Images that move the world

In Geneva: Axis cameras provide information about the CEVA rail line project

“We’re extremely pleased with the progress monitoring of the CEVA construction sites thanks to Axis IP cameras and video services from STVS. We get full benefit from the high quality of the cameras and their low maintenance cost. At the same time, the images and videos captured daily open up whole new possibilities for keeping the public informed in a targeted and timely manner.” Caroline Monod, Communications Officer, CEVA.


The planned Cornavin–Eaux-Vives–Annemasse rail link, abbreviated CEVA, closes a central gap between the French and the Swiss rail networks in the Swiss Canton of Geneva. Right from the start, the CEVA officials were responsible for fully informing the public about the construction site and the progress of the project. Therefore, a network of IP cameras from the world-leading supplier Axis Communications in partnership with Axis partner STVS was installed at all six construction sites of the CEVA route.


As one of the IP video industry’s early adopters, STVS was commissioned in 2012 for installation and maintenance of the IP camera network on the CEVA construction site as well as the creation of professional time-lapse videos. For this purpose, STVS installed AXIS P1347 and AXIS P1357 Network Cameras — the only models on the market to meet CEVA’s requirements.


With the help of the Axis cameras, the progress of the construction site is continuously recorded. Depending on project status and need, clear time-lapse videos with high image quality are created for both internal use by CEVA and for communication with the public. CEVA officials can access the camera images at any time, enabling them to keep up to date on what is happening in the individual construction phases.
