VIVOTEK’s IP Solution Installed At Iran Zamin Bank In Tehran
VIVOTEK’s IP Solution Installed At Iran Zamin Bank In Tehran

VIVOTEK cameras with superior image quality and performance ensure safety and security in Zamin Bank The Iran Zamin Bank in Iran’s capital city, Tehran, is a non-government owned bank that was established in 2011. The bank takes pride in providing its customers with first-rate services and ensuring a safe and comfortable banking environment. The security system, equipped with some of VIVOTEK’s finest cameras, is just one testament to how much the bank values its clientele. Having entered the financial industry in the last decade, Iran Zamin Bank has the major advantage of keeping abreast of technological advancements, and is thus able to present new and distinguished services to its clients. Iran Zamin Bank, along with other Iran banks, plays a significant role in leading the nation’s economy forward. From Analog to IP Due to the high degree of sensitivity a bank surveillance system demands, Iran Zamin Bank decided early on to replace several of their analog cameras with IP options. The low image quality of analog presents potential security issues, especially when finely detailed analyses of video images are required, which may be the case in a bank branch setting. Additionally, the standardization solutions of analog cameras are deficient. The alternative, IP cameras, is not only much easier to operate, but also boasts solution credibility that far exceeds analog. Considering these factors, the manager of Iran Zamin Bank decided to exchange the analog cameras with the several digital IP cameras. The move was quite well received, as technological improvements via VIVOTEK eventually spread to every branch. Enhanced Security Inside and Outside Having already decided on an IP-based solution to bolster infrastructure, the next order of business was to weigh out the options. The manager of Iran Zamin Bank, in preparation for the security and surveillance system migration in all Iran Zamin Bank branches, began scouting for hardware and consulted with Prooya Fara Negar (PFN) Technology, VIVOTEK’s local distributor. With superior quality and a competitive price, VIVOTEK cameras proved to be their first choice. Once the decision was made, the PNR-C032R NVR model was promptly installed in all branches, providing much needed recording storage. The professional storage device has a 12 terabyte HDD storage capacity and comes with VIVOTEK ST7501software. As installments of the PNR-C032R model were under way branch wide, plans to put in various other VIVOTEK models were also in the making. VIVOTEK cameras with superiorimage quality and performanceare undoubtedly the idealchoices, fully cementingthe safety and security inZamin Bank The FD8135H was another model employed in all four branches, specifically for monitoring indoor areas. With one-megapixel resolution, night visibility and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology, the device can capture clear footage even when both bright and dark areas are present in the same field of view. Another addition to each branch was the FD8162. It has the capacity to capture sharp details of people coming and going through the bank’s main entrances. This 2-megapixel powerful camera also performs particularly well indoors; equipped with the WDR Enhancement technology feature, this camera ensures security through clarity, and a PNR-C064R NVR was installed for more storage. This model comes with 36 terabytes of HDD storage, plenty of space to record and store all that goes on in the bank. Moving to the exterior of the bank, the FD8372 camera, with 5-Megapixel or Full HD resolution at a superb video streaming up to 30 fps, was used for outdoor areas of the branches. When it came to the central building of the bank and its branches, still other VIVOTEK cameras were selected, including the FD8335H. Twenty units of this camera were installed to monitor parking lots and different floors within the branches. The IP8335H with the IP67-rated weatherproof housing, one-Megapixel resolution, and night visibility was therefore strategically positioned outdoors. Reliable Surveillance Strengthens the Protection William Ku, Vice President of VIVOTEK’s International Business Division, stated: “It’s great that we participated in the surveillance upgrade project of Iran Zamin Bank. As we know, the reliable security infrastructure in bank is important since it can not only act as the deterrent, but also provide the post-event footage as undisputable evidence. VIVOTEK cameras with superior image quality and performance are undoubtedly the ideal choices, fully cementing the safety and security in Zamin Bank.”

