Case Study Background and Problem - Control Room Integration

Bournemouth Borough Council's CCTV system is made up of cameras around Bournemouth. Some of these are fixed, while others can zoom in, pan and tilt. All images go to their central CCTV Control Room.

Bournemouth Borough Council sought a redeployable CCTV system that would give them the flexibility to deploy cameras in hotspot locations that were affected by fly-tipping.

Many of these areas were out of the range of the Borough's fibre and COFDM networks, so only a wireless transmission system would suffice in these areas.

A major issue for Bournemouth Borough Council was ensuring that whatever solution they identified could integrate into their existing Synectics Synergy 3 video management software.

The Solution - WCCTV SDK 

WCCTV’s Software Development Kit (SDK) allowed Bournemouth Borough Council to integrate WCCTV’s 4G IR Speed Dome cameras into the Synectics Synergy 3 platform, allowing them to deploy the cameras to several crime hotspots.

WCCTV’s 4G IR Speed Dome is a Redeployable CCTV Camera specifically designed to deliver live and recorded high definition images via the latest mobile transmission.

As a truly all-in-one surveillance system, it combines an infrared PTZ camera, local recording capacity (up to 4TB) and wireless transmission technology into a single, lightweight unit.

The system is easy to install, easy to maintain, and moved to new locations to meet changing requirements.

Live and recorded footage can be accessed via mobile networks and Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing users to remotely view and download the video via smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC, or integration to an existing control room.

The Result

WCCTV SDK allows users to dial into any WCCTV camera via their viewing platform with no disruption to the Synectics System.

The 4G IR Speed Domes have been used for traffic monitoring by the Highways department at Bournemouth Borough Council. The cameras have helped monitor areas where there has been an increase in crime, Anti-Social Behaviour, or Fly tipping.

Results have shown a reduction in crime in these areas, especially for issues such as fly-tipping.

“As the WCCTV Domes are integrated into Synectics, we can monitor events in real-time and also review recordings. They have proved to be very useful for our Highways department for traffic flow monitoring and very effective in reducing crime in areas where we cannot have fibred or COFDM cameras.

We deployed a camera in one area, which was being regularly hit with fly-tipping. This has now completely stopped and saved the council an estimated £6,000 to £8,000 in labour and disposal costs.”
