Car park security in Paris improved

SAEMES (Société Anonyme d’Economie Mixte d’Exploitation du Stationnement, a semi-public parking system operator for the City of Paris) controls more than 90 car parks in the city area of Paris. Over 4 million visitors use the parking each year. For the central surveillance and the management of the car parks SAEMES has installed a new control room. There, the signals of the CCTV cameras are centrally displayed. Additionally the control room staff answer all service requests and emergency calls from the clients in the car parks. Thus, no human presence in the car parks is necessary.

To display the CCTV camera images eyevis has installed a 7 qm video wall, consisting of twelve 46’’-displays type EYE-LCD-4600-M-USN-LD. The incoming signals are controlled with a netPIX 4800 graphics controller and the eyeCON wall management software.

The goal of the new control room was to increase the surveillance of the car parks and thus to increase the safety for the parked cars. To achieve this, the control room operates around the clock. This way more than 3000 service requests and emergency calls are answered each week. Therefore, the reliability of the displays is really important. With full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 Px), direct LED backlight technology for best brightness and contrast, and a minor resulting bezel between neighbouring display in a video wall of only 5.7mm, the 46’’ displays from eyevis offer a homogeneous picture quality along the entire video wall.
