Eurotunnel (UK)

Integrated Security Design

Objective: Integrated security with Video Analytics in Folkestone, Kent

EuroTunnel – the gate way to Europe and a demanding and diverse environment for surveillance and security. A large and complex site that required a significant level of security.

Requirements

Eurotunnel wanted to integrate a number of systems including, CCTV surveillancevideo analytics, perimeter control and high resolution image capture, storage and retrieval. Integrated together these individual security systems combine to provide a cohesive and secure security solution working in complete synergy.

The ClearView Solution

ClearView designed, installed and commissioned an integrated security system that meets this demanding operational requirement. The working system has been designed to allow for future expansion or enhancement. In addition to this solution, ClearView also installed IP network video recorders (NVR’s) at Euro Tunnel, France.

IP CCTV System Solution

Over 300 IP CCTV cameras, many with “alarm” activation triggered from sensors on security fencing working in conjunction with intelligent video analytics. Existing analogue camera signals were digitised to provide a “dual stream” output – one for recording and one for viewing. High resolution 4 CIF images are displayed on all viewing monitors. Frame rates can be set for 2 ips for recording and 25 ips (real-time) for viewing.

Video Analytics Software Solution

IVMD technology (video analytics software) automatically identifies and tracks intruders, threats and incidents whilst maintaining a dramatically low false alarm rate. IVMD technology provides superior non-flat detection and sees intruders in 3D-scape and at distances using high-end algorithms that automatically identify intrusions and threats.

Security Fencing (PIDS) Solution

Perimeter intrusion detection systems transmit electric pulses along a sensor line attached to the fence. When an intrusion attempt is detected it creates an alarm signal that can alert the main control room and automatically focus a camera to the point of detection.

Video Storage Functionality Solution

For maximum system resilience a RAID5 CCTV recording and storage solution was required. This ensures that if a single hard disc were to fail single the redundancy of the system ensures that recorded data is protected.

“ClearView has provided a user interface which is very intuitive, this has meant the operators quickly and easily adopted the new system. The control centre software meets the new regulations and a networked system allows additional cameras to be added at any point.” Sylvain Pamart – Chief Project Manager, EuroTunnel
