MESSOA's PTZ speed dome chosen to monitor giant pandas’ habitats
MESSOA's PTZ speed dome chosen to monitor giant pandas’ habitats

The giant panda is one of the most recognised and studied animals in the world today. When China gave the Taipei Zoo two giant pandas in December 2008, the Taiwanese public responded enthusiastically. The Taipei Zoo, which is owned by the Taipei City Government, has now selected MESSOA's SDS710M PTZ speed-dome cameras for monitoring of the pandas' zone. These cameras feature integrated auto-tracking software that provides zoo staff in the security control room with 24-hour surveillance of the pandas, ensuring that staff are able to monitor the pandas' activities and track their movements around the clock. These kinds of video records are extremely valuable to scientists and those from the zoo are sure to make a major contribution to global panda research. The PTZ speed domes feature absolute-coordinate-axis positioning (via two-way RS485) and integrated auto-tracking software, facilitating 24-hour monitoring and observation of giant panda behaviours. They also integrate high-performance zooms with superfine 0.02° pan controls to deliver exceptionally smooth tracking that facilitates capture of moving subjects. The cameras pan at up to 430° per second and tilt at up to 200° per second, allowing quick and efficient capture of the pandas. Giant pandas are an endangered species native to the mountains of central China. They are typically found at elevations between 1,400 and 3,500 feet in Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu Provinces. The Taipei Zoo constructed its Xinguang Special Exhibit House specifically to provide the two giant pandas sent to Taiwan with a similar, suitable habitat. The building's three comfortable and health-centric indoor enclosures are all air conditioned and maintain the interior humidity at 60-70% all year round. Given that the MESSOA SDS710M operates flawlessly in 20-80% relative humidity and is IP66/67-compliant indeed, it was the perfect choice for the conditions inside the panda enclosures. The Taipei Zoo has selected the MESSOA SDS710M to monitor its precious pandas and track their behaviour, confident that the cameras will deliver outstanding performance and reliability over the long term. The PTZ speed domes features absolute-coordinate-axis positioning and integrated auto-tracking software MESSOA SDS700 PTZ speed dome series features: Vandal-proof (750 Kg) speed dome 216X (18X optical), 312X (26X optical), 432X (36X optical) zoom 128X wide dynamic range (PRO series) Turbo-charged preset speeds: pan 430°/sec.; tilt 200°/sec. Highly accurate panning (±0.02°) 256 preset points (group function is available) 24 3D privacy zones Intelligent motion detection Alarm I/O: 6-in/1-out Supports absolute (X, Y, Z) position commands and able to integrate auto-tracking software and e-map related applications Supports multiple protocols Networkable (full D1) and easy to install (hot swappable) Scheduling: supports 28 schedules per week Tours: supports four programmable tours (up to 6 minutes each) Waterproofing: IP66/ IP67-compliant

Bosch Security Systems AutoDome cameras enhance security for Netherlands police force
Bosch Security Systems AutoDome cameras enhance security for Netherlands police force

The last day of April 2013 was a historical date in the Netherlands. Following his mother’s abdication, Prince Willem-Alexander’s swearing-in as the new king means the country once again has a male monarch for the first time in 123 years. As a result, the program for the festivities on this Queen’s Day in Amsterdam was particularly comprehensive. However, this also posed a large challenge for Amsterdam’s police force, who had to monitor the large crowds expected around the castle on the Dam, as well as alongside the route of the celebrations. Another task, of course, was to shield the royal couple and the visitors from any attack. These concerns were justified not only because of the scale of the event, but also because of tragic incidents that occurred on Queen’s Day in the past.     For these reasons, Amsterdam’s police looked for a partner who was able to support them in terms of video surveillance as well as monitoring the streams of visitors. They decided on the Dutch company, Connection Systems, which specializes in the video surveillance of large-scale events and freely moving crowds. Connection Systems was founded in 2000 and has been utilising Bosch Security Systems solutions from the very beginning.    In order to reinforce the police’s own monitoring network, 75 additional Bosch AutoDome cameras were installed in Amsterdam. These were integrated within the existing security network, and positioned six metres above ground level. In addition, the cameras were connected to 35 UPS boxes that would have maintained operations in the event of a power blackout. The installation of the surveillance system took three weeks and was ready in time for all the rehearsals necessary prior to April 30. This was to ensure that all likely risks during the event were covered, and that the police would always be in full control of the situation.    Connection Systems decided to use Bosch cameras for two major reasons: their robust construction makes them easy to mount and dismount, and the permanent availability of Bosch’s technical support service. Frank Wagemans, Director at Connection Systems, pointed out after the ceremonies that not one event had failed in the company’s history when using this camera solution. Thus, everyone involved in the investiture on April 30 will remember the event as having been run perfectly.     For more information on Bosch AutoDome products, visit www.boschsecurity.us.
