To update the old video surveillance system of the Pennsylvania Turnpike have been installed 80 Cameras Bosch Autodome IP starlight 7000i on posts 15 To 24 Meters.
Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) manages and responds to traffic in the road system 552 miles that, generally, attends to 500.000 customers every day. Its mission is to provide a safe and reliable toll road system that supports national mobility and trade.. to ensure this security has renewed its video surveillance system with cameras Bosch Autodome IP.
As part of its modernization efforts, PTC wanted to replace all analog video cameras on the roads, used to control traffic flow and conditions along the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
Faced with the need for a technological partner, selected the provider of traffic management and control solutions Signal Servic, who was in charge of updating the system and, to do that, opted for Bosch Autodome IP cameras.
These are designed for intelligent transport system applications. Signal Service worked with PTC's networking consultant to ensure that Autodome IP cameras met the strict data security and compliance requirements of the NDAA.
After the completion of the project they have been installed 80 Cameras Autodome IP starlight 7000i on poles of 15 To 24 Meters, along the Pennsylvania Highway. Cameras help PTC traffic operations center employees fulfill their mission of identifying incidents on the roads, disseminate information to the public and send the appropriate resources to provide a quick response to customers who need it.
New HD Cameras Provide PTC Traffic Operations Center with Higher Quality Images, especially at night. The development of additional video analytics features will be important as the collaboration of both companies progresses.. These teams also hold the ranking NEMA TS2 for transport environments and offer H.265 compression to reduce bandwidth consumption.
Upgrading infrastructure to IP has allowed PTC to eliminate the need for video encoders and use PoE midspan injectors, which resulted in a reduction in maintenance requirements and system costs. Signal Service has also replaced camera descent technology from MG Squared (MG2) to install the latest descent devices Ethernet MG2 CAT6a.
“The project was completed on time and on budget”, Says Stephen Dowdall, Director of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) of Signal Service. “Through accurate planning and working closely with the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, we finished the project on time despite the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic”.
IP cameras integrate with video management software, recently updated, Genetec Security Center, being compatible with advanced features of these equipment such as Intelligent Video Analytics.
