In the original, analogue-based surveillance system of the leading Taiwanese financial institution, the clarity of recorded images was limited and real-time viewing of video was not possible. Operation of the overall surveillance system did not facilitate immediate response to emergencies. Moreover, camera configuration was not flexible enough, resulting in difficulties with system deployment as well as involving high costs for expanding the existing system. Additionally, follow-up, maintenance and technical service of the equipment could not be performed as quickly as needed. In the face of these difficulties, the Taiwanese financial institution decided to replace its existing analogue system.
The new surveillance system based on Axis network cameras provides new advanced functionalities, combined with extreme ease of deployment and intelligence. It comprises the compact-size AXIS 207 Network Cameras which can effectively save network bandwidth, as well as the AXIS 215 PTZ Network Cameras which provide 360-degree monitoring. Moreover, the analogue CRT TVs that had acted as surveillance monitors at the back-end were replaced with digital LCD flat screens, providing image displays with improved sharpness. The analogue DVR system was also replaced by a network recording server.
After implementation of the new Axis network video solution, the flexibility of the camera configuration was remarkably improved in terms of the ability to add, remove, and relocate individual units. The quality of surveillance images was greatly improved, and prompt response to possible emergencies was made possible. Additionally, long-term maintenance and support services were set up, and the introduction of new video surveillance software facilitated the installation and management of surveillance equipment.
