VIVOTEK, the global leader in surveillance solutions and security has deployed its video surveillance systems across multiple retail locations of the television, internet, and telephony service provider, SBB in Serbia and Montenegro. The latest deployment has been conducted via VIVOTEK’s Serbian channel partner Netiks, and has equipped SBB with advanced video analytics capabilities and proactive surveillance. About 50 of VIVOTEK’s FD8166A ultra-mini fixed dome network cameras, featuring sophisticated design and built-in IEEE 802.3af compliant PoE technology, are a part of the current deployment and will closely monitor more than 450,000 visitors for various use cases, including security and business intelligence. Leveraging their CMOS sensors, these network cameras can capture 2-megapixel images with 1920×1080 resolution at 30 FPS (frames per second), and deliver ultra-crisp and clear images even in extremely bright and dark environments through WDR enhancement and 3D Noise Reduction. The all-weather cameras can also aptly function in adverse weather conditions using their defogging capabilities. The network cameras are set up alongside an easy-to-use VAST 2 software, which also is VIVOTEK’s top-of-the-line IP Video Management Software (VMS), to make everything work in perfect unison. But all of this merely serves as the groundwork for the specialized, people-counting solution that delivers valuable bi-directional data comprising critical insights in real-time to SBB. These insights include number of incoming customers, length of stays, peak times, and frequency of customer visits, which will help SBB in deriving significant value through Business Intelligence and a more optimal human resource management. Also, counting and monitoring data is directly computed by VIVOTEK systems, eliminating the need of a dedicated computer for the process.
Mr. Sanjeev Gulati, Country Manager, India & SAARC, VIVOTEK said, “VIVOTEK always strives to unleash the true potential of a business by providing the most superlative video surveillance solutions to its customers. We are delighted to have SBB onboard as one of our global partners and express our gratitude to Netiks, which has played a monumental role in the deployment. We are confident that this deployment will yield quantifiable results and enable SBB to streamline its operations while simultaneously benefiting from more proactive security.”
Till date, the solution has achieved 98 percent accuracy in counting people, despite the challenging areas that it has to cover. The system stores the data for as long as 90 days and issues push notifications to the designated authority or relevant operators. In order to ensure uninterrupted access to information on security and flow, the cost-effective cameras also support H.264 compression. This significantly reduces data size and minimizes post-deployment costs by minimizing network bandwidth requirement and enabling real-time monitoring of all camera systems across the company’s retail scene.
VIVOTEK has successfully deployed innumerable global video surveillance solutions including UNESCO-recognized National Library of Latvia, traffic monitoring projects in India, Warplane Heritage Museum in Canada, automated Skytrain surveillance in Taiwan, and one of the world’s seven wonders, the Ancient City of Jordan, now also adding SBB to its globally burgeoning video surveillance network.
