Integrated IP video for city car parks in Glasgow

Visimetrics (UK) : 02 September, 2009  (Application Story)
Glasgow City Council has adopted integrated IP CCTV from Visimetrics for performing surveillance and control functions in the city multi-storey car parks
Integrated IP video for city car parks in Glasgow
City Parking (Glasgow), the LLP parking operation of Glasgow City Council, has adopted a fully integrated IP based CCTV solution from Visimetrics for the control, management and recording of CCTV images throughout the city's multi-storey car parks.

The CCTV system upgrade was part of a major refurbishment programme following the transfer of Glasgow City Council's off-street parking operations to the newly created LLP. The programme's aim was to improve the efficiency, operation and capability of parking facilities across the city. Central to this aim was bringing the control and operation of all the city council's parking facilities within one location. With the network capability already in place at head office the Control Room and centralised equipment for parking, intercom, CCTV and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) were located there.

The integrated IP CCTV solution was specifically developed by Visimetrics to the meet the operational requirements of City Parking (Glasgow). The integrated solution provides complete automation of camera control and recording profiles based on the activation of intercom, pay station or barrier control help points. An intercom call for assistance to the central Control Room directs an associated camera towards the help point, barrier or pay station. The recording profile for the camera is simultaneously increased for the duration of the intercom activity ensuring the highest possible quality of video and audio content is recorded for incident review and training purposes.

The integrated solution automatically presents operators with high quality, real-time video upon intercom activation removing the time delays associated with finding and selecting the relevant camera. Customer service and staff efficiencies are maximised with this automation allowing staff to focus solely on the issue at hand.

Visimetrics "Control" management application provides control room operators with direct access to live and recorded images from any of the 250 cameras located within any of the council's car parks. Access via the IP network to each of the car park's distributed recordings systems provides the flexibility of centralised access while minimising bandwidth usage on the council's corporate network to on-demand periods of access only.

City Parking's Wayne Myrden commented, "A key aspect in centralising the management of our parking operation was the integration and control of our city wide CCTV system. The design, implementation and on-going support from Visimetrics has been paramount in achieving this. They have taken our requirements and provided a robust, integrated solution across all major car park's within the city.'
