Axis Communications expands footprint in eastern India

Axis Communications, has announced the expansion of its footprint in Kolkata and the eastern India region and shared the successful implementation details of their association with Kolkata Police for surveillance and traffic management. In a webinar on 19th May, they also showcased their integrated smart solutions in IP Audio, Radar Technology, Network Cameras, and Thermal cameras. Centered around their philosophy of Creating a Smarter & Safer Tomorrow, the event brought to fore Axis’ recent success stories and their key takeaways from prestigious surveillance implementations across the country, including the implementation of surveillance systems in Vivekananda Stadium, Salt Lake during FIFA U-17 World Cup, in 2017.

The Government of West Bengal has been proactive in adopting a one-of-its-kind smart surveillance implementation. As Kolkata Police has always been the forerunner of the agenda of making Kolkata the safest city for the residents, the partnership with Axis Communications has successfully helped them in setting up high-resolution cameras across the city. Additionally, Axis ZipStream Technology has helped them optimize bandwidth and overall storage requirements of the massive video produced throughout the day, 24*7. This, in return, will help them track, monitor, and analyze the video feed for detecting criminal activities, traffic violations, and road conditions in real time.

Highlighting the efforts that led to the successful association with Kolkata Police, Sudhindra Holla, Director – India SAARC, Axis Communications, said, “We have 800+ camera installations across the city to track, monitor, and analyze the video feed for detecting criminal activities, traffic violations, and road conditions. With our strong portfolio of product line-up, we aim to support the authorities to deliver high surveillance and build a model Smart City.”

Speaking on the Vivekananda Stadium implementation, Sudhindra emphasized, “This project was challenging as it demands a state-of-the-art security system that matches the International standards of FIFA. With our global heritage of meeting the needs of the customers’ requirements with high definition products and solutions, we extended our hand towards securing the entire stadium with our high-end technologies. For example, the Light-finder technology which makes dark areas visible and captures minute details even in darkness and Forensic Wide Dynamic Range reveals details in difficult lighting by applying multiple exposure levels, contrast enhancement, and advanced algorithms that lower noise and increase the image signal. The Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Kriranga, is India’s second largest stadium with a seating capacity of 85,000 people. Our motive was to ensure that the work was seamless and met the requirements of the organizing committee.”
