Following on from a public tender process, the project to install Wisenet cameras throughout the comune was won by Seti Snc, a specialist electronic security systems integrator. Seti Snc was able to demonstrate that by deploying Wisenet cameras integrated with INQUIRIS video management software (VMS) platform, local police would be able to effectively monitor activity throughout the comune in order to respond quickly to any incident or suspicious activity.
High Definition Cameras
24 Wisenet XNO-6080R bullet cameras have been carefully located in key public areas.
The XNO-6080RP is a true Day/Night 2 megapixel high definition camera with built-in IR illumination. Equipped with the world’s best 150dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology and the word’s best low light motorised varifocal lens, the XNO-6080R is part of the Wisenet X series of cameras which are supercharged by the most powerful DSP chipset ever incorporated into a full camera range. Together, these features ensure superb quality colour images are captured, regardless of the environment or the time of day.
Images captured by the cameras are transmitted via a HiperLAN wireless network to the municipality of Torbole’s central control room. The wireless transmission of the images is greatly assisted by the XNO-6080R utilising H.265 compression and WiseStream II, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image. As such, it is one of the most bandwidth friendly cameras available.
The deep integration of the cameras with the INQUIRIS VMS ensures control operators are alerted if the cameras are not being powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE) and therefore online, or if they have switched to a UPS standby power supply. In the event there is any disruption, images are stored on an SD card on board the cameras and are subsequently automatically transmitted to the control room when the connection is restored.
In addition to control room operators, other authorised personnel such as patrolling police officers are also able to securely gain access to the live or recorded images via a smartphone or tablet using a free to download App.
“The Wisenet XNO-6080RP cameras and INQUIRIS VMS have proved to be the perfect combination for this type of town centre surveillance project,” said Cirillo Flaminio, Technical Manager and Legal Representative for Seti Snc. “Equally important, we have been able to work closely in partnership with the Hanwha Techwin pre-sales and technical team based in Italy to ensure the project was completed on time and that it is operating to the client’s complete satisfaction.”
