Virtual Surveillance has been chosen as the equipment provider and integrator to facilitate the transition from a legacy analog surveillance system to a vastly improved, leading edge IP solution at Frito-Lay’s Modesto, CA facilities.
Allen, TX April 12, 2014 – Analog CCTV camera systems are quickly becoming a thing of the past as higher quality, more connected IP surveillance solutions become increasingly cost effective.
Network-based security cameras and access control equipment use standard computer networks for data transfer, provide much higher video resolution, and allow for a whole new level of monitoring and control capabilities that utilize the internet and mobile devices.
Frito-Lay has decided to transition their Modesto, CA facilities from a legacy analog CCTV system to an IP camera solution in order to take advantage of all these benefits. The system will include 56 IP security cameras, 18 of which will be all-weather fisheye cameras and 38 of which will be standard dome cameras. A fiber optic backbone will provide fast, reliable inter-building connectivity between cameras, video storage equipement, and the security team’s monitoring station.
These cameras will primarily be used to provide high resolution coverage of the food production environment, helping to guarantee food safety, as well as perimeter visibility and security of the facilities. The new equipment will allow for a much higher quality of video and a larger coverage area than the old analog system.
The facility’s security team will be able to monitor all activities live on large TV monitors, and the system will allow remote viewing and management for administrative members.
The capabilities of the new system will bring Frito-Lay’s Modesto, CA facility to the forefront of surveillance technology for years to come and help guarantee the safety of food consumed by countless consumers. Virtual Surveillance will be the exclusive security system installation firm working on the project.
