Invest in IndigoVision IP-CCTV

Polícia de Macau Investe em IndigoVision IP-CCTV

Macau Police have invested in IndigoVision’s IP Video

IndigoVision’s complete IP-Video system is providing a comprehensive CCTV surveillance solution for the Police Service in Macau, one of the two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China, along with Hong Kong. The new system has revolutionized how Macau Police monitor their operation and has provided them with faster video analysis and improved incident response. IndigoVision was chosen following a successful test evaluation of competing systems by technical officers in Macau Police.

The 200+ camera system, installed by IndigoVision’s local partner TungPo HK, provides surveillance and recording of video and audio for the HQ and a separate police station located 3Km away across the city, which is connected via a dedicated fiber LAN. The system is soon to be expanded to encompass a third police station whose function will be dedicated to policing the largest casino site in the territory. Fixed and PTZ dome cameras provide surveillance of the outside of the buildings as well as the detention cells, booking-in desks, interview rooms and operation center. The video and audio can be exported for evidential purposes using sophisticated encryption and watermarking techniques to ensure the material is tamper-proof.

Macau Police chose to replace their ageing analog hardware matrix and VCR based CCTV system with a solution that provided high-quality video with the flexibility and scalability of a virtual matrix. This also allowed them to easily integrate surveillance of remote police stations that were not covered by the existing system.

“IndigoVision’s video and audio quality is very impressive, which is an important factor when preparing evidence,” said Kenny Leung, Director, TungPo HK. “The flexibility of the system and the advanced features provided by the ‘Control Center’ software has transformed the way Macau Police monitor and record their operation.”

‘Control Center’, IndigoVision’s enterprise video and alarm management software, allows police officers and staff to view live and recorded video from any of the cameras at either building. The flexibility of IndigoVision’s IP Video technology means that any component in the system can be located at any point on the network – this provides a scalable and redundant solution. Macau Police have exploited this flexibility by locating ‘Control Center’ workstations both in dedicated CCTV control rooms in each building and on individual desks as required. IndigoVision’s unique approach to supplying ‘Control Center’ software as license-free encourages users to benefit from the flexibility of IP Video as additional workstations can be installed anywhere on the network for the cost of a simple PC - Macau Police are currently using around 20 workstations throughout both buildings.

High-quality 25fps/4CIF video and audio is recorded using IndigoVision’s Network Video Recorders (NVRs) which are distributed around the network to minimize bandwidth and provide fault tolerant recording. Eleven NVRs with a combined storage of 10TB provide Macau police with about two weeks of continuous full framerate recording from all cameras.

Each camera is connected to an IndigoVision 8000 transmitter/receiver module. The 8000 converts the camera signal to highquality digital video for transmission over the IP network. IndigoVision’s advanced compression technology ensures minimum bandwidth usage and helps maximize the available NVR storage. Additional 8000 modules are also used to convert the digital video back to analog for feeds to video displays in the control rooms. Over 50 of the original CCTV cameras were re-used as well as some of the control room equipment.

13 June 2007 - Berlin S-Bahn Adopts IndigoVision IP Video for New Passenger Safety System

image 

Berlin S-Bahn adopts IndigoVision IP Video

IP Video systems manufacturer IndigoVision is providing the technology behind a new train dispatch system that improves passenger safety and speeds up operations for the Berlin S-Bahn. The S-Bahn is a metro system that transports around 1.3 million passengers a day across a network consisting of 16 lines and 165 stations. This innovative IP Video system allows the train driver to safely manage train dispatch via a CCTV display in the cab – the first installation of its type anywhere in the world for an urban rail system.

