Ortega InfoSystems Inc. upgrades City of Burlingame Police Department's video surveillance system with MxDC-4100 which features new IP-based cameras and content management while interoperating with existing analog cameras.

The City of Burlingame Police Department (CBPD) has chosen Ortega InfoSystems Inc. to upgrade its video surveillance system to modern IP-based system while preserving its current analog infrastructure. Ortega InfoSystems is installing the MxDC-4100 system, which provides integration with analog and IP-based cameras, video recording, audio, and web-based intuitive system management for the operator.

The City of Burlingame Police Department’s goal is to migrate its existing analog video surveillance system to a modern system that has better quality video, audio, and greater control over live and recorded content. One key condition is that the CBPD wants to keep its current analog system while getting more modern features from IP-based cameras and system. Another condition is that it wants a system that can manage additional cameras and interoperate with other departments in the future. The third condition is that it wants the ability to listen to audio from the holding cell and the interview room.

Working with the project system integrator, Vela Technologies, Ortega InfoSystems replaces a part of CBPD’s old system consisting of video switch, multiplexer, and 9-inch analog monitors with a single MxDC-4100 system while keeping the existing analog cameras. The new MxDC-4100 system includes encoders for up to 16 analog cameras and ability to connect another 16 IP-based cameras for total of 32 IP/analog connections. It also includes a decoder that gives it the ability to multiplex video from any source in the system in addition to the ability to record and manage video streams. The operator can view and manage all cameras from any network-enabled workstation running Microsoft Internet Explorer.

The MxDC-4100 system is based on Ortega’s broadly-deployed VideoSm@rtTM security management software, which offer a powerful, integrated IP video and audio solution for the enforcement authorities that require transmitting the security camera video image during an alarm to dispatch and to the responding units in real time.
