Paris chooses Teleste for video surveillance
Teleste has signed an agreement with INEO (GDF Suez Group) to provide a video surveillance system for the Préfecture de Police in Paris to facilitate traffic management, the maintenance of law and order, rescue operations, and the fight against terrorism.
The system will include active video networking equipment, recording infrastructure, and software, and will directly manage more than 1,100 cameras within the metropolitan region. It will also interconnect with other security networks across Paris used in the rail and metro systems, traffic control, major shopping centres, and other facilities.
The system will include 260 workstations, 55 monitoring centres, 2,500 operators, digital video storage covering 30 days of recordings, and the authentication of video evidential material.
The contract covers design services, hardware, software licences, and maintenance for a period of six years. Deliveries will take place in 2011 and 2012.
Teleste specialises in broadband video and data communication systems and services, and is among the global leaders in its fields. Video lies at the core of the company’s business, with a focus on the processing, transmission and management of video and data for operators and public authorities that provide video-related information, entertainment, and security services to end-users.
