Security on railway stations, platforms and inside trams, metros, commuter trains and long-distance trains is becoming an important issue in our daily life. As the development of modern video surveillance systems and cameras is progressing very fast, it is essential to decide for a solution which can easily be adapted to new technologies without the need of huge investments in the future.
Video security solutions today are normally IP (Ethernet) based, distributed and part of a centrally managed system, which allows an unlimited integration of different subsystems under the same umbrella. It is an ideal solution for projects where everything is built from scratch, while it also allows cost-efficient upgrades to existing systems and modernization projects where the end customer wishes to use the old infrastructure as much as possible.
Therefore, the system is future proof and it can be scaled from a relatively small system on-board of railway vehicles into the system with tens of thousands surveillance cameras and other components on stations and platforms. The scalability of the system is transparent to the underlying legacy systems, regardless whether these are analogue or IP based.
