IP Video Providing Site-Wide Surveillance At Mexico Automotive Plant
IndigoVision’s complete IP video solution is providing site-wide surveillance for Faurecia’s new automotive plant in Mexico. Located in a high-technology industrial park in San Luis Potosí, the new plant manufactures seats and other automotive components for many of the world’s top car makers. The Faurecia Group has 190 plants in 28 countries around the globe and employs 60,000 people.
The IP system was designed and installed by IndigoVision’s local partner Multielectron SA de CV and consists of both PTZ dome and fixed cameras covering the exterior of the plant as well the general manufacturing areas inside.
“Following analysis of similar IP video systems we chose IndigoVision’s solution because of its superior performance and video quality,” said Arturo Gutiérrez, Faurecia’s HSE coordinator. “To provide the local authorities and police with high-quality evidential video exported from the system following an incident was another important requirement.”
CCTV monitoring workstations running ‘Control Center’, IndigoVision’s IP video and alarm management software, are used throughout the plant to view live and recorded video from the cameras.
The distributed nature of IndigoVision’s IP Video system means that any system component can be located anywhere on the network. The system is thus very scalable, allowing additional cameras or workstations to be easily and cost-effectively added in the future, unlike traditional analog CCTV systems. ‘
Control Center’ is also license-free enabling workstations to be deployed for no more than a cost of an entry-level PC. This flexibility has allowed Faurecia to install CCTV workstations not only for the security team in the main control room but also for the Plant Manager, HR department and the maintenance team.
The video is recorded continuously at 4SIF, 30fs for 15 days using an IndigoVision Windows NVR server with 1.5 Terabytes of storage and NAS backup, all located in the control room. With the correct access permissions any ‘Control Center’ workstation in the plant can view and analyze recorded video from the NVR.
