CCTV Video Distribution

The Mega-Guard CCTV Video Distribution system allows the crew to view camera images on board the vessel on Mega-Guard Operator Workstations

Features

The Mega-Guard CCTV Video Distribution system allows the crew to view camera images on board the vessel on Mega-Guard Operator Workstations. Camera images can be integrated into mimic diagrams of the Operator Workstations.

High Definition camera's, with a minimum resolution of 2 mega-pixels, are applied in order to provide sharp and crystal clear images.

Cameras can be divided in two main shapes: IP dome camera with integrated pan, tilt and zoom function and IP bullet camera with integrated zoom function. All cameras have an Ethernet connection and support the Power over Ethernet protocol in order to minimize wiring.

Industry leading camera visualization software is applied (Milestone) which is very easy to operate. A CCTV Marine PC with Milestone server software communicates with all cameras and provides as well storage facilities on the built-in hard drive.

The standard Mega-Guard Operator Workstations are extended with CCTV client software and communicate with the CCTV Marine PC for display and playback of camera images.


Mega-Guard Operator Workstation

The Mega-Guard Operator Workstations, as installed on the vessel for visualization and remote operation of ship's plant, are extended with Milestone client images. Camera viewing is implemented either through a separate window or through an integration of the camera image into a graphic mimic page.

Multiple cameras can be viewed in one window and stored camera images can easily be played back.


CCTV Marine PC

The rugged CCTV Marine PC is equipped with the Windows 7 operating system and includes the Milestone server software. The user friendly Milestone server software communicates with the cameras and the camera images are stored on the built-in hard drive.

This powerful Marine PC has enough capacity to store images of up to 64 High Definition cameras.


IP dome cameras with PTZ

The IP dome cameras have a Pan, Tilt and Zoom function so the crew can e.g. adjust the viewing area and zoom-in through the Mega-Guard Operator Workstation. The compact cameras can be installed inside the ceiling, on the ceiling and on the wall. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

A built-in automatic heater prevents that the camera lens gets condensation in high humidity and low temperature applications. A built-in automatic fan is turned on in case of high outside temperature.

The IP Ethernet communication is standardized using the Onvif protocol and Power over Ethernet is supported as well.


IP bullet cameras with Zoom

The IP bullet cameras are pointing to a fixed area and with the Zoom function the crew can look into more detail by zooming in through the Mega-Guard Operator Workstation. The compact cameras can be installed on the ceiling and on the wall. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

A built-in automatic heater prevents that the camera lens gets condensation in high humidity and low temperature applications. A built-in automatic fan is turned on in case of high outside temperature.

In addition, a wiper and washer function can be activated from the Mega-Guard Operator Workstations in order to clean the camera glass window. Night vision is supported by infrared LED's which are automatically turned on in low light conditions.

The IP Ethernet communication is standardized using the Onvif protocol and Power over Ethernet is supported as well.


PoE Ethernet Switch

Cameras are connected to a Power over Ethernet switch. This means that only a single Ethernet cable has to be installed and connected to the camera. The power of the camera is transferred on the same Ethernet cable. Communication to the CCTV Marine PC (server) and the Mega-Guard Operator Workstations (clients) takes place through the PoE Ethernet switch via a separate Ethernet connection port.
