Solution Overview 

Solution Networking

Valletta Campus, Malta

The Valletta Campus, popularly known also as the 'Old University Building' in Valletta, was constructed to serve as a Jesuit College, the first stone laid in 1595. It has a turbulent history. In the decades after completion, it suffered explosion, earthquake, was used for different purposes. Nowadays it houses two departments of the University of Malta, the Conference Unit and the International Collaborative Program.

Teaching Area

 

Teaching area is the core of a campus because a large number of students and teachers gather here, including teaching buildings, libraries, laboratories, etc. There are many buildings in this area, so indoor video surveillance equipment needs to be deployed here to protect students and teachers from harm.

Analog Access

  • Hybrid NVR provides two access modes: analog and network

  • Suitable for elevator analog cameras and other analog cameras

Smart IR

  • Smart IR function can balance the luminance level between distant and nearby objects

  • Provide consistent clear image of moving objects under low light scenes

Smart IR ON

Smart IR OFF

PIR Alarm

  • With PIR function integrated inside, UNV cameras are suitable to monitor important areas at night

  • Built-in white light, capture colored image when strangers intruding

360° Panoramic

  • 4K fisheye panoramic image, de-warping modes supported

  • Multiple mounting modes are available, including ceiling, wall and desktop

 

Living Area

 

Living area is the most complex place in campus, generally divided into dormitories, playgrounds and so on. Students spend most of their time in the living area. To keep students safe, cameras installed here should effectively and efficiently provide clear images in different places.

Dormitory

WDR (Wide Dynamic Range)

  • Sony STARVIS sensor with UNV self-developed ISP processing technology

  • Deliver clear and visible images in high-contrast lighting scenes

Smart IR ON

Smart IR OFF

Corridor Mode

  • Effectively reduce invalid monitoring regions

  • More details in the corridor monitoring area

Playground

Super Starlight

  • F1.2 aperture lens and Sony STARVIS image sensor

  • Produce colorful video images under ultra-low light conditions (0.0005Lux) without losing details

Super Starlight

Common Starlight

 

Low-blur

  • UNV camera monitors both static and moving objects clearly with StarView technology

  • Low-blur mode can greatly reduce image blur, especially in evening

Common Camera

Low-blur Camera

Internal Road

 

Car accidents may happen on the roads inside the campus because there are so many cars and students on the road. In order to record video on the road as evidence after an accident, cameras must produce clear image at during day and night.

 

Gate & Parking Lot

 

Campus gates and parking lots, with a large number of vehicles or people entering and leaving every day, are the most important area of the CCTV system because the cameras here must record every object inside and outside the campus.

HLC

  • UNV network cameras support strong light suppression which can produce clear license plate image

  • Even if the object is in front of the vehicle at night, it would not be blocked by strong light

HLC  OFF

HLC ON

 

Perimeter Protection

 

Perimeter is the first defense line between campus and the outside, which can protect the safety and property of teachers and students. Keeping up with the perimeter is one of the responsibilities of the campus's security department.

Alarm Linkage

  • Integrated with 3rd party alarm devices

  • PTZ dome camera will turn to the preset position when an alarm is triggered by 3rd party alarm devices

1+1 Fiber Sharing

  • UNV network cameras support abundant network interfaces – optical fiber port, RJ45 port

  • Remote camera access by optical fiber port

  • Support 1+1 fiber sharing mode which saves cables

 

Security Center

 

Security center is the place for security managers and security guards to check live view and playback through video walls, PC workstations and other display devices. Based on the real-time view of the front camera, it verifies the alarm and dispatches the guard to the scene of the accident.

Reliable & Low-TCO System

NGN Architecture

  • Media streaming and signaling are processed separately. Video management server only handle signaling. The server’s failure will not influence the video storage and live view.

  • In traditional architecture, video recording would be lost when recording server stops running. This issue will be overcome in UNV’s NGN architecture where network camera sends the stream to IP SAN directly based on iSCSI standard storage protocol. It significantly decreases the investment because there is no media server and recording server in NGN architecture.

Tranditional Architecture

NGN Architecture

VMS 1+1 Hot Spare

  • UNV VMS supports 1+1 hot spare function. If the Master VMS breaks down, the Standby VMS will take over the service immediately. All service and data will be transferred back to Master VMS when it recovers from failure.

High-Reliable IP Storage

  • Different types of carrier-class hardware designs ensure high reliability and 7/24 operating capabilities.

Fully Redundant Modular Design

Anti-Dust & Sulfide Alarm Design

Anti-Vibration HDD Module

ANR

  • UNV cameras can automatically store video recordings into camera’s SD card when network is disconnected. Once the network is restored, the video recordings will be sent back to the storage server. Thus, all of video recordings would be saved even network fails temporarily.

IP Storage N+1

  • UNV IP SAN supports N+1 hot backup. If any active IP SAN fails, the standby IP SAN will automatically take over the service.

Cost-Effective Design

  • UNV IP storage adopts unique structure allowing 60 bays at a height of 4U with front panel hot swappable. Hence, UNV solution can save more than 60% rack space and much more power consumption under the same condition.

Abundant VMS Functions

Complete CCTV Functions

  • UNV VMS is a reliable and easy-to-use management platform. Live view/playback, TV wall management, and user role management are all available on VMS client.

Remote Application

  • Security guards are able to check live view, playback and alarm notifications anytime and anywhere through UNV’s APP EZView. It helps to work easier with higher efficiency.

Video Patrol

  • Security guards can patrol university with a group of cameras that can be configured in advance. The live view of this group of cameras will switch one by one after operators click the check button.

Watermark for Data Safety

  • Video recordings can be watermarked with customized content to prevent video recordings from unauthorized editing, which ensures creditable video record.

Quick Location of Accident

LED TV Wall

  • LED TV walls can be extended to any size, and have a seamless and wide angle view in the management center. With low maintenance cost and low space occupation, the UNV LED TV wall is designed and manufactured to the highest standards to meet constant work requirements of 24/7 and provide efficient video surveillance experience.

Friendly User Interface

  • UNV VMS is an easy-to-use management platform designed for CCTV system. Its flexible and feature-rich interface helps security guards easier and more efficiently verify alarms and coordinate a response.

Instant Playback

  • In order to playback a certain camera’s record quickly, one-click playback function is available on UNV VMS. Security guards can playback the last 5 minutes’ record instantly with only one button

Video Track

  • When the object is captured by multiple cameras, multiple windows can be displayed on one screen once video track function is activated. Click one of the cameras in the E-map, the live views of both that camera and cameras nearby are displayed, helping to locate the moving object.

Video Frame Extraction

  • Video can be divided into several parts with the same interval, the first frame of each part would be displayed automatically on the screen, forming a group of pictures to help security guards locate the object quickly.

E-Map

  • VMS client supports flashing alarms on E-maps and links live view on a video wall. It enables security guards to faster locate alarming area, which significantly shortens their reaction time.

Not Only VMS

  • Uniview provides a comprehensive security platform which can integrate with other security subsystems such as access control system, alarm system, etc. And UNV management platform also provides interface for other systems to obtain live view, records and other functions through SDK.
