Wireless Remote Video Monitoring
An Emerson Smart Wireless Remote Video Monitoring Solution brings visual information into your control room.
Increase plant safety
Comply with regulations
Reduced cost
Secure and reliable communications
Full support service
Video surveillance is becoming an indispensible part of
process plant safety, security and operations. Using
wireless technology, mission-critical video feeds can now
be delivered to the control room, office buildings and other
areas in the plant in a highly flexible way that is not
possible with a wired solution.
Emerson’s Wireless Remote Video Monitoring provides a
cost-effective and fast approach for process plant security
surveillance and operations monitoring. The solution uses
high data throughput mesh Wi-Fi technology to transfer
video data. Additionally, the system can be deployed
much faster and with reduced deployment complexity.
Versions 9 and later of DeltaV Operate support video
integration through an ActiveX control.
Using IEEE 802.11abgn standards-based technology,
Emerson provides a fully secure, reliable Wi-Fi
communication link between the video cameras in your
plant and the central control room.
This scalable Wi-Fi network can be shared by many Smart
Wireless solutions for your plant-wide operations such as
field data backhaul, mobile worker, safety mustering, and
location tracking.
Support for a remote video monitoring solution installed by
Emerson is provided through Emerson’s SureService™

Increase plant safety. Video monitoring provides 24x7
surveillance of the plant and its operations and enables
faster response and earlier detection of dangerous
situations to workers.
Comply with regulations. Digital video recording of
visual data on flare, smoke stack or other emissions
provides evidence of regulation compliance to local
authorities. Video evidence of an emission’s duration can
reduce regulatory fines to the shortest period possible by
showing when the emission started and ended.
Scalable. Emerson can provide a wireless network
solution that exactly meets your needs today, while
providing flexibility for future wireless mesh infrastructure
growth as your needs expand. Emerson’s Smart Wireless
Plant Solutions can also scale to the types of applications
you utilize in your wireless plant. For example, each Wi-Fi
mesh node installed to communicate video back to the
central control room can also backhaul remote
WirelessHART® data, or be used as a “hot spot” for your
mobile workers to access live plant data, or track
personnel with Wi-Fi RFID tags.
Reduced cost. When compared to the cost of
engineering and trenching a fiber-optic cable to each of
the video cameras, a wireless remote video solution can
be deployed for less cost. Moving or adding wired
cameras is cost prohibitive, especially when compared to
the flexibility of a wireless solution.
Safer deployment. Trenching a fiber-optic cable in a
live process area puts workers in the process area for long
periods of time – exposing them to potential hazards and
risking disruptions to process operations.
Secure and reliable communications. All
communications on the wireless plant network are fully
secure using AES 128-bit encryption. The integrity of the
wireless communication network is continuously monitored
and alerts can be sent to administrators if degradation of
the wireless signal is detected.
Full support service. Emerson SureService provides
full 24/7 support for customers who have purchased and
deployed a wireless video solution from Emerson.
Wireless Remote Video Monitoring
Workforce Safety
Video cameras can be installed to monitor workers in
hazardous areas within the plant or in remote tank farms
during normal operations to monitor their safety. Video
images can be checked prior to sending a worker into a
potentially hazardous or remote part of the plant to ensure
that they are not being placed in danger.
Process Monitoring
Live video feeds can augment the operator’s control of
volatile processes. Video analytics that monitor the pixel
image of the camera can trigger process automation
alarms to alert the control room operator to an abnormal
situation based on video camera data.
Emissions Monitoring
Visually recorded information of emissions can serve as
evidence of emissions for regulatory compliance and can
reduce potential fines in the absence of other verifiable
All the plant’s video information can be recorded and
stored on a central server that can store days, weeks or
even months of video data depending on your needs or to
comply with emissions regulations. Data can be
permanently stored offline on optical disks if required.
Wireless Engineering Services
Wireless engineering services are critical to the success of
a wireless plant network deployment. Emerson offers a
comprehensive services portfolio to help you design and
deploy a wireless remote video monitoring solution.

Emerson engineers visit your plant site to conduct a Radio
Frequency (RF) study, determine access point locations
and collect other on-site information.
Network Design and Planning
Based on the site survey results and your video system
requirements, Emerson engineers design the overall
wireless mesh architecture including the detailed network
infrastructure, network monitoring tools, and integrated
Physical Network Installation Management
Video Monitoring Applications

DeltaV Operate with integrated video.
DeltaV Operate with Live Video
New with DeltaV versions 9 or later, Emerson Wireless
Services can embed live video through an ActiveX control
that allows the operator to pan, tilt, or zoom the camera
view through the Operate interface or even switch camera
video feeds. The benefits of having a live video feed
embedded within an operator display are many and
Enables an additional “all-clear” visual before the
execution of a process start-up, shut-down, or turnaround. Allows operators to monitor hazardous areas
alongside process information.
In cases of plants that are lightly staffed, an operator can
be a pair of additional eyes on the process area, remote
plant areas, or site perimeter.

Example Wireless Remote Video Monitoring solution architecture.
Video Equipment
The video images of all the cameras can be configured to
support a variety of image resolutions and video frame
rates which affects the wireless bandwidth required to
transmit the video stream and the amount of disk storage
required to keep the video images online.
Fixed IP Cameras
There are several color, high resolution video cameras to
choose from that can be installed within the plant. Fixed
cameras are required for video analytic capabilities and
are less expensive than point-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras.
Point-Tilt-Zoom Cameras
Typically housed in domed enclosures, these cameras
offer the user the ability to visually survey a large area with
a single camera.
Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Server
All video images are centrally recorded, stored and served
to other applications from the DVR server which is
typically located on the plant’s office network.
Digital Display System
This workstation runs the video display software that
enables the user to monitor many video feeds
simultaneously. From this multi-video display, a single
camera can be selected to enable the operator to change
the camera’s direction or to display historical video data.

Wireless Mesh Access Point (MAP)
The MAPs deployed in your plant are Class I, Div 2 or
ATEX Zone 2 certified equipment. The Smart Wireless
Gateway is installed near the MAP with a wired Ethernet
connection. The MAP wirelessly connects the video
stream back to the plant network. The MAP’s IEEE
802.11n radio can also be enabled to give your field
personnel “hot spot” Wi-Fi access to your plant or office
network applications. The Root AP (RAP) connects the
wireless network to the wired one. The Smart Wireless
Gateway 1552WU can also be part of the Wireless
Remote Video Monitoring solution as compatible
equipment for the Wi-Fi infrastructure.
Managed Switch
The managed switch is the device which connects the
wireless network with the wired network. The wireless LAN
controller and wireless control system are also connected
through the managed switch.
Wireless LAN Controller
The wireless LAN controller is the device that is
responsible for network-wide wireless functions such as
security policies, intrusion prevention, RF management,
Quality of Service (QoS), and mobility.
