A multitude of uses
There are countless uses for video systems. Our range of services covers the following areas:
1. Casinos, a hotspot of video technology:
There are particularly high demands on the picture quality of video recordings in casino areas. The rapid movements of croupiers and guests demand cameras with high frame rates. However, the picture resolution must be so high that the details on the chips can be clearly distinguished. In addition, it must be possible to find picture recordings quickly in case of complaints. This is no problem with resolutions of up to 12 megapixels and frame rates of 60 pictures per second.
2. The engine room, the other end of demands:
There are very different conditions in play here. The lighting is lower, the temperature can be very high and a camera can quickly be damaged when work is being carried out. Cameras, which have been developed especially for poor lighting conditions and which are fitted in impact-resistant casings, which also withstand ambient temperatures of over 50°C, are required here. The latest camera technology is used here, which provides an early alarm in case of fire or smoke formation - faster than any conventional fire alarm.
3. Cameras on decks:
Cameras which have optimal protection against wind and weather are required in outside areas. An important function on passenger ships is a man overboard recognition system. In this regard, thermal cameras are also used, which can recognise people in any lighting or weather conditions and warn security personnel using the integrated video analysis.
4. Cameras in interior areas:
In prestigious interior areas, the design is most important, without scrimping when it comes to security. For this reason, 360° cameras are used, which can be integrated into ceilings and wall claddings, virtually invisibly. With up to 12 megapixels of resolution and a fisheye lens, the entire room is recorded. The camera itself is able to rectify the fisheye image so that the viewer can see a straight image without any distortions. As a result, blind spots are no longer possible and an incident can be viewed without any gaps.
5. Captain and bridges:
Even the ship's navigation is supported by cameras, which enable secure guidance of the ship into harbours and locks. There are always areas, which cannot be seen from the ship's yardarm. Video technology shows these on special monitors at the touch of a button. Visual display can be largely automated using open interfaces to different ship systems. The networked cruise liner ultimately creates the interfaces for ship management, fire detection system, entertainment, access control. However, video data also includes high-grade personal data which must be safely protected from misuse
With such a large number of cameras, the management of live and recorded video streams is an important challenge. The video management system facilitates the intuitive operation of thousands of cameras by means of deck plans and a logical development of the structure. Automatic visual displays in case of events and alarms support personnel and make effective operation possible. Intelligent video analysis can recognise whether a person has fallen down, is in areas for which they have no authorisation, or simply if queues are forming and additional staff are required. The search for events is quick and easy using intelligent video analysis, which describes the content of the video images.
Videos can be recorded centrally, distributed into network hubs or even redundantly. This means all the availability requirements of the operator can be fulfilled.
Whatever your requirements, we can develop the perfect concept with you.