IndigoVision’s IP Video technology was chosen following a rigorous competitive analysis. This was followed by the installation of a pilot system using 24 cameras across 6 stations, which was successfully completed over a further 6 month period. The next stage will be to install a further 88 cameras on an additional 22 stations. In time the Berlin S-Bahn hopes to deploy the system across its entire network of 165 stations and stopping points. The system is part of an IP-communication and passenger information system installed by Alcatel-Lucent. IndigoVision was chosen for this prestigious project because it could meet a stringent set of criteria. Even though the pilot was small the system had to be fully scalable to meet the future expansion plans, which could mean over 2,000 cameras monitoring 330 platforms across the entire rail network. Flexible video recording was also critical as was the ability to integrate alarm handling with video management, all of which is handled by IndigoVision’s Network Video Recorders and ‘Control Center’ software.

In a typical station four fixed CCTV cameras are placed on each side of the track to monitor the platform and train doors. These four cameras are then connected to a quad-split unit to produce a single 4-way video image which is connected to an IndigoVision 8000 transmitter unit. The 8000 converts the analog signal into a high-quality digital video stream, 4SIF at 25fps, for transmission over the IP network. The video is also transmitted using a wireless LAN to a display in the train cab where the driver can monitor passenger movements and ensure doors are closed before departure.

‘Control Center’, IndigoVision’s enterprise video and alarm management software is used by operators in control rooms, located in the larger stations, to monitor the platform images. The video streams are transmitted using multicast technology that allows any ‘Control Center’ workstation to view live and recorded video from any of the platform cameras at any station or stopping point on the rail network. IndigoVision’s ‘Control Center’ software architecture allows the user to install as many operator workstations as required for no more than the cost of a PC. This will have a major impact on reducing costs as the system expands - another reason IndigoVision was chosen for the project.

The built-in motion analytics in the IndigoVision 8000 transmitters is used to trigger an alarm when a train arrives at the station by detecting motion in three quarters of the quad-split image. The alarm is used to update an interactive rail network status map displayed on ‘Control Center’ workstations and provide real time control of video recording.

Video recording is achieved using IndigoVision’s PC-based Windows Network Video Recorders (WinNVRs). Three WinNVRs were installed with the original pilot and a further 4 are planned for the next phase of the project. The NVRs, which can be installed at any point on the IP network, continuously record video from all the platform cameras. Most recordings are deleted quickly but recordings of train movements are archived for later analysis. This recording scheme is managed by ‘Control Center’ using the train arriving event triggered by the 8000’s motion analytics. The recording demands therefore change throughout the day and throughout the network. The distributed nature of WinNVRs operating on IP networks means that recorded video from both the larger central stations and the smaller stopping points can easily be accommodated and be fully scaleable as the system size increases in the future.

31 May 2007 - IndigoVision Integrates Access Control

Major Investment Pays Off for IndigoVision

Access Control System at Doha Airport

IP Video security systems manufacturer IndigoVision has completed an integrated system at Doha International Airport (DIA) in Qatar consisting of over 600 cameras and 200 Access Control points.

In addition to the ‘GE Secure Perfect’ Access Control solution used at DIA, IndigoVision’s IP-Video system provides interfaces to ‘Cardax’ and ‘Lenel OnGuard’ systems, with ‘Software House’ in development. IndigoVision also freely supplies an Integration Kit to allow third party development of Access Control interfaces. This dual approach is an open-platform solution, ensuring an integrated system can be supplied to cover the majority of Access Control applications around the world.

‘Control Center’, IndigoVision’s management software, is the ideal place to consolidate alarms from an integrated IP-Security system as CCTV is the application most monitored by security staff. Not only can ‘Control Center’ interface to Access Control alarms but to intruder security, plant and building management alarms also. IndigoVision manufactures an IP-Alarm panel unit that allows hardwired I/O to be interfaced onto the IP network - completing one of the most comprehensive IP-Security solutions currently available.

Installed by IndigoVision’s local partner Capital Technology WLL, the open-architecture solution at DIA is fully integrated across the airport’s LAN using ‘Control Center’ management software. ‘Control Center’ allows operators to monitor live video feeds and recorded footage from the Network Video Recorders (NVR) as well as status information and alarms from the Access Control system. The tight integration of the Access Control and video management in ‘Control Center’ allows the virtual matrix to be driven by alarm events, e.g. a salvo of cameras can be displayed when an alarm is raised from a given access point. Events within ‘Control Center’ are generated and logged for card swipes, illegal access and tamper detect.

