        [title] => Mobile CCTV – Introducing the new anywhere, anytime MU Series
        [permalink] => mobile-cctv-introducing-the-new-anywhere-anytime-mu-series
        [content] => 
    

    Fully equipped with wireless communications, the MU Series can be deployed for community events such as the Australia Day Skyworks or on remote mining sites.

    A key feature of the MU Series is the self-sufficient solar panels that ensure clean, energy efficient operation. Recognised for it’s energy efficiency, the MU Series was awarded a Certificate of Commendation at the NECA Excellence Awards in 2016.

    With innovation and safety at its core, the new MU Series can be operated remotely and monitored 24-hours. It also features wireless repeaters and access points that enable the tracking of assets and provides free Wi-Fi, making it ideal for community events. Simplifying installation and ongoing management, the MU Series can be operated as standalone units or integrated into existing CCTV systems.

    Designed and manufactured at Downer’s facility in Western Australia, the MU Series ensures quality and reliability to customers across Australia. To learn more about the MU Series click here to watch a short video.

    Recent installations of the new MU Series include locations across Perth’s CBD where the units have been used to monitor community safety for the City of Perth.

    Leading the MU Series development, Security and Network Services Manager Gavin Aquino, said the new MU Series is getting a lot of attention from existing and new customers.

    “The MU Series is specifically designed to address the ELV (extra low voltage) needs of short-term, mobile and remote sites. There are countless CCTV solutions on the market but the feedback we’ve received from customers is that the MU Series is the only solution that meets the mandatory requirements of safety and standalone operation.”

        [content] => 
    

    Downer was awarded the contract in 2015 to design, build and install two new high-tech systems that provide the technology infrastructure to support the new Perth Busport.

    The two new systems are the Real Time Tracking System (RTTS) and Dynamic Stand Management System (DSMS). These provide a range of services including:

    • managing the flow of buses;
    • directing bus drivers on their journey;

    •  

      managing traffic priority at major intersections; and
    • enabling passengers to track the real-time movements of their bus via mobile Apps.

    The DSMS system is one of the first systems of its kind worldwide and the new Perth Busport is a first for Australia. Each bus is allocated to one of sixteen stands on arrival and the information is communicated to passengers via large electronic screens in the air-conditioned passenger lounge.

    “This project awarded to Downer by the WA PTA follows a long-standing relationship on delivering technical solutions to our valued customers. Similar high-tech services include the successful roll-out of Transperth’s SmartRider ticketing system in 2007 and the Integrated Ticket Vending Machines deployed in 2008, as well as ongoing management and maintenance of these. We are proud to be working with the PTA and very pleased to see this project go live”, said David Humphreys, General Manager, Next Generation Technologies.

    Engineered and manufactured by Downer’s Security and Network team, the MU3000 was deployed at Australia’s biggest fireworks show for Australia Day in Perth, WA last week. The unit was set up at Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth where cameras monitored the area for three days leading up to the fireworks display without the need to run generators, power cables or permanent infrastructure. The fully self-sufficient MU3000 uses solar panels to power cameras, storage and communications, while the battery back-up allows the MU3000 to run 24-hours…and it can continue to run for a further seven days if there’s no sun.

    The City of South Perth was able to log into the CCTV system via laptops, tablets and mobile phones to view and control cameras. High definition PTZ cameras were mounted onto the top of the hydraulically operated rotatable mast which offered a 360° view. Image stabilisation on the cameras meant that any vibration from wind on the solar panels was suppressed for high quality images day and night. With the MU3000 designed to be used in publically accessible areas, the solar panels were mounted out of reach approximately half way up the mast and clear of lower obstructions to the sun such as vehicles and mid-sized trees.

    Dene Lawrence from the City of South Perth said, “The CCTV trailer was very easy to set up and use, and was deployed in a matter of minutes by only one person. Remote login via 4G meant that live images were readily accessible 24-hours a day from anywhere with phone coverage. We plan to utilise more of these units in the future for our outdoor public events.”

    The MU3000 can be mounted on a range of fit for purpose trailers which are designed to meet customer’s specific needs and the panels are positioned to allow for easy cleaning. MU3000’s have been installed in a wide range of locations including remote mine sites to deliver CCTV and network communications.

    Congratulations to the Security and Network Services team on a great result for Australia Day fireworks in WA and their innovative work with the MU3000.

    You might wonder what solar powered CCTV has to do with firework safety, but our very own solar powered CCTV unit called the MU3000 does just that!