Hikvision Partners With SKOV To Create Smart Farm Management Solutions
Hikvision Partners With SKOV To Create Smart Farm Management Solutions

Hikvision cameras and a specially designed SKOV VMS allows handlers to monitor the pigs Hikvision worked with farm management solutions provider SKOV to bring the art of weighing pigs into the 21st Century, with the help of mini-dome cameras and a bespoke VMS system. The pig is one of the most populous large mammals in the world, with an estimated 986.6 million pigs at any one time. This also means, of course, that piggeries are big business, as pork is the most commonly meat consumed worldwide. Part of managing a piggery is to ensure that each pig is able to grow to its full potential. The average weight of a pig at market is 275 lbs, but keeping an eye on the weight of individual animals can be tricky. If a pig is smaller than it pen-mates, it is likely to be pushed away when it comes to feeding time. This means it will not grow to its full size. In this situation, pig farmers may move the smaller pigs into a separate pen, so they can get to the food and ‘catch up’ with their larger brothers and sisters. Methods And Challenges But how do you weigh a pig? Traditional methods involved a tape measure and many hands and were, of course, very time consuming to complete. And that was without the math part at the end! Later methods saw farmers installing weighing apparatus, which was costly, and also time consuming with handlers needing to ‘persuade’ individual pigs onto the scales. Another issue with this system was that accuracy could be affected, as it was hard to tell if the scales had just one pig on them. “The pig handlers need to drag the pigs physically to the scales, which is not only very hard, time-consuming work, but also stresses the pig out”, said Kasper Ronn Christensen, Strategic Purchaser at SKOV. “Stressed pigs don’t eat, which also affects their growth rate.” Hikvision Cameras And SKOV VMS Solution Enter a whole new innovative solution, using Hikvision cameras and a specially designed SKOV VMS. After testing various cameras, SKOV approached Hikvision because of the competitive price and clear, reliable pictures even at only 2MP resolution. That, combined with the ability to build a firmware specifically for their needs, persuaded SKOV to work with Hikvision. Between four and eight 2-line mini-dome cameras (DS-2CD2142FWD-I (4mm)) are placed in the pigpens, to allow handlers to see what’s going on and to monitor the growth progress of the pigs. These specific cameras were chosen because of the low amount of spare space in a pigpen and the importance of an affordable solution. Weight Calculation And Monitoring “We were looking for a solution that could be used by piggeries all over the world”, says Kasper Ronn Christensen. “That meant we needed to make it simple, practical and affordable. The fact that, even at a relatively low resolution of 2MP, clear actionable pictures were consistently available made these cameras a smart choice.” Connection to the SKOV VMS means that the pigs’ weights can be calculated and so monitored. The VMS also gives alarms if a pig doesn’t follow the required growth rate, so steps can be taken. The success of the project in Denmark means it can be replicated all over the world to help piggeries to manage their pigs and make sure they maximize their potential. SKOV is offering the solution to all regions with piggeries, including in Thailand, where they have a subsidiary. Digitalized Smart Farming Systems “The cameras are integrated and working as expected, so we can look to the future”, says Kasper Ronn Christensen. “We are really impressed with the way Hikvision adapted their firmware to our needs. I also love the innovative approach - who would have thought that a technology that was designed to help spot intruders could be used to ensure pigs grew to the correct weight!” Peter Guan, Channel and Marketing Director at Hikvision Europe, said: “We are heading to a future where traditional farming is digitalized into smart farming, where surveillance cameras are not only used for crime prevention at the farms, but also as useful tools for farmers. Hikvision’s ecosystem partner program allows easy software and hardware integration so that end users can benefit from an innovative and more powerful complete solution.”

