Moreton Bay goes wireless for video surveillance


Moreton Bay Regional Council is augmenting its existing surveillance camera system with HD cameras linked by a wireless mesh network.

Link Security Group has been contracted by Queensland's Moreton Bay Regional Council to deploy what is said to be the largest municipal wireless video surveillance network in Australia.

Link will use Firetide's wireless mesh equipment to cover a 130 square kilometre area with 42 nodes. The network will carry HD video from nearly 50 outdoor cameras from Axis.

The Milestone XProtect video management software will be used to monitor the video feeds. The software can potentially be used to integrate Moreton Bay's existing analog CCTV cameras.

"Firetide represents the very best in cutting-edge wireless technology, with its wireless infrastructure mesh optimised for the transmission of surveillance video," said Alex Baulden, senior network engineer at Link.

"The security and reliability of communications were critical, and performance we've seen in the field is impressive," he added.

Wai King Wong, country manager ANZ at Axis Communications said "Where image quality is the key consideration it is important to have full frame rate video streaming so that activities in a scene and fast-moving objects can be easily seen and captured."

"Our HDTV cameras are compliant with the SMPTE standards in resolution, frame rate, colour fidelity and aspect ratio to ensure that a rich viewing experience with excellent image detail is achieved," he added.
