West Virginia County Adds MOBOTIX Technology To Surveillance Network
MOBOTIX recently announced an extensive installation agreement with Berkeley County, W. Va., in which the company will be integrating a highly advanced surveillance infrastructure across multiple municipal buildings and complexes.
Adding more than 25 Hemispheric Q24 cameras (featuring 360 degree all-around views and panorama functionality) and MonoDome D24 cameras (featuring integrated multiple-window motion detection and flexible mounting for indoor and outdoor) to its existing analog network, Berkeley County security and technology administrators have enabled best-in-class, high-resolution security through a cost-effective, plug-and-play network upgrade. Global Surveillance Inc. was the reseller working with municipal officials on system design and vendor selection.
“The entire instillation process has been effortless from design to implementation to activation,” said Gary Wine, director of information technology for Berkeley County. “With MOBOTIX’s incredible hemispheric camera technology, the number of devices needed on-site has dropped significantly from previous levels -- a testament to the precision and accuracy of image detail, the wide-angle images produced, and the expansive high-resolution storage capabilities. This hardware reduction and the associated software and storage savings give Berkeley County the best quality at the best price -- a critical need for public and government organizations in this economic climate.”
MOBOTIX provides hemispheric video surveillance through its decentralized concept -- an in-camera technology construct that alleviates bandwidth constraints and allows full-spectrum high-resolution video across an IP network. The decentralized MOBOTIX concept employs a high-speed computer and internal flash memory card built into every camera, driving significant cost savings to the end user.
MOBOTIX cameras will be installed at the Berkeley County historical courthouse, Emergency Communications Center, County Office Complex and Judicial Center. All cameras come equipped with the latest versions of the versatile MxControlCenter software.