VIVOTEK Fisheye Network Cameras Help Bialystok Update Municipal Traffic Monitoring System
VIVOTEK Fisheye Network Cameras Help Bialystok Update Municipal Traffic Monitoring System

Bialystok, a beautiful historic city of 300,000 in the northeast of Poland, is one of the nation’s major population centers. Devastated in World War II and languishing for a long period afterward, the city has seen a renaissance in recent years, with restoration of its beautiful architecture and modernization of infrastructure as the Polish economy has boomed. One particular change that has come upon this serene city with unexpected rapidity is the increase in car ownership, which has more than tripled in Poland since 2005. Over the last decade, the growing need for an up-to-date, comprehensive traffic monitoring system has become increasingly apparent. Surveillance Enhancement For Traffic Surges The growing need for an up-to-date, comprehensive traffic monitoring system has become increasingly apparentCameras were the most costly item within the traditional traffic surveillance system originally deployed in Bialystok. To capture as many angles as possible, large numbers of cameras were required, often several at each intersection. As well as being an eyesore, this also meant that the cost of linking and synchronizing the array of cameras to the central surveillance system was exorbitant. To avoid impacting traffic, which is heavy during the daylight hours, installation and construction work was usually carried out at night. The restricted hours for installation caused long delays in camera setups. Worse, the system itself no longer met the needs of the rapidly developing city. Despite the large numbers of cameras, the field of view of individual cameras was too narrow and when accidents happened it was difficult to try to piece together footage from several cameras in an attempt to reconstruct the incident. Often, there was no way to determine from the footage just who was at fault. A better solution was needed. Seamless Collaboration To Seamless Implementation Zarzad Dróg Miejskich (ZDM), the municipal unit responsible for the road system in Bialystok needed to revamp, simplify, and upgrade their inefficient traffic camera system, so they worked with systems software manager Siemens and engaged VIVOTEK’s local distributor Suma Solutions to come up with an answer that would meet their needs. Siemens developed the system software around technology provided by VIVOTEK, a provider of IP surveillance solutions, offers dedicated traffic surveillance and management solutions, and has recently released its remarkable FE8174V H.264 5-megapixel fisheye network camera. The hemispherical images captured on camera can be automatically retooled to conventional projection specifications for easy viewing The FE8174V is VIVOTEK’s fisheye network camera. This vandal-proof, WDR-enhanced, day/night camera features a detailed 5-megapixel resolution sensor with superior image quality. Its fisheye lens captures a 180° panoramic view when wall-mounted, and a stunning 360° surround view with no blind spots when mounted overhead. With its choice of display layouts—surround view, panoramic view, and regional view—it is the perfect solution for those who need coverage of wide, open areas as well as a high degree of flexibility. With the advanced image processing capabilities, the hemispherical images captured on camera can be automatically retooled to conventional projection specifications for easy viewing. As the camera’s primary application is outdoors and demands reliability in all conditions, a weather-proof IP66-rated and vandal-proof IK10-rated housing keeps the camera body clear of rain and dust and maintains functionality in all types of weather. The VIVOTEK FE8174V features a removable IR-cut filter, which is unquestionably the best choice for those who need a hardy, all-weather, 24/7 system with a full range of coverage. Enhanced Resolution Means Better Traffic Safety ZDM installed 130 VIVOTEK FE8174V cameras at intersections throughout Bialystok. Now, with far fewer cameras, traffic controllers can get a clear, sharp overview of the whole field without any blind spots.VIVOTEK’s fisheye camera dewarping capabilities allow monitors to adopt different presentation modes A single VIVOTEK FE8174V provides the coverage of four outdoor bullet cameras in one image, and has resulted in cost savings at the same time as providing more complete coverage. Fewer cameras has also meant a decrease in costs associated with the backend management platform, network communications equipment, and storage equipment; it has also protected the aesthetic properties of the city by decluttering the skyline. Further, VIVOTEK’s fisheye camera dewarping capabilities allow monitors to adopt different presentation modes. Now, Management Center operators can easily monitor and verify traffic incidents and use the image recognition software to increase traffic control efficiency. The city of Bialystok has finally achieved a traffic management and surveillance system that can keep pace with its rapid growth while remaining in harmony with the local culture and architecture.
