City Of Calgary’s Light Rail Transit System Employs Genetec’s Omnicast Video Surveillance Platform
In 1981, the city of Calgary in Alberta, Canada opened the first leg of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) line for the city's visitors and residents. Today, when searching for a suitable replacement for the CTrain's video surveillance system, several qualities were paramount.
Arecont Vision Megapixel Cameras Monitor Crowds At Hsing Tian Kong Temple In Taiwan
Hsing Tian Kong Temple in Taipei, Taiwan, is located on a street corner near the center of the country’s capital city, occupying more than 7,000 square meters. The temple's huge number of visitors suggested the need to enhance an existing analog video surveillance system installed at the large facility. Given that the temple is a preserved cultural site, installation of the system had to be simple and as non-invasive as possible to preserve the building’s beautiful architectural design elements.
A New Perspective On Thermal Imaging
Thermal security cameras have been known for nighttime applications under low or zero lighting conditions. When conditions are ideal, thermal cameras allow a person to “see”
what the eye cannot, even in complete darkness.
Sanford Expands City-Wide Installation Of Genetec Solution To Manage And Protect Newly Built Public Safety Complex
The city of Sanford, Florida, is located less than 30 miles
northeast of Orlando and serves as the seat of Seminole
County. It is well over 130 years old and home to a diverse
population of just over 53,000.
City Of Aspen, Colorado, Installs Genetec’s AutoVu IP License Plate Recognition System To Monitor Parking
The city of Aspen, Colorado, at an elevation just shy of 8000 feet, is a popular ski and snow destination resort. It draws a large tourist population every year, including a number of world-famous celebrities.
Port Freeport Invests In The Latest IP Video Surveillance Technology
With massive cargo ships coming into the port daily from Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Venezuela,
and many more, and employing well over 13,000 people, Port Freeport uses video surveillance technology to ensure
the safety of its employees as well as to ensure the smooth execution of daily operations. More so, as one of the
fastest growing ports on the Gulf Coast, Port Freeport is in constant surveillance of incoming threats from the water
CMOS And CCD — Small Differences Along The Way From Light To A Signal
Historically, CCD (charged coupled device) sensors have
existed much longer than CMOS sensors, that is to say, for
more than 40 years. Due to constant improvement and
optimization over the years, CCD sensors today stand for
excellent image quality. In 2009, the American scientists
Willard Boyle and George E. Smith were awarded the
Nobel Prize for Physics for the invention of the CCD sensor.
Originally developed in 1969 for the storage of data, the
potential of the charge coupled device as a light sensitive
apparatus was soon realized.
Integrated And Networked Physical Security
A traditional security system is composed of a variety of subsystems such as video
surveillance, access control and intrusion detection alerts. By themselves, each of these
systems is a critical component of a sophisticated security infrastructure. But for the most
part, these platforms operate as separate components without the ability to communicate
with each other. This inability to share critical security information between devices and
platforms leads to missing data, which can result in security hazards and lapses.
Preserving Irreplaceable Video Evidence
There’s no margin for error when it comes to public safety. Metropolitan police departments all across the country are doing their best to deter criminal activity. When
it can’t be prevented, the agencies want to apprehend and help to successfully prosecute the perpetrators. With human resources stretched thin, video surveillance has become a
critical tool in the war on crime. Video surveillance puts thousands of extra “eyes” on the street, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Control Access And Protect Assets With Print-On-Demand Intelligent ID Cards
Fraud and theft are constant threats to any organization, and the protections put in place against malicious activities must constantly evolve. To solve this challenge, businesses are deploying multiple levels of security, of which access cards are a critical component.
