Bangkok relying on Mirasys for CitySafe
Thailand’s Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is in the second phase of its CitySafe project deploying Mirasys technology, installing 8,000 cameras throughout the city managed through the Mirasys Carbon Video Monitoring System (VMS).
Offering state-of-the-art intelligence in a highly scalable solution, this surveillance infrastructure will allow the local police to access CCTV footage from the city’s 50 districts, both on-site and remotely, via a central control room. Individual police stations are also being equipped with a Mirasys workstation for monitoring purposes.
Phase one of the project saw 3,000 cameras installed throughout Bangkok. In its final stage, the number of cameras supported by the Mirasys Carbon VMS will rise to 20,000.
Mirasys’ Carbon VMS platform has allowed the Bangkok authorities to take a targeted approach to CCTV monitoring by categorising and grouping footage from each camera in line with specific surveillance requirements, ranging from traffic and flood monitoring and control to crime prevention.
The open, non-proprietary functionality of Mirasys’ Carbon VMS has enabled high-definition IP and analogue cameras from 10 different manufacturers to be used. Advanced algorithms filter out non-relevant feeds and trigger real-time response alarms to critical incidents.
Mirasys is one of the world’s leading providers of open platform digital CCTV and video surveillance solutions; and its innovative security solutions manage over 500,000 cameras around the world today.
