Mirasys, a provider of open platform digital video surveillance solutions, was selected as the surveillance software provider for the City of Bangkok. As Bangkok renews its city-wide surveillance program, it sought a system that could integrate different types of hardware and cameras, and that would remain flexible over the coming years. Mirasys was chosen as the software provider due to its seamless integration capabilities, reliability and long-term adaptability.
The Mirasys software, which will initially support more than 3,000 network cameras in Bangkok, allows digital images to be recorded and monitored both locally and centrally. The system will also be extended with intelligence features to allow effective long-term use of the system. Bangkok's existing analog cameras will be seamlessly integrated within the Mirasys solution, which provides the option of introducing very high resolution cameras in the future.
M.R. Sukhumbhand Paripatra, Governor of Bangkok, said: “We want to take additional measures to maintain the public safety of the entire city. The key to success will be the collaboration between public and private sector such as hotels, shopping malls, gas stations, convenience stores and movie theaters. With this particular procurement we want to accelerate the process and believe that there will more than 20,000 cameras to cover the most important areas within next four years.”
“Mirasys provides a highly scalable software solution for those who need a cost effective user-friendly system that fits with the needs of their organizations — be those big or small. Increasingly, customers are finding that our systems offer this flexibility while facilitating the move towards IP cameras and fully digital systems as is the case in Asia. We are honored to have been selected to protect the City of Bangkok,” said Jukka Riivari, CEO at Mirasys.
Boonya Tantipanichaphan, Executive Director of Genius Traffic System, a subsidiary of Forth Corporation Public, said: “This project demonstrates how our policy of providing the best solution to suit the customer's requirements works. Our team recommended Mirasys products for the project and we've been extremely happy with the performance and support that we've come to expect from Mirasys in the pilot phase.”
“For Mirasys in Asia, this is obviously a breakthrough,” said MD Noppadol Sukhmol, Mirasys Thailand. “We are excited to work with the City of Bangkok and its prime contractors as we develop the surveillance program further.”