“In our technical evaluation IndigoVision’s system scored 87%, well ahead of the other systems tested,” said Sourav Sinha, Head of IT Department at Qatar Airways, the managing authority for DIA. “We were particularly impressed with IndigoVision’s ability to deliver very high quality video with minimal bandwidth, its integration with the Access Control and alarm systems and the powerful features of the video management software.”

The IP-security project at DIA follows on from a number of other successful IndigoVision installations where CCTV and Access Control have been integrated across an IP Network. For example, Milford Haven LNG plant at South Hook in Wales has 200 cameras and 50 access points protecting a high-voltage perimeter fence, with Access Control alarms enabling the appropriate camera to pan-and-tilt towards the intrusion point.

Recent high profile IndigoVision projects in the Rail sector (Vancouver Skytrain, 880 cameras and Canada Line, 400 cameras), plus various prisons around the world have also included extensive integration, demonstrating that IndigoVision’s complete end-to-end IP Video system is leading the way in integrated IP security solutions.

9 May 2007 - Senai International Airport Adopts IndigoVision IP CCTV

Aeroporto Internacional de Sultan Ismail, Johor Bahru, também conhecido como Senai International Airport

Sultan Ismail International Airport, Johor Bahru

Senai International Airport, one of Malaysia's fastest growing airport hubs has installed IndigoVision’s IP Video technology to provide site-wide CCTV surveillance. The Airport is located at the southern gateway of the Malaysian Peninsula in one of the country's strategic development zones, the newly launched Iskandar Development Region. The airport has both a passenger terminal and a separate logistics and cargo complex, with plans to handle 2 million tons of cargo a year and become a regional logistics airport for South East Asia.

A completely new surveillance system has been installed in the passenger terminal together with an upgrade to the existing analog CCTV system in the cargo complex. The airport has a good IT network infrastructure and wanted a CCTV system that would be easily expanded in the future, and IP Video was the obvious choice. The system was designed and installed by IndigoVision’s local partner ICSS Electronics Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

Commenting on the project, Mr Kennedy Ayu, Airport General Manager said, “Following an extensive in-house technical and user evaluation of competing systems, the Airport chose IndigoVision’s IP Video technology. The video quality is better than the other systems which we had reviewed, and the flexibility, ease of use and functions of the ‘Control Center’ software impressed the evaluation team.”

‘Control Center’ is IndigoVision’s video and alarm management software and is at the heart of their complete end-to-end IP Video solution. The software allows operators to view live and recorded video from any camera at any point on the network. This flexibility was exploited at Senai International Airport with the positioning of several ‘Control Center’ workstations around the airport and was one of the factors for the airport choosing the IndigoVision solution. The ‘Control Center’ software coupled with IndigoVision Network Video Recorders (NVRs) provide Senai International Airport up to 30 days of video recording and a suite of tools for fast search and analysis of recorded footage.

Over 40 new cameras including 13 Pelco Spectra PTZ domes were added to the original analog system in the cargo complex. Each camera is connected to an IndigoVision 8000 transmitter module which converts the analog camera feed to MPEG-4 DVD quality digital video for transmission over the network. The existing cargo CCTV system was interfaced to the IP Video system via IndigoVision 8000 10-way rack-mounted transmitters connected to the network. This allowed the original investment in the cameras and local control room equipment to be maintained and at the same time allowed full control and monitoring at the passenger terminal security control room. The resulting hybrid system demonstrates that IP Video can be an ideal solution for upgrading existing analog CCTV systems with the benefits of networked video.

