Security Systems Technology implements IP CCTV system at Brampton Manor art college
Friday, 27 November 2009 00:00

Situated in East Ham, Brampton Manor has 1,600 students and has recently been awarded specialist status as an art college. Security Systems Technology (SST) have designed and implemented a major IP CCTV system for Brampton Manor School in east London. The school now has a 114-camera configuration that is integrated with pre-existing IT infrastructure and allows multi-user viewing by authorised personnel right across the campus.

SST have installed a mix of cameras, predominantly Power over Ethernet IP-addressable models, and are now clarifying positions for further vandal-resistant dome units in an additional wing and wireless PTZ domes for the newly-landscaped grounds. A new sports hall has been built and the former building transformed into drama facilities, a development that reflects Brampton Manor’s position as a specialist performing arts school.

The ability of SST’s consultants to integrate technologies has seen the introduction of IP internal dome cameras from Axis combined with use of Axis encoder blades which are allowing legacy analogue models to produce IP feeds and so co-exist on the network. This has meant that original units which were still fit for purpose have been retained, so making optimum use of budget.

IT and facilities management staff have been impressed by the ease with which the cameras can be connected to the school’s computer network and the empowering effect of multi-user access. There is full wireless telemetry via an Axis joystick in the security office and also the ability to use virtual joysticks through Xprotect Enterprise server software provided by Milestone Systems. Video is transmitted through the school’s fibre network although over 10,000 metres of new Cat5 cable was run, and SST have proved adept at avoiding data bottlenecks.

Chetan Vasudev of SST said: “The large number of cameras necessitated complex bandwidth calculations. By running our feeds in parallel with the existing main network via fibre, we not only produced a ‘green’ solution but also minimised disruption to the school’s operation.”

In the case of camera installations at new, external positions, SST have used wireless technology from Netgear. Due to the distance involved and the high costs of running cables underground, the decision was taken to use wireless transmission to send both live video and telemetry back to the main school premises. All of the cameras are controlled by Milestone software and SST have become Milestone-certified installers.
