Hikvision digital video recording solution secures West End City Center in Budapest
West End City Center, Budapest, Hungary 
West End City Center decided to use the products from Hikvision to guarantee the safety of the center

West End City Center, one of the best shopping centres in downtown Budapest, Hungary, is located at one of the busiest junctions of traffic and public transportation of the city. It is by far the largest center of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe. With around 400 shops that provide all kinds of services to local residence and tourists, including boutiques, restaurants, supermarket, travel agencies, telecom stores, and banks, as well as Hilton, the 5-star hotel chain, located inside of the shopping centre, West End City Center has been the gathering point for hundreds of people every day. Ensuring the safety of the people and assets, therefore, is critical for West End City Center.


The priority in security for West End City Center is to have a centralized platform that supports real-time viewing and high-definition playback to manage the surveillance systems in different shops, so that the security staff can easily get to know the security status in real time.

On the other hand, to store a huge amount of high-definition surveillance video for later retrieval is also one of the major concerns. It is necessary, therefore, for the adopted security devices to support larger storage capacity, and be able to transfer the video to DVDs while needed.


After a thorough investigation and research, West End City Center decided to use the products from Hikvision, the leading digital surveillance products supplier with the headquarters in China, to guarantee the safety of the center. There are in total 12 sets of Hikvision DS-8016-HFI Network DVRs and HK-1000 keyboards equipped in the surveillance system of the city centre.

DS-8016-HFI, Hikvision's third generation Network DVR, is an excellent match for the requirement of the city centre. The product has 16-channel video input and 16-channel audio input. Each video channel supports up to D1 resolution recording in real time, while DCIF, 2CIF, CIF and QCIF resolutions being the options. Another highlight is its multi-zone motion detection and mask functions to mask sensitive area, which fits into different security and privacy concerns of the city center.

DS-8016-HFI also supports up to 8 SATA hard disk drives for high-speed backup or external memory, which satisfies the requirement of large storage capacity.

"Compare to other suppliers, Hikvision's products have great advantage of high definition viewing, which enables us to see the details of the scenes around the centre and ensures the safety of the personnel and assets. Besides, the large storage capacity, easy copy to DVDs, and its reliable performance also make the product a perfect match for what we are looking for," said one of manager of West End City Center.