IndigoVision’s advanced compression technology ensures high-quality video can be streamed over the network with minimal bandwidth requirements. The existing IT network could therefore accommodate the IP Video system alongside the existing IT infrastructure without increasing network capacity. In addition ICSS installed an IP-based access control system on the same network, demonstrating that IP networks are increasingly becoming the future-proof platform for security systems.

18 April 2007 - New London Adopts IndigoVision’s IP Video for Homeland Security

New London Adota IndigoVision Video IP para Segurança Residencial

IndigoVision’s IP Video used for new Homeland Security

Hoboken, New Jersey-based IP Video systems manufacturer IndigoVision is providing the technology behind a new Homeland Security system for New London in Connecticut. New London is a thriving coastal city with a number of important and sensitive military, nuclear power generation and industrial sites. Local security is therefore of prime importance to the Police Department, who are working in partnership with the Coast Guard and other agencies to ensure the community remains secure and to enable timely emergency response.

The CCTV system, designed and installed by IndigoVision’s local partner New England Communications Systems, covers an area of 6.5 square miles and uses a wireless IP network based on Motorola’s Canopy system. ‘Control Center’, IndigoVision’s enterprise video and alarm management software, allows CCTV operators to view live and recorded video from any of the remote cameras. The flexibility of the IP Video technology means that any component in the system can be located at any point on the network – this provides a scalable and redundant solution. The New London system has exploited this flexibility by locating ‘Control Center’ workstations around the town and waterfront, creating three independent control rooms all with the ability to view live or recorded video from any camera. Recording is achieved using IndigoVision’s Network Video Recorders (NVRs) which are again distributed around the network to minimize bandwidth use and provide a fault tolerant recording solution with automatic backup in the event of an NVR failure.

Commenting on the flexibility of the IP Video system, Captain Edwards of New London Police said “Last July we hosted the East Coast’s largest fireworks display with over 200,000 people attending. We set up a temporary command center at the Fire HQ using the ‘Control Center’ software on a laptop, with the video feeds projected onto a large screen. This simple set up worked very well and helped us to monitor the event locally.”

Each camera is connected to an IndigoVision 8000 transmitter/receiver module. The 8000 converts the camera signal to high-quality digital video for transmission over the wireless network. IndigoVision’s advanced compression technology ensures minimum bandwidth usage and helps maximize the available NVR storage.

There are currently plans to extend the system further to cover more of the waterfront and to share the video feeds with other agencies. As the system is based on a wireless IP network adding additional remote cameras and ‘Control Center’ workstations is simple and cost-effective due to the scalability of the overall solution implemented at New London.

5 April 2007 - Brussels Airport Continues Its Commitment to IP Video with New Upgrade

Aeroporto de Bruxelas Continua Investindo em Vídeo IP

Brussels Airport Continues Its Commitment to IP Video

In 2001 Brussels International Airport was a pioneer of IP Video when it installed what was then the largest networked video CCTV system in Europe. Based on IndigoVision’s IP Video technology the 700+ camera system was installed using their existing LAN and interfaced to the Airport Management System . One of the main reasons for choosing an IP Video solution from IndigoVision was its flexibility and scalability which would accommodate the Airport’s growth plans and allow a smooth migration path to newer technology in the future.

Six years on Brussels Airport is benefiting from their early decision to deploy IP Video by upgrading their current IndigoVision 6000 series technology with the latest series 8000 MPEG-4 product. As well as providing DVD quality video the 8000 series will give Brussels Airport access to real time analytics. Managed by IndigoVision’s local partner Fabricom GTI, Security Division, all 800 of the original series 6000 transmitter/receiver units will eventually be replaced with over 1000 of the new 8000 units by the end of 2007, providing additional surveillance in addition to the benefits of the newer technology. The Airport Management System has also been updated to allow both 6000 and 8000 series units to work alongside each other during the upgrade process.

The CCTV system operates over the whole 3,706 acre site of the airport and provides surveillance footage for many departments, including police, fire service, customs, baggage handling and airport operations, via PC workstations or one of 150 video monitors located around the airport. When it was first installed the existing investment in analog technology was not discarded, with many of the cameras and much of the control room equipment being re-used.

