Large U.S. Farm Operation Adds OnSSI’s Wireless Surveillance
PEARL RIVER, N.Y. — One of the largest farm and dairy operations in the U.S. has implemented a NetDVMS networked video surveillance system from On-Net Surveillance Systems Inc. (OnSSI) to help watch over their operations.
RD Offutt Co., based in Fargo, N.D., added the sytem to its Three Mile Canyon Farms/Castle Rock Farming, which is located about 150 miles east of Portland. The farm covers 93,000 acres and uses forward-looking green farming practices to produce potatoes and other crops. It is also home to one of the largest dairies in the U.S. managed by Columbia River Dairy.
The farming operation now uses OnSSI’s NetDVMS to tie together video surveillance and monitor business operations, utilizing a 110-square-mile wireless network that contains more than 1,000 nodes. The company chose NetDVMS for its ease of use, flexibility, rich features and cost effectiveness.
The scalability of NetDVMS enabled RD Offutt to enhance video surveillance by tying new cameras into an existing network of cameras. The company can view and manage cameras and recorded video from multiple NetDVMS servers located anywhere in the world. OnSSI’s NetDVMS’s video client and Netmatrix virtual video matrix switch software technologies allow the company to view video anywhere on the network at bandwidths that do not create congestion or network problems, according to the company.
NetDVMS, which is also an Ocularis platform recorder, is a large-scale IP video surveillance management system designed for multi-site/multi-server NVR and camera management applications. NetDVMS provides enterprise-level recording, archiving and event management capabilities for an unlimited number of cameras, through convergence with physical security and IT systems, advanced content analytics modules and Universal Camera Support.
“Wireless networking enables NetDVMS to be used across a very large geographic area, and this application demonstrates perfectly the flexibility of the technology and its capability to transform the effectiveness of large systems,” says Gadi Piran, president, OnSSI. “The need to monitor video from multiple sites is a growing requirement for enterprise businesses, and it’s an environment where NetDVMS really delivers.”
