S COPE 2 Introduction Objectives Video Surveillance System (VSS) Standard Conclusion
I NTRODUCTION 3 A new Video Surveillance System (VSS) Standard for Buildings was drafted in line with the improvement in technology. VSS deployment to support and enhance the overall management of a building’s security. Most effective when deployed with other security measures (e.g. access control, alarm systems).
O BJECTIVES 4 Video Surveillance System (VSS) Standards Provides for a uniform and consistent approach for the technical specifications, installation, operation and performance of VSS across buildings in Singapore. Provides guidelines to the industry in the deployment of VSS Helps in security management and assist in post incident investigations/reviews.
C AMERA 5 Resolution of HD 1080p: 1920 x 1080 pixels or its equivalentHD 1080p: 1920 x 1080 pixels – Widescreen: cover wider areas, lesser cameras will be required SD Resolution HD Resolution
C AMERA 6 Resolution of HD 1080p: 1920 x 1080 pixels or its equivalentHD 1080p: 1920 x 1080 pixels – Better Resolution Subject identification Illegal activities detection Allows for the addition of video analytics subsystem SD ResolutionHD Resolution
C AMERA 7 Network IP-based Cameras, recommended to be compliance to Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standards Minimum height of 2m from floor level Vandal-resistant and Tamper-proof enclosure Good colour reproduction for easy identification Fixed Cameras are deployed to meet coverage requirement; Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) Cameras can be used as a supplement to fixed cameras
Lift lobbies Staircase landings Ingress/Egress for Human/Vehicle For identification of vehicle / person of interest entering / exiting from the building C OVERAGE REQUIREMENTS 8 Main entrance lobby Registration counter
C OVERAGE R EQUIREMENTS 9 Public Access Areas – Street areas within building’s boundaries – Entrances / Exits to MRT stations
C OVERAGE D EFINITION – HD1080 R ESOLUTION 10 Detect / Observe – 10% Recognize – 20% 10% of Panel Height 20% of Panel Height Identify – 45% 45% of Panel Height
R ECORDING 11 Open-format CODEC and video container format Period of Archival: 28 days + 10% buffer Basic Metadata: GPS time and date to be watermarked on recorded images Image quality of HD1080p: 1920x1080 – Good quality images for post incident investigations – Clear images allow for speedier identification of the subject which will lead to faster apprehension of the perpetrator Recording and storage facility: – Preventive measures against unauthorised removal/ viewing of recordings – Sited in the inner perimeter of the building
L IGHTING 12 Ensure that the artificial/natural lighting does not blind the camera view. Lighting should be continuous and sufficient to support VSS coverage. Light source is recommended to be a minimum of 2m from the camera. Preferred position for the light is above the camera.
C AMERA S YSTEM 13 Reserve viewing terminal – For Emergency Response Agencies System Integrator (SI) / Vendor to provide Software Development Kit (SDK) for commands including Select Camera, View, Extract, PTZ and Playback VSS designed and installed with a minimum f 20% spare capacity for future expansion Signage – Strategically located to inform the public that the VSS is continuously monitored and recorded – Building owners may opt for Digital TV instead
A LARMS & A NALYTICS 14 Alarms may be installed to inform the users of potential issues from the camera system: – Video loss alarm – Tamper alarm Video Analytics may be deployed to help the CCTV operators in picking up suspicious activities – Loitering – Unattended bag
C ONCLUSION 15 Video Surveillance System (VSS) Standard for Buildings A set of VSS Standard to provide guidelines to the security industry in the deployment of VSS to enhance the building’s overall security.
