Infinova multiple models of network and analog cameras, along with its matrix switchers are deployed at a major R&D complex, the Shanghui City Industrial Building, in the Baoshan District of Shanghai. Besides the R&D facilities above ground, there are two floors underground incorporating the parking lot, bicycle garage, civil air defense and electro-mechanical equipment room, among others. The complex covers more than 750,000 square feet.
"This installation shows how Infinova is able to help integrators bring together multiple network and analog camera models into a coexistent solution to ensure goals for each location requirement are met affordably,” said Mark Wilson, Infinova Marketing VP. “When required, one operator, leveraging an Infinova large matrix switcher with 4096 channels of video input and 512 channels of video output, can control the entire system.”
Depending on the application and location, multiple models of Infinova cameras are located at the entrance and exit gates on the ground floor, garage entrance and exit, underground parking lot, elevator cars, and main passageways on each floor. Based on the security goal for the locale, the complex uses Infinova network PTZ dome cameras, fixed cameras and fixed minidome cameras.
The Infinova TCP/IP network video switchers feature preconfiguration to assure the highest level of reliability plus its open architecture fosters easy installation, operation and expansion. Utilizing microprocessor technology, the switches can provide automated electronic surveillance or allow a single user to control an entire surveillance system of up to 4096 video inputs by 512 video outputs.
For display, the system incorporates 38 sets of 21-inch monitors. For storage, there are 26 sets of 16-CH DVRs. The system can store 15 days of images, approximately 3,900GB on four 1,000GB hard disks.
