Case Study: INVESTA office tower in Sydney CBD upgrades
their Video solution

#1 Market Street is a prominent A-grade commercial office tower, located adjacent to Darling Harbour and a stone’s throw from the vibrant centre of the Sydney CBD. Late last year, Investa’s management decided to upgrade the aging analogue camera system. They chose H3C PLUS to provide the solution.

33 Bosch 1080p AUTODOME and FLEXIDOME cameras were used across four zones: Building Perimeter, Car Park/Dock, General Lobbies, and Plant Room/Roof. Three AUTODOME IP 5000 HD 1080p PTZs were located at key vantage points near front and back entrances. These outdoor PTZs feature highspeed PTZ control with 30x optical zoom and accurate color reproduction in scenes with varying lighting levels, providing identification of people up to 180m without loss of detail. The remainder of the 30 cameras comprise FLEXIDOME IP 5000 HD (outdoor & indoor versions). These feature 1080p resolution for sharp images, IR option (with 15m viewing distance) and an auto zoom/focus lens for quick installation and set up.

“We chose Bosch cameras for their performance in different light conditions and the quality images they produce,” advised Nicholas. “Their ONVIF compliance also made them compatible with Geutebrück VMS, the platform specified by Investa. With a bit of tweaking optimal integration was achieved.”

“Overall Jonathan and I are very happy with the result delivered for 1 Market Street. Objectives derived from the security audit and client’s brief were achieved. We are also pleased with the performance of the Bosch cameras. The image quality is impressive,” stated Nicholas Churchill. “Apart from the deployed CCTV solution, Investa management also welcomed the new fibre backbone which future proofs the building’s IP communications capabilities.”
