Pattaya City CCTV

Securing the safety of people in Pattaya City, Thailand.
Originally the CCTV system was purchased to manage traffic in Pattaya. However, during the years that have followed it has been expanded to provide increased security for the millions that visit every year on vacation. So the system today covers parks, beaches and shopping areas. Recently, the system has also encompassed schools, places of worship and a hospital. The system runs on a mixture of Teleste products, a fully functioning VMX system, as well as video encoders from the MPX and MPC product lines, plus Ethernet switches.

The project has been carried out as part of the cooperation between the city government, Teleste and Point IT Consulting Co. Ltd. The wealth of experience and capabilities of our local Partner, Point IT Consulting Co. Ltd, has delivered a solution from a ‘one stop shop’ that has greatly improved the efficiency of the city government’s capabilities to carry out their duty of care.
