Walking the Line
How do you ensure the security of premium works of art by renowned artists such as Damien Hirst or Eduardo Paolozzi when placed in public spaces, some of which are particularly secluded? The quick answer is you turn to iFacility.
‘The Line’ is a world-class sculpture park in London that follows the Prime Meridian from the 02 towards the Olympic Park. Along the way it passes though some popular and busy neighbourhoods and some less well know districts and areas undergoing regeneration.
This presents some challenges both to the creators of The Line and to iFacility.
For The Line’s creative team it meant that works of art – often significant pieces with some substantial financial and cultural value – would be placed in areas where there were few passers by. There was a constant risk of damage, whether intentional from vandalism or otherwise: overzealous walkers an overenthusiastic art lovers. They needed constant surveillance.
iFacility, of course, are well placed to provide that surveillance. But some of these locations were so remote they weren’t just short of pedestrian traffic they were also off grid in terms of network connections and – in some cases – electricity too. With iFacility’s experience of leading edge technologies cameras were installed that connected wirelessly – and securely – via 3G and 4G mobile phone networks. And where power was also a problem, cameras could be supported by battery systems.
Thanks to these innovative solutions all the artworks on The Line are protected and monitored around the clock via the iFacility Control Centre. Now, should someone approach an artwork, the highly trained staff at the control centre are immediately alerted and can, depending on the incident, send out an audible warning or contact the appropriate authorities.
If you’re involved in an original or innovative project, such as The Line, we’d be pleased to talk with you and – without obligation – discuss the opportunities we could help deliver.
The Sony SNC-VM772R 4K CCTV Camera
Exceptional sensitivity and resolution with the SNC-VM772R4K CCTV
With four times the resolution of Full HD, Sony’s 4K CCTV camera the SNC-VM772R – supplied or installed from iFacility (Sony Partner of the year 2015-2017) brings industry-leading clarity and sensitivity to critical video monitoring and surveillance applications. (see a demonstration of a 4k picture and its amazing zoom here)
Thanks to the camera’s large, sensitive 1.0-type back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor, high-speed image processing and high-quality zoom lens, the SNC-VM772R from Sony captures detail-packed 4K video footage with a minimum illumination of 0.06 lx – even in near darkness.
Automatic selection of picture settings
Picture settings are automatically selected to suit a wide range of operating environments, such as weather, time, and lighting conditions, providing the best picture quality for the scene. They can also be manually adjusted for even more flexible operation.
Various output modes
The increased resolution of 4K opens up exciting new monitoring possibilities. Traditional video surveillance requires a PTZ camera or several box cameras to survey a wide area. The SNC-VM772R can stream an overall low-resolution situational view, plus cropped original 4K resolution views of specific areas of interest in the scene, with Multi Tracking to chase moving subjects. The 20 megapixel sensor also enables high-quality still image recording at beyond 4K resolution to allow close examination of a scene for evidence purposes.
Other key features
• Excellent low-light capabilities are further enhanced with in-built IR illuminators for true night-time coverage.
• Edge Storage (onboard recording with memory cards) safeguards recordings during network outrage.
• The camera’s outstanding image performance is enhanced with features, including Optical Image Stabilisation for steadier pictures.
• Quick, simple installation and set-up is aided by a smartphone or tablet PC app for remote field of view adjustment
• Discreet style, ruggedised vandal and weather-resistant design; ideal for tough round-the-clock cctv security indoors or out (IK10, IP66).

Welcome, TWIƧTED Automotive
TWISTED Automotive produce the world’s finest Land Rover Defenders. Taking the new production line models, they upgrade the engine, modify the bodywork and add a tough but luxurious interior.
With such an exclusive product – and premium clients – it was natural that they looked for a security and CCTV surveillance specialist as unique as them.
Twisted began in 2000 with the emphasis on delivering more power from Land Rover Defenders. That quest for power came hand in hand with a desire to make them look as good as they could too: beautifully crafted, brilliantly specified. It’s been successful, with an ever more diverse customer base developing.
The owner, Charles Fawcett is modest about product development, describing how it is Twisted’s customers that push them and make demands for every nuance of the finish and detailing. It means that every model delivered is different and distinct but shares the common DNA of the classic Land Rover.
In 2013 Twisted hand built more than 100 unique Defenders along with bringing their design expertise (and technical prowess) to more than 200 more, brought in by their proud owners. It’s a growing business but one in which the quality of workmanship remains as high as it ever was.
We’re looking forward to a great partnership, protecting this flourishing business based in Thirsk, Yorkshire.
