barox solve video challenges for the Saxon State Parliament

In 2017, the Saxon State Parliament in Dresden started a comprehensive project to upgrade its entire video surveillance system. However, during the reconstruction, difficulties were encountered with the transmission of video and data, amongst other things.

On testing the system, it was found that video recordings were not being made at all, or if they were, only in very poor image quality, and in some cases data packets were not being received. At this point, a Siemens technician who had previously had good experience with barox equipment asked the manufacturer to step-in and help to solve the various transmission issues.

The technical challenge was to continue with the use of legacy coax cables of the older system. To solve the problem, barox specified their VI-COAX-2401A IP PoE extenders for use on the short distance coaxial cables – to provide stable and secure video transmission without any problems.

Within a few months, barox had tackled the many other transmission challenges and helped to bring the State Parliament’s system up to scratch. Since its upgrade, the video system has been running flawlessly, with all camera video picture quality reported to be being transmitted and received perfectly.

The Parliament’s site system specification was finalised using barox 19″ managed switches, 10G uplink, 24 port RY-LGSP23-28/370 units with PoE + and barox DMS.

“barox solved our legacy video transmission problems quickly and by introducing good quality,” says Jan Treichel, part of the technical team at the Saxon State Parliament. “The service idea always had top priority. As a result, barox is now also in demand for other projects of the Saxon State Parliament. “
