GeoVision Secures Lufthansa Technik Philippines

Lufthansa Technik PhilippinesInstalling security cameras can be easy, unless you have a particularly difficult situation or location. Lufthansa Technik Philippines, the large aircraft maintenance facility of Lufthansa, the German-based commercial aircraft enterprise, is one such situation. Installing a security camera system at this place is a challenge in every aspect of the installation including centralized management, bandwidth allocation and network control.

The hybrid DVR system from GeoVision addresses all of the challenges faced with installing at the Lufthansa Technik Philippines in a small package with its multiple compression and streaming capabilities. This GeoVision system hosts 128 newly purchased cameras as well as existing analog cameras and has megapixel cameras at key points. Each model of the CCTV system has to be able to function on its own, even if disconnected from the network, to work with the size and complexity of the LTP network.

Another thing is that, as the budget comes in two phases, the system must be scalable and modular in order for future camera expansion which could require an additional 300 cameras. According to A. Abalos, Security Manager for LTP, "The GeoVision system as designed and installed by ASIA Inc. is a powerful CCTV surveillance system that helps us protect our valuable personnel and assets. Its performance and scalability is a solution that is both cost effective and future proof."

Aside from meeting all the requirements for the project, GeoVision also offers centralized management via its CMS package. With the VSM (Vital Sign Monitor) application, both the camera and DVR status are displayed. This gives support personnel a detailed log for support analysis. With compressed video streams at the central monitoring station (CMS) application, the system is able to greatly reduce the load to the network while at the same time provide real-time data.

What many companies said couldn't be done, GeoVision managed to do, proving once again why they are among the leaders in the world of security and surveillance systems around the world.

GeoVision Central Monitoring Station

GeoVision V2A security camera system is only as good as the ability you have to monitor it. What good is catching a criminal or something else on a security camera if you can only see it from your house or from a recorded video AFTER it has already happened? What you need is the ability to remotely view your feed live from anywhere in the world, and GeoVision has just the solution for you.

GeoVision's Center V2 central monitoring station (CMS) can be viewed anywhere in the world as long as you have a viable internet connection. The V2 brings multiple GeoVision CCTV DVR Camera Server Systems together on a single, integrated interface. This gives the remote operator the ability to manage multiple GeoVision systems from a single point of control.

The fundamental function of the Center V2 is to attach video evidence with any and all alerts being sent to the Center V2. This gives the remote operator the ability to determine the nature of the alarm, dispatch help when needed and remotely record video evidence.

There are also a slew of great features that come along with the Central V2 including:

- Monitoring of up to 320 video channels
- Real-time audio monitoring
- Real-time I/O monitoring
- Two-way audio communication
- Remote PTZ control
- Remote I/O control
- Automatic live video pops up when subscriber site's motion detection or an alarm occurs
- Twin-view support allows video and event list to be displayed on two different display screens
- Supports 15, 24, 25 and 36 screen divisions per display

As far as event features go, the Central V2 displays seven categories of event messages including motion events, alarm events, subscriber login/logout history, connection status and a lot more. The "Bookmark" feature allows remote operators to highlight important events. Event list filters also help aid event searches.

Recording features allow you to auto record video events to a local hard disk, pre-alarm and post-alarm recording, receive video attachment along with each event and also gives you a hard disk drive recycle feature which allows non-stop recording.

With a duspatch server you can manage up to 500 Center V2 servers. You are also capable of providing services for up to 10,000 subscribers. Rounding it out is auto connection lost recovery and subscriber load balancing which distributes subscriber requests across a group of Center V2 Servers.
