As a result of the security audit, a range of updates were recommended. Alastair Wilson, Business Manager at D&A Systems explains: “We advised a number of specific security improvements, but key to our overall plan was the total modernisation of the CCTV system, including the relocation of the control facility to a purpose built room in the plant’s emergency control centre.
“Using Panasonic camera, control and recording technology not only gave us the ability to effectively upgrade the system, it also allowed us to integrate existing elements of the legacy CCTV solution, to provide the best mix of equipment and most economical upgrade possible.
” ZOOM’s Panasonic Premier Integrator status not only assured D&A Systems and Vauxhall of an effective system install, it also gave them access to live onsite demonstrations of the specified Panasonic products in action both at Vauxhall and at the Arndale Centre in Manchester (a previous ZOOM installation). Paul Holding explains: “The ‘hands on’ presentation of product, married to the fact that it is manufactured by a household name with the stature of Panasonic, gave us total confidence in the technology we were investing in.”
Using a mixture of Panasonic WV-CW864A and WV-CW964 domes, WVCP254 day/night and WVCP484 Super Dynamic III cameras, Vauxhall’s security operators now view all aspects of the expansive site including employee car parks, pedestrian and vehicular entrance and exit gates, and the site’s three-mile perimeter fence line.
Using Panasonic’s Super Dynamic III cameras not only provides highresolution pictures to the control room but also allows economical camera placement. With high-quality cameras producing high-resolution images, fewer units are needed to cover a specific area, keeping the total installation cost down.

Back in the control room, operators manage the system via Panasonic’s WV-CU650 system controller and separate joystick. The controller allows operators to pan, tilt and zoom any system camera at the touch of a button. When reviewing recorded footage, the unit’s Jog Dial and Shuttle Ring allow easy, precise control of every search operation and system setting giving one touch access to the Record, Replay, and Search functions of each of the three Panasonic WJ-HD316A 16-channel digital recorders employed at the site. Moreover, should an incident occur which requires retrospective offsite investigation, evidential data can be burnt to disk using the Panasonic DM-RES10C DVD Recorder.
