The Shanghai Diamond Exchange (SDE) installed the IndigoVision CCTV system to provide assurance of legal and fair transactions. SDE worked with IndigoVision’s local partner, Shanghai Tuijin Electronics Co. Ltd., to identify the ideal monitoring solution for the premises.
IndigoVision stated that SDE chose its services for the full frame rate guarantee and system stability given continuous camera coverage requirements.
The security system offers mapping features, hot spot layout and hidden zone capabilities. IndigoVision’s mapping enables the control room to locate cameras and identify alarms, and the user can simply drag and drop video from the map to a viewing pane. Hot spots allow the most important video to be viewed in a large pane, with related cameras viewed in smaller panes on the same screen.
A hidden zone feature blocks out areas to avoid viewing data or images that are irrelevant or intrusive, such as residential windows or computer screens with sensitive data. However, unlike privacy zones from analog systems or other IP video vendors, IndigoVision’s solution provides these zones without permanently losing the video. Authorized personnel can view the whole scene if necessary, including these hidden areas and the full scene is recorded for evidential purposes.
Four control center workstations monitor 328 fixed and four PTZ cameras. The analog cameras are connected to the network using 332 IndigoVision video encoders. In addition to viewing using control center on PC monitors the cameras can all also be viewed on traditional monitors using 50 IndigoVision receiver units.
The recording of data is managed by an integrated third party product controlled by IndigoVision’s NVR software.
