4、 Network video monitoring architecture

The key equipment of digital network integrated monitoring system is network camera and platform monitoring system software. This project uses the network camera of axis company of Sweden and csvision network video management platform software of Yihua Zhongsheng to build the system. According to the requirements of the network video monitoring system in the production plant, combined with the actual situation, all video transmission and switching are mainly completed by wide dynamic high-speed network ball machine, high-definition network camera and csvision network video monitoring management platform software. The system structure is shown in Figure 1

Architecture, function and application scheme of network video monitoring system in plant area

Figure 1: structure diagram of network video monitoring system

1. Configuration of monitoring center

PC, network storage disk array and other equipment installed with client and server software of csvision video management platform are placed in the monitoring center of the production plant. The server is responsible for storing and forwarding the video stream sent by the front-end network camera. A single video management server supports 75 channels of D1 (calculated according to the 2MB code stream) image quality image storage and forwarding 400 channels of video stream at the same time. The server system can cascade multiple servers into a whole monitoring system by cascading, which is convenient for users.

The client software is responsible for decoding and displaying the real-time video or video data forwarded by the server. If a user needs to view the monitoring image, he only needs to install the client software of csvision monitoring platform. With the authorization of the central administrator, he can log on to the server through the client to realize the monitoring of the whole monitoring system. The client can be added according to the specific situation, as long as the PC is connected with the network, the center does not need to add any equipment. If there is a problem at the monitoring point, the person on duty shall inform the person on duty at the place of the accident in time or deal with it in person.

2. Network demand analysis

Front end monitoring point network bandwidth calculation: front end link construction is actually the problem of front-end network camera and monitoring center networking. Axis HD network camera and wide dynamic network high speed ball machine need 2MB bandwidth. Based on the maximum peak bandwidth of the monitoring center: the monitoring center is also the data processing center of the system, digital video monitoring will produce a lot of data, and the data flow and equipment exchange pressure will be brought in the transmission process. In order to achieve the high-speed stability of data transmission, Gigabit exchange machine is used as the core exchange equipment of the center.

3. Storage space calculation

The video storage adopts the centralized storage mode of the monitoring center, and the calculation method of the required disk array capacity: the bandwidth occupied by the network camera is about 2m / BPs, and the code rate of each channel (KB) / 8 = a (Note: dividing by 8 is the conversion from bit to byte, the unit of the device code rate is kbit, and the minimum unit of the disk capacity is byte); A × 3600 seconds × 24 hours = B (Note: B is the required storage space every day); B × Number of webcams × Video storage days = C (Note: C is the total storage space of all network cameras); The final “C” is the size of the video space needed, in kilobytes. According to 1000KB = 1MB, 1000mb = 1GB, 1000gb = 1TB, the total storage space required can be calculated.

According to the above calculation formula, single channel video storage needs about 880MB disk space per hour, and 24-hour video recording needs about 21GB disk space per day.

4. Security system

The security system considered in the design of the network monitoring system mainly includes physical security, user rights security, monitoring equipment management security, network congestion and so on.

1) Physical security. Physical security is mainly divided into device security and network security.

2) User authority security: for the user security of the whole system, it is recommended to use the identity secret authentication system to authenticate the users of the whole system. Users of each level of organization only need to open accounts and assign permissions in their own monitoring center. In this way, user rights can be set up (which can be subdivided into image browsing, control, voice and other rights).

3) Monitoring device management security: all the front-end monitoring information and permissions are managed by the device management server, and the permissions of the device management server are managed by the directory server, forming a unified management mechanism. All devices must be authenticated before they can log in.

4) Network congestion: the design scheme of video monitoring system in the production plant adopts the design concept of distributed multi server group, and uses streaming media technology to complete the storage and forwarding of video signals, so as to avoid the client directly accessing the front-end network camera, reduce the network traffic, and avoid the problem of network congestion caused by large traffic data, So that the whole system will not be paralyzed and can still operate normally when some subsystems fail. In the limited bandwidth, the following technologies are mainly used to avoid network congestion: rate control based on the originator, frame extraction strategy, packaging strategy and access strategy.

5. Main functions of monitoring platform
