The LLP parking operation of Glasgow City Council in the UK, City Parking (Glasgow), has equipped its multi-storey car parks with an integrated CCTV system for control, management and recording of real-time CCTV images.

The IP-based system provides automated camera control and recording profiles based on the activation of intercom, pay station or barrier control help points.

If the central Control Room receives a call for assistance from the intercom an associated camera is then directed towards the help point, barrier or pay station with an increased recording profile.

The technology has been designed and provided by UK firm Visimetrics.

The system allows the operator to handle an issue better by removing time delays rising from finding and selecting the relevant camera, says Visimetrics.

The installation of a new system is part of a major refurbishment programme of city car parks by the operator.
