Pelco Endura Case Studies
The 165,000 square-foot Black Oak Casino in Northern California needed a high quality video security solution that would not only satisfy casino security needs, but also meet strict requirements from multiple gaming agencies and associations for image quality and retention. They required high quality images at full frame rate, and they sought a digital extension to their analogue matrix, as well as a solution that will scale with their future needs.
Billings Clinic decided on an Endura solution. Mitch Goplen, Director of Facility Services explains, “Our network was an ideal fit for an Endura installation. We knew Pelco would be an outstanding partner, along with support from our integrator and our own network team.” This installation links 60 cameras, including five new Spectra domes, to two security control centres, where operators can see any camera on any monitor. New Endura KBD5000s have been added to the control centres. All storage is centred in a large network closet, along with the system manager and Storage Expansion Boxes.
With Endura, North Dakota found a non-centralized system able to deliver what they needed. More than 20 Pelco cameras were added to the 19 existing cameras, expanding the coverage to monitor the exterior grounds and interior of the buildings and elevators. Other components of the complete Endura system include an Endura Workstation, System Manager, Video Encoders, Video Decoders and Network Video Recorder along with a Storage Expansion Box.
Endura, with its distributed intelligence and system management capabilities, can be configured to grant varying levels of access to a wide array of users at BC Place. A complete Endura system – including a WS5050 Endura Workstation, VCD5000 Video Control Display, NVR5000 Network Video Recorder, NET5301T Encoders and five new Spectra III dome positioning systems, integrated with the stadium’s existing 40 cameras – has delivered the video security solution BC Place demanded.
McCarran selected and Endura system to run on their expansive network. Supporting this very large installation are 14 Endura “A Blocks” – full racks each with a workstation, SEB5100 storage expansion boxes and multiple decoders – housed in a dozen network closets around the airport. From McCarran’s central control station, a variety of security and other personnel keep their eyes on dozens of monitors and displays, viewing all cameras installed throughout the airport. The Endura System Manager serves up the appropriate access privileges for all the different user groups. Because Endura is distributed, these users are not crammed into the control centre. They can monitor their specific areas of responsibility anywhere there is a network connection.
