The smartest Video Content Analysis (VCA) system is the latest addition to already award-winning temporary fencing on show on stand J50 at Counter Terror Expo (CTX) 2014.
The solutions developed by Zaun, Hardstaff Barriers and Highway Care will be showcased at London Olympia on 29 and 30 April.
The three partners have integrated state-of-the-art electronics with the ultra high security woven mesh ArmaWeave fence, and a range of temporary PAS 68 solutions – Rapid Deployable System (RDS), MultiFence and SecureGuard – PAS 68 enhancements, blockers and bollards.
They have incorporated the latest VCA system using high-performance Pan Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) cameras from video intelligence experts EyeLynx into their RDS that was a double award winner at last year’s Counter Terror Expo Excellence Awards.
RDS saves up to 90% of police time and first proved its rapid-install-with-high-security credentials during a whistle-stop tour around the three main UK political parties’ autumn conferences in 2012 and at the G8 summit in Northern Ireland in May 2013.
After the Labour conference, Inspector Steve Worth of Greater Manchester Police said: “RDS is now firmly the preferred product for the delivery of security operations for party political conferences we police, fully supported by The Home Office.”
EyeLynx’s Pharos system is the only true rapid deployment High Definition (HD) surveillance system on the market with Edge Recording Cluster ERCTM capability to incorporate an intelligent recorder, management software and wireless communications all in the same unit.
It uses the SharpView VCA recording engine, which can accommodate multiple slave PTZ cameras of any make connected in to the master. Indeed, the number of ‘slaves’ is limited only by power and bandwidth requirements.
Cameras record HD 24/7 and whenever the perimeter is compromised or a potential intruder approaches too close to the fence, Pharos will send a snapshot alert to the control centre for visual verification – or even to assigned personal mobile devices, such as the police chief or nearest constable to the breach.
Developers have embedded the cabling into the fence posts and created an integrated power cabinet in the post base.
Only the master unit needs a SIM card, which beams the video intelligence to a workstation, into which anyone authorised can dial and view live footage, or rewind and replay from any of the cameras.
PAS 68 MultiFence was developed to resist attack by 7.5 tonne vehicles driven straight at it at 40mph especially for the London 2012 Olympics.
