|The X-Series provides enhanced features offering a massive 40x optical zoom with dual-mode illumination
Located in Chile's powerhouse region for commerce and maritime activity, Valparisio's busy port handles containerised cargo, general cargo & vehicles destined for the densely populated metropolitan areas. Multiple Redvision X-Series™ rugged marine grade PTZ cameras were selected as the preferred surveillance solution for Octopuss' front-end Video Management Software (VMS) system.
Port Security is key & requires measures to reduce risks and mitigate criminal actions that threaten security personnel, facilities, vessels and the public. Valparasio Port authorities as part of an ongoing security upgrade , installed a new fibre optic network within the port, and is keenly viewed as an important development for the container storage systems and security system alike.
Designed to sustain in rough environments
Commercial director, Marcello Aracena del Rio commented "We chose Redvision because the camera has been designed to last in surveillance applications that are beyond the mechanical capabilities of traditional PTZ domes conventional pan and tilt systems. Redvision's X-Series™ marine grade finish PTZ is extremely well engineered and rugged. The aluminium-cast housing is hard anodised before 25 year superior marine paint finish is applied, and all fixings are marine stainless steel to counter adverse effects of corrosive weather conditions, an unavoidable circumstance of maritime applications. Regardless of weather, an integrated wiper made from a single sprung steel mechanism with a durable silicone wiper provides reliable, long-life, low maintenance and, to help protect against sun a deep visor is fitted".
Powerful White Light Uniquely, the X-Series™ provides enhanced features offering a massive 40x optical zoom with dual-mode illumination. The dual illuminator consists of both IR and white light LEDs, allowing operators to switch between the two light sources with a single click giving full colour images at night, providing high quality video evidence of criminal activity and incidents for prosecution purposes and police investigations when required.
"Valparasio Port was a huge challenge and involved complex communication networks both locally and remote. Built on an open, modular software framework, our VMS system gave the port the ability to maximise the value of security investments and freedom to choose the best of technologies available. Redvision's X-Series™ cameras were easily integrated into the VMS security system and helped strengthen perimeter security. The feature rich video management system allowed us to deliver efficiencies through a single user interface and alarm management platform" Tali Haviv, Director, Octopuss
