Securing economic expansion Chile is without a doubt one of the largest exporters of copper in the world, something that accounts for its strong trade relations with the emerging economic superpower, China. Despite these rich mineral deposits and promising dealings, Chile has a limited supply of energy resources and has therefore taken a number of progressive steps in support of renewable energy sources. Consequently, wind farms are popping up all over the country. Naturally ensuing this development are the means to monitor and secure these highly important areas. Near the town of Los Vilos, the two wind farms have recently been built. They share a video surveillance system from the systems integrator, Dessin Electrónica Ltda., and TKH Security Solutions USA, the manufacturer of advanced global video surveillance solutions. This new surveillance system includes an array of cameras, sensors, communication systems, viewing and management workstations, and network video recorders (NVR). It is intended to monitor the wind turbines and manage the farm’s perimeter for security purposes. Centralised oversight Using Siqura high-speed PTZ IP dome cameras to monitor every two or three wind turbines, video streams are sent to a central control room. The system is configured with video motion detection, and motion sensors are connected to the cameras’ input/output ports. This makes it possible to alert operators in the control room of unusual or suspicious occurrences. Siqura cameras are also mounted at various points along the perimeter of the wind farm terrains, including the main entrances and visitor viewing areas. In addition to image material, audio streams are sent to Siqura S-60 D decoders, allowing for public announcements to be made over an intercom system. From the control center, security personnel keep a close eye on the situation and take action when necessary through the video management system, Siqura VMS Pro. Siqura VMS Pro is a multiserver, multi-user IP surveillance management system used for monitoring real-time and recorded video, audio, and text data, and to control cameras and I/O devices. The software supports surveillance systems consisting of digital IP cameras, video servers, and recorders in IP surveillance networks. Through the intelligent search options and event handling included in Siqura VMS Pro, relevant recordings will be saved on one of two hardware network video recorders (Siqura i-NVR). Via this centralised VMS system, operators can view live video, search recordings, and manage intrusion, access, and deterrence controls. Ultimately, this enables personnel to ensure the immediate safety of the wind farm and its employees and visitors, as well as to use video images for forensic verification if required. Ensuring a successful surveillance solution    Siqura cameras are mounted at various points along the perimeter of the wind farm terrains With such a multifaceted system, engineers from Dessin and Siqura did extensive testing throughout the design and implementation stages of the project to ensure its success. The initial testing was carried out at Dessin’s own testing facilities and entailed a demonstration of the system to the end-user. Thereafter, Dessin and Siqura tested the system at the wind farms upon implementation, giving the systems integrator and manufacturer the opportunity to fine-tune the network’s configuration. The ultimate solution was tested in a final demonstration for the end-user’s management team, with gratifying results. Due to the success of this surveillance network, it is being replicated in other important power and distribution plants throughout Chile. Powering progress In a country rife with minerals and natural resources, having enough energy is critical to fuel economic growth. However, in order to have enough energy, Chile has had to get innovative. As a result, alternative sources of energy are becoming increasingly popular and wind power is now widespread throughout this Andean nation. Ensuring the safety and security of these wind farms is therefore vital to progress. Through working together, companies like TKH Security Solutions USA and Dessin are able to help protect the people and property at these modern power plants, guaranteeing that the economy is free to grow and expand.

BCDVideo completes video surveillance solution for banking and finance

Financial institutions of all sizes demand simple, reliable solutions to protect against fraud, theft, and accidents in the workplace. Advancements in camera resolution and storage capabilities have put pressure on banks and credit unions to upgrade their video surveillance systems. Upgrading to a modern, economical NVR server will greatly increase system performance and scalability for small-budget projects with benefits seen across both loss prevention and business insights. Reliable high performance However, not all banks have the same security budget as large institutions. This makes high-power, custom-built solutions seem unrealistic; however, small projects featuring bandwidth limitations need to retain the ability to scale up depending on future surveillance demands. Before any system expansion can occur, reliable high-performance must be established. White-box solutions compromise quality and underperform when exposed to the tough requirements of the financial security market. Fortunately, custom-built, video-optimised solutions are not exclusive to large multinational financial institutions. Network architecture When upgrading an ineffective digital security system, a new network architecture needs to be created. Usually, this means switching from DVR to NVR servers. As a result, network switches attach to the camera allowing for easier future system expansion. Along with the newly gained scalability, throughput performance on servers can achieve significantly higher levels.BCDVideo offers servers, networking and workstations that provide enterprise-quality performance for all financial projects, regardless of size Implementing a complete video solution with high-performance servers, modern networking protocols and powerful workstations in financial institutions is now possible, even for small projects. BCDVideo offers servers, networking and workstations that provide enterprise-quality performance for all financial projects, regardless of size.
