Pelco™ by Schneider Electric demonstrated how its advanced solutions and services address new threats and challenges facing cities at the Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX) in London on 6-7 March 2018.
Pelco also participated in the SCTX CNI & Business Resilience Programme. Samantha Bamford, Consultant Relations Manager for Pelco by Schneider Electric, led the “Cyber Security and GDPR for Video Surveillance” session.
This session focused on how to protect facilities and data in the era of meltdowns, spectres, and stricter data protection laws.
“Today’s complex security challenges require data-driven surveillance that delivers actionable insights to operators and law enforcement, using secure methods and networks,” said Tony Burns, Regional Sales Director, Pelco by Schneider Electric. “Pelco’s comprehensive solutions provide officials with the pertinent, real-time information they need to effectively identify threats and confront them before they can occur.”
Leveraging Data-Driven Solutions to Create Smart, Safe Cities
Government entities and decision-makers face a myriad of surveillance challenges, including: delayed access to camera footage, limited views of criminal activity or traffic accidents, poor visibility due to weather conditions or potential camera corrosion, and the inability to effectively connect data across agencies for accurate response.
Pelco’s city surveillance solutions help protect cities against threats by providing a proactive approach to security and safety.
Pelco’s solutions feature enhanced object identification, wide area surveillance of open areas, and meet the highest standards for control in extreme environments. These enhanced capabilities provide advanced video image clarity and improved situational awareness.
With more intelligent data, real-time crime centers and city facilities have the ability to proactively reduce crime and increase effective response, investigations and convictions.
Moreover, Pelco’s systems approach to integrating video, analytics, and event management provides unified situational and operational effectiveness to create smart, safe cities.
Using Surveillance to Improve Traffic and Protect Motorists
Keeping city traffic moving gives residents peace of mind that they can get to their desired location safely and with ease.
However, many cities face setbacks to effective traffic monitoring, such as: poor camera positioning, limited views of intersections and roadways due to camera inavailability or weather conditions, and lack of speed analysis to identify traffic flow changes.
Pelco’s enhanced low-light and weather-resistant technology enables traffic operations centers to aid motorists and reduce traffic congestion, regardless of conditions or time of day.
Innovative Security & Surveillance Solutions
Pelco demonstrated its city surveillance and traffic monitoring solutions in Stand J50 at SCTX along with solutions for other applications areas including oil & gas, airports and hospitality.
As part of their ongoing commitment to innovation, Pelco highlighted recent enhancements to their video management system (VMS) and broad selection of IP cameras, including the Sarix and Esprit cameras.
Attendees could also view new, advanced features for VideoXpert™ including multi-server access that allows users to view streams and connect to remote boxes simultaneously, more effective streaming of HD video to provide operators better visibility and more accurate monitoring, as well as added functionality through increased integration with third-party applications.
