Bosch has placed its MIC IP ultra 7100i cameras on approximately 10 40 metres high masts to suit the high-security requirements at Port of Paracas, Peru.
The port operators were reportedly looking for a video security solution to ensure reliable, high-resolution surveillance of an 11-hectare area, even when faced with the adverse weather conditions that are typical in the region, including stormy winds and extremely salty air.
César Rojas, Operations Manager at the Port of Paracas, said: “Our previous cameras from a different supplier were unable to meet our expectations.
“That represented a major security risk, as we weren’t technically equipped to reliably detect intruders and their potential criminal activities in sensitive areas involving the loading or unloading of goods at the port terminal and take the necessary action.”
The port’s management team has identified a solution that now meets all of their criteria due to MIC IP ultra 7100i cameras from Bosch with UHD (4K) resolution, 12x magnification, and optical image stabilisation (OIS). MIC cameras are pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) devices that move.
Rojas added: “Thanks to ultra-high definition, we can detect intruders and see what they’re up to in sharp detail for the first time.
“As a result of optical image stabilisation, this is even the case if strong winds rock the masts with the cameras attached at a height of 40 metres, or if we zoom up to 12x in the very salty air.”
According to Bosche-Presse Media, this AI-based tracking can determine the exact position of objects so that, in the event of an emergency, staff can get to precisely the right location faster.
