DIP upgrades smart video surveillance system to monitor traffic & security

Monday, October 12, 2015

Dubai Investments Park [DIP], the one-of-a-kind integrated commercial, industrial and residential community in the Middle East and wholly-owned by Dubai Investments PJSC [DI], has upgraded its smart, state-of-the-art Video Surveillance solution aimed at monitoring perimeter security and vehicle recognition within the community. 


The hi-tech Video Surveillance solution, developed by TechSource LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dubai Investments PJSC offering the complete portfolio of services in the IT domain, is currently operational in the residential areas in Green Community East Park locality within DIP.

As part of the upgraded system, a live feed of 40 High Definition cameras are providing accurate frame-by-frame recognition of the vehicle plate numbers at the entry and exit points of the industrial gates in East Park neighbourhood. The pilot project also involves installation of new cameras in next few months in other parts of DIP to enhance the monitoring zones.

TechSource is responsible for the complete, hi-tech multipoint wireless infrastructure for this video surveillance network, including providing the know-how. The Company has come up with an effective design, backed by reliable, easy-to-deploy and cost-effective technology in partnership with leading IT vendors, to manage the operations. 

Omar Al Mesmar, General Manager of DIP, said: “Since it was conceptualised, DIP was always envisioned as one of the best planned and operated developments in the region. We have always endeavoured to regularly enhance the infrastructure in line with global best practices. The upgraded Video Surveillance system is part of DIP’s efforts to monitor, control and optimise traffic flow and security mechanism within the community.”

He added: “The system, to be scaled up in the future, also analyses the demand-based future growth potential within the DIP community – particularly on vehicular traffic, which can be used and adapted as part of the future growth plans and the evolving needs of the development.”

“The Video Surveillance solution from TechSource is a ground-breaking value addition to boost perimeter security, vehicle movement and monitoring within DIP. The system is highly scalable and offers remarkable software flexibility to manage surveillance within the assigned zones. We continue to work with our partners to fully leverage TechSource’s technical experiences in this domain for future projects,” said Venkatesh Mahadevan, General Manager of TechSource LLC.

Since its inception in 1998, DIP has spent over AED 4 billion aimed at building and elevating its infrastructure to world-class standards. As of date, DIP offers 140 kilometres of internal road network, highly-sustainable power and water supply, well-connected telecommunications network and district cooling services across the entire park. 

The infrastructural growth within DIP continues to transform the business park into a self-contained city-within-a-city. The park currently has over 4,500 companies, including medium to light industrial units across a wide array of sectors, apart from well-established and equipped residential communities and staff accommodation.

Established in 2009, TechSource LLC offers a wide array of application development services, as also business intelligence and analytics, business process solutions, enterprise solutions, infrastructure services, security solutions, network and data storage tools and mobility solutions.
