LEADING container terminals operator Patrick will beef up security by adopting powerful digital systems that can capture 1000 times more data than traditional cameras.

More than 500 digital security cameras will be installed at four terminals and two stevedores as Patrick discontinues its analog CCD (charge coupled device) video camera system.

The new cameras are said to be able to operate in myriad lighting conditions resulting in higher accuracy of facial details both indoors and outdoors.

Patrick selected California-based Pixim to supply the new cameras. Financial details were not disclosed.

"The maritime sites will incorporate Pixim-powered box and dome camera formats, placed inside Patrick's buildings and lobbies, as well as outdoors to protect the perimeters and acreage," Pixim said in a statement.

"At port access points, a person's face is no longer obscured by back light, shifts in lighting throughout the day or glare from water," John Monti, Pixim marketing and business development vice president, said.
