Ipswich City Council Pound Goes HD-SDI

Ipswich pound has selected an HD-SDI surveillance solution
Ipswich pound has selected an HD-SDI surveillance solution

IPSWICH Pound is a high sensitivity site which has experienced incidents where Ipswich City Council staff have been harassed by members of the public. There was an old analogue security surveillance system installed, which has recently been swapped out for a new HD-SDI solution supplied by CTS.

Walking the site, it’s a much bigger operation than you’d think – there are separate facilities for dogs and cats, there’s a store, admin areas, multiple reception areas. And the site is large – it seems about 5 acres or so, perhaps a little more. There are even compact stock yards and paddocks for horses, as well as a substantial 24-hour drop off facility, allowing small animals to be left at the pound after hours. 

Commensurate with the complexity of the site, video coverage is comprehensive, too. There are not too many areas that don’t have good coverage, often from 2 directions.

Ipswich City Council has upgraded its Safe City public surveillance solution to Genetec Security Center and added Briefcam. The integration was undertaken by Elbex Access and Security.  

IPSWICH City Council owns and manages one of the oldest and best known public surveillance systems in Australia. It was installed in 1994 and represented the best video surveillance technology of the day, including extremely capable Elbex EX2000 motorised PTZs, and multiple Elbex PTZ pendent domes. 

The original system was installed by Council in response to rising street crime and the designers and operators of the Safe City solution were tasked with making Ipswich safer for its citizens. In partnership with Ipswich Police, and with unqualified long term support from Ipswich City Council, that goal has been well and truly realised for more than 2 decades.

ANSTO Upgrades With Gallagher and Geutebruck

ANSTO OPAL reactor
ANSTO OPAL reactor

ANSTO brings a legacy site, assets worth billions and a complex risk profile together into the sort of challenging, fulfilling electronic security application most security managers can only dream of. 

I WAS mighty curious when invited to take a look at the fruits of a recent CCTV and access control upgrade at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) facility at Lucas Heights, in Sydney. As the location of the Open Pool Australian Lightwater (OPAL) nuclear reactor, this is one of the most secure sites in Australia and a dream site for security managers.

VIC Watch Security has undertaken an Inner Range Integriti security management system upgrade for Melbourne’s Rec Xpress 24/7 Fitness Centres. The solution supports 12,000 cardholders, is spread across 3 sites and integrates with a Hikvision video surveillance system.

24-hour fitness centres are wonderfully convenient, giving busy customers the opportunity to wedge in a workout at any time of the day or night. But every 24-hour business needs to think extra hard about security and safety. For Rec Xpress 24/7 Fitness Centres, the ideal solution had to manage access, report intrusion and duress events, as well as integrating video monitoring with event recording.

CEM Systems AC2000 AE Securing Auckland Airport

Auckland Airport International Airport
Auckland Airport International Terminal

ADT Security is installing a CEM Systems’ Linux-based AC2000 AE IP access control solution managed by AC2000 management software in a virtual environment at Auckland Airport in New Zealand. The system comprises 1000 doors and more than 14,000 cardholders.

THERE’S no way to overstate the multi-layered complexity of airport electronic security applications. These are rarely Greenfield sites. Upgrades are shaped and constrained by existing infrastructure and by the nature of systems that came before them. Airports are built concentrically over years, like the rings of a tree. Under their glittering glass and steel skins lie core services cemented into place decades before.

The Omnivision team
The Omnivision team

Axis Communications and Swinburne University have partnered with integrator Omnivision to install refurbished Axis cameras and a Milestone XProtect Professional VMS at Kew East Primary School in Melbourne. 

AFTER a number of incidents involving vandalism and graffiti in and out of school time, Kew East Primary School in Melbourne needed to enhance its level of security. But according to Manoj Jayasuriya, MD at Melbourne-based integrator Omnivision, while Kew East Primary needed to enhance its security there was very little budget to get the job done.

Integrator Digital Connections & Security Systems has installed integrated Digifort IP video surveillance and Vauban access control systems for Garmin Australasia. There's also Samsung cameras, Tecom alarms, video analytics, dual perimeter detection, intercoms, and turnstiles.

GARMIN is a manufacturer of future-proof high technology and it shows. At the company’s new purpose-built facility in western Sydney, security is taken seriously. Arriving at the site there are fences, motorised gates deployed after hours, rising barriers that manage car park access. I can see LPR cameras on poles in the car park and there are intercoms and prox readers on entry points.

NYC Marathon Sony Cameras, Milestone VMS, Firetide Mesh

Installing Sony cameras and Firetide mesh
Installing Sony cameras and Firetide mesh

New York City Road Runners secured the world’s largest marathon with Sony IP cameras integrated by EIA Inc, carried on a wireless mesh using Firetide and supported by Milestone video management software. 

ORGANISER of the New York Marathon, the NY Road Runners, needed more situational awareness around the marathon route, particularly in and around leafy Central Park. Counter intuitively, they also needed a system that could be quickly and easily installed and dismantled.

The answer was Sony IP cameras connected to a rapidly deployed wireless network. This solution resulted in no permanent alterations to municipal infrastructure along the race route, yet allowed much greater situational awareness and emergency response control from the event’s emergency operations centre.
