About Digital Grape Business Services
Digital Grape Business Services has provided technical support in the development of new CCTV standards and compliance of systems designs for transportation based applications in North America as well as for major Safe City projects in Europe the Middle East and Australia.
These projects have involved the company in working with various branches of security ministries, law enforcement and transportation security departments as well as liaising with systems providers in the development of solutions that meet the latest International surveillance standards.
Compliance with these new standards are essential to enable baseline quality of imagery and usage requirements to be met, including use by departmentsof Justice as evidence. The surveillance industry has many levels of technology that can be used in mass transit as well as municipal and country wide surveillance applications. This on-going task of reviewing technologies and capabilities of surveillance systems that are appropriate for use in these applications, as they are applied to real-world requirements, has enabled Digital Grape Business Services to evaluate available technologies for use in a wide range of public safety applications.
We work with a wide range of other organisations as subject matter experts (SME) to develop these new 'CCTV Standards' for transportation and Safe City applications, that are now in use in a number of countries as the baseline requirements for CCTV systems. We provide design verification and compliance services to end users and government agencies to ensure that surveillance systems meet both existing as well as new operational and technical requirements.
The day after a major incident is not the time to discover your surveillance system wasn't designed correctly!
With more and more Safe City 'integrated' surveillance projects, as well as public transportation projects now being developed world wide, our work is now extending into the area of advanced IP camera technologies and the 'practical' use of Video Content Analytics (VCA / IVA) and information based analytics (licence plate recognition etc.) where needed.
Our design and compliance services cover the latest requirements of integrated control room software technologies compliant with the latest CRISIS requirements, to bring together the increasing number of security technologies now being used in control rooms, as well as assessing the need and applicability of these technologies to your specific application's and security requirements.
We would be happy to assist in assessing projects, both large and small, involving surveillance technologies specifically where these are to be used in Mass Transit or Safe City applications. These can involve reviewing and assessing and existing CCTV systems, or helping plan and manage deployment of a new system. Either way we would be pleased to offer our expertise in support of your project.
