Sony IP cameras drive up public security

By using the very latest state-of-the-art security cameras, alongside intelligent software, transport locations can provide the public with a level of protection and security that instils confidence in their safety.

Sony video and surveillance cameras are the very latest in innovation and technology for capturing clear, blur-free images and video. The network-based video cameras can run on legacy or IP infrastructures and provide a powerful tool for maintaining public safety and well-being.

The Sony software accompanying the surveillance cameras is easy to use and enables users to monitor, playback and record images at the highest resolution.

The Sony technology enables authorities across the world to carefully monitor and check their transport systems to ensure all travellers have a safe and secure journey.


Transports Metropolitan de Barcelona (TMB), the public company responsible for managing the bus network, metro line and other transport options in Barcelona, needed a modern security system to replace the analogue installation in its Horta bus depot.

Sony worked closely with TMB and E-Solutions to install a security system bringing together SNC-RZ30P digital, IP network cameras and RealShot Manager. This combination of technology means that the cameras can be both fixed in specific positions and also tour the premises to make wider checks. The system is controlled by three PCs and images are recorded 24 hours a day to ensure round the clock protection for travellers.

The system comprises mostly mobile SNC-RZ30P cameras, which are programmed to constantly tour the premises, while others are fixed in specific positions that can be modified from the control PC "Digital systems have the advantage that they can make cameras smart," commented Victor Ribera, Head of Telecommunications Systems at TMB.

Miguel Angel Fernández, Head of Mobile Material and Installations at the Horta Operations Centre, said: "The specifications required were extremely complicated. We are talking about mobile cameras, installed outdoors and in areas with varying degrees of lighting. The SNC-RZ30P is a highly versatile camera that provides all of these features, as well as a high-quality picture."
