Extreme IP Video Installation

25 Mar
Southside Technology engineers recently completed an extremely challenging installation of outdoor IP video equipment at the Cairngorm Mountain ski area located in the Cairngorms National Park.

This installation provided many logistical and technical challenges to our team, not least the extremely harsh weather and high altitude installation site.

The brief required that the camera installation be able to feed a live stream of high resolution images to the Cairngorm’s website as well as the customers intranet facility from the main Ptarmigan basin ski area located near the mountain summit. In addition it was a pre-requisite that the camera be located outdoors, be able to withstand extreme weather conditions during the winter months where the area regularly has very low temperatures and extremely high wind speeds and huge snowfalls. Finally to add further complexity due to the National Park status, outdoor cabling to the equipment was not an option so all the equipment had to be wireless compatible, the image stream being fed back to the network using industrial strength 2.4GHZ wireless bridging.

If you would like to know more about this project or feel you have a challange of your own that we may be able to help with then please feel free to contact us using the contact us link at the bottom of the page.

Here are a few images of the installation site taken on 25th March 2008 more than 3 months after the initial installation in December 2007.