Commenting on the project, Oliver Vellacott, IndigoVision’s CEO said “This project demonstrates that after 6 years operation in a high-security application IP Video is truly field-proven, with the airport continuing its commitment to IP Video technology for many years to come.”

One of the major benefits of the upgrade will be the ability to deploy real time analytics. Real time analytics are run at the edge of the network, i.e. at the camera within the 8000 transmitter/receiver units, making the solution totally scalable. CCTV operators around the airport will be able to detect events as they happen such as congestion, stolen objects, cars parked too long outside a building or people moving the wrong way through security checkpoints. Pre-determined events are identified as they happen, at any camera, and can drive the virtual matrix, e.g. display a salvo on a bank of monitors. Real-time analytics lead to increased effectiveness and improvements in incident detection hit rates.

9 March 2007 - Offshore IP Video Surveillance Deters Poachers

Segurança com Vídeo IP

IndigoVision’s IP Video monitors an offshore fish farm

IndigoVision’s IP Video technology is at the heart of an innovative wireless CCTV system that’s providing both security and operational benefits for an offshore fish farm.

Acuicola Marina is one of the leading producers of farmed fish in the Spanish Province of Castellon on the Mediterranean coast. Their offices and warehouse are located at Burriana, 2 miles inland, with the fish farm facilities sited 6 miles offshore.

The valuable fish stock is a target for poachers and Acuicola Marina has always found it difficult to police the offshore facilities. Offshore patrols were partly successful but proved too costly and so it was decided that a CCTV monitoring system was required. This would provide the necessary security as well as a number of other monitoring functions that could benefit the business, for example submersible cameras monitoring fish growth. IndigoVision’s complete end-to-end IP Video system was chosen to provide the real time video and alarm management facilities required of the system. The overall solution was designed and installed by IndigoVision’s local approved integrator, Ralco Networks.

The system is managed by IndigoVision’s ‘Control Center’ software and recording is achieved using IndigoVision’s Network Video Recorders (NVRs), which are installed on the network at the on-shore offices. Several operators use ‘Control Center’ workstations to view both live and recorded video from any of the offshore cameras. ‘Control Center’ provides advanced search and video analysis tools that the operators use to identify security breaches and to monitor fish growth which helps determine the correct distribution of food. ‘Control Center’ also handles alarm and event data such as equipment malfunctions and power system monitoring, all of which is transmitted over the network.

Commenting on the project, José Soriano Reyes, Ralco Network’s Project Manager, said, “IndigoVision’s system was chosen because of the flexibility of their ‘Control Center’ software, the NVR recording structure that allows the recorders to be sited on-shore and the excellent MPEG-4 compression that ensures high-quality video can be transmitted across the limited bandwidth available on the wireless network.”

A wireless network infrastructure was developed that consisted of a local Wi-Fi network covering the offshore facilities with a 7 Mbps WiMAX radio link back to the on-shore offices, 6 miles away. Day/night weatherproof dome cameras were mounted on the fish pools as well as onboard the production boat and a submersible camera was installed to monitor the fish stock underwater. Each of the cameras is connected to an IndigoVision 8000 transmitter module, which encodes the analog feed to high-quality MPEG-4 digital video for transmission over the wireless network. All of the offshore equipment is powered by specially designed standalone solar powered/battery power packs. A VPN router was also installed to allow access to the video feeds over the internet.

As well as improved security the new CCTV system has provided Acuicola Marina with a number of other benefits. Their production has increased, partly because of the deterrence to poachers and partly from the operational improvements that offshore monitoring has provided. The wireless network not only allows transmission of video and data but also two-way audio, which is being used to provide voice communications between the offices and the offshore facilities. In the near future Acuicola Marina plans to expand the fish farm with the addition of extra fish pools and additional facilities. As IP Video is a very scalable solution, adding additional monitoring will be easy and very cost effective.

