The Vatican Chooses GeoVision

GeoVision surveillance solution was deployed at the Vatican City in preparation for the Holy Jubilee celebration to enhance security amid terrorism scare.

Rome is on high security alert for the upcoming Holy Jubilee, starting December 8, following the November 13 attacks in Paris in which terrorists killed 129 people. Newly enhanced security measures were announced at a press conference in response to safety concerns for an estimated 25 million Catholic pilgrims who are expected to be present at the Vatican during the Holy Jubilee celebration.

At the conference, Rome’s Prefect Franco Gabrielli and Rome Commissioner Francesco Paolo Tronca gave a presentation of the city’s video monitoring center where GeoVison’s GV-Control Center and Video Wall solutions have been implemented to manage the heavy task of monitoring video feeds from the additional CCTV cameras dispatched over 140 cites within Rome. Through the sophisticated network structure of the GV-Control Center, false alarms will be effectively reduced and security officials can be efficiently dispatched to any areas that detect a suspicious activity during this highly-trafficked event.

As part of the anti-terrorism regime set in action in the aftermath of the Paris attacks, more CCTV cameras have been added with over 140 cites within Rome currently under surveillance in preparation for the Holy Jubilee. Using GeoVision Central Monitoring Solution, data from the cameras feeds back to the video monitoring center to provide full access and control of the channels. GV-Video Wall has also been setup to display the numerous channels with flexibility to adjust the size and position of each channel.

In order to handle the heavy task of video recording for this large-scale application, GV-Recording Servers have been implemented to receive and record up to 128 channels per server. Through an intuitive web interface, each channel can be configured to record video continuously, upon motion detection, upon I/O trigger, or according to a schedule. Through GV-Recording Server, Rome’s authorities can also send text notifications to GV-VSM (Vital Sign Monitor) when alert conditions occur.
