Case Study Background
Ealing Council operates a public safety CCTV scheme in partnership with the Metropolitan Police.
There is a 24-hour control room, which monitors and records images from CCTV systems in streets, off-street car parks and housing estates in the borough.

The system harnesses the wireless transmission (4G/3G/Wi-Fi), local recording (up to 4TB) and 360° PTZ field of vision of the WCCTV Speed Dome range to provide a complete situational overview. Simultaneously, the ANPR camera delivers crystal-clear images of number plates in all weather and lighting conditions.
Tyco's Mosiac platform offers the Council central video surveillance control platform that connects to their range of WCCTV
Anti-social behaviour is not easily resolved. However, the Ealing Council's Safer Communities team's implementation of WCCTV's systems has helped ease the burden upon victims and witnesses of such activities.
The combined use of WCCTV 4G IR Speed Dome + ANPR, in conjunction with Tyco's Mosiac platform, provides the Council with 1080p video, suitable for criminal prosecutions, as well as a visual deterrent to help prevent antisocial behaviour throughout the borough.