8 March 2007 - High Quality IP Fixed Dome Camera

 

IndigoVision’s high quality fixed IP Dome Camera

IndigoVision has launched a new fixed IP dome camera to complement its popular range of PTZ IP domes. The camera interfaces with IndigoVision’s ‘Control Center’ Video and Alarm Management software and its range of Network Video Recorders (NVRs). The fixed IP dome is the latest component to be added to IndigoVision’s integrated IP Video solution.

The camera can be ceiling or wall mounted and uses a Sony EXview HAD CCD Sensor, guaranteeing excellent performance. The camera has IndigoVision’s world-leading MPEG-4 or H.264 encoder technology built in. Analog to digital conversion is completely eliminated with a direct digital interface from the camera sensor to the compression chip. This gives an image quality that is as good as or better than analog fixed domes.

IndigoVision’s dome cameras enable simple and easy deployment of IP based video systems as they only require a single CAT 5 cable for connection to the network. IndigoVision’s integrated solution also allows advanced features such as Activity Controlled Framerate (ACF), Power-over-Ethernet and camera-based Analytics to be deployed in the dome itself – a feature not normally available on stand-alone IP cameras. Incorporating these types of features within the camera provides the user and system with many benefits. For example they reduce the bandwidth and NVR storage requirements during periods of scene inactivity and allow the user to deploy advanced analytics to identify events as they occur in real-time. Coupled with the advanced search tools available for recorded video in ‘Control Center’, this provides the best of both worlds for the operator – facilities that can only really be implemented with a complete, end-to-end IP Video solution.

Over 400 fixed and PTZ dome cameras will be installed to ensure passenger safety and security across the 16 stations of the network. With over 500 IP Video transmitter/receiver modules, 44 Network Video Recorders (NVRs) and 20 workstations running ’Control Center’ software, this system represents one of the largest ever IP Video rail transport projects.

“IndigoVision was chosen because of their proven track record in large scale infrastructure projects and the ability to transmit very high quality, fast response digital video, with minimal network bandwidth,” stated Tim Storteboom, Intercon Security’s Design Consultant for the project. “IndigoVision’s integrated IP Video solution will also provide us with the flexibility and scalability needed for such a large project.”

The heart of the system will be the ‘Operations and Maintenance Center’ (OMC). The Center will feature a large video wall displaying up to 80 video streams simultaneously from any camera on the network, controlled from five operator workstations. The IP Video system will be integrated into the Rail System’s overall SCADA system used in the OMC. The SCADA interface will command video to be displayed based on external events, such as alarms, Emergency Telephone activation and mechanical malfunctions. In addition workstations running IndigoVision’s ‘Control Center’ enterprise video and alarm management software will be installed at each of the rail stations around the network. ‘Control Center’ provides control, administration and viewing of the live camera feeds and recorded video over the IP network.

Camera feeds will be recorded on IndigoVision NVRs located at each station as well as in the OMC. This provides a truly distributed and redundant system and further reduces bandwidth by recording at the network edge, i.e. next to the cameras. With the right permissions, any operator at a ‘Control Center’ workstation or in the OMC will be able to view recorded video from any NVR or live video from any camera on the network. In the unlikely event of a NVR failure, the affected camera feeds are remotely re-routed to record on another NVR.

Each of the 400+ cameras in the system will be connected to IndigoVision’s 8000 rack-mounted transmitter modules. The 8000 converts the analog camera feed to DVD quality, full-frame rate digital video for transmission over the 1GB dual-redundant fiber network ring being installed alongside the rail network. Additional 8000 modules will be installed in the OMC to convert the digital video back to analog for the 80-screen video wall. IndigoVision’s advanced compression technology, which is fully MPEG-4 compliant, will not only ensure minimal bandwidth use but will also ensure that the video is transmitted with low-latency. This means the OMC will be able to smoothly control the PTZ cameras at any point over the 19Km rail network.

