Hybrid video monitoring

The Roman Catholic Mariazell Basilica is the most important pilgrimage site in Austria and among the most famous in Europe. A wooden Madonna, the Magna Mater Austriae, is worshipped in this 12th century church. The plaster stucco of the organ gallery and the organ console were created by the Viennese sculptor Johann Wagner in 1740. The ageing analogue recording system that was used to protect historic and cultural valuables and to monitor the constant stream of visitors was recently replaced by a modern hybrid system from ABUS.

Challenge and solution

Reducing data volume and motion-activated recording

  • Using two ABUS 32 channel HDVR (Hybrid Digital Video Recorder) systems
  • Highly efficient H.264 video compression technology greatly reduces data volumes
  • Motion-activated recording, a security feature of the integrated video management software also reduces data volumes

Efficient and simple operation and data export

  • With HDVR, you can view live images, record, playback, export and access the network simultaneously
  • Easily export data to a DVD using a DVD burner with a USB port
