MSC Launches New Man Overboard Detection Technology

   October 13, 2017 ,   Accidents

MSC Cruises announced the launch of an innovative vanguard video surveillance system which offers even greater onboard security. In another cruise-industry-first, MSC developed the highly-sophisticated advanced system via collaboration with Bosch and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, global leaders in security technology.

The new integrated system is part of a larger MSC Cruises operation to optimize onboard security monitoring and will allow for the speediest intervention in unlikely event a person (object) falls overboard.

Following a successful pilot phase of stress-testing and software upgrades, the intelligent video capturing and analysis system is already operational – initially on the latest flagship of MSC Cruises, MSC Meraviglia.

The new system consists of a shield of intelligent optical and thermal video cameras providing nonstop comprehensive surveillance along the relevant exterior parts of the vessel. All captured video images are streamed to a Central Security Room in real-time. There, the video stream is monitored along with all other inputs from 1,200 HD CCTV cameras onboard the ship.
