High Definition Surveillance System protects Grimsby and Immingham Ports

Avigilon : 03 June, 2010  (Application Story)
Major British Harbours make use of Avigilon HD Surveillance System to improve operations and improve security whilst supporting existing network and legacy cameras


Avigilon has announced that Associated British Ports (ABP), the UK’s largest port operator as well as a cruise port operator, has deployed the Avigilon HD Surveillance System to comply with industry regulations, boost security, and enhance operational efficiencies at the Ports of Grimsby and Immingham. “The Avigilon HD Surveillance System allows us to monitor the entire port operationsâ€ from loading ships to crane operationsâ€ from a centralized location to ensure port security, employee safety, and productivity,  explained Michael Howarth, Humber IT Infrastructure Manager at Associated British Ports. “The Avigilon HD Surveillance System is versatile and flexible enough to support hardware from many vendorsâ€ including analogue camerasâ€ and can make use of our existing network for a more cost-effective and powerful surveillance solution.  ABP uses Avigilon Control Center NVMS with High Definition Stream Management (HDSM) to seamlessly manage the HD surveillance system 24x7. At the Port of Grimsby, ABP installed two 11 MP Avigilon HD cameras to monitor vehicle entry and exit and to provide driver identification and license plate detail and one 3 MP Avigilon HD camera for complete coverage of the junction leading to the control room. Six 5 MP Avigilon HD cameras are used at the Port of Immingham to monitor and control the lockgates, which open and close to allow ships to pass through, and to ensure that there are no obstructions to prevent the lockgates from opening when required. All six 5 MP Avigilon HD cameras are connected through the fibre network back to the marine control room where the system is monitored live. At the Immingham Bulk Park Terminal, four Avigilon analog video encoders are used to integrate a new analog PTZ camera and existing analog cameras into the Avigilon HD Surveillance System for greater performance and manageability. Four 1 MP Avigilon HD cameras provide site overview and monitor the entrance and exit to the weighbridges, where cargo is weighed. Four Avigilon NVRs record and store 30 days of continuous footage. “In today’s economy, all organizations, including seaports, are driven to achieve a maximum return on their investments. A high definition surveillance system can help port operators meet compliance regulations, improve operations, and improve security,  said Dave Tynan, vice president of global sales and marketing at Avigilon. “The Avigilon HD Surveillance System delivers reliable and powerful Network Video management software combined with superior image quality to provide an audit trail of undisputable evidence to minimize downtime, boost productivity, and reduce liability costs.  The Avigilon HD Surveillance System has helped ABP improve operational efficiencies at the Ports of Grimsby and Immingham. By leveraging its existing network infrastructure, ABP was able to reduce installation time and costs. ABP has also been able to centralize several processes, including weighbridge and lockgate operations, which can now be managed remotely in conjunction with the surveillance system. As a result, ABP has reduced the need for operational staff at each location. With the Avigilon HD Surveillance System in place, ABP has invested in a scalable, future-proof surveillance solution that can expand to meet growing needs.
