City surveillance in HDTV resolution

Video surveillance with 1000 Axis network cameras successfully decreased criminal activity and enhanced traffic logistics in the city of Novi Sad

IP video surveillance with Axis network cameras was the next step in exploiting the full possibilities of this existing network. It is a huge benefit that the city of Novi Sad now has a centralized video data center which is able to effectively conduct traffic and citizen safety everywhere.“ Vladimir Knežević, Chief Technical Officer, JKP Informatika Novi Sad.


City development and urban planning require a high level of commitment and simultaneous deployment of all available resources. The City of Novi Sad requested a proposal for the procurement of an IP video surveillance solution that would be flexible enough to efficiently perform precise video monitoring of public places both day and night. The main objectives of the Novi Sad City surveillance system were to increase the common citizen’s security by monitoring educational institutions (pre-school, school and university campus), as well as surveillance of the most important city infrastructures. Not only was a centralized event management software solution with realtime information alerts and on-demand reports required, but the provision of HDTV quality network cameras was of equal importance.


In order to provide this solution the City of Novi Sad was equipped with Axis network cameras and Aimetis software for advanced video management and analytics. Due to innovative, leading technology and the widest camera model portfolio, Axis was chosen as the only network camera manufacturer which completely covered all the requirements and specifications of this city surveillance project. Based on its seamless platform of video management and market-leading analytics, innovative licensing and easy-to-use interface, Aimetis Symphony was used for central management of the IP video surveillance system and video analytics. This state-of-the-art intelligent software along with Axis HDTV network cameras made the IP video surveillance system much easier to use.


Novi Sad made it clear that the safety of citizens right down to the youngest child was top priority. The implementation of IP video surveillance in the city of Novi Sad rationalized the use of existing resources, improved city traffic logistics and enhanced the safety of the citizens.
