CCTV Center was key in providing the networked surveillance system installed by Chubb Fire and Security in the new Welsh Assembly Government building at Llandudno Junction in north Wales. The building worth of more than US$ 35 million is amongst the greenest public buildings in Wales. It accommodates more than 500 civil servants, a range of support agencies, including CAFCASS, and will become a major public venue. The complete site includes a gate house, car parks, public transport shelters and landscaped garden areas.
“CCTV Center provided system design and specification, all the Panasonic equipment we used, as well as off-site preconfiguration of the cameras, switches and recorders,” said John Jones, Regional GM, Chubb Fire and Security.
The surveillance system comprises 54 Panasonic cameras, including 30 internal PTZ domes with the remainder protecting the building perimeter and car park. The control room system is rack mounted with four-, 16-channel, Panasonic DVR's, a 64-channel Panasonic switching matrix and a desk-mounted control unit for managing the entire site. The system will store and process a massive 17Tb of data with off-site backup. Operators view a 42” plasma screen, a desk monitor, a computer-based down load facility and a touch screen with interactive site map.
The control room and gate house are networked with external access for remote monitoring and the surveillance system is integrated with the intruder alarm, fire, door entry and baggage checking systems.
