Hikvision secures London's largest shopping centre

London, UK and Hangzhou, China

Gallions Reach Shopping Park is located in the borough of Newham, the largest investment area in Europe with an estimated £22bn to be spent on homes, offices and other infrastructure in the next 10 years.

When Gallions Reach Shopping Park in London required an upgrade for its CCTV system, it turned to installers Pacific Security and the revolutionary Turbo analogue equipment from Hikvision.

Gallions Reach is the largest Shopping Park in London, set on a 65 acre site with 325,000 square feet of retail space. Home to 35 retailers, it is located in the heart of the Borough of Newham, which is the largest investment area in Europe with an estimated £22bn to be spent on homes, offices and other infrastructure in the next 10 years. In 2016 the owners of Gallions Reach began a programme refreshing the Park’s landscape, and are now starting the next stage, updating the shop fronts to a more contemporary design.

There are 41 Hikvision cameras installed, both externally to cover car parking areas, and internally for shop fronts and office spaces. The cameras include the DS-2AE7230TI- A PTZ model, which utilises HD-TVI transmission technology and up to 30x optical zoom to provide HD 1080p images to the control room. To cover exteriors and car parks, Pacific used DS-2CE56D1T-VPIR vandal-proof dome cameras. These high performance 2MP cameras provide HD 1080p resolution images and true day/night capabilities, with infrared coverage up to 20m from the camera. Three dedicated 16 channel DS-7316HQHI-F4/N Turbo DVRs record the HD images, and the pictures are monitored 24-hours a day by an onsite security team.

Hikvision’s Turbo range is ideal for projects like the Gallions Reach Shopping Park, as the Turbo cameras and recorders allow images to be transmitted over almost any format. IP, analogue, Turbo HD, and third-party AHD cameras are all supported.

“For this project, we wanted to provide the Gallions Reach security team with high resolution 1080p HD images,” Mesher says. “Hikvision’s Turbo products made perfect sense as they could utilise the existing analogue cabling network and still record crystal clear high resolution pictures. At the same time, their IP connectivity allows the cameras to be connected to an Ethernet network.”