7 February 2007 - IndigoVision’s IP Video protects Doha International Airport during the 15th Asian Games

Indigo Vision protege o Aeroporto Internacional de Doha

Doha International Airport main passenger terminal

Hoboken, N.J. – IndigoVision’s complete IP Video solution is at the heart of a 600 camera CCTV surveillance system at the newly expanded Doha International Airport (DIA) in Qatar.

As part of the preparations for DOHA 2006, the 15th Asian Games, DIA expanded its main passenger terminal, added new first and business class lounges and increased the capacity of its cargo facilities. The existing analog CCTV system was replaced with an IndigoVision IP Video solution following an in-depth evaluation of competing technologies by the IT department of QATAR Airways, the managing authority for DIA.

“In our technical evaluation IndigoVision’s system scored 87% , well ahead of the other systems tested” said Sourav Sinha, Head of IT Department at Qatar Airways. “We were particularly impressed with IndigoVision’s ability to deliver very high quality video with minimal bandwidth, its integration with the access control and alarm systems and the powerful features of the video management software.”

The new system, installed by IndigoVision’s local partner Capital Technology WLL, provides security staff with centralized monitoring of the whole airport complex from one control room located in the main passenger terminal – the furthest camera being located over 3 miles away. In addition there are satellite monitoring stations in the cargo terminal and the new first and business class terminal. In total, 11 operators and 2 supervisors use dual-display workstations running ‘Control Center’, Indigovision’s enterprise video and alarm management software.

‘Control Center’ allows operators to monitor live video feeds from any of the 600 cameras and recorded footage from the IndigoVision Network Video Recorders (NVR). Ten NVRs have been installed to provide a redundant recording solution that can record in excess of 30 days of video from all cameras at 4CIF 25fps, via 225TB of Raid 5 storage. The flexibility of IndigoVision’s IP Video means that a ‘Control Center’ workstation can be located at any point on the network, which has enabled the location of further workstations in the DIA CEO’s office and with the Qatar Airways security supervisor.

Capital Technology also installed a new access control system that was fully integrated into ‘Control Center’ to provide full alarm management. The tight integration of alarms with video management in ‘Control Center’ allows the virtual matrix to be driven by alarm events, e.g. a salvo of cameras can be displayed when an alarm is raised from a given access point.

The 600 cameras are a combination of PTZ and fixed, with each being connected to an IndigoVision 8000 transmitter/receiver module which converts the analog feed to DVD quality full-frame rate digital video for transmission over the newly installed LAN. IndigoVision’s advanced compression technology minimizes bandwidth requirements and ensures that the operators view video that is indistinguishable from analog. This project demonstrates IndigoVision’s IP Video technology is flexible and provides CCTV solutions that cannot be matched by traditional analog systems.

5 February 2007 - Major Investment pays off for IndigoVision

Hoboken, N.J. – Over the last year IndigoVision Inc. has seen considerable success as a result of a major investment program, which has further enhanced its position as a leading supplier of IP Video and Alarm management solutions. In that time the number of employees has doubled, including a team of Customer Support Engineers and 11 full time Sales Account Managers to cover Canada, Latin America and the USA.

A regional operations hub in New Jersey has been developed to provide IndigoVision’s customers with overnight deliveries from stock, faster service and returns support and reduced handling costs.

“This recent investment underlines the commitment IndigoVision has to the IP Video market,” Oliver Vellacott, IndigoVision’s CEO said. “Over the last year IndigoVision’s sales have more than doubled and with the expanded team in place and the regional hub on-line we expect to easily exceed last year’s revenue growth in the coming year.”

The expansion has been paralleled by a number of significant wins for the company. At the end of last year IndigoVision was awarded its largest ever US contract, supplying an integrated 550 camera IP Video system for the new casino complex at the Mardi Gras Racetrack and Gaming Center in Florida. Recently the company won a prestigious contract for TransLink in Vancouver, Canada to upgrade the 880 camera CCTV system on SkyTrain, the world’s largest automated light rapid transit system - reflecting IndigoVision’s continued success with infrastructure projects in the transport sector.

