Zandar treats Florida water treatment facility

Published on 17 May, 2006

Zandar Technologies, a leading innovator in the design and development of high quality multi-source display and management solutions, has upgraded its video surveillance and monitoring system for a Central Florida water utility.  Although the majority of the surveillance system was installed in 2003 by local experts SiteSecure, Inc., Zandar and SiteSecure teamed up again to update the system, providing full network access for the operators and a custom User Interface based on Zandar 's new Z-Configurator control software.

The Central Florida utility had some demanding requirements from the offset.  Seeking cost-effective alternatives to increase security, improve response and reduce down time, the utility wanted a CCTV system that enabled the plant to record, but also monitor live, in real-time, 125 to 150 cameras simultaneously.  SiteSecure, Inc. developed the solution using Zandar FusionPro MultiViewers and six high definition DLP rear projection systems projected onto a single 75" x 281" custom screen.  

Installed throughout the county, the camera images are routed over a circular self-correcting 1GB fibre network to decoders located at the command and control facility.  Signals are then distributed to a matrix switcher that distributes video and control data to Digital Video Recorders and the Zandar MultiViewers.  The complete system can be controlled over a Local Area Network and the operators have the ability to assign various, distinctive border colors and other camera identification colors to segment the overall display and highlight specific cameras and views.

"We are able to monitor up to 150 cameras images by incorporating six Zandar FusionPro MultiViewers, each displaying 25 cameras in a 5 by 5 format," stated Deirdre Smith, CEO at Zandar Technologies.  "One of the most exciting, and practical, features, is the flexibility and scalability of the solution that will allow the utility to expand the system as its requirements evolve and grow."   

This upgrade marks Zandar Technologies continued commitment to developing MultiViewer technology as the customers' display requirements change.  The project follows on the success of recent monitoring, display and surveillance projects across the globe using Zandar MultiViewers for a truly versatile solution.

Zandar offers a range of MultiViewer solutions including the FusionPro+ and Predator Series.  FusionPro+ is ideal for critical applications where 24/7 operation is required, with its modular and upgradeable rack, dual redundant hot swappable Power Supplies and easy access for upgrades and support.  Predator Series MultiViewers also combine the ability to view both camera images and computer data at extremely high quality for live monitoring, with simple operator control or trigger inputs for display reconfiguration in alarm conditions.
