Real-time video surveillance from SHIPs​

Even if a ship has CCTV cameras to provide information to the crew and keep a record of events on board, there can be times when real-time video is what is needed.

If the full picture is known when an incident occurs mid-voyage, decisions can be taken quickly and with confidence.

Obtaining usable video content from vessels at sea is problematic. Communications are often limited and conventional video codecs are not designed for transmission over low bandwidth or constrained networks.

Typically image break-up or delay renders video feeds unusable. 

Our EdgeVis Live technology offers real-time video streaming with none of these issues.

It was specifically developed to overcome the problems of streaming over congested and low-bandwidth, wireless networks, and will reliably deliver usable and continuous video and audio even over GPRS/2G/Satellite at bandwidths as low as 9Kbps.

Our unique technology uses around 60% less bandwidth than standard video transmission systems so there are significant savings in data too, making video feeds from vessels at sea cost effective as well as viable.

EdgeVis Live requires no infrastructure and can be set up in minutes, while EdgeVis Body Worn is as mobile as the staff relaying images from their uniforms.

The footage can also be integrated into existing video management systems, while secure local recording allows accurate evidence of events to be kept.

Simultaneous remote access of the live feed can also be relayed to a control room and via mobile devices to crews on other vessels.

Unparalleled real-time streaming from vessels enhances safety and provides situational awareness in times of emergency.

Crane safety cameras for docks

Confined spaces and poor weather conditions can compromise a crane operator's direct line of sight.

This reduces operational effectiveness and raises safety concerns.

EdgeVis Crane, our unique wireless transmission technology, delivers live video from below a crane hook to an operator, hugely improving communication.

By looking at an HD monitor in the cab, the operator can now see the crane load, signaller and surroundings, dramatically reducing the potential for accidents in a dock.

Blind lifts are eliminated, unbalanced loads can be identified earlier, while multi-level lifts become easier and faster, leading to greater productivity.

There is also the option to add further cameras to a system to provide extra views from a dock that can be streamed anywhere required.

Our EdgeVis technology was specifically developed to overcome the problems of streaming over low bandwidth wireless networks, and will reliably deliver real-time video and audio even over GPRS/2G/Satellite connections at bandwidths as low as 9kbps.

There are significant savings in data too because our unique technology uses around 60% less bandwidth than other standards-based systems.​

Video can also be relayed in real-time to supervisors with a laptop or phone, whether they are in the dock or elsewhere.

Even over constrained networks, our innovative technology offers the option to zoom in and retrieve high-resolution images.

Footage can be archived to settle disputes or kept for training purposes.

As well as enhancing operational effectiveness, EdgeVis Crane can also be integrated with a range of onboard systems as such as SMIE anti-collision, setting new standards in safety.

Site and perimeter security solutions

Seaports sometimes have perimeters where the installation of fixed CCTV is simply not viable.

But Digital Barriers’ highly adaptable, visually intelligent, surveillance technology offers a cost-effective solution to guarding against trespassing, vandalism and theft.

We can provide a targeted mobile security system that will alert security staff and allow them to see live wireless video of any intrusion.   

SmartVis, our world-class video analytics technology, will detect when a person is present but ignore nuisance alarms caused by adverse weather, animals, camera movement, shadows or variable lighting.

It is certified by the UK Government’s i-LIDS® scheme as an approved primary detection system for perimeter security.

SmartVis-linked cameras can be moved around easily to target any gaps in existing security or monitor known trouble spots.

The system can also be hosted in the cloud, avoiding the need for costly investment in servers and maintenance.

EdgeVis Shield, our integrated surveillance platform solution, can combine all this technology with existing infrastructure and covert ground sensors. These sensors can be moved around in targeted areas to provide fast and reliable alerts.

Control rooms and tactical response units receive an immediate view of alarm events – including access to real-time video from fixed cameras as well as staff's EdgeVis Body Worn cameras.

Our EdgeVis technology was specifically developed to overcome the problems of streaming video over low bandwidth wireless networks. It will reliably deliver real-time video and audio even over GPRS/2G/Satellite connections at bandwidths as low as 9kbps.

There are significant savings in data too because our unique technology uses around 60% less bandwidth than other standards-based systems.

Even over constrained networks, our innovative technology offers the option to zoom in and retrieve high-resolution images.

Digital Barriers' technology can target specific areas, providing a more accurate interpretation of suspicious activity as well as offering remote live viewing and camera control for visual confirmation of intrusions and an intelligent response.