23 January 2007 - TransLink Invests in IndigoVision’s IP Video Technology

SkyTrain investe em IndigoVision

SkyTrain station located on the Millennium Line in Vancouver

Hoboken, N.J. – IndigoVision has won a prestigious contract for TransLink in Vancouver, Canada to upgrade the 880 camera CCTV system on SkyTrain, the world’s largest automated light rapid transit system. SkyTrain transports 200,000 passengers a day along 49km of elevated track through 33 stations located in and around Vancouver.

IndigoVision’s IP Video technology will be used to upgrade the existing analog matrix/VCR CCTV system and provide a scalable solution that will meet SkyTrain’s video recording and future surveillance needs. The IP Video CCTV system has been designed by IndigoVision’s local partner, Intercon Security Limited who will coordinate the installation in partnership with Skytrain's own technical team.

Choosing the flexibility of an IP Video system enables SkyTrain to keep most of their original investment in the existing CCTV equipment, while creating a platform for future growth. All the original 880 cameras will be re-used together with the existing matrix switching hardware. At each of the 33 stations the cameras will be connected to IndigoVision’s 8000 transmitter/receiver units. The 8000s convert the analog camera signal to high-quality MPEG-4 digital video for transmission over the local IP network at each station. IndigoVision’s standalone Network Video Recorders (NVRs) will be installed in each station to provide advanced recording facilities for each camera stream.

“IndigoVision’s solution will enable us to implement a hybrid CCTV system that will provide a replacement for the ageing VCR based recording system,” said Iain Morton, Vice President, Intercon Security . “In the long-term however, the flexibility of IP Video will allow SkyTrain to benefit from the power of a fully network system.”

As there is currently very limited network capability between stations only analog feeds will initially be transmitted from each station via an existing fiber link back to the SkyTrain Operations and Maintenance Center (OMC). This will be achieved by installing a further three 8000 receiver modules on the network at each station. These will convert three selected streams from the network to analog for transmission to the OMC where they will be fed into the existing matrix and video wall configuration. The OMC will send PTZ data and switching information across the IP network to each station to control the cameras and select the three camera feeds for display.

When the network is upgraded in the future then the real potential of the IP Video system can be realised including the transmission of DVD-quality live and recorded digital video from all cameras in the system back to the OMC and the deployment of a true virtual matrix. Any operator with the necessary clearance will be able view video from any camera, live or recorded, at any point on the network, i.e. at the OMC or at any station. Real time analytics can be deployed to provide automatic display of camera feeds as events occur and additional cameras can be added to any point on the network without the addition of costly analog video cabling.

10 January 2007 - IndigoVision’s IP Video Monitors 200km2 Mining Complex

Albian Sands Projeto de Mineração

Oil Sands Mining at Muskeg River Mine

Hoboken, N.J. – IndigoVision’s IP Video technology is providing site-wide CCTV surveillance for an oil sands mining complex in Alberta, Canada. The Muskeg River Mine, operated by Albian Sands Energy Inc, is part of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project - a joint venture of Shell Canada Ltd, Chevron Canada Ltd and Western Oil Sands Inc. The mine extracts 155,000 barrels a day of diluted bitumen by removing a mixture of oil and sand from just under the surface using shovels and trucks. The material is then mixed with warm water to separate out the oil from the sand. The mine complex and associated buildings span an area of 200km 2.

The new IP Video CCTV system was designed and installed by IndigoVision’s local partner Intercon Security Limited as part of an access control and security upgrade. As well as the open mine area the CCTV is monitoring the truck staging/delivery area, truck fuelling station, admin buildings and the river water intake/discharge area which is located approximately 8km from the mine. In addition the system is providing surveillance of a remote office complex situated 50km from the mine. The system was installed using the client’s existing LAN with the addition of wireless bridges for the more remote locations around the mine.
