Seaport Adopts IP Network Surveillance
Based on guidelines from the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security, as well as its own desire for increased security, Jaxport wanted to add a high-tech video monitoring solution to complement its existing systems. The Jaxport solution, completed in August, combined wireless communications with multiple IP components and motion detection software to enables streaming of live video to patrol cars.
“The Jaxport surveillance solution is the most advanced IP monitoring and security system in the country,” said Steve Martin, assistant vice president of the JVC’s video imaging systems div.
Respecting bandwidthThe Jaxport system uses multiple VR-N100Us, each of which is capable of integrating and managing thousands of video cameras under a single IP. The controllers store all individual camera data; only video from the requested camera is transmitted to the network level so as not to drain the port’s bandwidth.
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Quality Communications, Fire and Safety Inc., was the systems integrator for the Jaxport project. “We brought JVC in as a value engineering entity to provide a much better solution as well as additional costs savings,” said Steve Haney, regional construction manager of Quality Communications.
