For complete site monitoring, a range of sensors and detectors can be used, with detailed Geographical Information System (GIS) site maps that can be zoomed into great details views. All types of sensors and cameras are represented as an overly symbolic layer on the site maps to enable fast event location identification and drag & drop of element’s icon to be displayed on the wall. A Situational Server performs automated event reporting and handling based on video analytics and other analysis tools with on-going system health monitoring.
Surveillance Operations and Control Center is basically used for cameras video streams monitoring, event analysis and decision making. In order to enable the display of multiple relevant cameras concurrently, and a range of other situational systems such as GIS maps, sensors and detectors, a large video wall is used.
In addition to military and boarder protection sites, Surveillance systems are being used in airports, mission critical facilities and other governments and municipalities applications.
Any large site such as Airport or Safe City project is dynamic and has to be scalable in order to cater to the growth and expansion of that site and also to be upgradeable and versatile in order to incorporate new sensors and tie in different functions such as utilities.
