Digifort surveillance solutions are directly collaborating in solving the main challenges of Brazilian economic growth.  Urban traffic, public safety, services, trade, industry, transport, ports, airports and sport arenas are some of the sectors where the product has solved operational problems and offered state-of-the-art technology in recent years. The highway concession segment also represents a good share of this market.  The software records an important success case with Concepa, part of the Triunfo Group, which operates in the infrastructure sector in various regions in the country.

.

At first, Concepa’s safety and IP surveillance project already includes 49 cameras in operation, running updated versions of Digifort Enterprise for highway monitoring, and Digifort Professional for monitoring toll squares.  As an operational elasticity strategy, Concepa further holds 74 Enterprise licenses, and 60 Professional ones, which brings the total to 134 cameras in its range of immediate growth.  It was all projected to monitor vehicle flow and oversee the care provided in accidents or routine services along the Rio Grande highway.

.

The company further adds various resources, seeking quality in the services being provided.  “We have a license for the Commbox alarm and automation module.  In lifting system control at the lift bridge at Lago Guaíba, we use Digifort InSight.  Tools such as the keyboard controller, PTZ joystick, synoptic maps and camera display over cell phones are used on the highway.  In lanes with AVI (Automatic Vehicle Identification) technology, we will adopt the Digifort LPR for license plate recognition.  After launching the new version of the software, the vehicle counting module, alongside the present PTZ camera, will also operate”, explains Luciano Leite, Concepa’s Automation Advisor.

.

Benefits – Before Digifort, Concepa used software that presented installation difficulties, since a license was required for each “client”.  In case of system expansion, new acquisitions were time consuming.  Nowadays, Concepa has total freedom to use “client” licenses at no cost.  Other important factor was the use of their “video encoders”, since Digifort allows the use of any camera and encoder already in use within the company.  This enables the company to take advantage of the already-existing equipment and accessories.

.

“We had problems integrating the old encoders to the new platform.  We sent a model of the equipment by mail and the Digifort team solved the problem in only one hour, sending us the correction immediately by e-mail.  The solution was definitive, since we never had any more problems since then.  Other action that marked positively was the fact that Digifort does not have a virtual matrix at the start of the project.  The demand was satisfied with the visit by Carlos Eduardo Bonilha, Digifort’s director, at our control center.  Soon after, we received an update that satisfied our needs.  This makes all the difference”, concludes Luciano.

Check all the main Digifort benefits at Concepa:

.

  • Alarms triggered by movement.
  • Usage of the existing technological legacy.
  • Borderless full-screen display in “clients”.
  • Possibility of eight monitors for a single “client”.
  • Utilization of the virtual matrix for display on the rear projection cubes on the video wall.
  • Utilization of Digifort InSight for lifting and management at the lift bridge at Lago Guaíba.
  • System automation on the Commbox module, allowing the opening of doors, turning on of lights.
  • Licensing for cameras and freedom to use system’s “clients” (client free).
  • Events that enable the use of a “preset” when a “Call Box” is activated on the highway.
  • On-line image transmission from service vehicles from the highway.

CCO has a “video wall” and various independente monitors

Control center – Concepa has an Operations Control Center (OCC), considered the heart of the company. From it, the teams who attend medical or mechanical emergencies on the highway are dispatched.  The OCC, which operates 24 hours a day, is also from where “Customer Service” is located, with toll-free calls being received via the “Alô Free Way” (0800-647-2000).  During the summer, a period of great vehicle concentration on the highways, the team counts with operational backup.  Cameras from the Digifort system are concentrated at the CCO, from where it is possible to monitor highway traffic next to the company’s reception.

.

About Concepa – The company manages the “Free Way”, considered the best highway in southern Brazil, as published in the “2012-2013 Guia Quatro Rodas”.  In the national rankings, the road occupies the 8th position.  The concession was granted by the Federal Government, in October 1997, under the Federal Highway Concession Program, and has the objective of exploring the BR-290 highway, on the stretch that interconnects the cities of Osório, Porto Alegre and Guaíba (junction of BR-116), in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.

.

The company is responsible for 121 kilometers of highways, besides the three toll squares, being two unidirectional and one bidirectional.  Since June 2008, the Concepa’s controlling interest is 100% owned by “Triunfo Participações e Investimentos S.A”.   More information about Concepa is available at www.concepa.com.br or at the “Alô Free Way” service, via the toll-free number 0800-647-2000.
