Chinese oil drilling equipment provider shows faith in IP video

Baoji Oilfield Machinery, a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation has deployed an IP-based video surveillance system to improve management efficiency and strengthen security. Baoji is one of the world's largest land-based oil rig and serial mud pump R&D and manufacturing base. Based on the client's needs, Axis Communications and local partner NetPosa, a digital video product manufacturer, designed a system that incorporates 143 Axis HD 720P domes and NetPosa's server.

Taking into consideration the production plant's expensive machinery and equipment, plant personnel, and potential risks, the front-end cameras had to be effective and stable enough to provide HD images for 24/7 surveillance. In addition, the cameras had to handle difficult lighting conditions, high temperatures and other environmental issues.

To meet these demands, outdoor PTZ domes and fixed HD domes were installed for surveillance and real-time recording. The cameras possess PoE capability, which helped the plant save 70 percent wiring costs by eliminating new cable and wiring installments. Within the plant's existing local area network, a back-end surveillance management system was installed. NetPosa's server manages the digital video data from the cameras, the back-end storage, video forwarding and wall equipment, as well as recording and storage. The centralized platform allows the client's computer to oversee the entire system with a single management account.

The entire system employs a modular management system, enabling compatibility of the new infrastructure with existing surveillance system. At the same time, the client's monitoring needs are met through the employment of various modules, including digital map, real-time surveillance, media services, equipment inspection and alarm linkage. The implementation of open architecture has laid the foundation for future expansion, minimizing development duplication, and reducing unnecessary wastage of resources and time.
