Indigovision improves safety, security and speed on Santiago Metro

Santiago, Chile

The new Indigovision system installed at Santiago Metro network has helped to improve the response to incidents and in addition, security monitoring at each station has also been enhanced.
More than two million passengers a day travel on the Santiago metro, the backbone of the Chilean capital’s public transport system. Metro system management was keen to ensure the security of passengers – both in the sense of safer travel and reduced crime – and worked with Indigovision partner Diebold Bitelco Chile to find the solution.

Security personnel have been able to track individuals responsible for crime and apprehend them – including capturing images of an offender who shot and killed two passengers and wounded four others in a metro carriage in July 17th 2011. The movement of passengers can also be analysed, for safety and speed of transit.

Felipe Bravo Busta, Technology Sub Project Manager on the Metro system stated: “Indigovision’s solution has made for a safer Metro system in all senses – lower crime and less risk of accidents due to overcrowding.”

Indigovision won the contract from the Santiago authorities due to the quality of the system and the ability to search recorded footage and easily identify incidents, and to keep the project within budget.

The system now covers 48 stations. All existing cameras were able to be reused by connecting them to the network via Indigovision 9000 video encoders. There are 415 fixed and 406 PTZ cameras across the Metro network.

A key to the successful operation of the system was the decision to deploy a distributed and scalable IP Video solution. Indigovision's distributed architecture replicates the configuration data throughout the system so that no central server is required.

Video is recorded onto 43 Indigovision Windows NVRs (Network Video Recorders). Some backup NVRs units are also in place should any NVR be taken off-line – the backup NVRs will automatically start recording.

Due to the installation of a 56 node optical fibre network within 48 stations across the city, data can be transferred to Control Center, Indigovision’s video management software. Another system advantage is the alarm escalation integrated into Control Center, which ensures that all incidents will be registered and alerts relevant staff to incidents in their areas.

Irish port made safe with Hikvision

Lying 12 kilometres south of Dublin City Centre, Dún Laoghaire (pronounced Dunleary) is widely recognised as having one of the finest man-made harbours in the world. The harbour itself consists of two huge granite piers. The East Pier is one mile long, the West Pier even longer, and together they enclose more than 100 hectares of terminal buildings, car and lorry parks, commercial piers, and leisure craft marinas. Having been the major gateway to England for goods and people for 200 years, it is also now on track to becoming Ireland’s major marine, leisure and tourism destination having received significant investment to extend its recreational and amenity value. Keeping this huge area safe for all visitors is a major undertaking and Hikvision cameras and hybrid recorders have recently been added to make sure this happens.
