A few months ago we installed a trial security system for St. Saviours Primary School in Birmingham as the school was unable to decide which cameras suited their purpose best. Like many schools St. Saviours were looking for additional protection from theft and vandalism at night whilst monitoring and protecting both staff and pupils during the day.
To help the school decide which system would be best we installed both a Sony SNC-DH160 HD network dome and a Mobotix M24 3 megapixel camera combined with Milestone Xprotect software. Both were fitted to overlook the car park and vehicle entrance. After a two week trial the school moved forward with a mixture of 10 Mobotix cameras as it was found that the high megapixel resolution with the 90 degree wide angle view provided more coverage of the grounds.
The Mobotix camera system has since been installed and commissioned.
The school have been impressed with the entire system. Shofi Alom, ICT Operations Manager at St Saviours, commented: “The cameras have been excellent and work flawlessly; the picture quality is superb and is so much easier to manage.”
With our video streaming service Streamdays 2 proving to be a successful tool for attracting more web visitors it has become a camera system with global demand.
The latest tourist authority to utilize our Streamdays software came from Vancouver, Washington. The City of Vancouver tourism board required an IP camera which would overlook the city and the Washington and Oregon border and a high quality streaming system that would allow visitors to their site a glimpse of what the city had to offer, along with a quality view of the iconic Mount Hood. This would also provide them with a vital marketing tool in attracting new visitors to the area.
We utilized an existing Axis Q6035-E which had been positioned on top of the City Hall, this outdoor dome camera offers protection in all weather conditions, 20x optical zoom and high definition footage at 25 frames per second; which alongside our Streamdays 2 service provides a clear and uninterrupted stream on the site.

Having provided camera security systems to most of Freightliner’s sites over the last 5 years, the Doncaster freight terminal needed an improved method of monitoring their in and out gates, used by trucks delivering and collecting goods containers for onward transport.
As on other Freightliner terminals, the brief was to implement a video monitoring system to capture container IDs and any visible damage. This was for improved operational management and dealing with damage claims.
Suitable Axis HD cameras were installed, capable of providing the level of image detail required to read container numbers and scanning for any damage. The cameras operate effectively during daylight hours as well as in darkness. To place the cameras in the most effective locations, we installed a wireless network for video transmission, which negated the need for digging up the road to lay cables.
The ongoing rollout of network video on Freightliner sites, now encompassing approximately 150 IP cameras, is evidence that the system delivers operational benefits and returns for companies within the freight transport sector.
