The closed circuit television (CCTV) has been established as a standard to increase the safety and comfort onboard of vessels, e.g. by surveillance of public and private spaces, unmanned machinery spaces, gangways, entrances and visual support at berthing maneuvers etc.
The video control system AHD-VCS is designed for individual operation of up to 16 video cameras including control of pan, tilt and zoom functionality. The system components can easily be integrated into a Böning Ship Alarm System, while the same displays can be used here. Also data communication is performed on the same CAN-bus. Therefore, no additional console space for separate monitors is required.
The presentation and control of real time video signals can performed anywhere on board either on touch screen displays with integrated operation facilities or alternatively monitors resp. television sets with separate video control panels AHD-VCP. The quantity of connected control panels is not limited.
