2 Scope Introduction Objectives Video Surveillance System (VSS) Standard Conclusion
3 IntroductionA 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).
4 Objectives 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 VSSHelps in security management and assist in post incident investigations/reviews.
5 Camera Resolution of HD 1080p: 1920 x 1080 pixels or its equivalent Widescreen: cover wider areas, lesser cameras will be requiredSD ResolutionHD Resolution
6 Camera Resolution of HD 1080p: 1920 x 1080 pixels or its equivalent Better ResolutionSubject identificationIllegal activities detectionAllows for the addition of video analytics subsystemResolution of HD 1080p: 1920 x 1080 pixels or its equivalentSD ResolutionHD Resolution
7 CameraNetwork IP-based Cameras, recommended to be compliance to Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standardsMinimum height of 2m from floor levelVandal-resistant and Tamper-proof enclosureGood colour reproduction for easy identificationFixed Cameras are deployed to meet coverage requirement; Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) Camerascan be used as a supplement to fixedcameras
8 Coverage requirements Lift lobbiesStaircase landingsIngress/Egress for Human/VehicleFor identification of vehicle / person of interest entering / exiting from the buildingMain entrance lobbyRegistration counter
9 Coverage Requirements Public Access AreasStreet areas within building’s boundariesEntrances / Exits to MRT stations
10 Coverage Definition – HD1080 Resolution Detect / Observe – 10%Recognize – 20%20% of Panel Height10% of Panel Height45% of Panel HeightIdentify – 45%
11 Recording Open-format CODEC and video container format Period of Archival: 28 days + 10% bufferBasic Metadata: GPS time and date to be watermarked on recorded imagesImage quality of HD1080p: 1920x1080Good quality images for post incident investigationsClear images allow for speedier identification of the subject which will lead to faster apprehension of the perpetratorRecording and storage facility:Preventive measures against unauthorised removal/ viewing of recordingsSited in the inner perimeter of the building
12 LightingEnsure 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 lightis above the camera.
13 Camera System Reserve viewing terminal For Emergency Response AgenciesSystem Integrator (SI) / Vendor to provide Software Development Kit (SDK) for commands including Select Camera, View, Extract, PTZ and PlaybackVSS designed and installed with a minimum f 20% spare capacity for future expansionSignageStrategically located to inform the public that theVSS is continuously monitored and recordedBuilding owners may opt for Digital TV instead
14 Alarms & AnalyticsAlarms may be installed to inform the users of potential issues from the camera system:Video loss alarmTamper alarmVideo Analytics may be deployed to help the CCTV operators in picking up suspicious activitiesLoiteringUnattended bag
15 Conclusion 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.(http://www.police.gov.sg/img/advisories/misc/vss_standard_for_buildings.pdf)
